.AVIATION...
For the 23/00z TAFs, VFR conditions should prevail with abundant
mid and high level cloud cover for the next 24 hours. Regional
radar loops show a large area of light rain across Central Texas,
Deep East Texas, and Central Louisiana. Across our area, most of
this rain is evaporating before it reaches the surface due to a
very dry low-level airmass. However, the atmosphere should
gradually saturate from the top-down, and aided by a cold front 
that will move from north to south across the area during the day 
Tuesday, rain should develop across much of Deep East Texas. This
should lead to occasional -SHRA for much of the daytime hours of
Tuesday at KLFK. No precipitation is expected at the remainder of
the TAF sites for this cycle.
