VFR conditions will continue through the 23/06Z TAF period.
Extensive areas of AC cigs will continue to shift S across the
region overnight through much of Monday morning, gradually
diminishing/scattering out over extreme NE TX/SW AR by midday, and
across the remainder of E TX/much of N LA during the afternoon.
Sct areas of -RA will remain possible within these AC cigs
overnight through Monday morning, ahead of a shortwave over the
Mid-South that will dive S across the Lower MS Valley. While these
AC cigs should eventually scatter out Monday afternoon, a sct cu
field N of a weak sfc front over extreme NE TX/N LA will advect
SSW into SW AR/Ncntrl LA Monday afternoon, affecting primarily the
ELD/MLU terminals. An elevated cu field may also develop along the
front over Deep E TX by mid to late afternoon, before the front
backdoors SW out of the region over Cntrl LA/SE TX Monday evening. 
Lt/Vrb winds tonight over SW AR/extreme Nrn LA/NE TX, and light 
SW winds over Deep E TX/Ncntrl LA, will become NNE 5-8kts over 
much of the region after 15Z Monday, although Deep E TX will 
remain WSW through much of the day ahead of the weak sfc front.
