VFR conditions will continue through the 14/06Z TAF period. An
extensive cirrus shield has shown signs of gradually building more
NNE across E TX/N LA late this evening, and see no reason for
this not to continue through the period as an upper low over Baja
is reinforced by a digging upper trough diving S through the
Rockies, thus providing a WSW flow aloft over the region. In 
addition, a weak cold front extending from Wcntrl TX through the 
DFW Metroplex into SE OK/Wrn and Nrn AR will gradually seep S into
NE TX/SW AR through/shortly after daybreak Thursday, eventually 
drifting S across and S of the I-20 corridor during the afternoon.
The cirrus shield is expected to expand NE across much of the 
region during the afternoon/evening, with some post-frontal cu 
possible over NE TX/SE OK/SW AR just beyond the end of this TAF 
period. Light SW or Lt/Vrb winds tonight will become NNE 6-9kts 
with the fropa Thursday. /15/
