.AVIATION...
Scattered cirrus and VFR conditions across the region this
morning. Expecting some convection to develop across the northern
and eastern sections of the region later today and overnight. 
Decided to add VCTS to the TXK/ELD/MLU terminals at 17/00z to 
account for this. Tafs could need amending if convection develops 
earlier and/or moves further south. Otherwise, expect a growing 
cu field and VFR conditions to prevail through the daytime hours 
today and diminish overnight across the remaining Tafs.

Light south winds will become southwest near 10kts or less for 
today before diminishing to light after 17/00z. /20/
