.AVIATION...

A low level jet will strengthen over the Permian Basin overnight,
and aid low level moisture transport northwestward.  Expect MVFR, if
not high end IFR, ceilings to develop and move over KMAF and KHOB,
but there is not enough certainty to include them at KINK.  Will
include low level wind shear at KMAF from 28/09Z to 28/14Z when the
low level jet will shift off to the northeast.  Southwesterly winds
will increase at all area terminals behind the mid/high clouds
moving eastward over the region.
