.AVIATION...

Persistence rules. KMAF VWP shows a 30+kt LLJ right off the deck
tonight, w/GOES cloud products showing MVFR stratus already
developing over the Lwr Trans Pecos. Models/buffer soundings bring
these cigs into KMAF (IFR) and KINK (MVFR) overnight, and
persisting into the late morning or even early afternoon.
Convective temps will be harder to reach this afternoon, w/a low-
based cu field expected to develop only KCNM/KPEQ/KFST, w/little
chances of convection. A 35+kt LLJ is forecast to redevelop near
the end of the forecast period near KFST.
