.AVIATION...

MVFR/IFR ceilings are affecting all but CNM and HOB at issuance,
though slow and gradual improvement to VFR is expected overnight
for INK, PEQ, and MAF. FST will likely see lower ceilings through
Monday morning, with improvement to VFR around 18Z. Breezy
N/NE winds will continue, though speeds should decrease after
18Z. Otherwise, a few showers could affect area terminals through
Monday morning, though have only included TEMPO mention at MAF
with MVFR visibility the first few hours of the forecast period.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 1149 PM CDT SUN SEP 25 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Have sent a late evening update to cancel the watch and lower PoPs.
There is good indications of divergence (4h streamlines) and
moisture in place, but instability lacking. MCS to the SE will
tend to preclude concerns for development farther NW. As such we
have lowered PoPs to chance in most areas, except small area of
likely across the far S. Also have decreased the winds some using
latest data. Updates are out. Winds are a little slow coming up
thru GDP but are trending up for now.
