.UPDATE...

Issued update to have the High Wind Warning start earlier.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

Latest model guidance is showing that high winds will likely start
in the higher elevations of the Guadalupe Mountains this evening
with winds increasing in the lower elevations on Thursday. The
High Wind Warning is now starting at 00z to account for the
earlier arrival of the high winds.

&&

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions are expected to prevail overnight, although there is
an outside chance MVFR fog will form at some of the terminals.  Will
leave mention of fog out for now since it appears surface winds will
keep enough mixing going to prevent much fog from developing.
Southwest to west winds will increase at all terminals Thursday
prior to 19/18Z.  Sustained winds of 20 to 25kt, and gusts near
35kt, will be possible at all sites through the afternoon.
