.AVIATION...
The main aviation concern for this TAF cycle will be low cigs likely
affecting all terminals for the next 24 hours. Currently have MVFR
ceilings across the board with elevated E/NE winds in place. Some
light radar returns now showing up over SE NM and western Permian
Basin. Expect to see light snow at CNM then spread east and south
through at least Friday morning. Visibility restrictions will be
possible at times with periods of heavier snow. MVFR cigs look to
affect all terminals through much of the day Friday. The NAM MOS
continues to show ceilings drop to IFR Friday evening but confidence
is too low to include mention attm. For now, will continue MVFR
through the TAF period and make adjustments if needed.
