    Strengthening lift associated with an approaching upper low is
    resulting in an increase in convection near and west of the DFW
    Metroplex. As one splitting storm in the Dallas area exits to the
    east, additional thunderstorms will encroach on the western part
    of the DFW TRACON before affecting the Metroplex TAFs directly
    during he 02-06Z timeframe. Precipitation will likely continue
    periodically overnight with a decrease in intensity after
    midnight. Most activity will remain north of the Waco area
    Showers and thunderstorms will ramp up again Wednesday morning as
    the upper low moves into Southwest Texas. The most recent hi-
    resolution guidance indicates rain with occasional embedded
    thunder at all airports during the morning hours. The main round
    of convection should affect the region during the Wednesday
    afternoon hours before exiting to the east of the area Wednesday
    evening. Additional wrap-around showers may occur Wednesday night
    and Thursday as the system moves into East Texas, but the
    possibility of thunderstorms will be low during that time.
    As far as winds are concerned, southeast winds will prevail in the
    Metroplex until Wednesday afternoon when the front finally pushes
    southeast. The exception will be variable winds associated with
    occasional thunderstorms.
