    /12z TAFs/
    Stratus is once again quite splotchy this morning across the Hill
    Country, but will make a run at the Waco TAF site shortly. Some
    brief IFR cigs appear possible through about 14z, before a rapid
    improvement to MVFR and then VFR by 16z occurs. Across the
    Metroplex, can't rule out cigs taking a brief dip to FL025 towards
    15-16z, but this isn't worth a mention in the TAFs. Yesterday's
    mid-level weakness is still present, and will drift a bit farther
    to the northwest today. This may allow showers and some
    thunderstorms to focus within a band of enhanced instability just
    to the north and east of the Metroplex terminals. Coverage of any
    storms appears too low for a TS mention, but will introduce VCSH
    during peak-heating this afternoon. With somewhat higher coverage
    of storms off to the north and east, some impacts to
    east/northbound departures and arrivals through the Bonham
    cornerpost will be possible. To the south, activity may push
    across Waco with the sea breeze, and have inserted a VCSH mention
    from 23-02z to account for this potential.
    South to southeast winds of less than 12 kts will persist through
    the TAF period.
