    /18Z TAFS/
    
    The extensive low clouds continue to erode late this morning and
    have cleared all of the major airports with the exception of Waco.
    A gradual scattering over the next hour or so is expected there
    with VFR conditions prevailing the rest of the afternoon. There
    are still extensive IFR cigs/vis just east of the major airports
    and while some scattering is expected, much of the low moisture
    will remain in place. Expect another round of low clouds tonight
    as moisture spills back westward ahead of a strong upper
    disturbance. We'll have conditions deteriorating again after dark
    with MVFR cigs by 02Z at the major airports and some IFR cigs
    later during the overnight and early Sunday morning hours.
    
    As the strong upper trough gets closer tomorrow, a Pacific cold
    front will begin to race eastward. Winds will become more
    southwesterly during the morning hours and cigs/vis will begin to
    improve. Scattered showers are likely to develop around midday
    near the I-35 corridor and we'll keep the VCSH in for DFW/DAL/GKY
    with the expectation that deeper convection will get going farther
    east during the afternoon hours. This is not likely to directly
    impact the airports but will have an impact on eastbound
    departures/arrivals. Winds will become west-southwest behind the
    Pacific front and more westerly into late Sunday night/Monday
    morning.
