    /12Z TAFs/
    Metroplex: VFR with southeast flow.
    Central Texas: morning stratus, afternoon showers possible.
    A tropical low along the Texas coast will back the surface winds,
    maintaining a significant easterly component the next few days.
    The influx of moisture will be more pronounced into Central Texas
    where the potential for MVFR ceilings will increase each morning.
    Although only patchy stratocu are expected at Waco this morning, a
    more uniform deck should arrive around daybreak Wednesday morning.
    VFR ceilings will be possible in the Metroplex by Wednesday
    afternoon, but the first MVFR stratus intrusion into Dallas/Fort
    Worth won't be until Thursday morning.
    The precipitation associated with the tropical feature will expand
    in areal coverage with daytime heating. This activity may disrupt
    south departures and traffic inbound through the Cedar Creek
    cornerpost, but the bulk of the showers and storms should remain
    south and east of KACT. VCSH may be needed in the Waco TAF this
    afternoon, but the potential is too low to needless complicate the
    forecast now. As the tropical feature moves inland, better rain
    chances (with embedded thunderstorms) are expected Wednesday, with
    Central Texas seeing the greater potential. The main event for all
    TAF sites looks to be Thursday and Friday, which is well beyond
    the scope of the TAFs.
