    Concerns---Gradual wind shift and ceiling trends.
    
    VFR currently prevails at all TAFs this afternoon in the wake of
    a cold front. A few showers and perhaps a thunderstorm or two may
    develop to the south and east of ACT where activity should remain
    late this afternoon and into the evening. The cold front will
    stall and lift northward---as a warm front---through the
    overnight hours. East winds will accompany the warm frontal
    passage along with the potential for MVFR and occasional IFR cigs
    starting just after midnight and continuing through the Monday
    morning push. There is a chance for BR or even FG...but breezy
    winds should preclude this threat. Trends will need to be
    monitored, however, as weaker low level winds could result in IFR
    or LIFR vsby. Confidence in MVFR cigs occurring at at all
    terminals is high...with medium confidence in IFR cigs. There does
    appear to be weak ascent associated with the front, so I cannot
    rule out a period or two of showers...but this potential looks
    greatest to the west of I-35. Otherwise, increasing southerly flow
    is anticipated from mid-morning Monday through Monday evening as
    surface winds crank to near 20 knots.
