Update...

Stratocu deck continues to migrate eastward across East Texas this
evening ahead of a weak cool front. Very little noticeable change
with this front other than a wind shift to the north/northwest and the brief
period of cloud cover. For this update, did adjust sky cover to
account for the current satellite trends and also loaded latest
obs trends for temperatures and dew points. However, these will
not affect the current forecast low temperatures. Therefore, no
other changes are needed at this time. Updated text products have
already been issued.
