Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
1021 AM CDT TUE SEP 27 2016

.DISCUSSION...Convection remains limited to the offshore waters
this morning in closer proximity to the frontal boundary just east
of the area. Air mass remains moist behind the front with 12Z CRP
showing precipitable water value near 2.2 inches. Latest mesoscale
models show isolated showers will be possible this afternoon over
the coastal plains to the southern Brush Country with better
chances for convection remaining over the coastal waters. Clouds
will linger behind the front today. Temperatures will struggle to
reach 80 degrees over the western Brush Country. Lowered high
temperatures for today a few degrees especially west.

AVIATION...

Little to no change to previous forecast. Most locations are
experiencing MVFR cigs and those conditions will remain so for at
least the first few hours before conditions improve. Still looks
as if there could be a few showers over the southern areas, mainly
KCRP but also kept KALI during the afternoon. Thus, kept the TEMPO
SHRA there. Think showers less likely at KVCT so removed them from
the forecast. No rainfall expected at KLRD. Generally expect a
north wind today and through most of the period most terminals
forecasts.
