.DISCUSSION...

Much earlier dissipation of convection tonight, compared to last
couple of evenings. Will remove POPs and mention of showers/storms
from the small area that had them, and go with fair conditions for
the rest of the night.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF Discussion.

VFR conditions prevail through Sunday morning, with some passing
high-level/cirrus clouds overnight thanks to blow-off from earlier
Gulf coast showers/storms. Surface winds will range from calm to
very light with an easterly component.

For Sunday, budding cumulus should follow its usual summertime
appearance by mid-day. Spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms
are expected, though limited coverage precludes mentions in TAFs at
this time; however, early assessments show ASN-ANB and TOI as
standing the best chance for having vicinity activity.
Satellite/radar trends nearing Sunday`s 18Z TAFs will better depict
any possible impacts.

89/14

.FIRE WEATHER...

Generally dry conditions with above average temperatures will continue
thru the middle of next week, with only isolated afternoon storms
each day. Critical fire weather conditions are not expected.

&&

.BMX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
None.
