AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX
1238 AM CDT THU APR 17 2014

.DISCUSSION...UPDATED FOR 06Z AVIATION.

&&

.AVIATION...NOT TOO MANY CHANGES TO THE 00Z FORECAST PACKAGE. HAVE
INCLUDED A MENTION OF LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR AT KLRD DUE TO THE
PRESENCE OF A RELATIVELY STRONG LLJ OFF THE SURFACE. SKIES WILL
GRADUALLY CLOUD UP TO MVFR CEILINGS TONIGHT AND REMAIN MVFR
THROUGHOUT THE DAY AT KALI KCRP AND KVCT. KLRD SHOULD RETURN TO
VFR CEILINGS BY THE AFTERNOON. FOG IS A POSSIBILITY IF ENOUGH
RADIATIONAL COOLING OCCURS...BUT HIGH CLOUDS MOVING ACROSS THE
REGION MAY PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING. ABUNDANT MOISTURE AND A
WEAK SHORTWAVE MOVING THROUGH THE REGION WILL ALLOW FOR ISOLATED
SHOWERS OVER EASTERN TERMINALS STARTING AFTER SUNRISE AND
CONTINUING THROUGH THE END OF THE PERIOD. COVERAGE IS CURRENTLY
NOT EXPECTED TO BE HIGH ENOUGH TO WARRANT A MENTION OF VICINITY
SHOWERS IN THE TAFS. WINDS WILL SHIFT EAST BY THE LATE AFTERNOON
IN ADVANCE OF A WEAK COLD FRONT FORECAST TO STALL OVER CENTRAL
TEXAS. CEILINGS WILL LOWER TO LOW END MVFR/POSSIBLE IFR BY 06Z
TOMORROW.
