Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
932 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...Primary change to inherited forecast was to increase
wind speeds along the coast tonight and areawide for Sunday.
Moderate onshore flow continues along the coast this evening in
wake of a relatively strong /for March standards/ seabreeze that
pushed well into the Brush Country. A strong southerly LLJ is prog
to develop after midnight as a s/w ridge shifts east and heights
and associated surface pressures lower across the High Plains as
the next s/w trough digs in. As the LLJ develops, areas of stratus
should develop across S TX with high near surface moisture values
possibly leading to reduced visibilities /haze and quasifog/. LLJ
should mix to the surface by Sun afternoon with breezy to windy
conditions prevailing. Core of LLJ sets up along the coast for
mid/late afternoon Sunday which is when windiest conditions
should occur across the coastal counties.

Other change to inherited forecast was to increase dewpoints
overnight given expected strengthening WAA regime. Forecast min
temps are likely a little low, but if LLJ is slower to develop
then current values may pan out. Thus...made no changes to
forecast lows at this time.
