Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
1143 AM CST Tue Dec 6 2016

.AVIATION...
A weak front will move into SE Texas this afternoon and tonight.
The front may hang up before getting to the coast or wash out as
most models are showing winds becoming easterly near the coast.
The cold air with the front is rather shallow (about 2800 feet or
so) and will lead to at least MVFR conditions developing from
north-to- south. There is a good chance IFR or lower conditions
could develop given what was occurring to the north of KCLL and
KUTS late this morning. Best chances for the lower conditions will
be over the northern sites but some of the guidance was showing
some potential even down to KGLS after 06Z tonight. Conditions may
slowly improve late Wednesday morning into the afternoon.

For planning purposes in the longer term, a stronger cold front
will move through Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.
There are chances for lower ceilings ahead of this system with
strong winds developing behind the front on Thursday.
