AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX
935 PM CST TUE MAR 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...A MIX OF FOG AND LOW CLOUD DECK ARE SPREAD ACROSS SOUTH
TEXAS CURRENTLY. WARM BOUNDARY FINALLY PUSHING INLAND HAS ALLOWED
FOR MORE S TO SE WINDS TO DEVELOP FROM VCT TO CRP TO LRD. N TO NE
FLOW REMAIN AHEAD OF BOUNDARY ACROSS THE NORTHERN BRUSH COUNTRY
AND NORTHERN RIO GRANDE PLAINS. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR WARMER
TEMPERATURES TONIGHT ACROSS THE REGION...WITH LOWS IN THE LOW TO
MID 60S ACROSS ALL AREAS EXCEPT THE NORTHWEST COUNTIES (UPPER 50S
THERE). ALONG THE BAYS AND NEARSHORE WATERS DENSE FOG HAS BEEN
PERSISTING. SMALLER AREAS OF DENSE FOG HAVE BRIEFLY PUSHED INLAND
ALONG THE SOUTHERN COASTAL BEND...BEFORE QUICKLY THINNING AGAIN.
THOUGH VSBYS HAVE BEEN BOUNCING UP AND DOWN ALONG THE COAST (WITH
JUST PATCHY FOG ACROSS INLAND AREAS)...GENERALLY EXPECT FOG TO
REMAIN ABOVE DENSE FOG ADVISORY CRITERIA AT THIS TIME...WITH
MAINLY A MIX OF LOW CLOUDS AND PATCHY FOG INLAND AND AREAS OF FOG
ALONG THE COAST. HOWEVER...CONFIDENCE IS NOT ALL THAT HIGH IN THIS
VARIABLE KIND OF SITUATION...AND CANNOT RULE OUT ANY FUTURE
UPDATES OVERNIGHT FOR DENSE FOG ADVISORIES. THAT SAID...DO EXPECT
DENSE FOG TO LINGER OVER THE BAYS AND NEARSHORE WATERS TONIGHT AS
WARMER...MOIST AIR PUSHES OVER THE COOLER WATERS. MARINE DENSE FOG
ADVISORY HAS BEEN EXTENDED THROUGH TO EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING.
