Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
1227 PM CDT MON MAY 30 2016

.DISCUSSION...18Z Aviation discussion is below synoptic update.
MCS has pushed offshore/diminished this morning with subsident
airmass on the backside overspreading S TX. However...despite
cold pool mixing to surface...clearing skies this afternoon should
allow for warming which may be sufficient for an isolated
shower/storm to redevelop. Better chances for afternoon convection
are currently expected to exist W and NW of the CWA. Will
continue to monitor and provide any additional afternoon updates
with main afternoon forecast package.

&&

.AVIATION...VFR this aftn as subsident airmass prevails across S
TX in wake of mrng convection. Sct CIGS around 4/5kft xpctd with
CIGS slowly lowering overnight /but generally clear enough for VFR
cloud conditions to prevail/. VSBYS may lower to MVFR overnight at
KVCT due to saturated soils and light sfc winds...but quickly
return to VFR levels by mid mrng. Period of MVFR CIGS possible at
KLRD shortly after sunrise thru mid mrng. Iso SHRA/TSRA possible
thru the taf period, but confidence not high enough at any one
site to include mention in TAFs attm.
