Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
124 PM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017

.AVIATION...
Will continue with the VFR/mostly dry forecast for the SE TX TAFS
through tonight with only brief MVFR CIGS around sunrise. Onshore
winds remain in place but not quite as gusty today given the weak-
er pressure gradient. Some isolated SHRA possible late this after-
noon but should remain just east of the bulk of our sites. A weak
front moving into the northern portions of the area tonight could
bring some isolated activity late tomorrow afternoon. 41

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1027 AM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017/

UPDATE...
Made a few tweaks to forecast sky cover but little else as
looking at another hot humid day with heat indices peaking at 102F
to 106F. Cant rule out an isolated shower but airmass capped so
not thinking any more than that today. Better chance tomorrow with
front approaching from N and possible MCS making a run at at
least northern zones. 18
