.DISCUSSION...
Lingering high clouds have helped to keep temperatures down a few
degrees across much of SE TX this afternoon. These clouds are ex-
pected to move out tonight given the persistent NW flow aloft and
with the clearing skies/light winds, some very patchy fog will be
possible overnight/early tomorrow morning. The return of more SE/
S winds (and corresponding increase of low-level moisture) tomor-
row along with more sun/daytime heating will help to produce more
summer-like conditions tomorrow.

Low rain chances will be returning to the forecast by the weekend
as moisture levels continue to deepen and the seabreeze becomes a
little more active during the afternoons near the coast. However,
storm coverage will be hampered over most inland locations by the
building upper ridge. Highs should

Extended guidance coming in a bit more wet for next week with PWs
progged to climb into the 2.0-2.3" range and models weakening the
upper ridge over the region. Will keep with a general 20% POP for
this time period at this time. 41
