.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail through the afternoon and evening
across South Texas with few-scattered CU field. Main issue will be
the wind. S to SE winds will gust 25-35 kts through the afternoon
and early evening then diminish slightly after sunset. Some gusts
at CRP and LRD could continue overnight around 25 kts. Broken
MVFR stratus may again develop overnight between 06Z-12Z. A
pacific cold front will approach the region Friday morning, moving
through LRD between 15Z-18Z and through CRP/VCT around 21Z. A few
SHRAs and possibly TSRAs will be possible ahead of the front
along and east of a VCT-ALI line.

.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 1122 AM CDT Thu Mar 23 2017
 by National Weather Service AUSTIN/SAN ANTONIO TX/

DISCUSSION...
Overall, the current forecast remains on track. Daytime heating
and mixing have dissipated the morning fog, leaving mostly sunny
to partly cloudy skies for the remainder of this morning.
Otherwise, gusty south winds are already in place and will
continue through early evening across the region. The Wind
Advisory for the southern Coastal Bend looks good and no changes
will be made at this time. The Small Craft Advisory for the
southern bays is also on track.
