.DISCUSSION...

GOING TO HOLD ONE MORE HOUR BEFORE UPDATING THE POPS FOR THE REST
OF THE NIGHT AS THE RAIN IS SLOWLY FADING AWAY WITH THE LOSS OF
THE HEATING. ACTUALLY GOT UP TO 90 DEGREES IN A FEW AREAS IN THE
SOUTHEAST BEFORE THE RAIN MOVED IN. AND BOY DID IT MOVE IN...SOME
PLACES IN THE EAST SAW BETWEEN 3 AND 4 INCHES OF RAIN THIS
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. AREAS IN THE SOUTHEAST WERE AREAS
THAT REALLY NEEDED THIS TYPE OF RAIN AS WE MOVE CLOSER TO THE
SUMMER MONTHS. WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO SEE A DECREASE IN COVERAGE
WITH GENERALLY JUST ISOLATED TO SCATTERED RAIN SHOWERS AFTER
MIDNIGHT AND POSSIBLY EVEN JUST ISOLATED AFTER 4 AM. LOW CLOUDS
AND OR FOG WILL ONCE AGAIN DEVELOP AND WILL NEED TO BE MONITORED
OVERNIGHT. OTHER THAN POPS AND WEATHER NOT MUCH OF AN UPDATE WILL
BE NEEDED.

.AVIATION...
06Z TAF DISCUSSION.

PATCHY FOG/LOW CLOUDS MAY ONCE AGAIN BE POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT AT ALL
SITES. LOOKS LIKE THE BOUNDARY MOVES BACK WEST TODAY WITH THE
BEST CHANCES AT NORTH AND WEST OF I-20. WITH THAT SAID THOUGHT
THERE IS AT LEAST A CHANCE FOR VCTS AT ALL SITES AFTER 19Z SO
INCLUDED THIS FOR THE AFTERNOON.
