.DISCUSSION...
Wildfires in Jefferson, Matagorda and Trinity Counties continue to
show up on satellite imagery. Transport winds have veered to the
southeast at 5-10kt and should continue that way until late evening.
But late tonight they`re forecast to weaken and back to the east
once again. Mixing heights will fall pretty quickly after sunset. We
should get pretty good mixing again by mid morning. Moisture levels
begin to increase tonight and increase significantly late Thursday
and Friday as onshore winds strengthen. Rain chances will increase
on Friday and should remain high through the weekend..
