Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
1038 AM CDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...Water vapor imagery shows a weak upper low over
Coahuila moving slowly westward. 12Z CRP sounding along with GOES
16 precipitable water image indicated higher moisture axis along
the coast with PWAT values around 2 inches. With weak low level
convergence along sea breeze boundary and some weak assistance for
lift with divergence aloft to the east of the upper low,
convective activity could become scattered in coverage over the
inland coastal plains into the eastern Brush Country this
afternoon. Latest HRRR/RAP models indicated this possibility.
Pushed rain chances farther west over the Brush Country this
afternoon with slight chance in Laredo. Convection is expected to
diminish before 00Z Thursday. Made adjustments to diminish the
expected cloud cover slightly this afternoon. Dewpoint temps are
not quite as high as expected for this morning. Made slight
adjustments to lower them but should still reach 110 degrees or
above in the Heat Advisory area this afternoon. No changes were
made to the advisory.
