.DISCUSSION...
VIS SATELLITE IMAGERY THIS MORNING SHOWING CLEAR SKIES ACROSS OUR
REGION BUT MOISTURE POOLING DOWN ACROSS SW LA/SE TX IS DESTINED TO
RETURN NORTH BUT NOT LIKELY UNTIL TONIGHT. CANNOT RULE OUT A WEAK
AFTERNOON CU FIELD ACROSS OUR SOUTHWEST ZONES. PRESSURE GRADIENT
BEGINNING TO TIGHTEN UP FROM WEST TO EAST ACROSS OUR REGION WITH
AN EASTWARD MOVING RIDGE AXIS TO OUT EAST AND INCREASING
CYCLOGENESIS IN THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES. STRONGEST WINDS WILL BE
ACROSS OUR WESTERN ZONES...ALBEIT WAY BELOW ANY KIND OF ADVISORY
CRITERIA.

FOR THE UPDATE...HOURLY TEMPERATURES WERE SOME 2 TO 4 DEGREES
WARMER THAN FORECAST SO MADE THIS CHANGE TO THE HOURLY GRIDS.
MAX TEMPS THIS AFTERNOON ARE IN THE BALLPARK AS THE RATE OF CLIMB
WITH HOURLY TEMPERATURES SHOULD SLOW THIS AFTN. ALSO ADJUSTED
HOURLY DEWPOINT AND RH GRIDS TO MIMIC CURRENT TRENDS...OTHERWISE
NO OTHER CHANGES WERE NECESSARY.

NO UPDATE IS PLANNED AT THIS TIME.
