.PREVIOUS DISCUSSION... /Issued 653 PM CDT Fri May 26 2017/

DISCUSSION...Downward trend in heat index values continue and
will be below advisory criteria for rest of this evening. Will
allow Heat Advisory to expire. See Aviation section for 00Z TAFs.

AVIATION...Satellite imagery shows a band of MVFR ceilings
persisting from north of Corpus Christi Bay to the Mid-Coast
region. Expect these lower ceilings will continue for this area
and impact VCT through the early evening hours. Elsewhere, VFR
conditions are expected early this evening. Stratus deck expected
to affect all of the coastal plains by 03Z with MVFR conditions.
Depth of moisture layer near the surface is expected to decrease
through the night as drier air at the 2-3 kft layer. Ceilings
could lower to near IFR levels along with MVFR vsbys with fog
over the Victoria Crossroads but kept prevailing ceilings at MVFR
through the night for coastal sites. MVFR ceilings could reach LRD
between 11-15Z. With influx of drier air at low levels, expect
improvement to VFR will be faster than today. Kept TEMPO group for
MVFR ceilings at ALI/CRP from 14-16Z and VCT from 15-17Z Saturday.
South winds will become gusty by mid morning over the coastal
plains and increase further to the southeast in the afternoon.
