.DISCUSSION...
06Z aviation...Band of shra and tsra continues south of CLL to
near CXO. This convection has been slowly lifting northward.
Another area of TSRA is approaching from the west and we may see
tsra closer to IAH and HOU late tonight and early tomorrow.
Heating in an unstable airmass will likely produce sct afternoon
tsra as well. So, have a lot of VCTS in tafs due to a prolonged
threat of tsra but not much confidence of the exact timing for IAH
and southward taf sites. 33
