NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
505 AM CDT FRI SEP 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
SHOWERS WITH ISOLATED EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE
DURING THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE SEA
BREEZE THROUGH THE WEEKEND. PATCHY FOG WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE
DURING THE MORNINGS. AFTERNOON RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN ABOVE 35 PERCENT OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS
WITH 20 FT WINDS REMAINING UNDER 10 MPH. THIS WILL KEEP WIDESPREAD
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS LOW BUT ALREADY DRY FUELS COULD STILL RESULT
IN LOCAL FIRE ISSUES. AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT MID TO LATE NEXT
WEEK MAY INCREASE WIDESPREAD CHANCES FOR WETTING RAINS.
