Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX
920 PM CDT FRI JUL 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...Outflow from earlier convection stabilized the air
mass over the Brush Country while drier air moved into the coastal
plains. 00Z CRP sounding had lower precipitable water down to 1.6
inches. Removed mention of POPs from western areas for rest of the
evening. Made adjustments to hourly temperature grids due to
lower readings out west from convective outflow. Adequate moisture
and steep low level lapse rates will lead to slim threat for
shower development over the coastal waters overnight.

DISCUSSION...See Aviation section for 00Z TAFs.

AVIATION...Convective coverage is more limited today with
scattered storms mainly near and northwest of LRD. Will keep
a chance of storms in LRD until 02Z as redevelopment may occur
on left over outflow boundary. Otherwise...VFR conditions are
expected until 09Z. Expect some MVFR ceilings to occur over
the coastal plains between 09-14Z with MVFR vsbys possible over
the inland coastal plains. Slightly drier air is expected to
move into the region on Saturday with a slight chance for
showers along the coast in the morning and isolated storms
in the afternoon. No mention of storms in the TAFs with rain
chance at 20 percent or less.
