.DISCUSSION...Updated for latest /06Z/ aviation discussion below.
.AVIATION...The quiet continues for the next 24 hours as hot and
dry to very dry October ridge locks in place across South Texas.
About the only challenge will be post-sunrise cumulus fields
especially near the coast, mainly for Brownsville and Harlingen.
Similar to Saturday morning, this may put a brief period of MVFR
(2500 BKN) generally between 13 and 15Z. Thereafter, whatever
ceilings form lift above VFR and erode particularly during the
afternoon. Skies may well become clear in all areas by 1 to 3 PM
as impressively dry air, with relative humidity below 5 percent on
average between 700 and 500 mb has a good opportunity to mix down
especially given the anticipated hot afternoon inland.
A freshening southeast wind still remains within reason with
perhaps a few thermally-driven and sea breeze enhanced gusts over
15 knots at Harlingen/Brownsville, mainly from 3 PM to sunset
before clear skies and light winds take over soon after sunset.
Enjoy flying today!
