.DISCUSSION...
INCREASED POPS TODAY WITH A SURGE OF HIGHER MOISTURE CONTINUING TO
MOVE IN FROM THE GULF. A BIT MORE ACTIVITY OVER THE COASTAL WATERS
THIS MORNING (AS OPPOSED TO YESTERDAY) AND SHOULD CONTINUE TO MOVE
INTO THE COASTAL COUNTIES THROUGH MID MORNING OR SO. ACTIVITY EXP-
ECTED TO PICK UP ACROSS INLAND AREAS THIS AFTN AS DAYTIME HEATING/
SEABREEZE COMES INTO PLAY.

AS THIS SURGE OF HIGHER PWS MIX OUT BY FRI...AND THROUGH THE WEEK-
END WE SHOULD SEE MORE ISO AFTN PCPN (IF ANY) AS UPPER LEVEL RIDG-
ING BECOMES MORE PROMINENT. THE PROGGED STRONGER SUBSIDENT PATTERN
COULD PRODUCE OUR WARMEST DAYTIME TEMPS OF THE SUMMER THIS WEEKEND
(AND PERHAPS INTO THE START OF NEXT WEEK). OUR NEXT BEST RAIN CHCS
EXPECTED LATE NEXT TUES/WEDS/THURS AS A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY SAGS
INTO THE REGION FROM THE NORTH. 41

.MARINE...
HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST WILL MAINTAIN A LIGHT ONSHORE FLOW OF 5-
12KTS. SLIGHT INCREASES POSSIBLE NOCTURNALLY TONIGHT AND AGAIN LATE
THIS WEEKEND. SCATTERED SHOWERS SHOWING UP ON RADAR WELL OFFSHORE
AND AROUND THE LOWER COAST. ONLY A FEW OF THE HIGH RES MODELS SHOW
THIS FEATURE AS FAR NORTH AS IT IS ALREADY AND GIVEN THIS EXPECT TO
SEE SOME OF THESE SHOWERS MOVE INTO THE COASTAL WATERS THIS MORNING.
WEAK SUBSIDENCE TODAY AND MAY LEAD TO DIMINISHING COVERAGE BY NOON.

.AVIATION...
PW OVER THE AREA WAS STILL BELOW NORMAL BUT SHOULD BE
INCREASING TODAY AND WITH SHOWERS MOVING UP THE COAST THE LOWER
COAST EXPECT THAT VCSH WILL BE NEEDED AT GLS AND LBX. OTHERWISE
STILL THINK COVERAGE WILL BE GREATER THAN YESTERDAY WITH THE
AVAILABLE MOISTURE BUT WILL STILL HAVE TO OVERCOME SUBSIDENCE. WILL
LIKELY ADD A VCSH PERIOD TO IAH TERMINALS SOUTHWARD STARTING EARLY
NEAR THE COAST AND EXPANDING INLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON.
