AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
1149 PM CDT SAT MAY 2 2015


.AVIATION...
VFR CONTINUES ACROSS THE AREA. SOME PATCHY FOG POSSIBLE AND WILL
CONTINUE TO MENTION TEMPO MIFG FOR CXO/SGR/LBX TERMINALS. EXPECT
MORE CU TOMORROW AND LITTLE LOWER THAN TODAYS AS MOISTURE LEVELS
WILL BE SLOWLY INCREASING OVERNIGHT AND MORESO ON SUNDAY. MIGHT
EVEN SEE A LIGHT SHOWER IN THE GULF WATERS NEARSHORE TOMORROW
MORNING BUT VERY LOW COVERAGE AND NOT EVEN WORTHY OF A VCSH AT GLS
YET. A LITTLE CIRRUS COULD MAKE IT TO THE NORTHERN SITES AS WELL
BUT GIVEN THE CU NOT WORTH ADDING ANOTHER LINE TO THE TAF IN THE
AFTERNOON AS THE FLOW ALOFT BECOMES MORE NORTHWESTERLY.
