.AVIATION...
For the 06Z TAFs... the main aviation concerns center around
timing for development of TSRA/SHRA Tuesday morning through
evening.

Earlier TSRA/SHRA has since dissipated with a brief break
expected through 08z before additional development occurs just off
the coast along a weak land breeze. A disturbance over southwest
Louisiana Tuesday and precipitable water values remaining over 2
inches will result in another round of scattered TSRA/SHRA inland
again Tuesday. Expect activity to shift inland 15-18Z with
heating/ sea breeze development later this morning. Similar
environmental conditions to Monday are expected on Tuesday, with
stronger TSRA/SHRA capable of IFR-MVFR visibilities from heavy
rain and 20-30 knot wind gusts. VFR conditions and south to
southeast winds under 10 knots are expected to prevail outside of
convection on Tuesday. Expect inland convection to gradually
dissipate Tuesday evening with loss of heating, with another land
breeze Tuesday night resulting in SHRA near Galveston.

DISCUSSION...
Storms have dissipated, but still have a few patches of lingering
light rain. Early tomorrow morning expect convective activity to
really increase offshore, with scattered showers and storms also
near the coast. Could still see isolated showers and
thunderstorms develop overnight inland with such a moist airmass
in place. Have adjusted pops downward inland and also adjusted
temps downward to account for some rain cooled areas. 33
