Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
1151 PM CDT Sat Aug 27 2016

.AVIATION...
No sig changes to ongoing tafs. Trough axis in process of moving
into SE Tx from east. Areas of shra & Sct tsra may impact parts of
the metro and esp coastal areas overnight and into the morning
hours. Precip could develop further inland during the day Sunday
into the UTS/CLL areas but should be dependent on early cloud
cover, etc. Suspect some of the guidance...esp qpf and coverage in
those areas well inland...might be a bit overdone. 20-30kt wind
gusts and MVFR cigs can be expected in/near any stronger cells.
Otherwise outside of convection...expect VFR conditions to
prevail. 47

.PREV DISCUSSION...
Flash Flood Watch has been cancelled as the east- southeastern
forecast area is not experiencing those rainfall rates needed in
creating a widespread flash flood threat. Bear in mind that the
flood threat still exists going into the Sunday daytime hours.
Future watches may be hoisted by incoming shifts if storms begin
to cluster, slow down over those counties that cannot handle more
than 2-3 inch/hr rates. Thus, still maintaining a Watch and Wait
level of awareness. 31
