.AVIATION...
A MOISTURE ONSHORE FLOW WILL BE ENHANCED BY AN UPPER LOW OVER THE
CENTRAL PART OF THE STATE. SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE
ALREADY FORMED AS OF 17Z AND EXPECT THAT THE COVERAGE MAY BECOME
MORE WIDESPREAD THIS AFTERNOON. EXPECT THE ACTIVITY TO DIMINISH
AROUND SUNSET.

WITH MORE LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE IN PLACE...AGREE WITH THE MODELS THAT
SOME OF THE SITES OUTSIDE OF THE METRO AREAS WILL PROBABLY
EXPERIENCE MVFR CONDITIONS TONIGHT.

A WEAK UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE INTO SE TX FROM THE GULF
ON WEDNESDAY. THIS WILL PROBABLY LEAD TO EARLIER DEVELOPMENT OF
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
