.AVIATION...
Cluster of strong cells nw of CLL will make its way into the
terminal within the next few hours. Large hail and heavy
downpours will be the primary threat assuming it maintains its
intensity. Added tstms to that TAF and also mentioned possibility
in the UTS area. Otherwise...MVFR cigs in the process of
overspreading the area and that`ll persist into the mid morning
hours Mon until lifting. Will need to keep a close eye if/where
this cluster of storms leaves a boundary once it dissipates.
Possibility exists it could become a focus for sct storms on Mon
afternoon w/ heating, and esp if a seabreeze catches up to it. Threw
in some VCSHs in the IAH, CXO, UTS for this possibility. Otherwise,
rinse/repeat with lower cigs filling back in Mon night. 47
