DISCUSSION...
AS THE INITIAL LINE OF STORMS MOVES NORTH OUT OF THE CWA...ANOTHER
LINE IS SETTING UP OVER THE SWRN COUNTIES THIS AFTN. AIRMASS MIGHT
BE A BIT WORKED OVER BUT WILL GIVE THESE STORMS THE BENEFIT OF THE
DOUBT AND KEEP SCT/ISO POPS IN THE GRIDS UNTIL LATER THIS EVENING.
DESPITE CONTINUED PROGS OF DRIER WX TOMORROW/FRI...REMAINING SOME-
WHAT SKEPTICAL GIVEN THE TRENDS OF LATE. WHILE NOT COMPLETELY GONE
THERE DOES APPEAR TO BE MOISTURE/ENERGY LINGERING ACROSS THE WEST-
ERN GULF (PER AFTN SATELLITE/RADAR LOOPS). WILL BE KEEPING LOW POP
NUMBERS IN/NEAR THE COASTAL AREAS FOR TOMORROW AS A PRECAUTION. WE
COULD VERY WELL BE SLIGHTLY DRIER ON FRI AS THAT WEAKNESS AREA BE-
GINS TO GET FILLED IN/WASHES OUT. NO CHANGES WITH THE FCST FOR THE
HOLIDAY WEEKEND (EVEN AS MODELS SEEM TO FLIP FLOP ON POPS) KEEPING
THE MOSTLY DIURNAL CHC POPS IN FOR SAT/SUN. NEXT WEEK LOOKING MUCH
DRIER A FLAT UPPER RIDGE SETTLES OVER THE REGION. 41

MARINE...
HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE NORTHEASTERN GULF WILL MAINTAIN
LIGHT...TO OCCASIONALLY MODERATE...SOUTHWEST TO SOUTH PREVAILING
WINDS THROUGH THE PERIOD. SEAS WILL GENERALLY RANGE FROM BETWEEN 3
TO 4 FEET NEARSHORE...4 TO 5 FEET OFFSHORE THROUGH THE HOLIDAY
WEEKEND. LOCAL BAYS WILL EXPERIENCE A SLIGHT CHOP. A SLIGHT CHANCE
FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LATE WEEK INTO THE WEEKEND. MARINERS
NEED TO BE AWARE OF THESE STORM PROBABILITIES AND BE PREPARED TO
QUICKLY SEEK SAFE HARBOR IN THE EVENT OF APPROACHING AND PASSING
THUNDERSTORMS. WINDS AND SEAS CAN QUICKLY TURN VIOLENT IN AND
AROUND ANY VICINITY THUNDERSTORM. 31
