.AVIATION...00Z TAFS...
Radar showing a few lingering storms north of KUTS with -RA/RA
dissipating north of KIAH. -RA continues to dissipate over the
Houston terminals southward. Overnight expect CIGS to become VFR
and depending on clearing, patchy fog may be possible. This could
include KIAH/KSGR/KHOU but right now only mention for
KCLL/KCXO/KUTS. KLBX may also have patchy fog but KGLS remain
clear.

After 12Z CIGS may become challenging as a frontal boundary makes
progress southward. KCLL/KUTS/KCXO may all experience ceilings
that lower behind the front but low confidence as to whether
ceilings reach MVFR or even IFR. This will also be challenging for
Houston terminals later in the afternoon.

After 18Z convection may become more of an issue with day time
heating and unstable airmass. Like GFS and Tx Tech WRF for
developing convection along the boundary early afternoon near
Houston and pushing south later in the afternoon. Decided to
include VCTS as activity may be scattered enough in coverage to
mention with this TAF update.
