.AVIATION...
THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY FROM AN EARLIER THUNDERSTORM COMPLEX OVER
EAST TEXAS HAS COLLIDED WITH THE REMNANTS OF AN OLD FRONTAL
BOUNDARY THAT IS DRAPED ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS. SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE FIRED UP OVER THE LAST TWO HOURS THAT ARE
CURRENTLY MOVING FROM NORTH TO SOUTH AROSS THE HOUSTON METRO AREA
AND SHOULD CLEAR ALL OF THE SOUTHERN TAF SITES BY 10Z.

ANOTHER ROUND OF CONVECTION WILL LIKELY MOVE INLAND FROM THE COAST
LATE TOMORROW MORNING...EVENTUALLY CLEARING THE HOUSTON TERMINALS
BY AROUND 22Z IN THE AFTERNOON. CONVECTION WILL NOT LIKELY MAKE IT
ANY FURTHER INLAND THAN KIAH.

OTHER THAN PATCHY MVFR CIGS OVERNIGHT AT THE MORE REMOTE TAF
SITES AND OCCASIONAL PERIODS OF HEAVY RAIN... VFR CONDITIONS WILL
PREVAIL. WINDS SHOULD BE VARIABLE AT LESS THAN 05 KTS...HOWEVER
WIND GUSTS OF UP TO 25KTS HAVE BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH SOME OF THE
THUNDERTORMS. 44

DISCUSSION...

PCPN THAT WAS MOVING IN FROM THE NNE DID FALL APART BEFORE MAKING
IT INTO THE CWA THIS EVENING...HOWEVER THE CROCKET AIRPORT DID RE-
PORT A 36KT GUST AS THE LINE GUSTED OUT. AND SIMILAR TO LAST NITE
WE ARE STILL SEEING ACTIVITY TRYING TO MOVE IN FROM THE EAST. NOT
VERY OPTIMISTIC THAT MUCH WILL COME FROM OF IT BUT GIVEN THE LING-
ERING BOUNDARIES FROM EARLIER TODAY (AND TREND OF LATE) WOULD NOT
BE TOO SURPRISED IF WE SAW SOME ISO/WIDELY SCT SHRA OVERNIGHT. 41
