.AVIATION...
00Z TAF UPDATE...WATER VAPOR LOOKS TO BE SHOWING A WEAK JET STREAK
MOVING OVER THE AREA FROM THE RIO GRANDE AND HILL COUNTRY. RADAR
SHOWS WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWER ACTIVITY ADVANCING INTO SE TEXAS
FROM THE WEST. OVERALL WE DO NOT EXPECT ANY AVIATION IMPACTS FROM
THE SHOWERS BUT WILL AT LEAST MENTION VCSH IN TAFS. CIGS SHOULD
REMAIN VFR WITH CEILINGS 5000 TO 12000 FEET AND SCATTERED LOW
CLOUDS. THINK CLOUD COVER WILL HOLD OVER NIGHT AND THINK POTENTIAL
FOR FOG WILL BE LOW. SHOULD A FEW MORE RURAL AREAS HAVE CALM
WINDS...MAY GET SOME PATCH RESTRICTED VISIBILITY BUT DO NOT EXPECT
ANY WIDESPREAD FOG THAT WILL IMPACT HOUSTON TERMINALS. WINDS
SHOULD REMAIN CLOSE TO 10 KNOTS FROM THE NORTH WITH A DECREASE
AFTER MIDNIGHT AND THEN PICKING BACK UP TOMORROW.
