.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1011 AM CDT Tue Oct 17 2017/
Surface high pressure over the central Appalachians was ridging
into Texas at mid morning. Cold air advection was combining with
the surface pressure gradient between the surface ridge and a cold
front over the central Gulf of Mexico to generate breezy
northeasterly winds along and off of the immediate Upper Texas
coast. Some minor tweaks to wind. Otherwise, the current forecast
was on track.  40
