SFC ANALYSIS TODAY HAS A WEAK TROUGH THROUGH THE PLAINS INTO W TX
WITH HIGH PRESSURE STRETCHING FROM THE ROCKIES THROUGH THE BIG
BEND AND INTO S TX. LIGHT W WINDS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN TODAY WITH
WEAK IF ANY COLD ADVECTION. BASED ON LAMP/RAP/HRRR GUIDANCE FOR
TEMPS...RAISED MAX TEMPS A FEW DEGREES MAINLY WEST OF I-45 BUT
EVEN THINK HOUSTON AREA COULD REACH UPPER 60S. OTHERWISE THE REST
OF THE FORECAST LOOKS ON TRACK. UPDATED FORECAST SHOULD HAVE BEEN
ISSUED.

ALL EYES ARE NOW ON THE EAST COAST AS UPPER LOW IS ABOUT TO EMERGE
OVER THE ATLANTIC EAST OF THE CAROLINAS AND THEN TRACK N TOWARDS
