.AVIATION...
Storms starting to get going this afternoon as we reach our con-
vective temperatures. We should see similar pattern for tomorrow
given the continued influx of deep moisture (via the Gulf). This
very tropical airmass over SE TX should give us limited MVFR VIS
and CIGS during the overnight/early morning hours, but we may be
seeing a bit more WAA-type SHRA just before sunrise. 41

UPDATE...
Previous forecast appears to be on track, and no major changes
were made. Currently have some showers moving across the offshore
waters. Expect showers and thunderstorms to move inland beginning
later this morning and into this afternoon with higher coverage
than we`ve seen the past several days. Convection should die off
after sunset before firing up across the offshore waters once
again after midnight. Heat indices in the low 100s this afternoon.
