.DISCUSSION...
RATHER ACTIVE SEABREEZE THIS AFTN GIVEN THE ADDITION OF OUTFLOWS
AND SUCH FROM THE STORMS MOVING UP FROM THE LOWER TX COAST (MOST-
LY) AND FROM NORTH TX (TO A LESSER DEGREE). ATTM STILL EXPECTING
THIS ACTIVITY TO DISSIPATE THIS EVENING WITH THE LOSS OF DAYTIME
HEATING. WE SHOULD SEE YET ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS TOMORROW WITH
THE SEABREEZE/HEATING...BUT WILL BE KEEPING AN EYE ON THE CONTIN-
UED ACTIVITY OVER THE WRN GULF. AS PER SATELLITE AND RADAR LOOPS
THERE IS STILL QUITE A BIT OF MOISTURE/ENERGY IN THAT REGION AND
POSSIBLY A FEW WAVES COMING IN FROM THE NORTH AS WELL.

MODELS TRYING TO DRY THINGS OUT ACROSS SE TX THURS/FRI AS THE UP-
PER RIDGE IS PROGGED TO BRIEFLY EXTEND DOWN FROM THE NW AND PWAT
NUMBERS LOWER A BIT. WHILE NOT VERY CONFIDENT WITH THIS PROPOSED
SOLUTION WILL GOT AHEAD AND LEAN THAT WAY FOR NOW. OTHERWISE THE
RETREAT OF THE UPPER RIDGE AND ANOTHER SURGE OF GULF MOISTURE ON
SAT/SUN WILL HELP TO INCREASE POPS ONCE AGAIN. 41

.MARINE...
TODAY IS EVIDENCE THAT ANY SUMMER DAY CAN BE AN ACTIVE MARITIME
WEATHER DAY DUE TO BEING WITHIN THIS RESIDENT WARM AND HUMID AIR
MASS. THUNDERSTORM TRIGGERING FROM OUTFLOW WIND GUST FRONTS
ORIGINATING FROM A LARGE AREA OF THUNDERSTORMS OFF THE NORTHEASTERN
MEXICO COASTLINE...HAVE INITIATED TODAY`S WESTERN GULF STORMS...WIND
GUSTS OF GREATER THAN 35 KTS CAN BE EXPECTED WITHIN OR AROUND THESE
STORM DOWNDRAFTS. STORM AND SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL BLOSSOM ONCE AGAIN
IN SUBSEQUENT DAYS AS DISTURBANCES ORIGINATING FROM THE SOUTHERN
GULF/BAY OF CAMPECHE TRAVEL NORTHWARD AROUND THE WESTERN PERIPHERY
OF CENTRAL GULF-CENTERED SURFACE RIDGING. BACKGROUND WINDS WILL
REMAIN LIGHT ONSHORE DURING THE AFTERNOON...PICK UP TO AROUND 15
KNOTS OVER OPEN GULF WATERS/GULF FACING COAST OVERNIGHT. 31
