.DISCUSSION...
COLD FRONT IS SITUATED FROM ROUGHLY COLDSPRING TO BRENHAM AND
EXPECTED TO MAKE GOOD SWD PROGRESS AND OFF THE GLS COASTLINE BY
EARLY AFTN. TEMPS AT CLL ARE CURRENTLY 24 DEGREES COOLER THAN
WHERE THEY STARTED AT SUNRISE AND EXPECT SIMILAR TEMP DROPS AND
BREEZY CONDITIONS BEHIND THE BOUNDARY.

12Z SOUNDINGS AT CRP AND LATEST AIRCRAFT SOUNDINGS AT IAH CONTINUE
TO SHOW CAP IN PLACE. NOT LIKELY THIS WILL BE OVERCOME ACROSS MOST
LOCATIONS TO SEE SFC BASED TSTMS. HOWEVER...STEEP LAPSE RATES
ALOFT AND INCOMING LFQ OF JET WOULD STILL SUPPORT ELEVATED TSTMS
WITH ASSOCIATED THREAT OF HAIL (BEHIND THE FRONT AS WELL). SEEING
ACTIVITY BLOSSOM TO OUR WEST AND ANTICIPATE INCREASED COVERAGE
OVER SE TX IN THE COMING HOURS.

ONGOING FCST IS IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE. JUST MADE SOME MINOR
UPDATES TO THE 1ST PERIOD BASED ON LATEST OBS AND TRENDS DESCRIBED
ABOVE. 47
