.AVIATION...
SFC RIDGE OVER THE N GULF IS STARTING TO EDGE WEST TOWARDS THE
UPPER TX COAST. WINDS HAVE VEERED BACK TO S/SW. THINK WIND
DIRECTIONS WILL VARY FROM 170 THROUGH 210 FOR TERMINALS. WINDS MAY
BE A AROUND 10KTS WITH A FEW GUSTS. OTHERWISE WITH PW VALUES
DROPPING TO AROUND 1.5-1.7 ACROSS THE AREA...DO NOT SEE CONVECTION
DEVELOPING.

KCLL/KUTS/KCXO...ONLY ISSUES MAY BE MVFR CIGS IN THE MORNING WITH
LOW STRATUS AND MAYBE SOME FOG AT KCXO. CIGS MAY BE BETTER HANDLED
WITH TEMPO GROUP BUT WILL LEAVE PREVAILING CONDITION FOR NOW. CIGS
IMPROVE TO VFR LATE TOMORROW MORNING.

KIAH/KHOU/KSGR/KLBX/KGLS...OVERALL VFR CIGS OVERNIGHT ALTHOUGH
COULD SEE SOME VERY BRIEF INTERMITTENT MVFR CEILINGS DEVELOP
AROUND SUNRISE. THERE MAY BE SOME PATCHY FOG FOR KLBX BUT ANY CIG
SHOULD BE SHORT LIVED. LOOKS LIKE PW VALUES REMAIN AROUND 1.5
INCHES SO THINK FORECAST WILL STAY DRY.
