.AVIATION...
Showers and thunderstorms have diminished across SE TX this
evening, with winds currently out of the S/SW. VFR conditions
should prevail through the period for most TAF sites, besides the
northern TAF sites who could see some mist and lower MVFR decks
beginning at 10Z due overnight, due to light winds and clear
skies. With upper level ridging overhead, the chance for precip
for tomorrow afternoon will be dependent upon the seabreeze and
daytime heating. Currently have VCSH forecasted for the afternoon
at IAH and HOU, where an isolated shower or thunderstorm cannot be
ruled out.

DISCUSSION...

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue moving inland along
the sea breeze this afternoon. Anticipate this convection to wane
this evening with the loss of daytime heating. Heat index values
remain high this afternoon as well, and a heat advisory remains in
effect into early this evening. Similarly warm temperatures and
high dewpoints are expected over the weekend, and additional heat
advisories may be needed for high heat index values over the
weekend.

Upper level high pressure will predominate across the region
through the weekend and into the upcoming week. A weak upper level
disturbance moving down the eastern periphery may clip the
region, bringing more isolated to scattered convection, mainly
across the eastern zones tomorrow afternoon. The upper level ridge
will remain across the south central CONUS throughout the period,
though SE Texas will generally stay more under the eastern
periphery through the majority of the period. A few additional
weak disturbances rounding across the region, along with general
daytime sea breeze activity will bring slight chances for showers
and storms throughout the upcoming week. However, most locations
will remain dry and hot throughout the period.
