CXO/HOU ALREADY REPORTING CLOUDS BELOW 1000FT AND WILL HAVE TO

FASTER THAN FORECAST. MESOSCALE MODELS IN LOOSE AGREEMENT WITH
CONVECTION BEGINNING EARLIER TOMORROW NORTH OF THE METRO TERMINALS
AND EXPANDING SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. AM FAIRLY
CONFIDENT IN THIS EVOLUTION BUT EXACT TIMING OF IMPACTS REMAINS A
LOW CONFIDENCE AFFAIR. EXPECT SCATTERED SHRA/TSRA THROUGH THE
