.AVIATION...
SEVERAL LATE AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS WERE TRIGGERED BY THE
COLLISION OF THE SEA BREEZE WITH REMNANTS OF A FRONTAL BOUNDARY
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE HOUSTON METRO AREA. THESE
STORMS PROVIDED SOME ADDITIONAL SURFACE MOISTURE THAT MAY IMPROVE
CHANCES FOR MVFR CONDITIONS AND KHOU AND KSGR.  AT THIS TIME...I
LEFT VFR CONDITIONS IN THE KHOU TAF. HOWEVER...I WOULD NOT BE TOO
SURPRISED TO SEE PATCHY MVFR CIGS THERE BEFORE SUNRISE. MVFR
CIGS/VSBY ARE EXPECTED AT KLBX, KCXO, AND KCLL.

VFR CONDITIONS WILL RETURN TO ALL TERMINALS BY MID-MORNING.
WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE AT THE COASTAL TERMINALS IN
THE MORNING AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE AT HOUSTON METRO
TERMINALS IN THE LATE AFTERNOON. I DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY
SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION TO THE NORTH OF KIAH.

PREVAILING WINDS SHOULD BE VARIABLE AT 5 KNOTS OR LESS THROUGH THE
FORECAST PERIOD.   44
