.AVIATION...
VFR conditions are expected through late this evening. Look for another
possibility of some low cloud and patchy fog formation during the late
night through early morning hours. Anything that does develop should
scatter out fairly quickly by mid-morning. VFR for the rest of the
day on Monday with mainly S to SSW winds around 10 knots.  42

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 239 PM CDT Sun Mar 19 2017/

DISCUSSION...
High pressure will continue over SE Texas through mid week. For
tonight and early tomorrow, patchy fog should result. However,
surface winds may be a bit higher than last night which should
make any fog formation a bit more patchier. This is reflected in
the high resolution models showing lower chances for fog formation
than 24 hours ago.

The main impacts of the high pressure ridging will be dry and warm
conditions. Daytime highs will reach into the lower 80s each day
through Thursday with some mid 80s possible. By the end of the
week, the upper level ridge will exit to the east as an upper
trough moves across the Rockies into the plains. Both the GFS and
ECMWF looked similar and both bring chances for showers and
thunderstorms to the forecast area Friday into early Saturday
followed by a dry and cooler weekend.

MARINE...
Quiet conditions are expected to persist across the marine areas over
the next several days as surface high pressure over the northern Gulf
results in light to occasionally moderate onshore flow. Winds and
seas should increase late in the work work ahead of the next weak
frontal boundary that is forecast to push off the coast early
Saturday morning.
