.DISCUSSION...
NOT REALLY MUCH CHANGE TO ONGOING FCST. GOES SOUNDER PW IMAGERY
SHOWS AXIS OF SLIGHTLY DEEPER MOISTURE OVER E TX SLOWLY DRIFTING
WWD. WILL MAINTAIN THE MENTION OF LOWISH POPS ALONG & E OF THE
I-45 CORRIDOR TODAY AS GUIDANCE STILL DEPICTS THE POSSIBILITY OF
SOME ISO ACTIVITY ESP W/ HEATING. BUT LIKE IN PREVIOUS DAYS - MOST
FOLKS WILL REMAIN DRY.

CENTER OF DOMINANT UPPER RIDGE WILL MEANDER ABOUT THE SRN PLAINS
INTO MIDWEEK BEFORE GRADUALLY MIGRATING INTO THE WRN STATES LATE
IN THE WEEK. HEIGHTS ACTUALLY BUILD A TOUCH ACROSS SE TX DURING
MIDWEEK PERIOD SO WOULNDN`T DOUBT IF WE SEE A FEW 100 DEGREE
READINGS POP UP ESP AS GROUND FURTHER DRIES. RAIN CHANCES...
ALTHOUGH NOT ZERO...PROBABLY AREN`T WORTH MENTIONING FOR MOST
PLACES TUE-WED.

BETTER CHANCES OF ISO/SCT PRECIP PROBABLY OCCUR IN THE THUR-SAT
TIME PERIOD AS RIDGE REPOSITIONS ITSELF TO THE WEST...DEEPER
MOISTURE MOVES IN FROM THE EAST & WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY SAGS INTO
OR NEAR SE TX. 47

&&

.MARINE...
LIGHT/MODERATE ONSHORE WINDS WILL PERSIST THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WITH
SLIGHTLY INCREASED SPEEDS DURING THE OVERNIGHT HRS. THE APPROACH AND
SUBSEQUENT STALLING OF A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY OVER SE TX LATE WEDS/
EARLY THURS WILL HELP TO PRODUCE A MORE W/SWLY FLOW OVER THE COASTAL
WATERS. THE PROXIMITY OF THIS BOUNDARY WILL ALSO PROVIDE A FOCUS FOR
THE DEVELOPMENT OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS DURING THIS TIME FRAME.
THIS UNSETTLED WX PATTERN IS FCST TO PERSIST FROM THU INTO THE WEEK-
END. 41

&&

.AVIATION...
ISO POPS POSSIBLE THIS AFTN GIVEN THE LINGERING SLIGHT UPTICK OF LOW
LEVEL MOISTURE ACROSS THE AREA. HOWEVER NOT GOING TO ADD ANY MENTION
OF POPS TO THE 12Z TAF PACKAGE GIVEN THE LACK OF A FOCUS FOR PCPN DE-
VELOPMENT. OTHERWISE WILL BE KEEPING WITH THE GENERAL VFR TRENDS FOR
THE DAYTIME HRS...WITH BRIEF MVFR CIGS/VIS DURING THE OVERNIGHT/VERY
EARLY MORNING HRS AROUND SUNRISE. 41
