.AVIATION...
Looking for possible SHRA/TSRA development this afternoon with peak
daytime heating, but not anticipating significant coverage so will
not include in the TAFs at this time. VFR until possibility late
tonight through early tomorrow morning when MVFR/IFR ceilings and/or
visibilities could develop. For winds, look for current VRB04KTish
to become more out of the ESE and SE this afternoon, then back to
light and variable overnight.  42

UPDATE...
Hot and humid will remain the primary weather issues today. Conditions
are already quite sticky across Southeast TX this morning, reminding
us that summer still has a strong hold on the region. Dew points
near 80f at 9am along the coast has boosted heat indicies to
around 100f already. Will come close to heat advisory criteria
this afternoon in spots as max HI reach well into the 103-108f
range area-wide. Otherwise, a few afternoon showers and tstms are
still expected as afternoon heating takes root. A slightly better
chance will be continued for the far nrn counties as surface
outflow boundary from ArkLaTex MCS stalls across that area.
