.DISCUSSION...
Ongoing forecast is in good shape with just some insignificant
tweaks for the update...mainly to match grids/obs/trends and also
keep some lowish POPs along the coast and offshore. With warm
conditions and onshore winds not completely dropping off
overnight, most locations will probably see another record high
minimum temperature for Thurs. (Assuming no surprises prior to
1 am, IAH/HOU/GLS will all break or tie one for today).  47
