PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 350 PM CDT FRI JUN 24 2016/

DISCUSSION...A few showers remain over southeast Texas and
southwest Louisiana associated with a weak seabreeze. Capping
remains in place with high pressure holding over the region aloft
tamping down any significant convection. This will remain the case
through the weekend with rain chances remaining low. Otherwise
expecting very typical temperatures with hot days and warm nights
continuing.

Ridge breaks down going into the new work-week with the
development of east conus troffing. Feature will be sufficient to
advance a cool front/trof into the area with moisture deepening
along and ahead of boundary. Increased pops thus in place through
mid-weekend, with best rain chances at this time arriving Tuesday.

MARINE...The sub-tropical ridge will remain stretched from the
Atlantic across the Northern Gulf of Mexico through the weekend
and into early next week. This will keep a generally light onshore
flow in place.
