.DISCUSSION...A frontal boundary has drifted into East Texas,
Central Louisiana, and east to around Atlanta, GA this afternoon.
Ahead of the boundary, a very moist and unstable air mass remains
in place. PWAT values continue to run upward of 2". With the
boundary and rich air mass in place scattered to numerous storms
are ongoing. The storms are also capable of being very efficient
rain producers which can lead to localized flooding especially in
urban areas.

Much of the same is expected for Sunday as the set-up remains in
place, however the front will gradually sink into the gulf during
Monday which will allow for a drier air mass to filter in. By
the middle of the week gulf moisture will return north with
scattered storms possible.


&&

.MARINE...A generally light onshore flow is expected into Sunday,
however a frontal boundary will drift to the coast later Sunday
into Monday turning the flow more easterly. With the front in the
area scattered to numerous showers and storms can be expected.
Locally higher winds and waves will occur in and near storms. A
ridge will shift east of the area during early to mid week turning
the flow back onshore.
