.SHORT TERM...
Best lift and support for any sh/ts will remain over Tx through
about mid week. As the tropical system moves into the east coast
over the weekend...it looks to stall for a few days. A deep late
season upper trough begins to develop and dig southward by the
start of the work week. This will drive the stationary troughing
over Tx eastward and help bring rain chances up for our area as
well starting as early as Thursday. This is still a ways out and
rain chances will have to be continually evaluated over the coming
days.

.LONG TERM...
If things work out like advertised...the weekend after
this...will be quite nice cool and dry.

&&

.AVIATION...

VFR conditions expected throughout the forecast period. While broken
to overcast skies are likely at times, cloud decks will be generally
above 5K feet. Rain chances are less than 10 percent for the morning
and afternoon hours.

&&

.MARINE...

High pressure will continue to dominate the flow over the coastal
waters through the rest of the week with winds generally out of the
southeast at 10 to 15 knots through the weekend. Seas will be on the
order of two to three feet. With the center of the high developing
over the coastal waters Monday and Tuesday winds will decrease
and become light and variable with seas of 1 to 2 feet.
