.AVIATION...
Ongoing precip should mostly taper off in the next couple hours
with the loss of heating. In the short term, obs near Galveston
Bay indicate some 20-30kt winds mixing down in/near shra moving
thru the area down there. VFR conditions should persist going into
the overnight hours. Breaks in the cirrus, wet ground & light
upslope wind may allow for some low cigs to redevelop similar to
last night...esp north of the metro area. Continued advertising
MVFR cigs/vis but will be keeping an eye on trends as this may
need to be tweaked downward to IFR for UTS/CXO/CLL.
Otherwise...look for precip redevelopment near the coast/offshore
around 8z which should migrate toward HWY 59/I-10 by late morning.
Once convective temps in the mid/upper 80s are established even further
inland we should see some sct shra/tstms develop there in the aftn
hours. 20-30kt gusts and brief MVFR cigs in the stronger
cells...otherwise VFR from mid-late morning onward. 47
