Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
1244 PM CDT Tue Apr 25 2017

.AVIATION...
Ceilings are trending upward into VFR territory and should
continue to do so. Main issue for the remainder of the daylight
hours will be gusty south winds. Anticipate low stratus to redevelop
overnight, but winds will likely remain gusty for a good part of
the night as the low level jet increases and mixes. Dryline &
cold front move into the region Wednesday afternoon. Can`t rule
out some streamer showers in advance, but it appears a stout cap
will limit overall tstm chances at the majority of our TAF sites.
Better chances should be situated toward ne Tx. 47
