.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 925 AM CST SAT FEB 13 2016/

UPDATE...
FIRST VISIBILITY HAS IMPROVED SOUTH OF A FRONTAL BOUNDARY SO LET
DENSE FOG ADVISORY EXPIRE.

BASED ON 15Z SFC OBS...FRONTAL BOUNDARY LOCATED FROM LA GRANGE TO
SUGAR LAND TO GALVESTON. LATEST 14Z HRRR HAS THIS BOUNDARY FAIRLY
WELL RESOLVED AND BEGINS TO PUSH THE BOUNDARY BACK NORTH LATER
THIS AFTERNOON AND TURNS WINDS TO SE. THERE MAY BE ENOUGH CLOUD
COVER AND COOLER AIR TO KEEP MAX TEMPS IN THE 60S BUT MAY STILL
FEEL HUMID WITH DEWPOINTS IN THE 50S SOUTH OF THE BOUNDARY. MAIN
UPDATES TO THE FORECAST WERE TO ENSURE CONSISTENCY WITH ONGOING
TRENDS AND LATEST SHORT RANGE GUIDANCE. OVERALL NOT A LOT OF
CHANGE FROM THE PREVIOUS UPDATE.
