.DISCUSSION...

The 12Z BRO sounding indicated slightly higher boundary layer
moisture with very subtle "cooling" in the 800-850 mb layer. KBRO
radar did show a few isolated showers already pushing into the
extreme southern waters and even the Laguna Madre. The HRRR/ECMWF
did indicate a few of these showers may impact mainly Cameron
county today. Will add 10% PoPs as a result. Otherwise, most of
the area will remain dry today. Will go with persistence for the
high temperature forecast for today. Seabreeze circulation will be
slightly stronger today but still remain generally 15 kt or less.

Marine conditions remain about as tranquil as you can get.
Offshore buoys were averaging around 1.5 ft seas. Continuing weak
gradient today will maintain these relatively flat seas.
