National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
424 AM CDT Thu May 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Patchy fog and low clouds may be possible due to the wet grounds
from recent rains this morning. Like yesterday, showers and
thunderstorms should develop again along the coast during the late
morning hours and then push inland through the afternoon. Pockets
of brief heavy rianfall will be possible. Light winds will
continue the next couple of days but will be mainly from the
southeast to south.
