00/06Z Taf issuance.

Radar showing most convection across the region has either
dissipated or moved out of the region. Remnant high level cirrus
from the afternoon convection is slowly dissipating as well.
Expect light and variable to calm wind overnight into Thursday
morning. VFR expected through the period.


PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 354 PM CDT Wed Jun 26 2019/

DISCUSSION...Convection confined this afternoon to primarily
southeast Texas. Activity initiated where mid-level cloudiness
eroded through the morning allowing for slightly higher
temperatures. Additionally, zone of low level convergence/sea
breeze came into play. Otherwise, temperatures across the area
trending toward seasonal norms which will remain the case
throughout the forecast.

Limited shower and thunderstorm activity will remain the case for
Thursday as low levels remain relatively limited of moisture. At
this time carrying no more than minimal pops for afternoon
convection over interior southeast Texas and central Louisiana.
Moisture profiles look somewhat better for Friday and accordingly
carrying higher pops. Ramp up rain chances further for the
weekend with the approach and passage of an mid level inverted
trof. Taper off pops once again Monday, then increase for Tuesday
and Wednesday as deep tropical moisture is progged to advance into
the region.

MARINE...A mainly light onshore flow will persist over the coastal
waters through the forecast period as high pressure lingers over
the northern Gulf of Mexico. Rain chances will increase again by
this weekend as an upper level disturbance approaches the region.
