Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Brownsville TX
1244 AM CDT Sun Apr 15 2018

.DISCUSSION...Updated for latest aviation and marine discussion
below.

&&

.AVIATION...It doesn`t get any better for flying around here.
Clear skies and light winds as high pressure settles in. Dewpoints
starting off low enough that even shallow fog looks difficult to
come by by daybreak Sunday. By mid afternoon, some thermals are
likely as dry adiabiatic mixing dominates. This will likely
enhance the sea breeze and expect a few gusts toward 20 knots at
all sites, beginning at 3 PM east and reaching McAllen by 4 or 5
PM. Winds will quickly settle down after sunset but unlike this
evening will have some flow from the southeast. Enjoy!

&&

.MARINE...Let the Small Craft Advisory drop as winds had fallen
below 20 knots even across the offshore waters, and are nearly
calm over Laguna Madre. Seas offshore may still be hovering near 7
feet in the southern offshore leg but were also trending down.
Continued to hold Caution wording in the offshore waters for a few
more hours. A decent boating/fishing morning especially for Laguna
Madre, and Monday morning should be favorable as well before the
spring wind machine that has been a frequent visitor this year
cranks up.

&&

.BRO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
TX...None.
GM...None.
