.DISCUSSION...
06Z TAF DISCUSSION IN AVIATION SECTION.

&&

.AVIATION...
RADAR SHOWS LIGHT RAIN MOVING OUT OF THE AREA. SUSPECT CONDITIONS
WILL DRY OUT 07-08Z TONIGHT. CIGS WILL BE A CHALLENGE AS RAIN
MOVES OUT AND CEILINGS BEGIN TO LIFT BUT COULD VERY WELL LOWER
SINCE THERE IS STILL QUITE A BIT OF LOW LEVEL MOISTURE. WARM FRONT
HAS PUSHED A BIT INLAND FROM LATEST SFC ANALYSIS FROM MAINLY C TX
BACK TOWARDS GLS. NORTH OF THE BOUNDARY LOW CIGS EXIST...WHILE
SOUTH OF THE BOUNDARY CEILINGS MAY LIFT AND SCT OUT TO VFR.
QUESTION WILL BE IF FOG FILLS IN WHERE CEILINGS LIFT. ESE WINDS
MAY BE TOO MUCH FOR FOG TO DEVELOP. SHOULD HAVE A LULL IN PRECIP
UNTIL COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH. FRONT HAS REACHED THE TX
PANHANDLE AND SHOULD PUSH THROUGH KCLL AROUND 21Z AND HOUSTON
TERMINALS AROUND 23-00Z MON. THEN OFF THE COAST AROUND 00-03Z MON.
WINDS WILL BE GUSTY BEHIND THE FRONT AND CIGS SHOULD IMPROVE.

THE WARM FRONT WAS MOVING SLOWLY UP THE COAST AND THROUGH THE
SOUTHWESTERN SET OF COUNTIES IN THE FORECAST AREA. THE MID AND
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE HAS MOVED OFF TO THE EAST AND AREAS OF LIGHT
RAIN HAS DEVELOPED OVER MOST OF SE TEXAS AT 9 PM. THE LATEST
HIGH RESOLUTION MODELS HAVE BACKED OFF A BIT ON RAINFALL COVERAGE.
BECAUSE OF THIS...UPDATED THE POPS AND WEATHER ACROSS THE AREA FOR
THE REMAINDER OF TONIGHT.
