Update
Short wave moving across the region has kicked off an area of
convection across southeast texas this morning. Activity will
slowly move eastward into parts of west central and southwest
louisiana into the afternoon hours. Still tough to say if activity
can make it all the way across the forecast area in acadiana as
mid level ridge is moving eastward into that portion of the
forecast area. Some locally heavy rainfall, frequent cloud to
ground lightning and brief gusty winds will be the main hazards
with the storms. Just made some minor adjustments based latest
radar trends.

for 12z TAF issuance.

Aviation...

interesting forecast today with various possibilities in play.

Currently, regional 88ds show quite a bit of convection developing
along the middle upper tx coastline which is drifting newd toward
kbpt... Expect some of this activity to move into that area over
the initial couple of hours before diminishing. Beyond that, just
spotty showers storms are expected through the morning hours,
mainly over sern tx WRN la. As we slide into the afternoon with
the approach of the next disturbance aloft, convection may become
a little more widespread per various high guidance as we approach
max heating. Some of the guidance is suggesting one more fleeting
round of showers storms this evening... Only carrying vc at this
time to allow later issuances a chance to better refine this
threat. OtherwiseVFR conditions with relatively light winds are
expected through the period.

short term... Today through Wednesday...

considerable high clouds from MCS over south texas western gulf is
continuing to spread high clouds across the area this morning. Water
vapor shows a weak upper disturbance slowly lifting out of south
texas. Also hrrr is showing increasing convection ahead of the
disturbance near the texas coast today. Thunderstorms should begin
to develop across southeast texas and spread into central
louisiana later today. Will have highest pops over these areas.

Thunderstorm activity should diminish this evening. Surface and
upper level high pressure over the eastern gulf will shift
westward on Wednesday. Cap is forecasted to increase and this
should limit diurnal convection. Will have pops 20 percent or
less.

Cloud cover will likely keep many areas from reaching 90 or higher
today. More Sun on Wednesday should push inland temperatures into
the lower 90s. Lower rhs as compared to last week should maintain
heat in the 100-102 range indices for Wednesday... Especially along
i10 corridor.

Long term... Wednesday night through Monday
upper anticyclone will shift west with upper troughing developing
over the area late in the week. This trough will shift westward
to texas by early next week. Will be increasing diurnal pops to
the 30 to 40 percent range Friday through Monday. Temperatures
will remain near normal with highs mainly in the lower 90s... Lows
in the lower to mid 70s. Heat indices will likely stay below 105
through the period.

Marine...

models are trending toward a weakening pressure gradient
over the western gulf beginning today. A benign surface wind
pattern is forecasted. Weak onshore low will develop by early next
week.
