Discussion...
still have an isolated cell or two on radar, but suspect they'll
dissipate fairly quickly. Looking like a Summer pattern with
iso/sct precip developing in the Gulf prior to sunrise...then
transitioning inland with daytime heating and the seabreeze.
Latest guidance is trending more bullish with shra/tstm coverage
tomorrow so edged pops up a touch for some locations. Otherwise,
just insignificant tweaks for the update. 47

Aviation (747 pm)...
showers/thunderstorms earlier this afternoon have dissipated this
evening. Should be a quiet night with mostly VFR conditions, with
patchy fog possible for our usual sites (cxo/lbx) by sunrise. Not
too many changes from previous as the onshore flow persists and a
slightly deeper moisture from the Gulf persists across the region.
Daytime heating along with the seabreeze should help produce more
scattered storms tomorrow afternoon. Will keep with the vcsh/thunderstorms in the vicinity
wording for now. 41
