Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX

.AVIATION...
Some lower clouds near the coast are showing signs of trying to
work their may back inland. Otherwise, expect VFR conditions
tonight and for most of the day tomorrow with mainly just some
cirrus. Winds are expected to be mainly NE at 10 to 20 knots and
occasionally gusty (especially at the coast). Late in the afternoon
near the coast and especially in the evening and overnight hours 
inland, expect to see a BKN/OVC lower cloud deck with possible 
rain development. Best chance of seeing deteriorating flying conditions
(lower ceilings/rain/fog) is still expected beginning after midnight
tomorrow night and especially on into the day on Tuesday. 42

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 816 PM CST Sun Feb 17 2019/ 

UPDATE...

Per satellite, the clearing line has made it through all of
Southeast Texas except for Galveston, Bolivar Peninsula, and a
small portion of southeastern Chambers County. Though radar
suggests that there may be the last little bit of drizzle hanging
out there as well, it's close enough to that clearing threshold
that I went ahead and pulled PoPs from the land for the rest of
tonight.

Otherwise, look for tonight to be a bit breezy near the coast -
though the barrier islands are too close to the wind advisory 
threshold for comfort, think it will hang below tonight.
Temperatures look to be running just a shade below forecast, so
retrended temps to better match the obs and go just a little bit
cooler on tonight's low, mainly up north.
