314 PM CST Thu Dec 13 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible mainly west of the I-45 corridor through
the afternoon hours. A cold front moves through the region tonight with a strong low
pressure system moving through the region with cool and windy conditions. Areas south 
and west of a line from Madisonville to Katy to Galveston will likely see very
gusty winds overnight and in the morning with some areas near the Matagorda Bay region 
observing gusts of 40 to 50 mph. Humidity will drop tomorrow but cloud cover will still
keep it cool and relatively humid. Drier conditions may develop in a few places on Saturday 
as winds relax and cloud cover departs.
