Discussion... 
please see 18z aviation discussion.

Aviation... 
lower ceilings are eroding as a result of dry middle level air getting 
mixed with the saturated lower layers. VFR conditions on tap for 
this afternoon with surface winds increasing to 15 to 20 knots 
from the south and southwest as the low level jet gets mixed down 
to the surface. 


Tonight...a pre-frontal trough will move across the area late 
tonight. MVFR/IFR ceilings will reform around 8-10z Tuesday. Chance of 
showers mostly along the coast Tuesday morning while inland 
terminals may experience widespread light rain and drizzle. 44

Previous discussion... /issued 959 am CST Monday Dec 22 2014/ 


Discussion... 
no significant changes with this update. Overcast deck continuing to 
break up this morning (on through the aftn) as strengthening winds 
just above the surface helps to break to things up. Warmer temperatures to 
also prevail today/tonight given the increased low-level moist- 
ure/clearing skies. Models still going with a pre-frontal trough/ 
wind shift Tuesday morning before the passage of the main/actual cold 
front (much colder airmass) Tuesday aftn/eve. 41 


Previous discussion... /issued 402 am CST Monday Dec 22 2014/ 


Areas of fog can be found across parts of southeast Texas early 
this morning with temperatures generally in the middle to upper 50s. 
South to southwest surface winds today will warm temperatures into 
the upper 60s to lower 70s as skies become partly cloudy. A strong 
cold front (and possible rain) is still on schedule to move 
through the area on Tuesday with falling temperatures and breezy 
conditions developing behind the boundary (wind advisories are not 
anticipated at this time). Models continue to trend a little 
colder behind this front...and inland low temperatures in the 30s 
will be possible on both Wednesday and Thursday morning. Highs on 
Wednesday will be in the 50s. Readings will warm up on Thursday 
and Friday...then cool down again over the weekend after the 
passage of another cold front (at this time it looks like inland 
lows will be in the 40s on Saturday and in the 30s on sunday). 42
