Aviation...

Cigs continue to bounce between MVFR/VFR today from scattered
shras/tsras in the area. Will continue mention of rain through at
least 00z which by then activity is expected to diminish. Coastal
trough still along the southern Texas coast will contribute to
continued rain chances late tonight, especially along the coast.
Most activity should remain offshore, but may begin to move inland
toward crp as early as 12z, with activity developing farther
inland toward ali-vct around 15z and Onward. With drier air moving
in on Tuesday, lrd may stay dry from convection after today.
Winds will vary with nearby trough. Winds along the coast (from
crp-vct) have become more east-southeast while farther inland a more NE
flow is expected. Should see a return out of the NE for all sites
during the overnight.

Discussion...

Cooled temperatures down especially along the coast and toward the
Victoria Crossroads. Coastal trough that remains rather stationary
along the southern Texas coast should keep convergence and bulk of
rain activity along the coast and offshore. Sufficient moisture,
however, remains across the rest of the County Warning Area and scattered showers
and thunderstorms are still expected farther inland with
additional heating. Some stabilization is occurring per the
latest laps along the coast, especially from Port Aransas
northward to Port O Connor, which has led to the weakening trend
the past couple of hours, but rain chances will continue to exist
due to the proximity of the convergence zone.
