Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas
401 am CDT sun Oct 23 2016

ongoing forecast is in good shape and very few changes were made
this morning. Shortwave making its way in from the SW will bring
mid/upper level cloudiness to the region thru Monday. Wouldn't be
surprised if we see a few returns show up on radar later today/tonight,
but vast majority will be virga as llvls remain relatively dry.

Surface high pres situated over the eastern & cntl Gulf states
will be reinforced during the midweek time period. Deeper moisture
levels should mainly be suppressed south & southwest of the
region for most of the week. Can't totally rule out some iso
precip near the coast from time-to-time, but overall chances will
be low...especially inland.

Upper ridge in Mexico expands eastward during the second half of
the work week which may contribute to 1-2 degree bump in temps. 47


with high pressure lingering to our east, we should continue to see
mostly light (to occasionally moderate) east/southeast winds across the Upper
Texas coast these next several days. No flags are anticipated. 41


VFR conditions will continue. 41
