not a whole lot changed from the previous forecast. Still
expecting areas of fog, some probably dense, to develop across southeast
Texas tonight. A dense fog advisory will probably be required for
parts of the area later tonight. Kept pops at 20 for most of the
area through tomorrow morning as some models are hinting at the
development of some showers ahead of the approaching cold front.
Not much accumulation, if any, is expected with these showers. 11
