We saw another hot one today with several locations reaching heat
indices around 108 degrees near the coast and just inland. Am not
going to reissue a heat advisory for tomorrow at this point, want
to let the next shift assess the 00Z guidance as it appears to be
a close call for Sunday.

The scattered convection off to our northwest is likely to remain
north of the area tonight. There is a slight chance extreme
northern areas could see some precip after midnight. Current
forecast has this possibility accounted for. 33


.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 724 PM CDT Sat Aug 12 2017/

Water vapor imagery shows the plume of drier air continuing to
filter in from the west/northwest. Winds gusted for a short time
across the central TAF sites as the sea breeze pushed through the
area, clearing HOU as of 00Z. Expecting winds to remain around 10
kts through 01Z dropping to 5 to 10 kts. Decks should lower
possibly become MVFR around 09-12Z but keep things scattered out
for now as forecast soundings and short term guidance are lacking
moisture due to upper level ridging. Therefore, keep conditions
dry Sunday morning and into the afternoon and left VCSH out for
now across all TAF sites.
