.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0114 AM CST Wed Jan 23 2019/

Large-scale upper troughing will dominate the central/eastern CONUS
today as upper ridging remains over the eastern Pacific. A surface
cold front will shift quickly offshore the TX Coast and into the
western Gulf of Mexico this morning.

...Portions of Deep South TX...
Behind the cold front, locally strong/gusty northerly winds of 15-20
mph will occur this morning across parts of Deep South TX as the
surface pressure gradient remains modestly enhanced. RH values
should become lowered into the 20-25% range by mid-morning as modest
diurnal heating occurs. Although some light precipitation is ongoing
across parts of south TX early this morning, fine fuels will
probably remain receptive enough owing to less than 0.10 inch of
total rainfall expected. Therefore, the ongoing elevated area has
been maintained with no changes. The northerly winds will slowly
weaken through the afternoon as the surface pressure gradient
gradually relaxes.
