Forecast Discussion:

Some concern that we might not see as much convective coverage today due to the extensive high cloudiness from thunderstorms last night over central Texas. So far, this has kept temps down and not allowed for much de-stabilization and 12z models have really backed off on precip for this afternoon. Therefore, I will lower rain chances a tad along with high temps and watch radar trends to determine if any additional updates will be needed this afternoon.

It still looks like a very weak front will move through the region Thursday and usher in some slightly drier air and light northerly winds Friday and Saturday. This could allow for the development of higher concentrations of ozone production across the region.
