    The initial cold front has entered the area - and though a bit
    slower than expected - should reach the coast by 13Z or so. CLL
    reported light showers after the wind shift and do bring that
    potential to all the downstream sites. Short term guidance does
    indicate some potential for thunder towards the coast as we warm
    up some, but at this time think that it will be quick enough to
    restrict everything to showers. If the front does slow any more,
    coastal sites may need to have some thunder introduced.

    an end, and we should rise rapidly into VFR conditions with breezy
    northwesterly winds. Though the gusts should drop off overnight,
    think sustained wind speeds will only decrease modestly.
