Merged-TPW compared to Sfc obs

The merged-TPW product compared well to the surface obs with 1) the strong gradient along the dryline 2) the lower PWAT values behind the MCS and 3) axis of greater PWAT along the immediate Gulf Coast. Actual values however were too high in the dry air (MAF/DFW) and too low in the moist air (DRT/CRP). Values compared to 12Z soundings at BRO the best.
