Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 7:24 am CDT on July 2, 2015


        ... record rainfall across much of southeast Texas
              during the first six months of 2015...

The first six months of 2015 have been very wet. The year started out
near normal and February was actually very dry with most locations in
southeast Texas receiving an inch of rain or less. Rain returned in
March and the rainfall totals were above normal but hardly excessive.
But the rain in March was just a precursor to what was to come in may
and June. Heavy to excessive rain pummeled large portions of southeast
Texas beginning on may 11th and 12th with bouts of heavy rain through
the end of may and again through much of June. On may 11th and 12th...
parts of Harris... Brazoria and Galveston received an unexpected blast
of heavy rain with 10 to 12 inches falling in Webster... Friendswood and
Clear Lake area with 8 to 10 inches of rain between Lake Jackson and
Danbury. Another heavy rain event occurred across Harris and Fort Bend counties
on Memorial Day (may 25th) with 10 to 12 inches of rain affecting
Meyerland... Houston Westbury and mission Bend. Tropical Storm Bill
(june 13th-17th) brought additional heavy rain to parts of Jackson...
Wharton... Colorado... Matagorda and Austin counties with 10 to 14 inches
of rain reported near Ganado and El Campo. Getting ten inches of rain
in southeast Texas is unusual but not uncommon but getting three such
episodes in a 30 day period is very unusual.

The following communities (co-op sites) have had their wettest start
to a year:

Baytown... Brenham... Caldwell... Crockett... Huntsville... NWS hgx...
Sugar Land and Washington State Park.

A quick note about Baytown... this location has had the most rain out
of all our co-op sites with over 64 inches of rain through June 30th.
This location is 35 inches above normal for the year. The departure
for the year (35.46) is greater than what the normal rainfall (28.61)
for the first six months of the year is supposed to be. Baytown has
measured rainfall greater than 10 inches for four consecutive months.

The following communities have had their second wettest start to a
year:

Bellville... Edna and Liberty.

The following communities have already received more rain in the first
six months of the year than they typically receive in an entire year
(1981-2010 30 year normals):

Site 2015 rain 1981-2010 current

Baytown 64.07 59.92 +4.15
Brenham 48.70 45.14 +3.56
Caldwell 44.20 39.50 +4.70
wash State Park 45.92 41.68 +4.24

Below is a table with additional rainfall information that will
include year to date rainfall totals for southeast Texas
observation sites... where 2015 rainfall ranks historically and the
departure from normal through June 30th. The 30 year annual
average rainfall will also be listed to provide a frame of
reference to understand how truly wet the first half of 2015 has
been. The soggy details are listed below:

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
348 am CDT Thursday Jul 2 2015 


Discussion... 
a relatively quiet start to Thursday is underway for southeast 
Texas. Regional radar mosaic shows the outflow that moved across 
the region yesterday having pushed through New Orleans early this 
morning with dry conditions across the region. Infrared satellite 
and observations do Show Low stratus/patchy fog beginning to 
develop from near Columbus to Conroe as of 3 am CDT... underneath 
some higher cirrus streaming across the region. 00z upper air 
analysis showed an inverted trough remains over northern Mexico... 
upper ridging over the western Continental U.S. And troughing over the 
east... and southeast Texas under northerly flow. 


Ridging building in from the northwest will help limit rain 
chances for southeast Texas both today and Friday. High resolution 
guidance does show an isolated shower or two will be possible both 
days /primarily from convergence along the coast/. However... with 
a much drier airmass in place /precipitable water values near 1.5 
to 1.7 inches/ and convective temperatures approaching 90 
degrees... anything that is able to develop farther inland will be 
the exception and not the rule. Otherwise... expect temperatures 
today and Friday to be in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Overnight 
lows should fall into the middle 70s to near 80 with patchy fog also 
be possible in more rural areas Friday morning given recent 
rainfall and light winds. 


The overall upper air pattern is expected to persist over the 
upcoming Holiday weekend... but a middle-level speed maximum/disturbance 
located over southeastern Montana per 00z soundings will approach 
the arklatex Friday allowing the upper level trough to push the 
ridge back to the west. Height falls overspreading the region will 
increase rain chances throughout the day on the 4th... with the 
highest northeast of the Houston metropolitan /closer to the actual 
disturbance/. Low rain chances will linger into Sunday as the 
disturbance moves east of the region. In addition to the potential 
for scattered showers and thunderstorms this weekend... heat 
indices are expected to rise to near or slightly above 100 degrees 
each afternoon. 


A flattened ridge begins establishing itself by the beginning of 
next week over the Southern Plains... with rising heights by the 
end of next week increasing temperatures and decreasing rain 
chances for southeast Texas. 


Huffman 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure over the eastern U.S. And lower pressure over West 
Texas will maintain a light to occasionally moderate onshore flow 
through the weekend. A weak inverted trough will bring a chance of 
showers and thunderstorms on July 4th. Wind and seas will be 
higher in and near storms. Upper level ridging will assert itself 
next week. A very typical Summer pattern is setting up with 
lighter winds during the day and slightly stronger winds 
overnight. 43
