Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
552 PM CST Monday Feb 8 2016 




Aviation... 
VFR. Strong gusty winds should diminish quickly between 00-02z to 
6-10kts. Winds again tomorrow morning from the northwest but in 
the afternoon should relax a little and may vary more in 
direction.

.Critical fire weather conditions to persist through early 
evening... 


Discussion... 
incredibly dry air over southeast Texas (conroe surface dew pt of 4 degrees at 
2 pm) coupled with strong gusty winds has created dangerous fire 
weather conditions today. Will maintain the red flag warning 
through 7 PM but winds should begin to decouple after 00z and feel 
the threat should begin to diminish this evening. Although 
sustained winds will probably fall below 25 miles per hour before 00z...am a 
little nervous that wind gusts to 35 miles per hour will persist so am going 
to let the Wind Advisory continue through 6 PM. The dry air in 
place will allow surface temperatures to cool into low/middle 30s tonight. Maximum 
temperatures on Tuesday will be similar to today with a ridge of high 
pressure extending from Canada into northern Mexico. Dry air will 
remain in place but the fire weather threat looks more benign as 
lighter winds prevail. The high shifts east Tuesday night and low 
pressure should begin to develop over the western High Plains. 
This will allow for onshore winds and a return to warmer 
temperatures Wed-Fri. Upper level ridging over the desert SW will 
flatten a bit as a shortwave over the central rockies moves east on 
Friday night. Another cold front will cross the state early Saturday 
morning and am not completely convinced the front will clear southeast 
Texas as pressures over the Texas Panhandle begin to fall early Sunday. 
The GFS/European model (ecmwf) both develop a surface low over central Texas Sunday afternoon 
and move it east Sunday night into Monday. They differ with the 
strength of the surface feature and the sharpness of a middle level shortwave. 
The European model (ecmwf) is stronger with both features and generates a pretty 
good shot of rain while the GFS is weaker and drier. Chance probability of precipitation 
are already in the forecast and will leave things as they are 
until the GFS/European model (ecmwf) converge on a solution. 43 


Marine... 
the Small Craft Advisory will be in effect for all waters through 6 
PM CST...low water advisory is in effect through midnight and may 
need to be extended into Tuesday. Bay and nearshore advisory 
conditions are expected to fall to caution criteria shortly after 
sunset with nearshore winds staying around 15 knots past 
sunrise/local Bay winds to fall to between 10-15 kts overnight. 
Offshore winds are expected to stay at advisory levels through a 
good part of Tuesday morning. Western high pressure moving in over 
waters and then exiting east at middle week will weaken these north 
winds through late Tuesday over offshore locations...allow a light 
to occasionally moderate southwest wind pattern to become dominant 
during the late week period. There may be times that thursday's 
offshore west-southwesterly winds reach caution levels Thursday. 31 


Fire weather... 
a very dry air mass in the wake of this morning's cold frontal passage 
has lowered dew points into the single digits...relative humidities 
in the teens. Superimpose a regionally strong north wind field and 
this is what will keep the red flag warning in place through this 
afternoon. If not before today...fuels are becoming well cured and 
this has exacerbated the potential for the development and rapid 
spread of wildfire. Winds will come down tonight but...under a 
continued offshore breeze...relative humidities will remain low 
during the subsequent afternoon hours. Not much relief in sight 
over the coming days as humidities stay low per the slow 
development of late week southwesterlies that will reach moderate 
near 15 miles per hour magnitudes during times of 40 percent or under 
relative humidities. 31
