Aviation... 
the cold front has already pushed through kcll and kuts at 2330z. 
Expect the front to move through kcxo by 01z...the metropolitan Houston 
airports between 02z and 04z...klbx by 04z...and kgls by 05z. VFR 
conditions ahead of the front will be offset by isolated showers. 
Conditions behind the front will deteriorate...with IFR 
conditions with north winds of 20 to 30 knots quickly developing. 
Gusts may reach to near 35 knots overnight tonight into Thursday 
morning. 


Best rain chances will be behind the front. The rain may change 
over or mix with sleet or freezing rain before ending at kcll and 
kuts between about 11z and 15z. Conditions looked too warm further 
to the south for wintry precipitation. The rain should end by middle 
morning...although a lingering shower will be possible through the 
early afternoon. The IFR conditions and gusty winds will be slow 
to subside. However...the nambufr was forecasting a return to VFR 
from about khou and ksgr northward after about 21z.

Previous discussion... /issued 344 PM CST Wednesday Mar 4 2015/ 


Discussion... 
the cold front is at our northern border this afternoon. At 3pm 
the temperature in College Station was 75 degrees while in Hearne 
the temperature was 57 degrees. Winds will pick up and 
temperatures will fall quickly with the passage of the front. 
Timing remains roughly the same with the front expected to move 
into the metropolitan area around 7pm and off the coast around midnight. 
Widespread light rain is expected with perhaps a rumble of thunder 
across our northwestern counties where a few isolated 
thunderstorms may occur overnight. 


Little change to thinking for any winter weather across southeast 
Texas. With temperatures currently in the middle 70s the ground will 
remain quite warm even into Thursday morning. Atmospheric profiles 
are cool enough tomorrow morning to support a mix of rain and 
sleet across our far northern counties and a few slick spots are 
possible. Area of greatest concern would be parts of Houston and 
Trinity counties between 7-10 am...although little to no impacts 
are expected. Temperatures will be colder Thursday night into 
Friday but with precipitation clearing the region by Thursday 
afternoon no travel impacts are expected. A light freeze is 
possible as far south as the coastal counties Friday morning and 
the I-10 corridor Saturday so sensitive plants should remain 
covered into the weekend. 


Rain chances return by Sunday as the upper trough slowly begins to 
move off to the east. Best rain chances will lie along the coast 
and offshore through early next week. Temperatures will slowly 
warm with highs in the middle 60s and lows in the upper 40s by the 
middle of next week. 38 


Marine... 
the sea fog has returned and vts and pilots reporting shut out 
conditions in lower Galveston Bay and across Matagorda Bay. The 
fog should continue until the Arctic front arrives...close to 10 
PM Matagorda and 11 PM for Galveston. Gale conditions tonight 
after midnight with 25-35 knot sustained winds and gusts 40-45 
knots. Seas may build to 15 feet well offshore with very rough 
conditions on the bays. Low water advisory with very strong 
currents squeezing out Thursday morning in the Lower Bay. Gale 
conditions should lessen Thursday afternoon bays and nearshore 
first. May need to extend the Gale Warning for the 20-60nm waters 
Thursday afternoon. 45
