NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
944 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014 


Discussion... 
short term update for increasing cin and cloud cover. Have lowered 
probability of precipitation tonight based on the high res models and synoptic models for 
that matter showing decreasing coverage of the storms along the 
frontal boundary. Lead short wave can be seen on WV moving through OK and 
helped with initiation of storms in central OK and trailing back 
along the frontal boundary. This short wave tracks east-southeast and looks to be 
rapidly outrunning the ll focus. Speed maximum that should help aid 
development tomorrow may be far enough to the northeast to have 
less impact but still enough with frontal convergence for 
overcoming the cap and producing scattered showers and 
thunderstorms in the morning up north and inland areas in the 
afternoon. Satellite and sref do have the area underneath the 
moist axis so confidence is still pretty high that the region will 
see the scattered storms and probability of precipitation may need bumping up. Some 
doubts about how far south it will move as outflow may be the best 
means to get it to the coast and the best dcape is in the middle 
afternoon hours.

see aviation for 0z taf issuance. 


Aviation... 
all sites VFR this afternoon as next storm system to affect 
southeast Texas is currently located in Oklahoma. Last night some 
sites briefly went MVFR and think there will be another slight 
chance tonight but any sites that do go MVFR should quickly 
bounce back to VFR as the sunrises. Tomorrow afternoon a surface 
cold front currently located in Oklahoma will move southwards and 
approach the area. GFS and NAM both show precipitation starting at kcll 
around 1 PM. Rain chances then move into the city around 5 PM. 
Global models continue to show pretty good coverage in the quantitative precipitation forecast 
fields while the high res models show coverage quickly dissipating 
as rain moves into southeast Texas. Forecast soundings show a cap 
in place tomorrow that quickly dissipates as the shortwave 
approaches. Overall have leaned towards the global models due to 
the boundary remaining in close proximity to the area with ample 
moisture. Future taf packages will continue to refine the coverage 
and timing of potential precipitation. 23 


Previous discussion... /issued 317 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014/ 


Discussion... 
the models keep a northwesterly flow over southeast Texas through the 
upcoming weekend. This will help drive a weak cold front into the 
forecast area late on Thursday or early Friday. Both the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) hang the front up along or off the coast through the 
weekend. During the early part of next week both models do appear 
to try and build the upper ridge back overhead...but both do keep 
a weakness in the ridge over the lower Mississippi Valley and the 
northwestern Gulf of Mexico. Both models do push the weak front 
back inland Monday and Tuesday. 


The main forecast challenge is thunderstorm chances and coverage 
late Thursday into Friday. Also concerned about the possibility 
of locally heavy rainfall. A decent shortwave trough will 
accompany the cold front into southeast Texas. At the same time...the upper 
levels show a good diffluent flow. Even though the model guidance 
keeps the probability of precipitation generally between 30 and 40 percent...the forecast 
soundings show precipitable water/S up to around 2.3 inches and cape values 
between 2000 and 3000. Will monitor the model trends over the next 
24 hours in order to pinpoint the best chances and coverage of the 
rainfall threat. 


The models keep best rainfall chances along or off the coast from 
late Friday through Monday. After the frontal boundary moves 
inland...isolated chances still look possible Tuesday and 
Wednesday. 


40 


Marine... 
light...mainly onshore flow will persist through Thursday night. A cool 
front will approach the coast Friday. This boundary will meander 
back and forth near the coastline through the weekend and should 
serve as a focus for showers and thunderstorms. Light/variable 
winds should persist with low seas - exception being in and near 
storms which could be strong at times. More prevalent onshore flow 
should resume early next week...but winds/seas still don't look 
very impressive. 47 


Previous discussion... /issued 1217 PM CDT Wednesday Jul 30 2014/ 


Aviation... 
should see a fairly quiet 18-24 hours with mainly VFR conditions 
persisting. May see some isolated afternoon thunderstorm cells pop up...so will 
keep an eye on things. But chances look too low to mention in 
individual tafs at this time. Similar conditions tonight as last night 
with just some brief & patchy MVFR ceilings/visible late. Thunderstorm chances 
increase Thursday afternoon as cool front moves closer to southeast Texas. This 
boundary along west/ seabreeze will provide a focusing mechanism. 
Potential exists for some localized strong cells. 47
