1223 am CDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Discussion... 
see aviation for 6z taf issuance.

Aviation... 
most recent amdar soundings for hou shows an MVFR deck likely in 
the next couple of hours as low level moisture continues to move 
into the area. Precipitable waters  have also started to rise across the area 
this evening with Angleton up to 0.8" and climbing. New NAM 
forecast soundings have backed off on IFR ceilings and more closely 
match GFS now. Cirrus has also moved in from the west across the 
area. Tomorrow afternoon an upper level disturbance will move over 
the Gulf waters and should be far enough south of the area to not 
affect any of the terminals. Some of the guidance is showing some 
light rain at kgls from this but as of now system looks to far 
south so will leave mention of precipitation out. 23

Discussion... 
high clouds rolling in from the west as subtropical jet short wave moves 
into Big Bend/drt region. Lower clouds also coming in late 
tonight. Expect that most sites will be mostly cloudy/cloudy by 3 
am. Temperatures fall should slow with the increasing cloud cover 
early this morning...noticeably warmer than last night. 


Some light drizzle possible tomorrow morning mainly after 9 am as 
short wave passes and profile moistens.

Discussion... 
see aviation for 0z taf issuance. 


Aviation... 
winds have been gusty at times today thanks to low pressure 
forming in West Texas. This low will begin to weaken tonight which 
should help winds to calm down a bit. An extensive cirrus shield 
can be seen on visible satellite this evening just to the south 
and west of the area. These high clouds are in association with 
the subtropical jet and will likely move into the area tonight. 
NAM soundings showing IFR to LIFR ceilings forming tonight while 
GFS... rap... and sref showing MVFR ceilings. High clouds will likely 
inhibit some of the radiational cooling which will also help winds 
from fully decoupling (especially in urban areas). This would 
favor MVFR ceilings instead of LIFR/ IFR. 23 


Previous discussion... /issued 313 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014/ 


Discussion... 
a progressive upper air pattern will bring a series of upper 
level shortwave troughs across southeast Texas during the next 
7-day period. The first affects the Gulf waters on Thursday...with 
a weak system over the inland areas Thursday night. Another weak 
system moves overhead on Saturday. A strong upper trough then 
moves out of The Rockies on Saturday and into the Southern Plains 
on Sunday...however this system shears out as it moves across the 
area on Monday. The surface ridge overhead southeast Texas this afternoon 
will generally stay in place...although it does recede somewhat 
through Sunday and rebuilds the ridge over the la and Upper Texas 
coastal areas on Monday and Tuesday. 


The main item of concern the next few days will be temperatures 
and cloud cover. A fairly strong cap will keep rain chances under 
20 percent through Saturday. The shortwave moving over the Gulf 
will lead to mostly cloudy skies and at least sprinkles or 
drizzle under the cap on Thursday. Even though there will be warm 
air advection...temperatures are expected to only be a few 
degrees warmer on Thursday as compared to today mainly because of 
the cloud cover. Warmer temperatures will arrive on Saturday with 
decreasing cloudiness. On Sunday the best vorticity advection 
will be well north of the forecast area although the jet dynamics 
aloft will be somewhat favorable for at least weak convection 
over southeast Texas. The GFS bufr is still capped while 12z GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
are both dry on Saturday and actually keep the bulk of the quantitative precipitation forecast to 
the west on Sunday. For now will lower rain chances both days...10 
percent on Saturday and 20 percent on Sunday. Even though the 
upper trough moves overhead...went with 20 percent Sunday night 
and Monday as well since both models keep the best rain chances to 
the north and west both periods. 


40 


Marine... 
light to moderate east to southeast winds along with slightly 
elevated seas will persist through Thursday night. A brief wind 
shift to the NE will be possible on Friday before onshore winds 
become reestablished Friday night...persisting through the end of 
next week. 43 


Previous discussion... /issued 1206 PM CDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014/ 


Discussion... 
see 18z aviation discussion. 


Aviation... 
VFR conds expected through this evening. NAM and GFS differ with 
regard to the moisture profile after 03z with the NAM more 
aggressive with moisture and consequently lower ceilings. Nam12 
verified well from yesterday but feel it might be a bit too 
aggressive so leaned a bit toward the GFS. The GFS suggests MVFR 
ceilings overnight with conds becoming VFR by middle Thursday morning.
