NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
348 PM CST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Discussion... 
partly cloudy skies across southeast Texas this afternoon thanks 
to a 1036 mb surface high pressure centered over the 
Missouri/Kansas border that southeast Texas is on the southern 
edge of. Middle and high level clouds continue to move up and over 
the upper level ridge centered over northern Mexico into the area 
from an upper level trough over Baja California California. 


During the day on Saturday the surface high will move off to the 
east and the upper level disturbance...currently over Baja California 
California...will continue to moving eastward towards Texas. 
Saturday looks to be a mostly cloudy but dry day. Both the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) show a 250mb warm pocket associated with the trough moving 
into southeast Texas by 6z Sunday. 700mb GFS dewpoint depressions 
reach 5 degrees and below between Sunday 6z and 12z Sunday. GFS 
and NAM forecast soundings show a saturated column beginning 6z 
Sunday that dries out by 00z Monday. GFS and NAM show the best positive vorticity advection 
between Sunday 6z to Sunday 18z. Both the NAM...GFS...ECMWF also 
seem to be in agreement with the timing of the front...having it 
in the northern portions of the County Warning Area by 00z Monday and to the 
coast by 12 Monday. 30kt warm air advection Sunday morning and afternoon should 
provide for plenty of lift for some prefrontal rainfall. The rain 
should come to an end once the 850 mb front moves through the 
area...around 12z Monday as shown by both the GFS and European model (ecmwf). 
Isolated thunder is also possible with the front as GFS soundings 
indicate cape values of between 500-800 j/kg Sunday afternoon. 


Monday morning low temperatures will likely make into the middle and upper 
30s for the northern counties in southeast Texas as high builds in 549 
dm line making it through the northern counties. 


The rest of the week will stay unsettled as the upper level trough 
continues moving east...and a series of disturbances ride out 
ahead of the main system into southeast Texas giving the chance 
for rainfall again on Wednesday and Thursday. 


Friday through next weekend look be fairly quiet weather wise as 
an upper level high pressure moves towards Baja California California...and 
upper level ridging sets up over southeast Texas. Southeast Texas 
also looks to be on the edge a surface high centered over the Middle 
Atlantic States.

Marine.. 


Winds have continued to relax over the coastal waters 
this afternoon as the thermal gradient behind yesterday/S cold front 
slackens. Seas are still running about 4 to 6 feet...but are 
expected to decrease tonight and will let caution flags go at 4 PM. 


The main focus for the marine package was a strong cold front moving 
into the coastal waters late Sunday...as well as rain with an 
embedded isolated thunderstorm or two ahead of the front late 
Saturday into Sunday. Best chances for isolated thunderstorms will 
occur during the day on Sunday...with an occasional lightning strike 
posing the primary threat to mariners. As the cold front clears the 
coast Sunday night into Monday morning...increasing winds and 
building seas behind the front will likely prompt the issuance of 
small craft advisories on Monday /with wind gusts to near gale force 
a possibility/. Surface ridging building into the area behind the 
front will allow winds to relax on Tuesday...with another cold front 
possible late next week.
