... Brief funnel clouds possible today...

Rich moisture across portions of southeast Texas... mainly along and
south of a line from Caldwell to Houston to High Island... could

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
1040 am CDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Update... 
slow-moving showers and light rain affecting the western forecast 
area this morning...putting down between 1.5 to 2.5 inches locally 
over parts of Colorado...Austin and Waller counties. Although 
there will be isolated inland thunder...the majority of the storm 
clusters are offshore...located approximately 20 nm and beyond off 
Galveston Island. The noted upper height weakness current laying 
over the western Gulf Coast...with the 500 mb ridge centered over New 
Mexico...will be the pattern over the next 24 to 48 hours. Ample 
column moisture and unstable profiles suggest that chance probability of precipitation 
will linger on through the day...possible return again Friday. No 
discernible shortwave disturbance rounding the eastern periphery 
of the upper ridge...nor any near term foreseeable upstream outflow 
boundary as a trigger (as was case this morning)...will keep overnight 
into early Friday rain chances on the slight side. Early day sun 
up north may counter recently wettened ground in producing maximum 
temperatures in the mean middle 90s. 31

Previous discussion... /issued 632 am CDT Thursday Jul 24 2014/ 


Discussion... 
12z taf discussion in aviation section. 


Aviation... 
squall line that pushed into the area late last night has shed a 
strong outflow boundary that initiated convection along it over 
the Houston area. Those storms have since pushed into the Gulf and 
the outflow now stretches from west of kcll to west of kbyy. This has 
allowed for temperatures to drop into the low 70s and dewpoints in the 
upper 60s mainly north of kiah. Think outflow will stabilize 
atmosphere for awhile until day time heating allows for recovery. 
With dewpoints in the low 70s along the coast and sea breeze 
possibly developing...could see isolated storms by late afternoon. Do 
not think coverage warrants thunderstorms in the vicinity in tafs but will keep in 
kiah/khou/sgr tafs as these will be areas most likely to have 
thunderstorms and rain in the area. This will also depend on upper levels of 
atmosphere becoming for favorable for convection with any vorticity 
maxes rotating through the flow. Ceilings should stay VFR and expect 
light winds again overnight. May need to consider lower visibility 
tomorrow morning but not confident enough to put in tafs. 39

Previous discussion... /issued 402 am CDT Thursday Jul 24 2014/ 


Discussion... 
the upper low that was over the Louisiana coast yesterday has 
sheared out early this morning...with the leftover trough 
stretching from eastern Louisiana to the middle Texas coast. A 
general northerly flow was in place aloft due to the weakening 
trough and an upper high centered over western Colorado and nm. The 
models generally build the high pressure ridge over eastern Texas 
and northern Louisiana Friday through Sunday...then then over southeast 
Texas on Monday as an upper trough begins to dig southward from the 
Great Lakes. As this trough pushes into the lower Mississippi 
Valley during the middle week period...the high will push westward 
into the Desert Southwest and return a northwesterly flow overhead 
the forecast area. 


The main problem for today concerns thunderstorm chances. The 
short term and high resolution models agree with the best rain 
chances over the southern half of the forecast area. Storm motion 
will again be generally from the northeast to southwest...while 
model forecast soundings also indicate the potential for gusty 
winds and heavy downpours in the stronger storms. Of note...the 
NAM bufr forecasts precipitable water/S from 1.8 in the northwest to near 2 inches 
toward the coast...while the afternoon sounding forecasts an 
inverted v profile below 850 mb and dcape values of 700 to 1100 
j/kg. 


Kept the isolated chances for thunderstorms in the forecast for 
Friday as the ecwmf in particular keeps the weakness aloft 
overhead and the GFS ensemble forecasts slight chances for rain. 
However...the main forecast challenge for Friday through Monday 
will be daytime high temperatures. Even though the ridge will 
build overhead...the guidance has backed off a bit on the very 
warm temperatures. Given the overall soil moisture content... 
slightly cooler than expected highs are likely. However...still 
expect highs of 96 to 98 across the central and western counties. 
The heat index will also be warmest over the Friday through 
Monday...with values ranging from 102 to 106 each afternoon. 


With the upper trough digging southward into the lower Mississippi 
Valley on Tuesday and Wednesday...both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) push a 
summertime cold front southward into east and southeast Texas. 
There is still some uncertainty on how far south the front will 
be...but for now it looks like both days will probably see a 
return of thunderstorm chances and slightly cooler daytime 
temperatures. 40 


&& 


Marine... 
do not expect much change in the forecast for the Upper Texas coast. 
Generally expect south to southwest winds through the end of the 
week and into the weekend. Winds may increase to moderate levels 
over the weekend but then decrease early next week as a frontal 
boundary approaches East Texas. Light to moderate winds will support 
mainly low seas for the next several days. No marine hazards are 
expected at this time. 39
