NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
857 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015 


Discussion... 
watching a line of strong/severe storms heading toward our western 
counties this evening. At this time...Storm Prediction Center was not planning on issuing 
any watches with this storm complex. If the latest run of the hrrr 
is correct...expect these storms to weaken as they move into and 
across our area. 42 
&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 610 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Discussion... 
see 00z aviation discussion. 


Aviation... 
southern taf sites will endure an hour or so of thunderstorms and rain but after 
that things look to finally settle down. A disturbance over 
central Texas will move east this evening and could bring a band 
of rain showers/thunderstorms and rain across the northern taf sites during the middle evening. 
The hrrr initialized reasonably well and have leaned toward that 
model for thunderstorms and rain chances tonight. Forecast soundings show some 
potential for clearing skies later tonight. The ground remains 
saturated and if skies clear...feel the potential for fog...some 
locally dense will be high. 43 


Previous discussion... /issued 445 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Discussion... 
sent out an updated forecast package and raised probability of precipitation area wide due 
to ongoing/developing convection across the coastal counties and 
off the coast...and for developing storms out west that the models 
have moving into the area this evening. Some of the storms could 
have the potential to become strong or severe...with damaging winds... 
large hail...and locally heavy rainfall the primary severe weather 
threats. 42 


Previous discussion... /issued 340 PM CDT Sat Apr 18 2015/ 


Discussion... 
the upper low over eastern Colorado will open up and shear out over the 
plains during the next day or two. A couple of shortwave troughs 
moving overhead will bring scattered thunderstorms across southeast Texas 
during a couple of episodes tonight...the first during the late 
afternoon and early evening and the second from late evening 
into the overnight period. Cannot rule out the possibility of an 
isolated or strong thunderstorm. Although the main storm action 
well offshore of the coast has been stealing most of the inflow 
moisture...the latest satellite trends indicate that the storms 
near Matagorda Bay were beginning to exhibit cooling cloud tops. 
There is also a slight chance that the storms over the far 
southwestern set of counties may contain locally heavy rainfall 
during the remaining afternoon hours. The second round of storms 
was being forecasted by the hrrr and Texas tech WRF to move over 
the northwestern and northern set of counties between about 9 PM 
and 2 am or so. Rap forecast sounding show the potential for 
isolated strong or severe storms with these as well. 


High pressure should then build overhead Sunday and Monday and 
lower the rain chances. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) agree with onshore 
winds and rain chances returning by Wednesday. 


Marine... 
an upper level disturbance will generate scattered to numerous 
showers and thunderstorms across the coastal waters this evening. 
Some storms could be strong. Otherwise...onshore flow will persist 
through Sunday. A cold front will push off the coast Sunday night 
with moderate offshore winds in its wake. Winds will diminish and 
veer back to the southeast by late Tuesday night as high pressure 
pushes off to the east. 47
