NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
425 am CST Tuesday Jan 27 2015 


Discussion... 
upper ridging...transitioning from the intermountain west into 
the plains states today...will only reinforce this stable resident 
northwestern flow pattern across the state. As this ridge axis 
travels across the central U.S. Into mid-week...cirrus spilling 
down along its eastern leg will make for a partially cloudy Tuesday 
with unseasonable warming into the early afternoon lower to middle 
70s. North(east)ern Mexico surface high pressure moving into the 
central Gulf through tomorrow morning will back today's westerlies 
onshore by tomorrow. These winds will support near 10 degree above 
normal warmth...with mainly clear skies and light overnight breezes 
will afford a couple of more chilly early mornings in the average 
upper 40s. 


Onshore winds Wednesday through Thursday will swing around to the 
northeast by early Friday behind the next weak cold frontal passage. 
Middle week flattened ridging over the Southern Plains will give way 
to a developing Desert Southwest/Baja California region large upper low. 
Great Basin energy digging south into a broad open wave trough 
will likely slow its overall eastern progression over the weekend. 
The forecast is for a downstream surface trough/low to form over 
central Texas late Saturday...with its northeastern evolution into 
the arklatex allowing for a moderate cold front to pass through on 
Sunday. Areawide rain chances for rain and/or showers will increase 
from slight (early saturday) to likely (late Saturday into sunday) 
per more efficient warm air advection ahead of the frontal boundary 
..along with better upper level forcing from eastern Texas falling 
under the right rear quadrant of the jet stream. The extended models 
diverge on how to handle the early week (february) weather pattern. 
The GFS solution sluggishly hangs the core upper low off to the 
southwest while the more progressive Euro places a quasi-zonal 
flow (sans any troughing) over the Southern Plains for days 7 and 
8. Currently have leaned towards the more natural synoptic trend 
of the European model (ecmwf)...cold and dry with slight to low end probability of precipitation to begin 
the next work week. 31 


&& 


Marine... 
fairly light winds and low seas for the next several days. Some 
of the forecast guidance suggesting potential for some sea fog near 
the gls Bay area once onshore flow resumes later tonight and again 
Wednesday nt. Don't see dewpoints exceeding h20 temperatures by much so probably 
won't mention at this time but will keep an eye on things. Weak frontal 
boundary will approach the coast Friday with resulting increasing NE 
winds in its wake...possibly to caution criteria. Winds veer back 
to the southeast Sat ahead of the next (stronger) front penciled in for 
Sunday. Unsettled weather prior to frontal passage. 47 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR conditions with light winds and variable cirrus coverage 
today. Forecast guidance showing potential for some shallow fog 
overnight. May mention at the more suceptible sites but probably 
won't go as low a guidance suggestions yet due to uncertainty. 
Will let the next shift further evaluate. 47
