NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
522 PM CST sun Nov 23 2014 


Discussion... 
00z taf discussion in aviation section. 


&& 


Aviation... 
overall southeast Texas terminals should have VFR ceilings the next 24 hours. 
Winds will be changing direction tonight. Overall SW winds should 
decrease this evening. Cold front over North Texas should push into the 
area. Front should reach kcll/kuts/kcxo around 04-05z 
..kiah/khou/ksgr around 05-06z and the coast around 06z-07z. 
There may be a few gusts but not expecting much with the front 
except for kgls/klbx. Winds turn more northerly during the day 
tomorrow.

Previous discussion... /issued 317 PM CST sun Nov 23 2014/ 


Discussion... 
much quieter weather has settled in over southeast Texas behind 
yesterday/S storm system with clear skies...with temperatures 
generally in the upper 70s to 80 as of 3 PM and gusty 
southwesterly winds across the area. This afternoon/S winds have 
been courtesy a deepening surface low over central Oklahoma 
ejecting eastward towards the Mississippi River valley. A cold 
front associated with this feature was located roughly along a 
Fort Sumner /nm/ to Floydada /TX/ to Stillwater /OK/ line as of 3 
PM. Afternoon water vapor imagery shows broad longwave troughing 
dominating the Continental U.S....with several shortwave disturbances 
rotating around the base of said trough. 


The cold front will push into southeast Texas later this evening 
and offshore into the Gulf after midnight. Since atmospheric 
moisture has not had a chance to recover...expect a dry frontal 
passage with southwesterly winds becoming northwesterly around 
10-15 miles per hour. Cooler and drier air will filter in behind the front 
and winds will decrease throughout the day Monday as surface high 
pressure slides towards the area. Highs Monday look to be about 15 
degrees cooler than today...although the coolest low temperatures 
of the week in the 30s inland and 40s along the coast won't be 
realized until Tuesday and Wednesday under the surface high. 


The longwave trough shifts east Tuesday...dragging another 
disturbance across the area as it does and both the NAM and European model (ecmwf) 
try to break out a few showers during the day on Tuesday with the 
trough/S passage. Low level moisture at this point in time will 
still be scant so think that any quantitative precipitation forecast generated inland is 
overdone...but forecast soundings do indicate this disturbance 
will transport enough middle and upper level moisture from the 
Pacific to bring some passing clouds over southeast Texas. A few 
showers over the coastal waters will be possible with weak surface 
convergence along the coast...but otherwise the forecast for the 
area on Tuesday remains dry. 


By mid-week...temperatures begin a warming trend with westerly 
surface winds in place. The forecast for Thanksgiving is 
definitely one to give thanks for... with clear skies and highs 
topping out near 70. The surface high will begin sliding east on 
Thanksgiving and Lee surface troughing Thursday/Friday will not 
only allow Gulf moisture to return to the region but help keep 
temperatures warm into the weekend. Saturday and Sunday look to be 
the warmest days of the forecast with 850 mb temperatures across 
the area approaching 13 to 15 degrees c. 


Quasizonal flow becomes established by Saturday...but the European model (ecmwf) 
and GFS disagree a bit on the solution for what will happen 
towards the end of next weekend. The GFS sags a front into North 
Texas Sunday into Monday...while the European model (ecmwf) keeps it hung up over 
the northern Great Plains. Curiously enough...both models indicate 
the potential for rainfall over southeast Texas but for slightly 
different reasons. The GFS is slightly deeper with an upper level 
trough over the northern Great Plains but at this point a 
flattened upper air pattern over the southern Continental U.S. Does not 
appear favorable for a front to make it very far south. Still a 
few days for models to come into better agreement and keeping probability of precipitation 
below mention at the moment...but a warm air advection scenario /which is what 
the European model (ecmwf) is advertising/ seems plausible.

Marine... 
will keep the caution flags up for the 00-60 nm waters through Monday. 
Winds and seas might come down later this afternoon and this evening... 
but both are expected to pick back up again with the passage of a cold 
front after midnight tonight. Caution to low end advisory conditions 
that should develop behind the front overnight could persist into 
tomorrow afternoon. Weaker northeast winds Tuesday and Tuesday night 
will turn to the south to southwest beginning on Wednesday and will 
persist from that direction for the remainder of the week and into 
the weekend. Mariners on Thanksgiving day can expect south to 
southwest winds at 5 to 10 knots with 1 to 2 foot seas nearshore and 
2 to 3 foot seas offshore. 42
