NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
233 PM CDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Discussion...very pleasant day across the forecast area with 
temperatures trending toward the norm. Satellite imagery showing 
some broken to scattered cumulus about the area...and some cirrus 
aloft. Isolated morning showers and few thunderstorms dissipated 
upon advancing into the eastern portion of the region. Activity 
developed along 850 mb jet axis...with the northern and stronger 
storms appearing to get a little extra boost from some divergence 
aloft. Radar now clear of any precipitation. 


Limited chances to forecast. Rather breezy southerly winds will 
lay down rapidly approaching sunset. This ahead of a weak northwest-southeast 
oriented frontal boundary prognosticated to advance across the area during 
the late afternoon and evening hours. Moisture/lift appears 
limited...and at this time including our only rain chance over the 
northeast portion of the area. Any Post-frontal changes will be 
limited to no more than a very brief decrease in dewpoints...and an 
equally brief northerly flow. Front will then stall moving 
offshore... and retreat rapidly northward moving through Friday as 
a deep low level southerly flow becomes reestablished. 


Returning southerlies will maintain temperatures at or slightly 
above the norm through Friday and the weekend. Flow will usher in 
higher dewpoints...and with that will see a continued threat of 
overnight and early morning advection fog. Latest guidance 
suggesting that the boundary layer flow may be sufficient to 
maintain more of a stratus layer than fog. Other than that...will 
hold onto a chance for a few showers and thunderstorms 
Saturday...increasing Sunday as a deepening and increasingly 
vigorous middle/upper low advances into the middle plains inducing a 
significant surface cyclone. 


Ingredients of aforementioned system coming together in such a 
fashion that a severe threat will be in place both Sunday and Monday. 
This will all be ahead of a significant frontal passage prognosticated 
for late Monday. Front will be followed by sharply drier and 
cooler air settling into the area for mid-week. 


&& 


Aviation...not too many changes from the previous forecast. Earlier 
convection near kcxo has since weakened/pushed east of the 
area...while light shower activity continues to trek from east 
along and south of a roughly karm to kgls line. NE to SW oriented 
cold front continues a steady southeast push...and should reach 
just northwest of kcll by 00z...and near kcxo by 06z. Progress is 
forecast to slow as the boundary takes on a more east-west orientation...but 
is forecast to continue oozing toward the coast while weakening. Morning 
radiosonde observations at kcrp and klch indicated healthy convective 
inhibition...which forecast soundings indicate should remain in 
place over the southern half or so of the area...while eroding 
farther north. The thunderstorms in the vicinity at kcll and kuts was left as is. 
Otherwise...the area should continue to see a mix of cloud 
cover...mostly VFR...with MVFR more likely in the same general 
area where the current light shower activity is...klbx and kgls. 




&& 


Marine...a weak cold front will advance into the coastal waters 
overnight. A weak offshore flow will develop in its wake. 
Southerlies will become reestablished Friday as the boundary lifts 
north as warm front. Winds will strengthen and seas build over the 
weekend between high pressure ridging through the Gulf 
waters...and low pressure deepening over the plains. This system 
will bring a strong frontal passage early in the week...followed 
by a gusty offshoe flow.
