Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 1:24 PM CDT on September 2, 2014


... Dry conditions continued in August over most of southeast
Texas...

The month of August 2014 ended up on the dry side and with near
normal temperatures at most of the climate sites across southeast
Texas. Those first- or second-order sites which received over one
inch of monthly rainfall experienced these amounts during one of
three episodes.

A cold front brought cooler than normal conditions and sporadic
rainfall during the first week of the month. The second week
started out warm but then ended with another cold frontal passage
that brought some rainfall. The mid month period experienced very
warm conditions as the subtropical ridge build overhead. August
ended with the ridge breaking down and an upper level low pressure
area bringing scattered thunderstorms and cooler than normal
temperatures.

The climatological Summer defined as the months of
June... July... and August has come to an end. There were no 100
degree days recorded at any of the four first-order climate sites
during this period. Houston has not had a Summer free of 100
degree days since since 1997 and College Station has not achieved
this feat since 2004. The average temperature for the Summer was
also cooler than normal for areas north of I-10 and a bit warmer
than normal for areas south of of I-10. The following table gives
the 2014 Summer average temperature along with the 30-year average
temperature and departure as a comparison for the four first-order
climate sites.

College Station 83.4 84.1 -0.7
city of Galveston 84.5 84.1 +0.3
Houston hobby 83.7 83.3 +0.4


Even with the sporadic rain events... dry conditions continued over
most of southeast Texas as all but three of the climate sites
recorded below normal rainfall. Deficits ranged between -1.21 and
-4.33 inches. The sites which experienced above normal rainfall
were Galveston /+.56 inches/... Sugar Land /+2.99 inches/... and
Angleton /+0.54 inches/. As of August 26th... abnormally dry to
moderate drought conditions were reported by the U.S. Drought
monitor generally along and west of a line from Snook to Wallis to
Sargent. The following table gives a few more details...

Aviation... 
mostly VFR conditions expected for the taf sites through the 
issuance. Might get some low cloud development tomorrow morning 
but they should quickly lift after the sun rises. Forecast 
soundings for tomorrow show lower moisture values with pretty good 
instability in the soundings. An upper level ridge will be 
building a bit tomorrow afternoon though so think slightly less 
coverage tomorrow than today. 23 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 415 PM CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/ 


Discussion... 
scattered rain showers/thunderstorms and rain will continue over mainly the northern half of 
southeast Texas through early evening. Storms will begin to diminish with 
the loss of heating. Ts Dolly will make landfall over northern 
Mexico sometime this evening and only bring long period swells to 
the offshore marine zones and slightly elevated tides. A flattish 
500 mb ridge slowly builds into southeast Texas from the east later this 
week and precipitable water values remain between 1.8 and 1.9 inches through 
Friday. Despite the building ridge...500 heights never really 
increase much with values around 590 dm. Convective temperatures also 
remain between 88 and 90 degrees which is reachable. There really 
isn't a trigger for widespread rainfall but you can't rule out an 
occasional rain showers either so will maintain 20 probability of precipitation through the 
Friday. On Sunday...precipitable water values increase to 2.1 inches and both the 
European model (ecmwf) and GFS bring a weak boundary into southeast Texas. Ll convergence 
along the boundary increases Sunday afternoon and coupled with the 
high moisture content...feel rain chances will be on the rise. 
Raised probability of precipitation to chance for Sunday. The upper pattern doesn't look 
conducive for a front to make it into southeast Texas but both models have 
been hinting at the front entering southeast Texas for the last few days. A 
deep upper trough will move into the intermountain west early next 
week. The ridge over Texas will amplify in response to this and 
rain chances will diminish and temperatures will warm a bit. 43 


Marine... 
based on satellite...short-lived Tropical Storm Dolly appears to be 
coming onshore this afternoon. The effects of Dolly...if any...will 
also be short-lived and in the form of a higher period swell across 
the far offshore western waters. A brief time frame between tonight 
and into early Wednesday morning of greater than 6 foot seas...a 
short fuse Small Craft Advisory will be issued this afternoon to communicate this 
elevated sea threat. There is a chance for some minor water run-up along 
Highway 87 during the overnight hours. Overall southeasterlies will 
remain at...or slightly under...20 knots through tomorrow afternoon... 
weakening back to sub-caution conditions by sunset Wednesday. Weak 
disturbances rotating underneath southern U.S. Ridging will occasionally 
make it into the Upper Texas coastal waters. This will provide the trigger 
for return widely scattered rain and isolated thunderstorms over the next 
several days. 31
