NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
1050 am CDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015 


Update... 
surface and upper air analysis this morning placed the region 
southwest of an upper low /presently churning over the Red River/. 
Regional radar mosaic shows a complex of showers slowly swinging 
east-southeast with the upper low... and have bumped probability of precipitation up over 
the northern counties for the remainder of the morning in 
response. Could see some erosion of this activity as it moves 
towards the region /owing to some drier air evident on aircraft 
soundings out of Houston this morning/... and rain chances will 
end from west to east this afternoon as the upper low shifts east 
of the region. Additionally... the combination of cold air 
advection behind front and some areas seeing clouds 
thinning/scattering as drier air works in will create a wide 
variety of temperatures today... and made some adjustments to 
temperatures based on observations. 


For those interested... we could reach or break the record low 
maximum temperature today at College Station. Record low maximum 
climate information for April 28 for College Station... Houston 
intercontinental... and Galveston are listed below. 


Site.... record low maximum... year... 
College Station 67 1932 
Houston intercontinental 66 1941 
Galveston 69 1941 


Additional information is contained within the marine and aviation 
sections below.

Marine... 


Winds coming up and gradient tighter to the west. As 850 front 
reaches the coast early this afternoon expect winds to ramp up 
further at gusty cold air advection scenario to take hold. Have added Small Craft Advisory to 
Matagorda Bay and delayed onset of scec for Galveston Bay. Seas 
should respond by late afternoon reaching 6-7 feet with sustained 
winds near 20 knots and gusty.

&& 


Aviation... 


Light drizzle/rain at cll should expand a little further east as 
vorticity rotates around upper low...may reach uts/cxo terminals 17-22z. 
Ceilings fighting the dry air aloft but have in general been coming in 
lower so with the passage of the 850 front around noon expect ceilings 
to lower and remain in the 1000-2000ft range through the afternoon. 
In addition with stronger cold air advection winds should get gusty this afternoon. 


Some breaks in overcast across the hou/sgr/gls/lbx terminals may be 
possible late in the afternoon as drier air gets to work.

Previous discussion... /issued 355 am CDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015/ 


Discussion... 
the large Upper-Middle level low is becoming slightly sheared as it 
rotates parallel to the Red River valley and is prognosticated by the 
nwp global model ensemble to be over the arklatex by sunset 
tonight. An unseasonably cold and dry air mass (around 2 Standard dev 
I.R.T. Middle-level cooling) is descending upon this upper low's 
western flank...with the southern extent of the air mass the cold 
front that will be advancing south to the coast over the next few 
hours...the boundary to be well offshore by late morning. The 
general synoptic Southern Plains flow pattern will become more 
north and west as Texas Falls between retreating eastern troughing 
and amplifying western Continental U.S. Ridging. This dry and stable pattern 
will persist for the remainder of the week. 


Lingering cloud cover under the Post-frontal inversion...in 
tandem with cold air advection...will regulate today's warmth to 
only the upper 60s to near 70f. Combine this late season cold air advection with 
a near 15 mb offshore pressure gradient created by a descending 
1025 mb Central Plains high and the generation of a fresh near 15 
knots sustained north wind will be the result. As evidenced by upper 
40 dew point air spilling into the state this morning...the once 
overly-saturated resident air mass will transition to a much drier 
one through the day...best realized by this time tomorrow morning 
as minimum temperatures fall into the mean lower 50s (or about 10 
degrees below normal late April standards). A dry reinforcing 
frontal passage Wednesday as western high pressure builds in and 
fortifies the taunt offshore gradient...with more middle-week sun to 
warm Wednesday PM into the lower to middle 70s. High pressure at 
the surface and upper southwestern U.S.-Based ridging through the 
end of the week will guarantee subsequent day warming back into 
the lower 80s by the weekend with continued low to none probability of precipitation. Late 
week eastern Texas high pressure transitioning east will allow 
return flow to re-develop by Friday afternoon. The region will 
still be the grip of upper ridging next weekend. This equates to 
near normal early may conditions....manageable humidities and only 
slight rain chances per weak disturbance passages as Upper-Middle 
ridging begins to break down about a week from now. 31
