 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...

18z aviation discussion below.

Aviation... 
little regional air mass change over the next 24-30 hours. The 
resident unstable air mass will remain unseasonably moist through 
Thursday. Although most convective activity will remain north of 
the metropolitan hubs today...increasing chances for more widespread Gulf 
precipitation moving inland during the early am Wednesday hours will 
place more coastal terminals under moderate chances for speed 
convergence rain showers or thunderstorms and rain through sunrise. Thus...the thinking is 
that many terminals will experience brief periods of passing 
showers...with that even shorter-lived thunderstorm...passing 
within the vicinity from late morning through mid-afternoon. 31

Previous discussion... /issued 1026 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/ 


Update... 
see morning update. 


Discussion... 
12z soundings show precipitable water values between 2.1 and 2.2 inches and this 
is supported by GPS met data, convective temperatures are between 86 and 
88 degrees today and this threshold will be met easily. A well 
developed shortwave extends from central Arkansas into central Texas 
which serve as another focus for shra/tsra. Upper level riding has 
inched closer to southeast Texas which will impart a bit of subsidence. The 
rap is very aggressive with rainfall this afternoon while the 
hrrr/arw-east remain more benign. The rap was overdone yesterday 
and did not initialize all that well so have leaned toward a hrrr/WRF 
blend. Chance probability of precipitation look appropriate so no changes to the pop/weather 
grids. Did bump maximum T grids up a few degrees to match trends/obs. 
As for ts Dolly...the storm will probably make landfall a bit 
earlier...sometime this evening. The main effect for southeast Texas will be 
increasing swells over the offshore marine zones and a 1.0-1.5 
foot bump up in tide levels. New zones out by 1030 am. 43 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 405 am CDT Tuesday Sep 2 2014/ 


Discussion... 
a few showers are moving northward across the coastal waters this 
morning in association with an area of deeper moisture which is 
approaching the Upper Texas coast. Further to the south...dew point 5 has 
strengthened into Tropical Storm Dolly this morning. The center of 
the system has formed a bit further north that previously expected 
which has caused a corresponding shift in the forecast track. The 
only additional impacts to southeast Texas will be some slightly 
higher seas offshore as the new track still takes the system into 
Mexico well south of the border. 


Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop inland later 
this morning as moisture streams back into the region. Coverage 
should increase across our northern counties late this afternoon 
as a passing shortwave brings additional lift to the region. Given 
the rich moisture a few brief heavy downpours will be possible 
with the activity today. High temperatures should remain in the 
low to middle 90s areawide with the precipitation and greater cloud 
cover. 


Only slight changes for the middle to extended range forecast this 
morning. The upper level pattern overhead remains relatively 
unchanged through the week with a broad Flat Ridge across the 
southern United States. This will allow for continued diurnally 
driven showers and thunderstorms with high temperatures in the low 
to middle 90s...near the normals for the first week of September. 38 


&& 


Marine... 
Tropical Storm Dolly is located in the Bay of Campeche early 
this morning. Based on the current forecast...Dolly is expected 
to approach the coast of Mexico by tonight and move inland by 
Wednesday morning. Building seas can be expected along the Upper 
Texas coast. Caution flags are currently in effect...and advisories 
might be needed if seas build higher than anticipated. Periods of 
showers and thunderstorms can be expected across our area over the 
next couple of days. Toward the end of the week...expect weakening 
onshore winds and lowering seas. 42
