Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Weather Statement  Statement as of 7:17 am CDT on September 25, 2014


        ... elevated tides possible through tonight...

Tide levels have increased to 1.0 to 1.5 feet above normal this
morning due to a prolonged easterly fetch. Water levels may rise
further as east winds will likely persist through the day. The
long easterly fetch has also produced long period swells that will
propagate toward the coast. This could further increase tidal
action and increase the risk for some minor beach erosion.

Below is a table with the next high tide and expected water level
at that time.


Site high water
                                 tide level

Morgans Point 850 am 2.3 feet
                                1113 PM 2.4 feet

Eagle Point 1013 PM 2.7 feet

Galveston Bay entrance 556 PM 3.2 feet

Freeport 527 PM 3.0 feet

Port O Connor 1016 PM 2.0 feet

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
721 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014 


Aviation... 
not a lot of changes from previous thinking with at least MVFR 
ceilings overnight/early Thursday morning. However with surface (and just 
above the sfc) winds a bit more elevated tonight...fog develop- 
ment not as likely. Strong warm air advection could also allow for isolated/widely 
scattered -ra overnight as well. Did include the mention of vcsh for 
tomorrow afternoon (once again) for sites iah and south. 41

Previous discussion... /issued 336 PM CDT Wednesday Oct 1 2014/ 


Mostly isolated showers and thunderstorms this afternoon with 
better coverage just to the east of the area. 12z 500mb map 
analyzed this morning revealed a shortwave over The Rockies which 
will continue to push to the southeast and be the driving force 
for our next front. At 850mb temperatures have warmed around a 
degree or two from yesterday with a trough axis located through 
the Central Plains. 


Ahead of the front tomorrow we will warm up quickly as 850 
temperatures remain around 18c. Scattered streamer showers and 
thunderstorms will remain possible tomorrow thanks to above 
average precipitable waters  and broad divergence ahead of the trough axis. The 
cold front will then move through the area Friday morning and push 
off the coast Friday around 8/9 am. A line of showers and 
thunderstorms will form ahead of the front Thursday afternoon into 
the evening in North Texas and begin their March southwards. The 
general thinking is that the line will move southeast with the 
front and begin to weaken as it moves into southeast Texas. The 
high res Texas tech WRF supports this with the line starting to 
weaken as it passes College Station and becoming very weak and 
diffuse as it approaches Galveston. This makes sense given the 
main energy from the shortwave will be up in Oklahoma. At 250mb 
though we do fall into a weak rrq in both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) Friday 
morning. Precipitable waters  ahead of the front also approach 2.00" with the 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) keeping the line going through the area. Have 
slightly leaned towards the high res models but only minor changes 
made to probability of precipitation. Please stay tuned as we get closer to the event as 
small changes in upper level flow and cold front timing can have 
major changes on temperatures and precipitation. Storm Prediction Center day 2 outlook does 
clip our northern zones in a slight risk with the main threats 
being strong winds in association with the line. 


On Friday drier air will filter into the area and bring a return 
to more seasonal temperatures. The concern here will be along the 
coast and how quickly the drier and cooler air filters in. Either 
way looks like it will be warmer along the coast Friday. This 
weekend looks beautiful. Dewpoints will tumble into the lower 40s 
Saturday afternoon allowing for a day of low relative humidity and below normal 
high temperatures. Low temperatures Saturday and Sunday will also 
be much cooler. Both mornings the Mercury will likely fall into 
the 50s for almost all of the area except along the immediate 
coast. Surface high pressure in association with the cooler air 
will start to pull east Sunday allowing the warm up to commence.
