NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
1121 am CST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Discussion... 
see aviation for 18z taf issuance. 


&& 


Aviation... 
main concern this issuance will be gusty north winds persisting 
through the afternoon hours. Organized precipitation has pushed 
east of the terminals this morning and clearing line is nearing 
cll. Expect gradual improvement in ceilings through the afternoon from 
the northwest with strong north winds continuing. All sites 
should be VFR by evening with mostly clear conditions and 
northeasterly winds around 10kts persisting through the day on 
Saturday. 38 


&& 


Previous discussion... /issued issued by National Weather Service Lake Charles la/ 


Update... 
winds remaining below Wind Advisory criteria over the northeast 
sections of the area...however winds still up over the reminder of 
the area. Pressure gradient tight enough and therefore have 
extended the Wind Advisory to 21z or 3 PM for the existing Wind 
Advisory with the exception of Madison and Grimes which will expire 
at noon. 


There have Ben isolated thunder in the early morning activity... 
however...convection has calmed down and moved off to the east. Expect 
rain to continue to dissipate. Temperatures continue to fall into 
the low to middle 30s north to the upper 30s to near 40 south. Luckily... 
for the most part precipitation has moved out of the cooler areas 
so do not expect to see any winter convection with this system 
unlike out partners to the east and northeast of US. 


Will send out updated zone forecast as soon as possible. 


Previous discussion... /issued 439 am CST Thursday Mar 5 2015/ 


Discussion... 
basically two Post-frontal bands of precipitation moving east 
across the region during the pre-dawn hours...one larger swath of 
light to moderate rain with isolated elevated thunder across the 
southeastern County Warning Area and a lighter rain swath over the north central 
County Warning Area. Generally...6 hourly rainfall has been a half an inch or 
under with localized amounts approaching three quarters of an inch 
across downtown Houston. As of now...just liquid precipitation as 
surface temperatures across the far northern County Warning Area have remained a 
couple of degrees above freezing. The gracious tamu 06z sounding 
was indicative of a sleet sounding with a ~3,000 feet sub-freezing 
layer below a deep warm layer. As we near sunrise...believe that 
any remaining light precipitation that falls north of a Brenham to 
Huntsville to Livingston line will be mixed with sleet or maybe 
with some light snow. With the coldest air moving in latter this 
morning...these counties could experience localized short-lived 
light sleet or snow. Due to the precedent warm conditions...no 
accumulations of sleet/snow are anticipated with only minor slick 
spots making for nuisance traveling conditions. The bulk of the 
precipitation will be significantly waning just as the low-middle 
layer coldest air arrives...so it all may be a mute point. A 
speed maximum exiting northeastern Mexico and traveling parallel to 
the Texas coastline this morning will be well northeast of the 
state by 18z...with the rrq region of the jet pulling away as 
well...so forecast is for greatly diminishing west-to-east rain 
chances over the next 8 hours. 


The north winds behind last night's boundary have been powerful... 
western and coastal counties including the local bays and Gulf 
have regularly reported sustained 30g40 knots readings over the last 
few hours. Needless to say...but the ongoing Wind Advisory and 
Gale Warning will be in effect through noon and 3 PM CST... 
respectively. This robust offshore flow will drive water levels 
down in the local bays so caution should be exercised for boaters 
in the local tributaries/bayous/bays with respect to grounding. 
The cold air advection...along with these north winds that will 
stay up to around 20 kts for a good part of the day will produce 
wind chills in the upper teens to middle 20s. Thus...make sure to 
dress in layers if outside in these wintry conditions for any 
mentionable length of time. A frigid northern Texas air mass 
filtering into the County Warning Area through the afternoon will have today's 
temperatures varying by only a degree or two...little to no 
warming has many far interior communities stuck in the 30s (and 
overnight 20s) over the next 24 hours. 


A large near 1040 mb surface high will settle into eastern Texas 
early Friday and weaken winds...clearing skies will have the northern 
County Warning Area falling to below freezing for approximate 12-14 hours. The 
freezing line will near the coast and more southern counties will 
experience sub-freezing temperatures for about 6-8 hours. It would 
be wise to make the necessary preparations today to protect your 3 
p's...people...pets and plants. 


Light winds remain east through early next week...thickening 
cloudiness with subsequent day(time) warming from friday's upper 
40s/low 50s to monday's upper 50s/low 60s. A broad and somewhat 
shallow lower western Continental U.S. Trough will place the region within 
the warm sector by Sunday. Southwesterly disturbances will pass 
over the western Gulf through the first half of next week...keeping 
the southern third forecast area/maritime Sunday and monday's probability of precipitation in the 
moderate to high category. Despite a possible late Sunday reinforcing 
backdoor cold front that will keep northeasterlies in place through 
middle-week ... temperatures will warm back up into the 
70s by Wednesday. Chilly overnight lows in the upper 40s/low 50s 
per a NE flow pattern that will fortify a relatively drier resident 
air mass. 31 


Marine... 
gale force winds in the wake of last nights cold front will persist 
into the afternoon hours. These strong offshore winds will cause 
the transport of some water out of the bays and cause tide levels 
to run 1 to 2 feet below normal...especially northern portions of 
the bays. Gale warnings & low water advisories will remain in 
effect today. Speeds will gradually diminish overnight & Friday and 
veer to the NE over the weekend. 


Aviation... 
precipitation should taper off in metropolitan/coastal areas toward 15z...cll/uts 
earlier. Ceilings will gradually lift through the day and into VFR territory 
between 19-21z and should be sky clear by sunset. Main issue today will 
be strong north winds with gusts >30kt. Speed should very slowly 
diminish in the late afternoon hours and lose their gustiness after 
sunset. 47
