Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
257 PM CDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Discussion... 
at 2 PM...surface high pressure was located over the Ohio Valley 
and strong low pressure was located over the northern plains. The 
gradient between these two systems will keep moderate to 
occasionally strong winds in place this evening. It will also 
bring a slow increase in low level moisture. Surface winds will 
decouple after midnight but winds just off the surface will remain 
strong. As the temperatures cool overnight...feel the air will 
saturate and clouds will eventually form toward sunrise. Both the 
NAM and GFS hint at cloud cover for a brief window between 10-15z 
Sunday. The gradient will remain tight on Sunday and another 
breezy day is in store for the region. 850 temperatures warm a bit on 
Sunday and coupled with the warmer start to the day should allow 
temperatures to warm into the middle 80s. Any morning cloud cover will 
erode as drier air aloft mixes toward the surface. Clouds return 
again Sunday night and will linger Monday as a weak disturbance 
moves across southeast Texas. Forecast soundings show a Stout cap in place on 
Monday but also show a saturated layer beneath the cap. Can't rule 
out some weak showers on Monday...especially over the northwest half 
closer to the disturbance. Tuesday still looks too dry with precipitable water 
values only reaching 1.10 inches. Capping looks weaker but the 
meager moisture levels and very dry layer above 850 mb should 
limit coverage and will only carry 20 probability of precipitation for now. 


Another short wave will approach southeast Texas on Tuesday night and 
Wednesday. Models diverge a bit on timing and intensity of this 
system. The Canadian and European model (ecmwf) are similar with timing and quantitative precipitation forecast 
output while the GFS is faster...drier and overall just more 
benign. The European model (ecmwf) has much better jet dynamics with southeast Texas lying in 
a lfq while the GFS places southeast Texas in a subsident region of the jet. 
Precipitable water values also differ with the GFS precipitable water values at 1.3o inches while 
the European model (ecmwf) shows values reaching 1.60 inches. The European model (ecmwf) soundings 
also show a saturated profile from the surface to 500 mb while the 
GFS does not. Have leaned toward the ec since the Canadian now 
supports the European model (ecmwf) and the ec has been very consistent over the 
last 3-4 days. Bumped probability of precipitation to likely for Wednesday. 


The flow aloft on Thursday/Friday will be west-SW becoming more SW with time. 
This type of flow usually keeps things cloudy with scattered rain showers as 
weak upper level disturbances traverse the area. Yet forecast soundings 
show a cap in place and meager precipitable waters . Have kept probability of precipitation out of the 
grids for Thursday/Friday but the flow aloft would suggest that maybe 
lowish probability of precipitation are needed. Another cold front will cross southeast Texas next 
Saturday. The front will bring a chance of showers and cooler 
temperatures. 43

Marine... 
the onshore pressure gradient between eastern U.S. High pressure and 
western Texas troughing will maintain a light...to occasionally 
moderate...southerly wind pattern over the next several days. The 
extended duration of generally 10-15 knots onshore winds will increase 
further offshore seas by another couple of feet through early 
Monday. The gradient should be tight enough over the far western 
offshore waters to mention a decent chance for a short fuse caution 
late Sunday night into early Monday. Increasing showers and storm 
chances late Tuesday through Wednesday as a shortwave disturbance 
passes east across the maritime. 31
