Aviation... 
the surface high pressure was situated over the Gulf at 6 PM and a 
southerly flow was in place across southeast Texas. The nam12 tries to 
re-establish the ridge into the coastal areas tonight...and the 
surface winds should become farily light. Clear skies overhead and 
a slightly higher surface moisture content will lead to the 
potential for at least patchy fog formation overnight tonight and 
Thursday morning. If the fog does form...it should be more 
prevalent over the more rural sites. After 15z...VFR conditions 
are expected.

Previous discussion... /issued 348 PM CST Wednesday Jan 28 2015/ 


Discussion... 
upper level ridging and surface high pressure centered over the 
southeastern Texas Gulf has made for a mostly clear day across 
the area with the exception of a few cirrus. Many areas across 
southeast Texas have made it into the upper 70s...and in a few 
areas into the low 80s. Fog will form overnight and have added patchy 
fog to the grids. Tomorrow's temperatures will a bit cooler due to 
more cloud cover associated with the next cold front that should 
move through the area Thursday afternoon and night. No quantitative precipitation forecast is 
expected with the front. The GFS is the fastest with bringing the 
front through southeast Texas and have leaned more towards a 
solution of the NAM/European model (ecmwf) due to a lack of strong upper level 
support. Behind the front...temperatures will fall 10-20 degrees with 
Friday morning lows in the 40s and highs in the middle to upper 
50s. 


On Saturday a transition from a westerly to southwesterly flow 
aloft occurs as the next upper level trough moves eastward. There 
may be a few isolated showers Saturday afternoon due to a short 
wave that will move into the area ahead of the upper level trough. 
GFS and NAM soundings do not show a particularly moist column 
during the day on Saturday. Still...an impulse of energy ahead of 
the main upper level system may be enough for a few very light 
showers. 


The next cold front will move through southeast Texas on 
Sunday afternoon and evening. Both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) agree on 
frontal timing...having it off the coast by Monday around 6z 
(midnight). Precipitation looks to mainly be along and behind the 
front...with precipitation tapering by late Sunday night into early 
Monday morning. Min temperatures behind the cold front for Monday and 
Tuesday could fall into the upper 30s for areas north of 
Interstate 10. 


A fairly unsettled pattern remains for the next work week due to 
an upper trough to the southwest of the area. A series of 
disturbances will form ahead of the trough and move into southeast 
Texas...giving a low to moderate chance of precipitation next week. 13 


Marine... 
NAM is still forming sea fog overnight with the sref also 
hinting at some sea fog. Water temperatures are in the upper 50s 
along the coast and dewpoints in the Gulf are currently only in the 
upper 50s. Due to this... confidence has lowered on the formation of 
sea fog. Timing of tomorrows front is still in some disagreement. 
The GFS pushes the front off the coast Thursday evening while the 
Euro is a tad slower. The NAM is even slower moving the front over 
the waters Friday morning. For now have leaned towards the Euro 
compromise which would allow winds over the waters to reach caution 
criteria Friday morning. Winds will then quickly veer to the 
northeast and keep an easterly component through Saturday. Some 
elevated tides are possible Saturday. Sunday evening another 
stronger front will move over the waters. Advisory conditions will 
be possible. 23
