NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
954 PM CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


Discussion... 
expect to see increasing clouds overnight as moisture levels increase 
with east to southeast winds. Just a couple very minor changes were 
made to the forecast package on the evening update (lowered coastal 
area temperatures a degree or two based on current observations). 42 
&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 656 PM CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015/ 


Discussion... 
00z aviation discussion below. 


Aviation... 
MVFR level clouds to evolve during the late evening and early 
Wednesday morning hours. Slight increase in low level moisture 
.Per the return of a more favorable and persistent onshore flow 
pattern. Anticipating the highest probability of areawide MVFR 
ceilings through the morning push hours...with daytime heating 
and a nearing southwestern shortwave disturbance increasing 
afternoon convection chances. Thickening cloud cover...a near 10 
knots southeasterly wind...and prob30s in place to comm a higher 
storm threat late Wednesday afternoon into early evening. 31 


Previous discussion... /issued 351 PM CDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015/ 


Discussion... 
the subtropical jet was oriented into a southwesterly pattern over 
southeast Texas this afternoon. High pressure over MS was 
extending a dry airmass into the central counties. A more humid 
airmass over south Texas was moving around the ridge as seen by 
the surface dew points into the middle 60s at kpsx. Disturbances 
over North Texas and over south Texas riding along the upper level 
jet were generating isolated showers...affecting mainly locations 
around Matagorda Bay and over the northern third of the forecast 
area. Expect these will continue into the early evening. 


A series of shortwave troughs will affect southeast Texas over 
the next few days as an upper level trough of low pressure over 
Baja California California moves eastward and shears out over the plains. The first 
disturbance will affect the area tomorrow. Model sounding forecast 
cape values were approaching 4000 at kcll during the late 
afternoon...and for now will mention isolated severe storms in 
the north. Thursday does not look as unstable with a downstream 
ridge building overhead. A decent cap around 850 mb may win out... 
however another disturbance moving overhead may help develop 
isolated showers and thunderstorms at least Thursday afternoon. 


The best rain chances for the week arrive on Friday when the main 
upper low pressure trough shears out over the plains. A surface 
boundary also looks to set up over the central part of the state 
during the day...with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) both moving the front into 
southeast Texas Friday night. At least good chances for showers and 
thunderstorms will occur ahead of the front. Will need to keep an 
eye on the chances for severe weather on Friday afternoon and 
evening. 


The GFS and European model (ecmwf) then differ on specifics over the weekend and 
into early next week. However...both keep a more active southern 
stream of the jet overhead the forecast area. Will keep slight 
chances for rain in place through Tuesday. 


Marine... 
winds in the process of veering back to the southeast and should remain 
around 15kt through the evening hours before slightly diminishing. 
Light to moderate onshore flow and 2-4 feet seas should then persist 
through the weekend. A weak cold front will cross the coast sometime 
next Monday. 47
