NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
1002 am CDT Friday Jul 25 2014 


Update... 
pre-sunrise showers that developed on the land breeze over 
Chambers County and points offshore are beginning to wane and are 
forecast to die out through the 10 am hour. Upper ridging will be 
the main player today in inhibiting much in the way of afternoon 
showers and isolated storms. There is still a slight chance for 
the development of pop-up showers/storms most likely focused 
along outflow boundaries from yesterday's activity or along the 
evolving sea breeze boundary. Coastal cloud cover will likely 
influence the delayed onset of the breeze but...with lower 90f 
convective temperatures...widely scattered convection is not out 
of the question. Eastern Texas still falls on the relatively 
weaker southeasterly periphery of northwestern Texas-centered 
upper ridging. Thus...a quick shower passage or the rumble of 
thunder will exist for the southern half of the forecast area. 31

Discussion... 
see aviation for 12z taf discussion. 


Aviation... 
early morning convection that developed near Beaumont has spread 
westward this morning and is nearing Galveston. This activity 
should diminish by middle morning and VFR conditions are expected 
through the taf period for most sites. Bay/sea breeze likely to 
push inland to iah by late afternoon bringing a period of 
southeasterly winds. 38

Previous discussion... /issued 420 am CDT Friday Jul 25 2014/ 


Discussion... 
area radar are a little more quiet than 24 hours ago. Still a few 
showers off the la/Texas coast. Surface analysis shows some deeper 
moisture along the coast but not showing any boundary for low 
level convergence. Mainly calm winds and clear skies have allowed 
for some patchy fog and temperatures dropping into the middle 70s for most 
of southeast Texas. Upper air analysis shows 500mb ridge centered over north.M. 
Into Texas Panhandle and SW Kansas. A broad trough remains over much of 
the eastern U.S. With a shear axis training back along the north Gulf 
Coast. This feature is weakening as the ridge begins to expand 
this weekend. 


Today looks to be similar to the last couple of days with mainly 
afternoon thunderstorms that develop along any old outflow boundaries 
and sea breeze. Looking at water vapor imagery...do not see any 
weak shortwave troughs rotating around the ridge that may support 
thunderstorm activity today. Also NAM/GFS bufr soundings look a 
little more stable with NAM showing a bit of a cap developing. 
Think 20 probability of precipitation looks about right as there is still 1.8 to 2 inches 
of precipitation water based on 00z lch/crp soundings. Any storms that do 
form should be capable of brief heavy rainfall...gusty winds and 
lightning. 


Synoptic models are in pretty good agreement with expanding upper 
level ridge northwest from Texas into The Rockies. Look for the ridge to be 
strong enough to inhibit convection due to subsidence. Also look 
for maximum temperatures to be a couple degrees warmer than last few days but 
seems like there has been enough soil moisture to keep maximum temperatures 
from increasing too much. For the most part kept temperatures over the 
weekend into next week close to guidance numbers which seem to be 
doing quite well. 


Sun night into Monday strong shortwave moves through the Midwest 
into the mid-Atlantic. This keeps broad trough in place and 
supports a cold front pushing towards southeast Texas by Tuesday. Cold front 
slowly back doors into the area Tuesday/Wednesday with it being focus for 
convection. Front for the most part stalls northwest/southeast across the area 
by Wednesday with scattered thunderstorm activity. Added 30 probability of precipitation to the 
forecast Tuesday night through Thursday as there is the potential for a 
heavy rainfall event mover North Texas into East Texas. The European model (ecmwf) forecast is 
more robust with precipitation for the end of next week with a more 
potent shortwave rotating through North Texas into west la on Thursday. Overall 
upper level pattern holds onto northwest flow aloft so think the pattern 
sets up nicely for heavy rainfall. For good measure the GFS sets 
up a band of 2-2.2 inch precipitation water along the boundary which 
would support heavy rainfall as well. Temperatures were also 
decreased a bit for the end of the week with convection expected 
and the front pushing into the area. Temperatures could be very easily be 
2-4 degrees below normal ahead of the first week of August which 
is notorious for 100 degree days. 39

Marine... 
light to moderate south southwesterly flow will continue through 
the weekend. Winds will ease slightly early next week as a cold 
front moves into southeast Texas. 38
