NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
424 am CDT Thursday Sep 3 2015 


Discussion... 
while there is quite a bit of development on the radar this morning- 
ing...almost all of this activity has remained offshore thus far. 
However will be expecting coverage to increase across southeast Texas through 
the rest of the morning and into the afternoon hours. The pesky upper 
low that has been responsible for this latest wet period appears 
to be hanging on over the western Gulf but is still expected to fill 
in/weaken the next couple of days. In its wake...the upper ridge 
building in from the west will be taking hold. However there are 
still some differences of note with models for this weekend. GFS 
keeping with much lower probability of precipitation than the European model (ecmwf)/NAM solutions. Given 
the verification trends of late hard to argue against the wetter 
forecasts. As such will keep with the generally diurnal probability of precipitation already 
in the grids for the middle/extended range part of the forecast. As for 
the long-long range part of the forecast where last nights runs were 
suggesting the passage of a cold front next Friday...European model (ecmwf) now back- 
ing off a bit whereas the GFS looks to be buying in. Hmmm. 41 


&& 


Marine... 
scattered to numerous showers across the Upper Texas coastal waters 
this morning and should continue until around 9-10 am then shift 
inland. Precipitable water of 2" still draped over the Gulf waters and bays and 
should support continued development this morning. High pressure to 
the northeast will keep the south to southeasterly flow going for 
the coming week. Winds this morning were 10-15 knots but should be 
diminishing after sunrise so expect the 3 foot seas to slowly 
subside to 1 to 2 feet. Winds in general remain light with seas of 1 
to 2 feet through the weekend. Showers will likely return early each 
morning through the weekend as well but probably with decreasing 
coverage. 
45 


&& 


Aviation... 
VFR at most sites though some LIFR ceilings showing up at dwh-cxo and 
eastward expanding inland. Uts will likely be the next to drop. 
Will be close at iah with few already. Quick heating after sunrise 
today should keep these short lived. For now plan to continue to 
the vcsh wording in tafs and likely wait to see if they hold 
together as the showers work inland this morning overcoming the 
drier air inland.
