Aviation... 
precipitation lasted a bit longer than expected but is in the 
process of dissipating. An isolated shower can not be ruled out at 
any time overnight as precipitable water values remain above 2.00 inches. Nam12 
and the GFS differ with precipitable water values on Friday with the NAM more 
aggressive with moisture. The rap has backed off significantly 
with morning precipitation and is now waiting on heating to trigger 
shra/tsra. Will lean toward a rap/hrrr/GFS blend which focuses 
much of the precipitation on Friday over the SW half of the County Warning Area. Will carry 
vcsh for klbx...ksgr...khou and kgls. Dry air will filter into 
the area from the NE late Friday afternoon and will end precipitation from NE 
to SW toward evening. Numerous outflow boundaries and a weak 
pressure gradient makes fcsting wind direction difficult. 43

Previous discussion... /issued 912 PM CDT Thursday Jul 30 2015/ 


Discussion... 
showers and thunderstorms still drifting down into NE zones at 
this hour. Another important feature...radar showing outflow from 
Louisiana convection moving in from the east. This outflow to 
bring some gusty east and northeast winds shortly to Galveston Bay 
and eastern coastal Gulf waters. Wind gusts were as high as 40 
knots over coastal Louisiana...likely 30 knots or so for some 
areas now. Have issued a marine weather statement to give a heads 
up for this feature and adjusted wind grids as well. 


Overnight...expect a continued slow weakening trend in shower and 
thunderstorm activity over land...but cant rule out an isolated 
shower or thunderstorm anywhere given the airmass categorized by 
deeper moisture. For coastal areas will likely see squall line 
brush at least outer waters...but outflow will move from NE to SW 
along the coast with some additional development possible. Have 
bumped up probability of precipitation for coastal waters to cover this. High resolution 
rapid refresh supports this scenario. 46 


Previous discussion... /issued 304 PM CDT Thursday Jul 30 2015/ 


Discussion... 


Scattered convection is occurring across northern and eastern areas this 
afternoon. This activity is moving southwest...so central areas 
will likely see scattered convection as well later this afternoon and 
evening. Northern and eastern areas are moist and unstable...so 
isolated strong storms are possible. Maximum temperatures are around 100 
across far inland areas...upper 90s central areas...and lower to 
middle 90s coast. Heat indices remain in the 100 to 107 degree range 
this afternoon. 


The frontal boundary is near the Red River and in SW Arkansas. This 
boundary will move southwest into NE portions of southeast Texas late 
tonight/early Friday morning. Behind the boundary we will see a 
drier airmass advect into the region. The location of boundary will 
determine where the best rain chances are tomorrow. South of the 
boundary expect scattered convection again where precipitable water values are just 
over 2 inches. Will taper probability of precipitation upward from the NE to SW areas of 
southeast Texas....based on the precipitable water gradient expectations 
on Friday. By Sat morning the deep moisture will be offshore and SW 
of southeast Texas...so rain chances will be very small again from Sat 
through mid-week. 


Not much change expected in maximum temperatures...some variations the next 
couple of days due to differences in layer moisture levels. Far 
inland areas on Sat could see widespread temperatures over 100 due to the 
very dry airmass that will be in place. 


Marine...a weak backdoor front north of the area will effect the 
coast late Thursday into Friday. However...the winds associated 
with the front should be light enough to be influenced by the sea 
breeze on Friday through the weekend. 


An offshore flow during the early morning hours will relax and 
become onshore during peak heating in the afternoon before becoming 
southwesterly in the evening. Rain chances will be on the increase 
tonight and Friday as pool of moisture over la and Gulf slides 
westward into the Upper Texas coastal waters. 


Forecast models build the high pressure ridge back over the coastal 
waters late in the weekend and early next week. 44
