NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
545 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016 




Aviation... 
VFR. A little cirrus moving in from the SW. South-southwest winds should 
gradually relax tonight. Cold front in southeast OK and nearing ksps. 
Expect the front to March south tonight and reach cll around 
07-08z and iah 11z turning winds northerly and then getting 
stronger and gustier an few hours later with the sun coming up. 
Strong winds in the profile should mix down in the late morning 
through afternoon hours and sustained winds of 15-18kts with gusts 
25-30 will be likely.

Previous discussion... /issued 233 PM CST sun Feb 7 2016/ 


Discussion... 
surface high pressure remains over the western Gulf and a weak 
area of low pressure had developed east of Abilene along a slow 
moving cold front. High pressure over the intermountain west will 
move southeast and push the front across southeast Texas early Monday morning. 
Colder and much drier air will move into southeast Texas behind the front. 
Dry air aloft will likely mix to the surface and surface dew points could 
fall into the teens and relative humidity values will plummet to below 25 
percent. Northwest winds will also increase (nw winds at 925 mb of 30-40 
kts will mix to the surface) in the wake of the front and 
sustained speeds will approach Wind Advisory criteria...especially 
west of a Madisonville to Houston to Freeport line. The 
combination of strong northwest winds and low relative humidity values will set the 
stage for dangerous fire weather conditions late Monday morning 
through the late afternoon. Storm Prediction Center has outlooked all of southeast Texas in 
elevated fire weather conditions with the northwest corner of the 
area outlooked in critical conditions. More on this in the fire 
weather section. 


Conditions will remain cold and dry on Tuesday but winds should 
be lighter as high pressure settles over the state. High pressure 
will move east of the state by Wednesday afternoon and 
temperatures are expected to begin to moderate. 500 mb heights 
build and 850 mb temperatures warm and the second half of the work week 
looks to remain dry but trend warmer. Southeast Texas is kind of caught 
between the the strong upper ridge out west and deep upper trough 
over the eastern U.S. With the flow aloft over southeast Texas remaining 
highly amplified through Saturday. The flow aloft gets dampened 
briefly by a weak shortwave next weekend in which the flow becomes 
semi-zonal. The upper ridge will amplify once again late next 
weekend with a northwest flow aloft redeveloping. Overall...the 
weather pattern over the next 10 days looks dry with a gradual increase 
in temperatures. 43 


Marine... 
light...variable overnight breezes just ahead of an early Monday 
morning cold frontal passage. Northwest to north winds will 
significantly strengthen to advisory levels shortly after the front 
passes by...expect front to be off the coastline and across the 
offshore waters between the hours of 5 and 8 am. All Bay/Gulf water 
advisory conditions through the day...with a weakening of evening 
winds to caution over the bays. Caution/advisory level offshore 
winds will persist through Tuesday morning. High pressure expanding 
in over the waters from south Texas will veer offshore winds more 
west and then onshore Wednesday into Thursday. Lowering northern 
Texas pressures will tighten the onshore gradient enough to possibly 
create caution level S-SW winds late Thursday. A large high pressure 
cell over the Great Lakes region will ensure light southeasterlies 
lending to generally 2 to 4 foot sea heights. 31 




Fire weather... 
a very dry air mass behind monday's cold front will commence elevated 
fire weather conditions. Expect average afternoon relative humidity values in the lower 
20 percentile over the entire (non-coastal) forecast area. Northwest winds 
will be between 15 to 20 miles per hour with frequent gusts to 25 miles per hour. Given the well 
cured fuels across the region this will be the first time we have had these 
ingredients of available fuel/strong winds/low relative humidity come together in nearly two 
years. The last time we had a Fire Weather Watch over any part of the County Warning Area was 
may 4th 2014. There is a possibility that the first red flag warning in over two 
years will be issued before tomorrow morning...especially across the western 
corridor counties where winds will be strongest within an air mass that may 
fall to under 20 percent relative humidity. 31
