NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
502 am CDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Discussion... 
dense fog advisory out shortly past sunrise this morning to 
account for radiative fog formation since midnight. Southern 
tier County dense fog primarily west of I-45 and south of I-10 
has lowered visibilities to a 1/4 mile or less. Once the fog 
breaks...the forecast is for another warm and partially cloudy 
day. A more modest southerly wind day that will keep humidities 
on the up and up...making this afternoon feel a bit more of what 
we're used to around here in late April...warm and a touch more 
muggy. 


Higher lower level humidity will be more realized in the overnight 
hours with the return of dense radiative fog. The threat for Thursday 
morning fog will be minimized by a stronger onshore wind as lowering 
pressures across the Panhandle keep the onshore gradient just tight 
enough in generating a 5 to 10 miles per hour overnight wind. This surface 
breeze...and a modeled 95h 25-30 knots off-the-surface wind field... 
should preclude fog this time tomorrow. The threat for dense fog 
returns Friday morning as middle-low level winds weaken. Resident 
relatively high dew point air in the middle to upper 60s Thursday 
night/Friday morning will a weakened wind field from a passing Southern 
Plains shortwave trough will set the scene for a more favorable 
environment for fog redevelopment. This passing shortwave will 
increase the threat for scattered showers and maybe an isolated 
discrete thunderstorm cell or two brushing the north-northeast 
County Warning Area Thursday afternoon into evening. Storm Prediction Center has day 2 outlooked in 
general to communicate this slight storm threat. General mention 
as any disturbance rotating around the shortwave trough will be 
doing so within a very warm and humid (un-capped) late day air 
mass. 


The ensemble is still modeling the evolution of an intermountain 
west 500 mb trough whose axis will be entering the Western Plains on 
Sunday. Surface low forming over the valley and moving northeast 
along a potential pre-frontal boundary leading a main cold front 
moving across northern Texas late Sunday night. All dependent 
upon the southern extent/sharpness of 500 mb trough axis as to 
whether region will experience late Sunday into early-middle Monday 
active weather. Increased probability of precipitation to chance during that time period 
as recent runs are in consistent agreement of introducing more 
widespread rain and possible isolated thunderstorm activity. 31 


&& 


Aviation... 
patchy fog...some dense...continues to develop across portions of 
the region this morning. Expect transitions to VFR territory going 
into the middle morning hours. Repeat tonight with low clouds & 
patchy fog. Visbys might be kept in check by slightly higher winds 
but still anticipate some MVFR/IFR ceilings. 47 


&& 


Marine... 
light to occasional moderate onshore flow will persist for the 
rest of the work week. Speeds & seas will increase this weekend as 
the pressure gradient tightens. Will probably need caution/advsy 
flags by Sat night. 47
