NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston Texas 
1140 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016 


Aviation... 
issue for today will be the strong north wind...generally in the 
sustained 15-20kt...gust 25-30kt...range through sunset. Scattered 
cirrus to clear out enough to provide ample radiative cooling 
this evening. This will allow a low level inversion to develop 
through middle Tuesday morning. Today's strong northerlies should 
decouple to under 10 knots a few hours after sunset and remain 
this way until surface temperatures reach the middle 40s around 15-16z Tuesday.

.High fire danger today... 


Discussion... 
conditions remain very favorable for dangerous fire weather 
conditions today. Relative humidity values are already below 20 percent in 
several locations wind gusts are approaching 30 miles per hour. Ground 
fuels are fairly dry as well so will maintain the red flag 
warning for all of southeast Texas. Not sure sustained winds will reach 25 
miles per hour over the NE zones today but will maintain the Wind Advisory 
for consistency with neighbors. Not much of a warm up expected 
this afternoon with weak cold air advection and mixing from strong 
winds. 12z soundings support maximum temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 
60s and current forecast supports these values. Have tweaked sky grids 
to show more cirrus for this afternoon but other than that...the 
previous forecast is in good shape. Can't state this enough...if 
working with flammable material today...please be careful. 43

Previous discussion... /issued 423 am CST Monday Feb 8 2016/ 


Discussion... 
at 10z...surface analysis shows high pressure over the Texas Panhandle 
pushing into Texas with a cold front moving through southeast Texas. Winds 
have shifted to the northwest across the area and should increase later 
this morning as the pressure gradient increases. Surface dew points 
were already in the teens to low 20s across North Texas and north central Texas. 
This airmass should move into southeast Texas later today. Latest water 
vapor imagery and 500mb analysis show upper level pattern 
consistent with model guidances from the last couple of days. 
Namely a deep trough has formed over the Great Lakes with a trough 
axis rotating through Texas. Broad upper level ridge has formed 
over the Pacific coast with strong north/northwest flow aloft through the 
plains and Texas. 


In what should be a rather quiet weather week...the main concern 
will be impacts from critical fire weather conditions for today. 
As mentioned before there is already a dry airmass advecting into 
the area from North Texas. Dew points in the low 20s could end up being 
closer to 10f with deep mixing in the boundary layer. Forecast 
soundings show a mixed layer up from the surface to 850mb. Both 
the NAM/GFS show more than 40 knots of wind at 850mb which could 
mix down in the form of wind gusts. Wind at 925mb is a little less 
but still supportive of sustained winds near 20 miles per hour during the 
early afternoon with gusts near 30 miles per hour. A Wind Advisory for the 
area looks reasonable given these conditions. 


Maximum temperatures today are forecast to reach the upper 50s to low 60s. 
The challenge with the temperature forecast will be how much cold 
advection really occurs. Temperatures at 850mb drop from 3c-5c down to 0c 
to -2c by late afternoon. The challenge will be if cold advection 
is enough to offset day time heating and mixing. As such should 
low dew points be achieved with slightly higher maximum temperatures than 
forecast...relative humidity levels could drop below 15 percent 
for the afternoon. Right now 14 to 20 percent relative humidity is 
forecast. This combined with the gusty winds expected and 
cured/dry vegetation support the potential for rapid fire growth 
and a high fire danger. For this reason a red flag warning has 
been issued for today. This is the first red flag warning issued 
since January 21 2014. 


Overall there is not a lot of change in the forecast pattern for 
the week. Upper level trough remains over the eastern third of the 
U.S. While ridging over the Pacific coast becomes a bit more 
progressive and moves east into The Rockies by the weekend. Cold 
airmass the next couple of days should modify Wednesday/Thu/Fri as 
925-850mb flow becomes west/SW allowing boundary layer temperatures to 
increase. Warming is not as dramatic as in previous forecasts but 
still noticable jump in maximum temperatures into the 70s. Next cold front 
looks to push through Friday night into Saturday which will knock 
temperatures down a few degrees for the weekend. That said both GFS/European model (ecmwf) 
ensemble MOS numbers show quite a bit of variance and 5 degree 
Standard deviations so fairly low confidence in temperature 
forecast for the extended. 39 


&& 


Marine... a dry cold front moved off the coast this morning with 
north winds expected to quickly strengthen to advisory levels 
between 4 and 6 am. Advisory conditions will remain over the Bay and 
Gulf waters through this afternoon. However...winds will gradually 
weaken to caution levels over the bays. High pressure expanding over 
the waters from south Texas will loosen the surface pressure 
gradient and back offshore winds around to the west and northwest 
from late Wednesday into Thursday. A large ridge of high pressure 
over the Great Lakes region will ensure that a light onshore flow 
and 2 to 4 foot seas heights continue into the weekend. 44 


&& 


Fire weather... 
a very dry air mass behind this mornings cold front will generate 
elevated fire weather conditions. Average afternoon relative humidity values to 
fall to the middle-teens 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. A red flag 
warning is in effect from this morning through 7 PM tonight. 44
