AVIATION[00Z TAF Issuance].

Compared to last night, CIGS are starting to lower a bit quicker. CLL could stay in VFR if 850mb winds stay more westerly, though the lack of cloud cover will allow for quicker cooling and potential for some mild fog. With CIGS lowering and MVFR/Borderline MVFR conditions already present as far north as CXO, IFR CIGS are looking much more likely. Guidance is also picking up on this trend as well, though it's a bit more aggressive on the low CIGS. Despite being more pessimistic, guidance does agree that CIGS will start to improve around 15z Wed, though LBX and GLS probably won't raise out of MVFR.

PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 320 PM CST Tue Dec 7 2021/

SHORT TERM [Tonight Through Wednesday Night] .

East-northeast winds near the coast and southeast/south winds over the west as ridging holds. Stationary front over the Gulf should mosey back north tonight as a weak wave develops along the boundary and then tracks east. Winds inland will be light and variable but as the low develops expect some upglide to help increase the lower clouds across the region tonight especially over the southeastern half. This poses an issue with the potential for shallow fog/patchy fog over the west where radiational fog may develop . if the clouds don't spread too far west/north. Temperatures will be on the cool side again after that last warm spell with mid 40s north to upper 50s to near 60 coast . ironically these coastal temperatures are still above normal. Mostly cloudy/cloudy skies will scatter out during the mid to late morning hours over a large portion of the area only to start to see thick clouds return to the coastal areas as warm front starts approaching the coast late afternoon and overnight. The afternoon temperatures should climb to the 70-Warmer 77 degree range with more sun. Overnight into Thursday widespread cloud cover and after midnight Thursday morning will be introducing some low end light rain chances to the southern areas near the warm front as the upper speed max passes by well to the north with southwesterly flow aloft.

45

LONG TERM [Thursday Through Tuesday] .

Thursday and Friday are still on track to be unseasonably warm as onshore flow strengthens and increases WAA across Southeast Texas. Some isolated coastal showers are possible on Thursday and Friday, but won't cool down temperatures as much. Meanwhile a low pressure system will strengthen across the Central Plains on Friday and push a cold front through our area by Saturday morning. Ahead of this frontal passage, rain chances increase on Friday for our eastern CWA with some prefrontal showers and thunderstorms. By late Friday night and into Saturday morning, the cold front will push through Southeast Texas as a thin line of showers and storms and reach the coast around sunrise. Both the GFS and ECMWF still show our northern counties in the right entrance region of a jet streak, which is favorable for the development of strong storms. Therefore, a few isolated strong to severe storms cannot be ruled out with the FROPA.

Behind the front, high pressure quickly fills in and enhances northerly flow and CAA, dropping temperatures drastically by the weekend. Saturday and Sunday's highs will be in the 60s with Sunday struggling to reach the low 60s. Overnight lows on Saturday will reach the upper 30s for areas north of Houston and near 40 for areas south of the metro. Our northernmost counties could even flirt with freezing temperatures Saturday night. By Sunday night, temperatures are a few degrees warmer with areas south of I-10 reaching the upper 40s and areas north of I-10 reaching near 40.

By Monday, high pressure slides east and onshore flow resumes, increasing temperatures and moisture once again. Highs will be back in the 70s by Monday and Tuesday. Rain chances slowly increase again with eastern counties seeing slight PoPs to account for some coastal showers.

MARINE .

Conditions continue to improve as winds and seas decrease are below Caution criteria. Light northeast winds will persist until late Wednesday night when onshore flow resumes ahead of an approaching cold front. As winds become SSE to SE early Thursday morning through Friday, a favorable fetch of higher dewpoint air moving over cool nearshore waters could potentially set up our bays and nearshore waters with patchy sea fog. By Friday, southerly winds will steadily increase to SCEC/SCA criteria as a cold front approaches. This front should reach our coastal waters by Saturday morning and bring with it a line of showers and thunderstorms. Winds quickly become northwesterly behind the frontal passage and increase to SCA sustained winds with gusts near gale force. Seas will build to at least 7 feet on Saturday. By Sunday, high pressure moves in overhead, helping to decrease winds and seas.
