Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 558 PM CST Sun Jan 16 2022

SHORT TERM [Through Monday]. Cool spectacular night on tap. Weak high pressure with light winds/calm will prevail overnight beneath clear skies. Temperatures falling into the 30s areawide inland. Extended the low water advisory through Monday afternoon.

AVIATION [00Z TAF Issuance]. VFR. CLR skies and L/V winds. 45

PREV DISCUSSION /Issued 400 PM CST Sun Jan 16 2022/.


LONG TERM [Tuesday Through Sunday].

Did not make a lot of changes with the long term portion of this forecast package as models remain in fairly decent agreement for the strong cold front on Weds . but model consensus also remains low with the timing/strength of subsequent happenings as we head into the weekend.

A warming temperature trends for both Tues and Weds (highs rang- ing in the 70s to near 80) will precede the strong cold front we are expecting to sweep south through SE TX on Weds afternoon and evening. Rain chances should be limited with frontal passage for the northern half of the CWA . with the better chances going to- wards the coast (where moisture is slightly deeper) but POPs are going to remain on the low side (20-30%). Temperatures will drop significantly once again by Weds night and stay below normal for the rest of the week.

In the wake of this first front and associated mid/upper trough, the flat almost zonal upper flow developing in its wake late Wed into Thur is then progged to begin tapping into disturbances em- bedded in the southern stream jet for the rest of the week (into the start of next weekend). This is where global models start to differ with respect to rain chances, potential for wintry precip. But will keep with the status quo in the grids as the colder air mass persists over the area as these passing disturbances may or may not produce SHRA (and/or other stuff) for Fri/Sat. 41

MARINE.

High pressure centered over northern Mexico/Deep South TX will continue to bring dry conditions and light northwest winds over our Gulf waters tonight. Winds will gradually shift to northeast-east and then south by Monday evening as the high pressure moves to our east. Moderate onshore flow resumes late Monday night into Tuesday with building seas (4-6ft) by late Tuesday. This pattern will continue until the next frontal passage that is expected to move over the coastal waters Wednesday night into Thursday. Strong offshore winds and elevated seas will be possible into the weekend.
