GMZ200 920 Am Cst Thu Dec 5 2019
Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. Patchy fog through this morning, mainly across the bays. Weak onshore flow today. Weak to moderate onshore flow tonight as an upper level disturbance moves across the southern plains. A frontal boundary will move across the waters Friday, and result in weak to moderate west to north flow. Patchy fog anticipated late tonight in advance of the front. This front will trigger isolated showers over the offshore coastal waters late tonight through early Friday. Moderate northerly winds Friday night will become weak from the south by Saturday night and continue through Sunday. Exercise caution conditions are expected ahead of the front on Monday. Monday night rain chances increase and will continue through the week. A small craft advisory will likely be needed Tuesday morning for strong offshore winds behind the front.

DISCUSSION.

Note Aviation Discussion below corresponding to the 12z TAFs.

AVIATION.

RGB Nighttime Microphysics product depicts the dense fog over the Coastal Plains early this morning, mainly east of State Road 16. This fog should dissipate during the 14-16z period. VFR conditions expected by late morning and will continue through the afternoon. MVFR/IFR ceilings are expected to develop this evening/early tonight, with a combination of IFR ceilings and visibilities during the 06-12z Friday period, in advance of a weak frontal boundary.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 350 AM CST Thu Dec 5 2019/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

Concur with the deterministic NAM/GFS/ECMWF that an upper level disturbance will move across the SRN Rockies today, then across the SRN Plains/NRN TX tonight/Friday. The bulk of the associated upper forcing is expected to remain north of the CWA. As the upper system moves east, the corresponding surface front is expected to move across the CWA tonight/Friday. The NAM deterministic predicts PWAT values near/slightly above normal today and in advance of the front. However, no significant precipitation is expected as the front moves across the CWA owing to the lack of CAPE (NAM deterministic.) With respect to fog, will retain the dense fog advisory for areas of dense fog this morning. Anticipate at least areas of fog tonight/early Friday in advance of the front given expectation of a favorable thermodynamic profile for such (near surface moisture/dry aloft), consistent with SREF visibility probability output.

LONG TERM (Friday night through Thursday) .

Zonal upper level flow and dry weather are expected over South Texas through Monday. Cold air advection behind the front will allow temperatures to fall to the 40s to low 50s on Friday night. Surface winds will shift to the south by Saturday night and moisture return will help temperatures to warm on Sunday with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s, which is about 5 to 10 degrees above normal.

Sunday into Monday an upper level trough will move down the west coast and across the Desert Southwest. Ahead of the trough, a cold front will move through on Monday night. Models are in good agreement with the timing of the front around 06Z Tuesday. Ahead of the front PWATs are around 1.5, which should be plenty of moisture for showers. How long this precip sticks around is the main question. The GFS has the southern piece of the upper level longwave trough being absorbed into the main trough on Tuesday. While the ECMWF no longer cuts off a low, it does take the southern piece of the trough over West Texas and South Texas Tuesday into Wednesday. This solution would have moisture linger, while the GFS dries things out quicker. For now have gone with the blends, with 20-30% PoPs for Tuesday night through Friday. Monday night's front will be much stronger than the one expected on Friday, with highs only reaching the low 60s on Wednesday. Strong offshore winds are expected behind the front on Tuesday with Small Craft Advisory conditions likely.

MARINE .

Patchy fog anticipated early this morning near the coast. Increasing onshore flow expected tonight as an upper system moves across the SRN Plains. A frontal boundary is expected to move across the waters Friday. Anticipate that isolated showers will develop over the Offshore Waters owing to moisture convergence along the front and limited CAPE. Patchy advection fog may occur over the bays/nearshore coastal waters tonight in advance of the front. Moderate northerly winds Friday night will become weak from the south by Saturday night and continue through Sunday. Exercise caution conditions are expected ahead of the front on Monday. Monday night rain chances increase and will continue through the week. A Small Craft Advisory will likely be needed Tuesday morning for strong offshore winds behind the front.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
