Synopsis for high island to the matagorda ship channel out 60 nm including galveston and matagorda bays
a broad area of low pressure over the southwestern gulf of mexico will bring unsettled weather to the gulf waters through much of this week. Look for increasing winds, seas, and water levels across the upper texas coastal waters over the next few days. Small craft advisory conditions are expected to begin today and last through much of the week. The chance of gale force winds, at least in gusts, is increasing for the Tuesday to Wednesday time frame. Mariners should closely Monitor the forecasts.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 702 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Tuesday Night)
Issued at 216 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

We continue to closely monitor the development of a tropical disturbance in the Western Gulf of Mexico, which will be the main driver of a prolonged period of rainfall that will impact SE TX over the next several days. As of the writing of this discussion, the National Hurricane Center is assessing the system for a potential designation as a depression and/or tropical storm.
Regardless of this designation, however, we anticipate impacts from both excessive rainfall and coastal flooding across portions of the area, particularly between Tuesday night and Wednesday. A Flash Flood Watch has been issues for portions of the area, taking effect at 7 PM tomorrow and remaining in effect through late Wednesday night.

Synoptic conditions leading into this event will be highly conducive for periods of heavy rainfall, which at this time will likely be concentrated roughly along and south of the I-10 corridor. Global deterministic models continue to depict the west/northwestward progress of the aforementioned surface low, which, over the course of the next 48 hours, will push into the Coastal Bend region to our SW. Given the presence of the low, as well as a robust surface high over the NE CONUS and a developing lee cyclone in the Central Plains, a strong onshore-oriented pressure gradient will allow for a deep plume of Gulf moisture to push onshore. Global models show abundant moisture availability by tomorrow, with total PW values reaching as high as 2.75 inches by the evening. With the approach of the disturbance and associated strong midlevel PVA, we expect scattered showers and storms to become widespread by Tuesday afternoon, with the potential heavier bands of rainfall to develop later in the day.
Locally heavy rain may lead to flash flooding in the locations where the heaviest bands of rainfall develop, with the highest potential concentrated around the Matagorda Bay region.
Additionally, this prolonged period of rainfall will pose a hydrologic concern, with rises along area creeks, streams, rivers, and bayous potentially leading to additional instances of flooding. Initial rainfall totals through Tuesday evening may reach as high as 3-4 inches along the immediate coast (see Long Term section for additional information on rainfall totals).

While winds do not post a primary concern with this system, the aforementioned gradient winds will produce some gusts in excess of 30 mph across portions of the area. This will lead to the onset of coastal flooding along the barrier islands, potentially impacting coastal roadways like Hwy 87. As such, a Coastal Flood Warning has been issued through Wednesday (see Marine Section Below).

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through next Sunday)
Issued at 216 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

The broad low over the West/Southwestern Gulf of Mexico, in conjunction with deep moisture, will bring thunderstorms and heavy rainfall to SE Texas through mid week. WPC has a Moderate (level 3/4) to Slight (level 2/4) Risk of excessive rainfall across portions of SE Texas on Wednesday. The swath of heavier precipitation should shifts further west on Wednesday, with areas south of I-10 most at risk for heavy rains and flooding (denoted by the Moderate Risk area). This includes the Houston Metro area, with urban locations such as these already prone to flooding due to poor drainage. These areas could see rainfall totals reach 5-8 inches through early Thursday, with isolated higher amounts possible. Areas to the north will generally receive 2-4 inches during this same period. A Flood Watch will remain in effect across portions of SE Texas until 1 AM Thursday. This rainfall will likely result in rises in rivers, streams, creeks and bayous. The main swath of heavy rainfall may vary greatly depending on the path of the aforementioned low pressure system. Keep a close eye on the forecast and make sure to have multiple ways of receiving warnings.

Additionally, near Tropical Storm force winds and a long fetch over the Gulf will result in minor to moderate coastal flooding across the Texas coastline through early Thursday. Tide levels will rise by an additional 3 to 4 feet, with coastal locations from High Island to Freeport seeing the greatest impacts from coastal flooding. These locations will be under a Coastal Flood Warning until Thursday, while areas near Matagorda bay will remain under a Coastal Flood Watch for that same time frame.
Numerous coastal roads may be flooded as a result. Low lying property including homes, businesses, and some critical infrastructure may be inundated in these coastal locations.

The heavy rainfall threat diminishes on Thursday as the aforementioned system tracks into Mexico and dissipates. Minor coastal flooding/inundation could linger until late Thursday evening. Lighter showers/storms continue daily into the weekend as an upper level low traverses through the Gulf of Mexico. Ridging aloft still tries to keep that next disturbance restricted to the Southern Gulf, and it's current impacts to SE Texas look minimal.

AVIATION
(00Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 650 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

Scattered showers are continuing a SE to NW movement across the area this evening. Expect activity to wane over the next few hours. VFR conditions expected overnight with MVFR CIGs developing in the morning through the afternoon hours Tuesday. Expect widespread rainfall as a Potential Tropical Cyclone 1 approaches the Texas coast. Along with these storms, gusty SE winds will impact the area tomorrow. Winds will approach 25-30 kts with higher gusts possible.

MARINE
Issued at 422 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

A potential Tropical Cyclone will bring numerous thunderstorms, strong winds and high seas across the southwestern Gulf of Mexico through early Thursday. Tropical Storm Watches and Small Craft Advisories are in effect. Winds of 20-30 knots with gusts up to 35-45 knots are expected through early Thursday. Tropical Storm Force winds are possible. Seas are expected to reach 10 to 15 feet at times. These strong onshore winds over a long fetch will also bring a high risk of rip currents. Tide levels rising by 3 to 4 feet will bring minor to moderate coastal flooding across the Texas coastline into late Thursday. Stay tuned over the next several days as we monitor this system. Conditions will begin to improve on Thursday as the aforementioned tropical disturbance dissipates over Mexico, with winds and seas falling below Small Craft criteria on Friday.

03

TROPICAL
Issued at 422 PM CDT Mon Jun 17 2024

A broad area of low pressure, now Potential Tropical Cyclone One, has developed over the Bay of Campeche. Recon aircraft has measured the strongest winds to be 30-35 knots, however, these strongest winds are well removed from the center of the storm, further northeast as models have suggested days prior. Even though this system is expected to track northwest into Mexico over the next few days, it's impacts will still be felt across portions of SE Texas. Heavy rainfall with totals of 5-8 inches expected with isolated higher amounts possible. Tide levels across the Texas coast should rise by an additional 3-4 feet, resulting in minor to moderate coastal flooding. Tropical Storm force winds will be possible across the nearshore waters from High island to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 60 NM, including Matagorda Bay.
Therefore, a Tropical Storm watch is in effect for these locations through Thursday morning.
