Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 642 AM CDT Tue Aug 4 2020

AVIATION.

VFR. Morning mid levels clouds should be replace with some high levels clouds moving into the area from the north. Continue to carry VCTS for possible SHRA/TSRA development this afternoon. Most activity should dissipate early this evening. 42

PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 350 AM CDT Tue Aug 4 2020/

SHORT TERM [Today through Wednesday] .

A weak east to southeast moving shortwave (evident on water vapor satellite imagery) is moving into Southeast Texas early this morning. Some high resolution models have been insisting on possible isolated shower development before or shortly after sunrise, maybe associated with the interaction of the shortwave and some leftover boundaries from yesterday evening's activity. Will continue to monitor. Still looking like the day's best shower and thunderstorm chances will come beginning in the mid to late afternoon hours when the low to mid 90s convective temperatures are reached, and they will possible continue into the early evening hours. Might get some brief/strong wind gusts with stronger activity. Tonight through Wednesday morning should stay on the quiet side, then look for the area's next chance of showers and thunderstorms coming mainly in the afternoon through early evening hours during peak heating time. Some activity could linger on into Wednesday night.

Peak heat index values for both today and tomorrow will mainly be in a 100-105 range. 42

LONG TERM [Wednesday Night through Tuesday] .

Expect typical summer-time weather through the long term period for Southeast Texas with max temperatures in the mid to upper 90s and lows in the mid to upper 70s. There will be lingering showers and thunderstorms across the eastern half of the area Wednesday night as a shortwave rounds the edge of the upper level ridge located over the Desert Southwest. The aforementioned upper level ridge will slowly move eastward and be centered over Texas by Friday. As it does so, it becomes less amplified across CONUS and more zonal flow takes over through the end of the long term period. Precipitation chances through the rest of the period will be from the typical isolated showers and thunderstorms that form along the sea breeze each afternoon thanks to daytime heating pretty much every day.

MARINE .

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
