Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 1135 PM CDT Fri Aug 14 2020

DISCUSSION.

AVIATION. VFR conditions are expected tonight. Cirrus associated with convection over the panhandle will move over the region later tonight or early Saturday and some mid level clouds developing over LA will also scoot west and affect area TAF sites. The cirrus might blunt low cloud development over the NW zones so will keep conds VFR. Winds will veer to the S-SW later tonight and back to the S-SE by Saturday aftn. 43

PREV DISCUSSION . /ISSUED 342 PM CDT Fri Aug 14 2020/

SHORT TERM [Today Through Sunday Night] .

Fairly certain that its going to be a hot weekend. Temperatures and heat indices high today and increase through the weekend. High temperatures over the next few days will be in the mid 90s along the coast and low to mid 100s in the northern counties. Heat indices will max out around 110 across the region. A heat advisory remains in effect through tomorrow night and more than likely will get extended out through Sunday night. Chances of precipitation remains low with the mid to upper layers staying drier with a northerly flow. Moisture remains in the lower levels which will still bring in some mist and lower stratus in the western and northern counties, otherwise mostly clear to partly cloudy skies through the weekend. 35

LONG TERM [Monday Through Thursday Night] .

An upper level disturbance that will be riding down the eastern periphery of the ridge is expected to move into southeast Texas sometime on Monday - as will a rare (although weak) mid August surface frontal boundary. The associated shower & tstm chances will increase, though there remain some slight differences in regards to timing/location/specifics between models at this point. But, expect that the boundary should be far enough offshore by mid day Tues that most locations will see noticeably drier conditions and temps all the way back down to near normal!

During the midweek time period we'll become situated on the backside of a trof axis stretching from the Great Lakes to La to well offshore Tx. We should be on the drier side of the axis and most will see fairly nice wx (for Aug) but can't totally rule out some very isolated activity closer to the coast.

As we head into later parts of the week, the southern portion of the trof axis appears that it'll begin retrograding back into the area as the western ridge shows signs of weakening while the Atlantic/Southeastern ridge builds into the eastern Gulf. This should eventually put us on the east (more moist) side of the axis and bring gradually increasing rain chances . but that's beyond the scope of this fcst package. 47

MARINE .

Not a lot of changes with the forecast through the weekend as weak high pressure over the E/NE Gulf helps to maintain generally light S/SW winds over our marine waters. Models are still hinting at the possibility of a weak cold front moving into SE TX late Sun . then into the coastal waters on Mon. This boundary is progged to linger in/along the coast through the start of the week before eventually washing out by mid week or so. Periods of isolated/scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible due to the proximity of the boundary across the bays/nearshore waters. A light SE flow will be setting up for the second half of the week. 41
