Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 1154 PM CDT Fri May 29 2020

AVIATION [06Z TAF Issuance]. VFR conditions across the flying area with only marginal impacts due to some showers and thunderstorms. Seabreaze formation will be the driving influence of the precipitation tomorrow as the upper level low begins to slowly move west tomorrow morning. This will increase the moisture flux in the area increasing the chances of precipitation in the afternoon as the ridge moves east into LA.

Kamman/45

PREV DISCUSSION /Issued 708 PM CDT Fri May 29 2020/.

SHORT TERM [Rest of Today through Saturday].

Drier air mass has filtered into the northern portions of SE Texas this morning, dropping PWs to around 1.0 inch, but some moisture still remains to the south. An upper level weakness moving near the region, combined with diurnal heating, the available moisture, and outflow boundaries could result in shower and isolated thunderstorm development for areas across the southern half of SE Texas, including the coastal waters, this afternoon into evening. Overnight, light northerly winds expected with low temperatures in the mid to upper 60s areas north of I-10 and in the upper 60s to low 70s areas south of I-10.

High pressure ridge will build to our east Saturday and surface high pressure will remain over Central Texas region. This will help maintain dry conditions for the northern areas of the CWA. Across the southern portions however, PWs of up to around 1.7 inches remain, which could combine with diurnal heating and surface outflows to produce some isolated activity. HiRes Model and TTWRF indicate a few isolated showers and possible isolated thunderstorms over the SW quadrant of the CWA as well as parts of the adjacent waters, which is where the highest amounts of moisture persists. Therefore, added low PoPs (up to 20 percent) for these areas for late morning and afternoon Saturday. Elsewhere, mostly dry conditions with light to moderate northerly winds. High temperatures tomorrow afternoon expected to be in the upper 80s. 24

LONG TERM [Saturday Night Through Friday].

Deeper moisture levels and associated showers and thunderstorms that currently extend from the western Gulf waters to the Yucatan Peninsula area have some potential to creep into parts of our area (mainly in/around the Matagorda Bay area on Sunday and maybe a little further up the coast and inland as next week progresses when area winds come back around to the southeast and the sea breeze front becomes a little more active again). Will only carry 20%ish rain chances for now, and will adjust upward if needed when it becomes a little more clear when and where the best focus might end up. Main weather concern heading into next week will be the gradually increasing temperatures (especially the morning lows that will start out in the 60s/70s at the start of the week and end up in the 70s by the end of the week). While inland high temperatures will be mostly in the lower 90s, heat index values will probably end up in the upper 90s to around 100.

We will also be keeping an eye on how things evolve tropically in/around the southern Gulf of Mexico during the second half of the week. The hurricane season officially begins on Monday. 42

MARINE.

Offshore winds to continue today. During the weekend and into early next week, light to moderate winds will generally be easterly. A more established onshore wind flow will return mid week. Chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms continues through the end of the upcoming week. Seas will be 3 feet or less. Slightly higher winds and seas can be experienced in and around stronger showers and thunderstorms. 24

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
