Winds will occasionally gust over 40 knots into the morning hours. Winds and seas will begin to slowly diminish this afternoon into Wednesday. As a coastal trough develops Wednesday night, winds and seas will again increase. Another reinforcing front will push off the coast on Thursday with offshore winds prevailing into the weekend.

Discussion
Short term (today through Wednesday)
Still seeing some returns of radar... Some of it may contain a mix
of sleet. However, depth of drier air continues to increase from
north-to-south and expect bulk of precip to be on a downward
trend and mostly offshore around or shortly after sunrise. Temps
should mostly be above freezing where it falls, and combined with
warm grounds, not expecting accumulations impacts in regards to
winter wx...

look for clouds to gradually scatter out today and winds to diminish
this afternoon. Though breezy, we are able to trim the wind advsy
out of most inland locations as sustained winds 25mph+ are not
anticipated there. Kept it going closer to the coast where that
remains an issue.

Abnormally cold temperatures today should quickly drop after sunset
with dewpoints in the teens and light winds in place. Freeze
warnings have been issued from liberty county to wharton county
southward who should see their first freeze of the season.

(locations further north will also see a freeze but have already
seen their first - hence no freeze warning). However, we did issue a
hard freeze watch for locations north and east of the houston metro
area tonight. A hard freeze watch is issued when temperatures <24
degrees are a possibility for 2+ hours. A limiting factor for this
would be some high cloudiness, which depending on how thick, may
keep readings from falling that far. Will let the day shift take a
look at things and upgrade adjust areas to a warning if necessary.

Wednesday looks like a transition day as the mid upper low to our
west approaches. Look for increasing cloudiness to be moving in from
the southwest during the day. 47

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
A raw overcast, cold late Wednesday night into Thursday morning
under a weak variable wind field as southeastern texas will still
remain under the southwestern influence of mid-atlantic surface
high pressure. A resident cold air mass under overcast skies and
a late day weak cold frontal passage guarantees a Thursday
afternoon that will remain in the 40s... Briefly touching the
lower 50s. An upper level closed-off low moving out of
northeastern mexico will open up into a wave on its northeastern
trek into the western gulf of mexico during the day Thursday. The
surface reflection of this low will be an offshore inverted trough
that is forecast to move near parallel along the texas coastline
through late Thursday evening. This system will tap into just
enough moisture (1.3 to 1.4 inch pwats) to be able to generate
light rain and showers. Thursday's precipitation will move up the
coastline with the highest rain probabilities and QPF being
centered around matagorda bay and points offshore. A fully
saturated, strong mid-level inversion prog profile ensures
overcast and more wet conditions... Primarily light rain or showers
but cannot rule out an offshore rumble of thunder from any
elevated maritime thunderstorm. The upper low becomes absorbed
within a larger scale eastern CONUS trough early Friday but not
before it pulls a weak cold front down from the north along its
western backside. This will reinforce an already cold air mass as
a north to south clearing line enhances nocturnal radiative
cooling and has early Friday temperatures falling to the middle
30s (north) to around 40 f across the coastal counties. Northern
high pressure building down into the region Friday will produce
sunny skies and a light north-northeast breeze. Daytime
temperatures will warm up into the upper 50s to lower 60s. Little
change in the synoptic pattern will have Saturday's weather
conditions closely mirroring Friday's.

Saturday's brief transitory upper ridging will quickly give way
to the passage of a deep upper trough on Sunday. So, while the
weekend starts out great, it will have a more cloudy close with
slight rain chances... Yet still pleasantly mild as daytime temps
warm into the upper 50s to lower 60s Sunday. The trough passage
will push in a cold front but there doesn't seem to be much
downstream overall column moisture to work with. Therefore, pops
for mainly showers will be on the low side to begin the week. Mid
to upper nw-n flow will stabilize the weather heading into the new
work week. Partially cloudy to mainly clear skies with no
precipitation in the extended forecast. Subsequent day warming
as morning near 50 mints warm nicely into the middle 60s (Monday)
to lower 70s (Tuesday) just after the noon hour. Sunday's weak
northeast winds will slowly back to the north and west to
eventually south by Tuesday afternoon. 31

Marine
Strong north winds and elevated seas will continue today. Slow
improvement is expected to begin this afternoon into Wednesday.

Gale warnings remain necessary this morning, but should be
allowed to be downgraded to small craft advisories, from north-to-
south, later in the day. Water is being pushed out of the bays,
with levels currently 1-1.7 ft below normal across northern parts
of galveston and matagorda bays. A low water advisory remains in
effect through the next low tide cycle this afternoon... But may
need to be extended. Vessel groundings are an increased risk in
these situations.

A coastal trough develops Wednesday night, and winds and seas will
again increase. Another reinforcing front will push off the coast on
Thursday. Small craft advisories look to be a good bet Thursday into
Friday morning. Northeast winds should prevail going into the
weekend. 47

Aviation
MVFR ceilings will continue to lift as colder air deepens. Look for
vfr conditions areawide toward mid morning. North winds will remain
gusty into the early mid afternoon hours, but should be on a
downward trend through the day and relax this evening. 47
