GMZ300 Synopsis For High Island To The Matagorda Ship Channel Out 60 Nautical Miles Including Galveston And Matagorda Bays 925 Am Cst Sun Mar 7 2021
Synopsis for high island to matagorda ship channel out 60 nm.. High pressure over the ozarks will bring northeast to east winds to the coastal waters today. The high will drift east and winds will veer to the east and eventually southeast by Monday night. Low pressure will develop in the lee of the rockies early next week, resulting in an increase in southeast winds and building seas.

AVIATION [18Z TAF Issuance].

VFR conditions will continue through this TAF cycle. While E/SE winds have returned to the area today . still not expecting any appreciable increase with low-level moisture until tomorrow (or even tomorrow night). 41

PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 334 AM CST Sun Mar 7 2021/

DISCUSSION .

It wasn't quite quickly enough, but thoughts of winter will fade away this week. First, the weekend is cooler after last Friday's cold front, but only modestly so. And we now begin a warming trend that will bring low temps up into the 60s and highs up into the lower half of the 80s later this week. While some short spritzes may crop up here and there as moisture builds through the week, solid rain chances won't really show up on the scene until the end of the week.

SHORT TERM [Through Monday Night] .

With recent satellite imagery showing only a few areas of cirrus aloft, surface high pressure/upper ridging dominating the synoptic pattern and light east-northeasterly winds continuing to provide cooler and drier air to SE TX, Sunday is shaping up to be another pleasant day across the area. Cloud cover should remain minimal and afternoon highs once again look to reach the vicinity of 70 degrees at most locations. With conditions remaining largely cloud-free through the evening, nocturnal cooling will remain efficient and lows will dip into the upper 30s to 40s again overnight.

The beginnings of what will be an extended period of warmer and more humid weather will begin to take hold on Monday as the dominant surface high pushes further eastward towards the southeastern CONUS. As winds concurrently shift to the southeast and moisture transport/WAA increase, look for a modest increase in afternoon highs (low/mid 70s) and a slightly more substantial increase in surface dewpoints. With this pattern shift promoting the development of a broken/overcast deck overnight on Monday (combined with the aforementioned WAA), overnight lows will stay in the mid to upper 50s at most locations.

LONG TERM [Tuesday Through Sunday] .

The story of the long term will be the amplification of a stacked eastern US ridge and western US trough pattern, putting us underneath southwest flow aloft. Surface flow will be dominated by high pressure to the east, giving us persistent onshore flow through the week. As a result, we should expect the seasonable weekend temperatures to gradually drift further upwards through the 70s and into the 80s for highs by late week. Similarly, the increasing humidity from the low level moisture return will make for low temperatures increasing into the middle 60s. So, yes, late week low temps will be getting dangerously close to average high temperatures for this time of year. My sweet winter child, summer is coming.

As we move towards the weekend, the deep western trough will slowly begin to make its way east. The GFS has started to join the Euro in being not nearly as progressive with the main trough - not particularly a surprise given the amplitude of the upper pattern. As we discussed in the office a little earlier - when the waves get really long, they tend to not move so fast. So, while a surface low is still expected to spin up in the Plains and make its way northeast, the trailing cold front isn't likely to pose any threat of working into our forecast area. Again, perhaps unsurprisingly, the NBM deterministic numbers continue to be overcorrected. In chatting with the neighbors, we all thought it best to continue to shooting more towards the NBM median values, thanks to the persistent onshore flow and no front expected.

Eventually, the deep trough will drop off the Rockies and spin up a lee cyclone of its own. This should be powerful enough to push a front into our area. But, it's probably still too early to get real specific on timing with this. But, we should be thinking more late weekend/early next week rather than late this week/early this weekend. 25

FIRE WEATHER .

Another seasonable and dry day is expected. Look for temperatures to be around or a little below 70 degrees, with minimum RH falling below 30 percent for the large majority of the area. Winds will slowly become more onshore later today, which will keep humidity modestly higher at the coast. Mitigating the low humidity values inland will be relatively light winds, of 5-10 mph for most. Some gusts near the coast may push towards 15 mph as a weak, early season sea breeze sets up. Winds will continue to take on a greater onshore component into the new week, which will spur a trend to warmer and more humid conditions. 25
