onshore flow will diminish today in advance of a cold front expected to push off the coast early this evening. Some scattered pockets of sea fog may briefly develop later today before the front passes. Strong northwest and north winds, around gale force, and elevated seas are anticipated behind the front overnight into Sunday morning. Low water conditions are also anticipated in the bays late Saturday night and Sunday. Conditions should slowly improve late Sunday into Monday as high pressure moves overhead and then to the east. Heading into the early and middle parts of next week, a long fetch of moderate east winds set up across the gulf which will cause building seas and above normal tides.

SHORT TERM
(Today through Sunday Night)
Issued at 317 AM CST Sat Dec 9 2023

The cold front is set to arrive today, bringing cooler temperatures along with it. The front is expected to enter the Brazos Valley area around noon today, reaching the Houston Metro around 4-5p, and moving offshore around 7-8p. A lot of changes to the forecast have happened over the course of the last few days, particularly with the potential for severe weather. With the more favorable dynamics expected to develop further north and east of the CWA, SPC has downgraded the area to the general thunderstorm category.
Furthermore, hi-res models continue to trend lower with expected rainfall. The 06Z HRRR keeps the frontal boundary dry through most of the area with a line of showers and thunderstorms developing as the front approaches the coastal counties where more moisture convergence is present. Have maintained slight PoPs (20-30%) for much of the area through the afternoon hours, but with PWAT values below 1" for areas north of I-10 and west of I-45, and southwesterly flow at the 850mb layer, would be difficult for activity to initiate. Breezy northwesterly winds and CAA are expected behind the FROPA. Winds on the islands and for coastal counties west of I-45 may reach advisory levels, but will let the decision for an advisory be made with the afternoon package.

As far as temperatures are concerned, expect today to be rather muggy and warm ahead of the front. Highs will be in the 70s area wide. Cold air will funnel into the area tonight, bringing temperatures down into the 40s with some locations further north touching the upper 30s. Sunday will feature much cooler temperatures with highs in the 50s area wide. Winds will gradually weaken through the day. Sunday night will be much colder as lows drop into the 30s area wide. Current forecast minimum temperatures have a number of locations approaching or falling below freezing. If temperatures trend down in the coming forecasts, a Freeze Warning may need to be considered.

LONG TERM
(Monday through Friday)
Issued at 317 AM CST Sat Dec 9 2023

After a cool start to the morning Monday (30s), we should see temperatures begin to trend back closer to seasonal norms (40s/60s) for much of the week. A broad area of high pressure will take shape across much of the eastern half of the conus.
We'll generally be situated on its southern periphery with a mostly dry llvl easterly flow prevailing. Exception might be in the offshore areas where there could be some scattered showers from time-to-time toward midweek.

Forecast becomes somewhat tricky during the second part of the work week. We'll see the next upper trof dip into the Desert Southwest then eject northeastward into the Plains late Thurs and Friday. GFS is quite a bit deeper/further south with the base of the trof compared to the other global guidance. As such, it's depicting a surface coastal trof developing offshore along with its associated precip overspreading the area Wed night & Thurs.
Went with the blended guidance for POPs during this timeframe which are weighted on the drier side
One way or the other
rain chances will increase late in the week as the next cold front sags into the area...probably closer to Friday. 47

AVIATION
(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1107 PM CST Fri Dec 8 2023

MVFR conditions to due low ceilings will prevail overnight. There will be periods of VFR ceilings at/near the terminals; however, continued with a pessimistic forecast and kept BKN/OVC MVFR conditions through at least midday Saturday. A cold front will move through Southeast TX between 17Z Saturday - 00Z Sunday. This FROPA will bring a few showers along the boundary, but the main concern will be gusty winds behind its passage. Northwest winds will strengthen by late afternoon and evening with gusts from 25 to 30 knots possible. Highest gusts expected at KGLS terminal.

MARINE
Issued at 317 AM CST Sat Dec 9 2023

Onshore flow will diminish today in advance of a cold front expected to push off the coast early this evening. Some scattered pockets of sea fog may briefly develop later today before the front passes.
Strong northwest and north winds, around gale force, and elevated seas (7-13ft) are anticipated behind the front overnight into Sunday morning. Low water conditions are also anticipated in the bays late Saturday night and Sunday with PETSS guidance suggesting levels between -1 to -2 ft MLLW around times of low tide. For this fcst package we upgraded the gale watch to a warning and also put out a low water advsy.

Conditions should slowly improve late Sunday into Monday as high pressure moves overhead and then to the east. But, as we head into the early and middle parts of next week, a long fetch of moderate east winds set up across the Gulf which will cause building seas and above normal tides. 47
