Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 349 AM CST Mon Jan 27 2020

SHORT TERM [Through Tuesday]. Areas of dense fog will burn off by mid-late morning . evolving to mostly sunny skies and pleasant conditions this afternoon. Temps will top out around 70. Expect another round of fog developing later this evening across the southern half of the region. SREF currently indicates better chances of the lower vsbys centered generally along the I-10 corridor.

Next weather system will make its way thru the area late tonight and Tuesday. A surface low is forecast to develop near the Tx Panhandle later today in advance of the upper trof and track ese along the Red River Tue. Expecting a band of showers and a few embedded tstms to develop ahead of its southward extending frontal boundary overnight. The precip should be on the doorstep of the College Station area around, or shortly before, sunrise then generally move west to east across the remainder of southeast Texas during the day and exiting the CWA by early evening. Gusty w/nw winds can be expected in its wake. 47

LONG TERM [Tuesday Night Through Monday]. Clearing, cool and breezy conditions Tuesday night into Wednesday behind the departing wx system and associated cold front. Cloudiness and rain chances will return to the region Thursday afternoon into Friday as the next upper trof digs southward into Mexico. A series of impulses embedded in the sw flow ahead of the trof should begin moving across the area during that time period. Deeper moisture levels will reside offshore and taper off the further inland one goes, so am not anticipating much in the way of significant rain totals. Looks like a potent shortwave will dive down the backside of the trof and into the area Friday night or Saturday morning. It appears it'll be moisture starved by that time. A dry weekend looks to be in store with a nw flow in place aloft on Saturday & transition to a warmer sw flow on Sunday. 47

MARINE. Patchy fog will prevail across the bays/nearshore waters early this morning before mixing out by this afternoon. Fog chances may not be as good tonight/early Tues given the strengthening onshore flow and increasing rain chances. But that being said, some brief patchy sea fog may be possible in/around the bays/intercoastal waterways given the warm/moist air moving in from the Gulf. These conditions should be transitioning to a more stormy one by Tues afternoon/evening for the marine areas with the passage of a strong upper level storm sy- stem and its associated cold front. Presently, this boundary should be pushing into the coastal waters (from the NW) Tues night between 9PM - 3AM. Strong/gusty north and northwest winds developing in the wake of front will likely prompt Small Craft Advisories for all the marine zones for most of Weds. A quick turnaround with winds are on tap by Weds night as the next storm system begins to develop to the west and things re-set for it. 41

AVIATION [12Z TAF Issuance]. Foggy/messy TAFS expected for the start of this package as the very favorable radiational fog conditions persist. CIGS/VIS should be on the uptick by mid/late morning as things mix out. VFR conditions to prevail by the afternoon. Fog may not be as prevalent tonight given the increased onshore winds, but will likely include a mention (3SM to 6SM for some sites) through Tues morning. 41

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
