Synopsis for high island to the matagorda ship channel out 60 nm including galveston and matagorda bays
tropical storm alberto continues to slowly approach the eastern coast of mexico, and is expected to make landfall late tonight and Thursday morning. A large wind field still exists and stretches into the upper texas coastal waters. With the exception of galveston bay, a tropical storm warning remains in effect over our coastal waters. Water levels are running 2 to 4 feet above normal and anticipate some coastal flooding until we pass the high tide cycle Thursday morning. Small craft should remain in port until weather conditions start improving later this week.

UPDATE
Issued at 726 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

A Tornado Watch is now in effect for Jackson and Matagorda counties until 7 AM Thursday. This watch also includes Matagorda Bay and the coastal waters from Freeport to the Matagorda Ship Channel out 20 NM. Increasing low level shear along the Texas Coastal bend from Tropical Storm Alberto will provide favorable conditions for the development of isolated Tornadoes and Waterspouts.

SHORT TERM
(This evening through Thursday Night)
Issued at 103 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Tropical Storm Alberto continues to bring hazardous conditions across the SE Texas coast this afternoon. Widespread showers are expected to continue into portions of Thursday, though rainfall rates thus far have been manageable. Still, there is a Slight (level 2/4) to Marginal (level 1/4) Risk of excessive rainfall in areas along and South of the I-10 corridor. Deep gulf moisture and high precipitation efficiency may still allow for any stronger storms to produce locally heavy rainfall and flash flooding. A FLood Watch remains in effect for areas South of the I-10 corridor until 1 AM Thursday.

While heavy rainfall doesn't appear to be a considerable threat, moderate coastal flooding is occuring right now across the Texas/Louisiana coastline. Numerous reports of innundation have been received spanning locations from High Island to the Matagorda Ship Channel. Many roadways have become impassable due to water and debris. Coastal Flood Warnings will remain in effect until 7 PM Thursday. Please avoid driving and or walking through flood waters whenever possible.

Tropical Storm Warnings remain in effect across the Gulf Waters, including corresponding coastal areas from Jackson County to Brazoria County. The wind field of Tropical Storm Alberto falls short of the remaining coastal zones, thus a Wind Advisory continues to be used in lieu for Galveston, Coastal Harris and Chambers counties for these strong winds.

Finally, storm spotters reported a waterspout near Jamaica Beach earlier today. SPC has portions of SE Texas under a Marginal (level 1/5) Risk of isolated Tornadoes/Waterspouts from Tropical Storm Alberto. Make sure to have multiple ways of receiving warnings, as we cannot rule out the possibility of additional brief spin-ups within this Tropical System.

Conditions should begin to improve Thursday Night into Friday as Tropical Storm Alberto Tracks Westward into Mexico, later dissipating.

LONG TERM
(Friday through next Tuesday)
Issued at 103 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Will remain unsettled through the long term period with a persistent moderate easterly flow and abundant deep moisture.
Alberto will be long gone but development of a new cyclone is a good bet in the Bay of Campeche by Friday or Saturday, similar to what we observed with Alberto. High pressure to the north will likely keep this next system from tracking N toward the area
once again keeping the center well S
tracking westward into Mexico. Unlike Alberto the pressure gradient and associated winds will not be quite as strong...and size of wind field around cyclone not quite as large so not looking at a carbon copy...but do expect breezy conditions with elevated seas and tides even in the extended range...just not quite as high as we are observing today
Will have daily rain changes
with higher chances southern zones
lesser rainfall northern
with drier conditions thanks to surface ridge and subsidence.

AVIATION
(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1211 AM CDT Thu Jun 20 2024

As expected, we have reached a lull in the shower activity and so far, only light isolated showers are currently moving over the southern and coastal portions of SE TX. This trend is expected to continue for the rest of the night into early morning hours. E winds have relax a bit inland but GLS/LBX will likely continue to see gusts between 20-35 kts. Winds are expected to pick up again around sunrise, mainly for sites IAH southward. Hi-Res models continue to indicate a few more rounds of showers and iso storms starting along the coastal areas during the mid to late morning timeframe, expanding northward across much of SE TX in the afternoon to evening hours. Will likely continue the issuance of AMDs and TEMPOs as the event unfolds moving into the local throughout the day.

Mostly MVFR to VFR conditions are expected, however, stronger showers could result in brief moments of IFR vis/cigs as well as stronger wind gusts. Small quick vortices and areas of llvl wind shear are also not out of the question.

MARINE
Issued at 103 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Hazardous marine conditions are expected to persist into Thursday as Tropical Storm Alberto continues to approach the coast of Eastern Mexico. Overnight and into tomorrow, tropical storm force winds are expected to continue across Matagorda Bay and the SE TX coastal waters. Winds of 25-35 knots with gusts of up to 50 knots are possible, along with seas of 10 to 17 feet. Across Galveston Bay, winds of 25 to 30 knots with gusts as high as 40 knots are possible.
As a result, a Small Craft Advisory remains in effect. Conditions will begin to gradually improve on Thursday as Alberto makes landfall in Mexico and pushes inland.

In addition to the hazardous marine conditions, this system is expected to continue to result in flooding along the SE TX coastline through tomorrow's high tide. Inundation of 2-4 ft (locally higher)
is expected to impact the immediate coast. Finally, the strong onshore winds associated with Alberto will produce strong rip currents through at least Friday morning.

TROPICAL
Issued at 103 PM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

As of 1 PM CDT, the center of what is now Tropical Storm Alberto was located approximately 295 miles south-southeast of Brownsville, or just over 400 miles southwest of Matagorda Bay.
Despite how far the center of circulation is from the SE TX coast, the unusually large swath of tropical storm-force winds extending from the system will continue to produce impacts across the area.
The primary concern overnight and into tomorrow morning's high tide will continue to be coastal flooding, where 2-4 ft (locally higher) of inundation are possible along the immediate coast.
Coastal flooding has already resulted in impacts to many of our coastal communities, including Galveston, Jamaica Beach, Surfside Beach, and Sargent. In addition to this, some brief heavy downpours may produce pockets of isolated flash flooding through the remainder of the afternoon and into the evening, with the highest risk for this across locations surrounding Matagorda Bay.
Tropical storm force winds will continue to remain a possibility along portions of the SE TX coast, in addition to our coastal waters (not including Galveston Bay). Gusts as high as 50-55 mph will remain a possibility at times. Finally, an isolated waterspout/tornado associated with advancing rainbands can't totally be ruled out...earlier today, we received visual confirmation of a waterspout just offshore of Jamaica Beach.

Conditions should begin to improve on Thursday afternoon as Alberto pushes inland along the Eastern Mexico coastline.
