Synopsis for high island to matagorda ship channel out 60 nm.. Onshore flow remains fairly strong early this morning, necessitating caution flags for some of this morning. These winds are expected to diminish as the morning goes on, however. This sets us up for a period of lighter winds and calmer seas through the upcoming weekend.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 401 AM CDT Thu Jul 2 2020

SHORT TERM [Through Friday].

The radar shows some (very) light echoes upstream on the western fringes of our area, and I spy in IR and lightning detection networks some solid thunderstorm signatures way, way to our west nearer the Rio Grande. Of course, with high pressure anchored not too far to our east, none of this is really our problem.

Instead, the focus for the next couple of days (and perhaps even a bit longer, but more on that in the long term section) will be heat. Even by July in SE Texas standards, things are looking pretty hot and humid, particularly this morning when a slew of record high min temps will be in danger for yet another day. With 500 heights only just a shade above 590 that does help keep things from getting too out of hand in the afternoon, but highs will still be on the warm side. Pair that with ample humidity, and maximum heat indices will peak out near the advisory threshold, generally around 105 degrees. The hottest heat index will likely come somewhere on the coastal plain - close enough to the Gulf to maximize humidity, but far enough away that the boundary layer doesn't mix quite as effectively.

As discussed last night, this puts us in a situation that is perhaps not a significant anomaly for the area, but just by the nature of where we are, could still be dangerously hot for folks that must spend significant stretches out in the sun and/or in locations that don't get a lot of air flow.

Beyond the heat, one thing we *may* need to keep an eye on for Friday is an upper trough in the Southeast US retrograding back towards Louisiana. If it moves west enough, quickly enough, we could see a little potential for rain try to sneak in to our eastern edge (Trinity, Polk, Liberty, Chambers counties) Friday afternoon I don't. think . that this will be an issue, but I do creep some slight chances for showers and thunderstorms in to account for that scenario.

LONG TERM [Friday Night Through Thursday].

High temperatures in the mid to upper 90s will continue through the start of next week. Some spots in Burleson County may even get into the triple digits without factoring in the heat index on Saturday and Sunday. Speaking of the heat index, values will remain in the 100 to 105 through next week. Temperatures may cool a few degrees for midweek, but high humidity will persist and you may not notice those few degrees.

The upper level trough mentioned in the short term discussion will remain over the central Gulf coast through most of next week bringing a chance of showers and thunderstorms pretty much every day in the long term period. With the upper trough located to the east, areas generally east of I-45 will have the highest chances of seeing precipitation. Though if the trough slides a bit further west, then pretty much our entire area would be fair game. Coverage of showers and thunderstorms will be higher during the daytime hours thanks to the sun heating us up. Guidance does finally bring high pressure back to the Gulf Coast by the end of next week decreasing the chance of precipitation (but increasing temperatures again).

MARINE.

Winds over the waters are just high enough to continue the need for a SCEC early this morning, but expect that the typical slight weakening of winds in the daytime should allow that to drop off in not too long. From there, expectations are for the usual summertime regime of onshore winds that are closer to 10 knots during the day, and closer to 15 knots at night for the next several days. Some stronger winds may crop up at some point next week, but it's too early to try and pin down specifics on that just yet.

With the onshore flow continuing, look for tides to continue above their astronomical values, but that difference will be smaller as the winds look to be a little weaker. This is a good thing, as astronomical cycles will be bringing normal tides up, keeping the actual expected values of high tide in the general vicinity of 2.5 feet above MLLW.

CLIMATE.

July started a lot like how June ended, with record high minimums being set. The City of Galveston again tied the record high minimum temperature of 84 degrees last set in 2005. The City of Houston broke its record high minimum of 80 degrees set in 1983 with a low of 82 degrees. Houston-Hobby also broke its record high minimum of 80 degrees (set in 1992) with a low of 81 degrees. Record high minimum temperatures will again be possible tonight.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
