Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
322 PM CDT Mon Jul 29 2019

.SHORT TERM[Tonight through Tuesday]...
Moisture has increased today over SE Texas from the Gulf to
support widely scattered showers and a few storms mainly along
I-10 this afternoon. Most of this activity should move north to
northeast very slowly with outflow boundaries likely triggering
new storms. Like the last couple of days, showers and storms
should come to an end with the loss of day time heating. Before
storms do dissipate, a quick burst of rain will be possible. This
means a quick 1 inch of rain in under an hour but it will be short
lived. Gusty winds and lightning will also be possible.

Tomorrow looks like another good chance of showers and
thunderstorms. Looking at upper level analysis and water vapor
imagery, there is an upper level trough axis located over the
Midwest and southern Plains. This trough should push to the east and
southeast tonight into Tuesday. This will lower 500mb heights some
along with higher moisture over the region. Forecast leaned a bit
more on the wet WRF-ARW and GFS for tomorrow. Both models have had
some consistency with more widespread storms. Quite possible to get
a lobe of vorticity in the flow to rotate down into the area
tomorrow afternoon to help support convection. Like the last couple
of days, storms should produce some brief heavy rainfall of 1-2
inches in an hour but that will be it. Some gusty downburst winds
will be possible with lightning in the storms but any wind gusts
should not be more than 30 knots.

AVIATION [18Z TAF Issuance]...
A few showers have formed west and southwest of KSGR to KLBX
embedded in an area of higher moisture. Temperatures are getting
up into the low 90s already so look for convection to become a bit
more widespread and form where there is stronger low level
convergence. TAFs feature VCTS for now until it becomes more
apparent where/when storms develop and how they evolve.

Tonight expect VFR ceilings for the most part but likely have a
band of MVFR ceilings develop from KCLL to KUTS in the morning
hours. There might be some IFR but will hit the MVFR ceilings for
now as that seems more likely.

Other issue for tomorrow will be convection. Some WRF runs show
more widespread activity like the GFS with others not being as
aggressive. Still time to figure out the details but again worth
watching trends in guidance for the next cycle or two of TAFs.

.LONG TERM[Wednesday night through Monday]...
Really not much to discuss in the long term as area will remain
under southeast quadrant of strong mid/upper level high centered
over the southern/central Rockies. This will keep weak n-nely
upper flow across the area and a general return to more summer-
like weather late this week and into the weekend. Main difference
between the operational GFS and ECMWF is with rain chances on
Thursday as Euro is much more aggressive while GFS is mainly dry.
Have split the difference and went with chance wording Thu
afternoon mostly along two tiers of counties nearest the Gulf.
Otherwise, will see drier weather for the most part settle over
the area to end the week and this weekend. We could still see a
few afternoon showers/tstms, although most areas will remain hot
and dry.

.MARINE...
A light to moderate S-SE flow will continue for the next several
days, along with scattered showers and thunderstorms as higher
moisture from the central Gulf moves into the region. After
midweek, expect winds will lessen although weak onshore flow is
expected through the weekend.

I’ve noticed the past couple days these storms are really taking off once they get north of 10. It’s mostly just been some light showers south of there.

Man I'm so jealous I've gotten only .31 inches of rain this month fingers crossed for some today.

Just a trace up in the Brazos Valley.

Hoping the August cold front becomes a reality.
