This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Southeast Texas..

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms will move into eastern portions of
southeast Texas this evening. The primary threat from these
storms will be wind gusts between 25 and 45 mph. Another cluster
of storms will redevelop overnight around the Galveston Bay area.
Localized heavy rain is possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Showers and thunderstorms will increase in areal coverage
Wednesday morning and continue into the afternoon hours. One to
three inch accumulations are expected for most locations, but
localized 4 to 5 inch amounts are possible. At this time, it
appears the higher totals may be near Galveston Bay. Several
inches of rain in a short time period may cause street flooding
and a rise on smaller streams and bayous. Precipitation should
taper off in the late afternoon and evening hours.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed at this time.

Locations: Amarillo, Forth Worth, Dallas, Bryan, College Station, and Houston, TX.


Thoughts: The sky stayed sunny with big to small flat alto stratus clouds, through the early evening, before becoming covered with stratus and stratocumulus clouds, during the night. Most of Houston, TX got light to really heavy rain with lightning and thunder. I saw lightning and thunder at my house in northwest Houston, TX, during the night, but I don't think my house got any rain, maybe just a few drops. The rain dissipated before it could get to my house.

overnight. Should be precip free rest of the night and Saturday as
well. Did get at or above 108 degrees F for several sites in and
around metro houston late this afternoon for a few hours...and
will have to carefully evaluate heat indices for tomorrow to see
if a heat advisory may be needed. At the moment forecast is too
stay just below. In either case...whether we meet or stay just
below criteria...the main weather feature for the next several

06Z Aviation...Still seeing widespread cirrus clouds moving west
to east across SE TX. A few patches of low clouds near the coast,
but not any extending inland yet. Expect some areas of MVFR and
possibly IFR ceilings to form toward morning, but not as confident
as earlier on the extent of the coverage based on the latest
guidance. So I have opted for a TEMPO MVFR ceilings at many inland
TAF sites. Some patchy MVFR fog areas are possible as well toward
morning...but the thick cirrus should keep the fog patchy. 33

Made a few slight adjustments to grids with this update taking
precip chances out for the night based on radar trends and loss of
daytime heating. Remains extremely humid with dewpts in the mid
to upper 70s. Wouldnt be suprised some patchy fog in spots but
higher clouds an inhibiting factor. Models show ridging and drying
tomorrow so any shower and thunderstorm activity should be much
more limited. Kept 20 percent pops in for Friday afternoon with
max heating for possibility of isolated convection. 18

00Z Aviation...A quiet radar this evening with just a couple
showers located south of CLL. The main concern for the next 24
hrs is the formation of low clouds in the MVFR/IFR range in the 8Z
to 14Z window. Have opted to include a ceiling of 1000 feet at
most inland TAF sites by 10Z based on model guidance and given the
abundant low-level moisture that is present. Could also see
patchy MVFR fog late tonight/early tomorrow as well. 33

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 643 PM CDT Mon Jun 11 2018/

AVIATION [00Z TAF Issuance]...

Storms over central Texas have dissipated so we will likely see
VFR conditions going into the overnight. Like last night there
will be a mix of MVFR/VFR decks beginning 07-09Z mainly for
KCLL/KUTS/KCXO and perhaps KIAH/KSGR. KLBX may also have some
higher MVFR ceilings but could be more transient. Upper level
short wave trough over the area now should weaken and combine with
a broader trough over the Gulf. Overall think this will limit the
chances for convection with large scale lift decreasing and
moisture looks to decrease as well with PWAT dropping to below 1.5
inches by tomorrow evening. There still may be some 20 knot wind
gusts tomorrow afternoon but likely just fair weather cumulus.

Overpeck

PREV DISCUSSION /Issued 340 PM CDT Mon Jun 11 2018/...

DISCUSSION...
Status quo through mid week with all eyes on the extended forecast
this weekend. Whatever evolves out of the Caribbean sea looks to
bring increased moisture and rain chances to the region into early
next week.

NEAR TERM [Through Tonight]...
Convection is struggling to maintain itself over the Piney Woods,
likely owing to the presence of a capping inversion located between
800-750 MB on aircraft soundings out of Houston. Afternoon visible
satellite does show some enhancement in altocumulus over Central
Texas, likely enhanced by a compact shortwave trough drifting
towards the ArkLaTex. Will need to keep an eye on this activity
heading into the evening hours as high resolution guidance is
attempting to bring at least decaying remnants of this activity
into the Brazos Valley as it appears to be forced at a level above
the capping inversion and should be unaffected by the cap. Cannot
rule out a quick shot of rain for a few lucky folks through early
evening as a result, but dry conditions will be the rule for most
this evening.

Isentropic upglide will again produce periods of low stratus
overnight across the region, helping to keep overnight lows in the
mid 70s to lower 80s. Despite lighter southerly surface winds
tonight, near surface winds in the 15-20 knot range should provide
enough mechanical mixing to mitigate against light fog outside of
sheltered or low-lying areas.

SHORT TERM [Tuesday Through Wednesday Night]...
More of the same Tuesday into Thursday with warm and humid
conditions holding each day, with a slight chance of afternoon
showers/thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Mostly sunny skies
will once again bring sufficient mixing to support generally 10-15
mph onshore winds which will help the afternoon heat somewhat.

LONG TERM [Thursday Through Monday]...
As a plume of tropical moisture overspreads the region, chances
for some much needed rain will increase late this week and
increase further into early next week. Much of this depends on
the evolution of tropical wave being monitored by NHC for possible
development over the next 5 days as it moves across the Caribbean
and into the southern Gulf of Mexico. Currently NHC has a low
probability (20% chance) of a distinct surface low
forming/closing-off, although models show more agreement in
influx of deep moisture and increasing rain chances over se TX,
specifically Sunday into Monday. Clouds and rain chances will
lower temps a bit in the extended at least.

MARINE...
Persistent onshore flow will support maintaining exercise caution
wording for offshore waters with slightly elevated winds/seas
through daybreak tomorrow. We should see onshore winds gradually
diminish into the mid-week. In the later periods, mostly Friday
through the weekend, we could see conditions gradually worsen with
increased long-swell and rain/tstm chances. Details of these
conditions will depend on how anything develops in the
southern/western Gulf this weekend.

TROPICAL...
Not a whole lot to add here, although all eyes are monitoring the
disturbed area moving across the Caribbean sea early this week, as
highlighted by latest 5 day graphical outlook from NHC (20%
probability of development in next 5 days). Considerable
uncertainty remains at this time with this `system` given lack of
any real consensus of a closed low forming in the operational
models. However, more there is a more consistent signal bringing
a fetch of deep moisture and increase in offshore winds across
the western Gulf this weekend. Therefore, rainfall chances are
increasing Sunday into Monday- some of which could be heavy. The
details are too murky to have any confidence in specifics given
the extended range of these possible impacts, however.

.AVIATION...
Little change in the 06Z update. VFR conditions will continue
through the morning hours. CLL still stands the best chance of
some potential MVFR ceilings in the early morning. LBX, SGR, and
CXO also may see ceilings lower along with some patchy fog around
09Z once the wind speeds become more light and variable. Have
lowered CXO visibilities slightly based on low level moisture and
winds becoming light to calm in the early morning. Southeast
winds should turn out of the south in the afternoon and increase
to 7-11 kts. Based on short-term model guidance trends have also added
VCSH at the metro and coastal TAF sites beginning late morning

Radar imagery this evening shows the remaining showers fizzling
out over southeast Texas. VFR conditions can be expected across
most of the terminals overnight and through the morning hours. CLL
still stands the best chance of some potential MVFR ceilings in
the early morning, similar to yesterday. LBX, SGR, and CXO also
may see ceilings lower along with some patchy fog around 09Z once
the wind speeds become more light and variable. Shortly after
sunrise, winds should turn from out of the southeast and by the
afternoon southerly winds should increase to 7-11 kts. Short term
guidance hints at isolated SHRA development near some of the
Houston metro sites and further west over LBX and SGR tomorrow.
Have included VCSH at LBX, SGR, and IAH for now beginning late
morning and through the afternoon hours.
