Summary: The day was warm, mostly cloudy, and dry. A few bands of light to moderate showers and possible thunderstorms made it over to east, central, and some parts of west Houston, TX, during the afternoon, evening, and night. I saw a few rain drops on my cars windshield in northwest Houston, TX, during the late afternoon. Some light drizzle was falling on my way from Pluckers in west Houston, TX to my house in northwest Houston, TX, during the late night. alto stratus and stratus clouds with stratocumulus clouds looked to cover most of the sky, during the morning, afternoon, evening, and night. The wind speeds looked to be calm with moderate to moderately strong gusts with some really strong gusts, during the morning, afternoon, evening, and night. It felt warm, during the morning, mid and late afternoon, evening, and night. It felt hot during the early afternoon. There was still a tropical storm warning issued for the Houston, TX area, along with a tropical weather statement. There also might have been some coastal flood advisories issued for the southern areas of Houston, TX. There were no other watches, warnings, advisories, weather statements, or alerts issued for the Houston, TX, that I know of. The low temps looked to be in the 70's and the high temps looked to be in the 80's, or maybe 90's, or at least maybe some 90's, for the Houston, TX area. I didn't hear about, or see any storm damages, or flooding from tropical storm Cindy, for the Houston, TX area. There were reports of storm surge at Galveston, TX beaches, but that is the only thing that I have heard about from tropical storm Cindy.
Locations: Northwest and west Houston, TX.
Thoughts: Not much going on with tropical storm Cindy, for the Houston, TX area, today. Just some minor strong winds and a few bands of rain. Maybe Houston, TX will see more from tropical storm Cindy tomorrow.

000 FXUS64 KHGX 220224 AFDHGX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 924 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017 .UPDATE... Changes: Will be issuing a Coastal Flood Advisory for Brazoria County through 15z Thursday. Tropical Storm Cindy getting closer to the Louisiana coast. This feature will make landfall early Thursday. 00z sounding data shows a very moist airmass at LCH with PW values near 2.50 inches (probably a bit contaminated by a shower). PW values at CRP are considerably drier with values under an inch. It appears that the dry air on the western edge of Cindy is prevailing as precipitation moving west continues to evaporate as it moves west. Have lowered rain chances over the western half of the CWA due to the dry air. Kept rain chances high over the east and added locally heavy rain to the weather grids over the extreme east as a cluster of strong storms over Western Louisiana pushes west. Tweaked min temps a degree or so mainly to match obs. PW values are progged to increase to over 2 inches on Thursday and daytime heating coupled with the higher moisture should yield scattered shra/tsra during the day. Very high sfc dew pts and warm afternoon temps on Friday will yield some high heat index values. Would not be surprised if a few locations reached or exceeded 105 degrees on Friday aftn. 43 && .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 634 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017/ AVIATION... Tropical Storm Cindy`s impacts are the main concern for the first 12 hours and especially so for the first 6 hours. Rain bands were evident on radar. Winds were gusting to 30 knots at KGLS and expect winds to gust to between 20 and 30 knots over the inland over the inland areas through 04Z. An exception is KCLL since the site appears to be too far west for the rain bands to reach. However, there is a slight chance the bands could reach KCLL. If so, gusty winds of about 25 knots will be possible there as well. MVFR conditions should develop later this evening over most of the sites. As Cindy moves inland on Thursday, do expect conditions of generally improve during the late morning to midday time period. However, bands of showers and thunderstorms will be possible again during the afternoon. 40 PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 323 PM CDT Wed Jun 21 2017/ DISCUSSION... Tropical Storm Cindy continues heading toward the TX/LA border area with a landfall still anticipated to happen tonight. Showers and thunderstorms have begun moving into the Chambers County-Galveston Bay-Bolivar Peninsula area. Breezy/gusty north to northeast winds this afternoon (generally running around 15 to 25 mph inland and 25 to 30 mph coast) will shift to the northwest and west overnight as the circulation center works its way onshore. Look for periods of showers and thunderstorms to move westward into the area overnight with the best chances and highest amounts possibly setting up across parts of our far eastern counties (Chambers/Liberty/San Jacinto/Polk). Rainfall totals tonight through Thursday should range from around/under 1/4 inch out west to 1 to 3 inches out east, and higher amounts are possible in/around those far eastern counties listed mentioned above where WPC is currently carrying a slight risk of excessive rainfall. Still looking for rain chances to persist for the end of the week, on into the weekend, and into the start of next week as precipitable water values remain very high under a persistent onshore flow while a weak frontal boundary sags southward into our area. 42 MARINE... Overview and winds: Still looking at tropical storm force winds to develop over the marine areas tonight. Around 2:50 PM, a platform just outside our marine zones at the East Breaks at 393 feet recorded a wind of 39 gust to 45 knots. Even though it is way above the surface, it does show the potential for tropical storm force wind gusts in showers and storms currently moving through the marine areas. No change in the warning/advisory configurations. Tides/seas: Tides have gradually been piling up against the islands and peninsulas on the lower sides of the bays. For example, Rollover Pass on the bayside of the Bolivar Peninsula has tides over 3 feet, while Pier 21 was between 3.9 and 4 feet since noon time. Even along the coast with the downside of the earlier high tide, tide levels at 2:48 PM were near 4 feet at the Galveston Bay Entrance and 3.4 feet at Freeport. Do expect some subsiding levels during the times of low tide later this evening. However, tide levels will rise back up to possibly reach levels seen earlier today as Cindy makes landfall. Have received reports of tidal flooding on portions of the Strand in Galveston -- on the bayside of the island. Seas at buoy 42035 and 42019 were 7 to 12 feet with a period of 10 to 11 seconds early this afternoon. Wave runup combined with the rough seas and high tides will continue to provide a flood potential most certainty in the areas under the tropical storm warning and could affect the Blue Water Highway further down the coast. Currently have a coastal flood advisory in effect for Brazoria County through 4:00 PM and will look to see if this needs to be extended. Have not had any indications of low water problems up in the Ship Channel yet. Manchester actually had water levels about 1.5 feet above the Mean Lower Water Levels. Will continue to monitor this possibility later tonight. Still a complicated scenario. As was discussed earlier, as Cindy moves inland, winds will gradually back to the west on Thursday then to the south Thursday night. Moderate onshore winds will then persist into the weekend. 40 && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
