000 FXUS64 KHGX 312312 AFDHGX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 612 PM CDT Thu Aug 31 2017 .AVIATION... VFR tonight and tomorrow. Light mainly north winds developing this evening and persisting overnight. Maybe some early morning MVFR fog developing at LBX and/or SGR, but think chances are too low to include in the TAF. Light mainly north winds persist into tomorrow afternoon when a possible southeast wind shift takes place. 42 && .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 401 PM CDT Thu Aug 31 2017/ DISCUSSION... The radar and satellite is clear across Southeast Texas today in the wake of the remnants of Harvey. In the western part of the area, cumulus cloud streets are already beginning to crop up again. With the clearer skies, GOES-16 imagery reveals many post- storm features including flooding across the area. Quiet weather will continue into the weekend, though a few showers and/or storms may crop up in the afternoon deeper into the weekend, fairly typical for this time of year. Next week, we`ll be looking for a trough of low pressure - being watched by NHC for potential development - to lift northward out of the Bay of Campeche towards Southeast Texas. At the same time, a trough will be pushing through the northern states, and a surface cold front will push towards our area. Details on strength and timing of these features will be extremely important in determining what, if any, impacts we see in our area. This trough looks to be pretty strong, and recent model trends are optimistic. But, it`s important to remember that we are in the peak of hurricane season and the situation will have to be monitored closely in the coming days. In the wake of the front, we should look for drier conditions on north to northeasterly winds late this week. With the lower dewpoints and colder airmass in place, temperatures are likely to be notably cooler than seasonal averages. MARINE... Winds and seas should remain light to moderate from the west tonight going into Thursday. For the rest of the week winds should be variable and turning easterly over the weekend. Seas should remain low but could increase late in the weekend and early next week as winds increase from the east. Overpeck TROPICAL... Two features of note exist in the tropics. Both deserve watching, but there are still no indications yet if there will be any impacts for Southeast Texas, so it`s simply appropriate to continue to monitor, and attempt to replenish emergency supplies after Harvey as practical. The first feature is an area of low pressure in the Bay of Campeche. This area has seen sporadic support for development from the models, but recent trends have been more against significant development. Also, given that the trough/front coming from the north seems rather strong, it would tend to imply that it would be intercepted and absorbed into the front well offshore, and shunted to the northeast away from us. That said, it is in a close location in the peak of hurricane season, and will move in our direction in the coming days. It should be monitored for the latest, as subtle changes in timing or strength of the low or the expected front could significantly change the scenario. The other feature is Irma, now a major hurricane over the east Atlantic. It`s been rapidly strengthening today, having started the day as a tropical storm. This storm is far away, at least 5 days from even the Lesser Antilles, much less the United States. The model envelope at this range, as one might expect, is quite wide. There are many possible scenarios, the large majority of which don`t involve Southeast Texas. With so much distance between us and this storm, this is also a feature in which monitoring its progress and ensuring plans and kits are in place are good actions to take. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
