736 FXUS64 KHGX 100157 AFDHGX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX 857 PM CDT Wed Aug 9 2017 .DISCUSSION... Today`s showers/thunderstorms have dissipated. The rest of the night should be rain free for much of the area except near/along the coast and offshore where some showers and/or thunderstorms could develop and edge inland before or shortly after sunrise. 42 && .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 707 PM CDT Wed Aug 9 2017/ AVIATION... VFR conditions expected to prevail throughout the period across all TAF sites. Winds should be light overnight mainly out of the north/northwest becoming variable in direction at times. There is the potential for lowered vis during the early morning hours, similar to what was seen last night. Currently have CXO and LBX lowering to 5SM, but IAH and SGR could also see slightly lower visibilities during the 10-12Z time frame. Although the forecast soundings and SREF guidance was also pegging SGR/IAH with slightly lower vis, not confident enough at this time to add this to the TAF. Late morning around 15Z along the coast and early afternoon 19Z further inland, expecting shower and thunderstorm development with largest coverage during peak heating hours. Based off the forecast soundings, PWs could range between 1.9-2.3 inches and winds could become gusty below stronger storms. Convection should diminish becoming more isolated by sunset tomorrow evening. Hathaway PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 331 PM CDT Wed Aug 9 2017/ DISCUSSION... Persistent low pressure center was ill-defined on late afternoon surface analysis, but satellite imagery indicates circulation remaining over e-central Tx. Scattered showers should remain focused nearer this feature across the northeastern counties, with secondary area along stalled surface front near and just inland of the central TX coast. Expect shower/tstm activity will diminish after sunset. All in all, ridging will become established and hold through the forecast cycle. Models continue to focus return of showers/tstms tomorrow associated with sea breeze as sely low level flow becomes established and deep moisture aids in destabilization. Have kept general 30-40 PoPs in place for all but the far north to account for this potential. Friday may once again bring scattered sea- breeze storms into play. However, rain chances will generally lower through the weekend. Large scale pattern suggest we could warm up quite a bit into the weekend/early next week under this ridge. However, moist ground will hold humidity fairly high and keep things quite muggy but perhaps hold temps from spiking. Regardless, return to more normal August weather looks to be in the forecast starting this weekend with forecast heat indicies in the 104-108f range and max temps in the mid 90s away from the immediate coast. Evans MARINE... Light offshore winds are continuing across the area this afternoon as the upper level disturbance lingers near the TX/LA border. This feature is still expected to weaken/dissipate tonight with onshore winds returning by tomorrow. This generally light to moderate S/SE flow should persist the next few days. Swells propagating into the coastal waters (per Franklin in the Bay of Campeche) and seas will increase to 4 to 7 feet offshore late tonight into Thursday. Small Craft Advisories may be needed across the offshore waters by early Thursday. Looking ahead...the next storm system is progged to move into Southern Plains during the latter part of the weekend. Streng- thening onshore winds will be possible at that time. 41 && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...
