AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
958 PM CDT MON JUN 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
ALL IS QUIET WX-WISE TONIGHT. ANOTHER DRY DAY ON TAP FOR
TUE...ALTHOUGH WOULDN`T BE A COMPLETE SURPRISE TO SEE ONE OR TWO
CELLS POP UP ON SEABREEZE DURING LATE AFTN HOURS. 47

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 654 PM CDT MON JUN 1 2015/
AVIATION...
HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA WILL HELP TO KEEP WINDS
GENERALLY LIGHT AND VARIABLE TONIGHT INTO TOMORROW. VERY WEAK
SEABREEZE LOOKS TO MOVE THRU HOU/SGR SHORTLY BUT SE WINDS BEHIND
IT NOT EXPECTED TO PERSIST TOO LONG. OTHERWISE VFR. 41

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 323 PM CDT MON JUN 1 2015/
VIS SAT LOOP SHOWING SCT CU AS WELL AS SOME CIRRUS MOVING ACROSS
FROM NORTH TO SOUTH. A VERY PLEASANT AFTERNOON FOR THE 1ST DAY OF
JUNE WITH DW PTS IN THE LOWER TO MID 60S AND LIGHT WINDS.

THE DRY PATTERN WILL CONTINUE THIS WEEK AND THROUGH THE UPCOMING
WEEKEND. WE WILL SEE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE BEGIN TO INCREASE ON WED
AS WINDS BECOME SOUTHERLY...BUT NO SIGNIFICANT CHC OF RAIN AS A
MID/UPPER LEVEL RIDGE BUILDS OVER THE AREA FROM THE SW MID/LATE
WEEK. WE ARE LIKELY TO SEE ABOVE NORMAL MAX TEMPS BY LATE THIS
WEEK AND THIS WEEKEND AS THE BUILDING RIDGE IS OVERHEAD.

THE ECMWF/GFS BOTH SHOW THE RIDGE SHIFTING A LITTLE SOUTH AND
FLATTENING WITH A MORE ZONAL MID/UPPER LEVEL FLOW PATTERN EARLY
NEXT WEEK. THIS MAY ALLOW FOR THE RETURN OF RAIN CHCS AFTER THIS
FORECAST PD. 33
