Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
144 PM CDT Sat Aug 27 2016

.AVIATION...
Isolated showers developing mainly outside of the area terminals
though a bit closer to CXO. Large mass of storms can be seen over
LA rotating around the upper low off the coast and crossing north
of the surface boundary. As daytime heating increases slightly
this afternoon expect scattered storms to develop this afternoon
probably peaking around 21-23z. A second area of storms will
probably develop and spread east through the southern area
terminals this evening and by 06z should be dissipating if not
dissipated. These storms may be relatively slow moving and capable
of heavy rains and significant reductions to visibility. Additional
redevelopment over the Gulf waters spreading inland after 09z
focused mainly near GLS around 12z and inland after 12z.

UPDATE...
The previous forecast is mostly on track. Precip chances will
remain slightly lower for Saturday morning moving into the
afternoon, but increasing as the evening hours begin to roll in.
The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will be mostly
overnight. Along the coast, there will be a better potential for
showers and thunderstorms that can bring in heavier rain. Skies
will remain cloudy, keeping our high temperatures in the upper 80s
across our CWA.

8/25

MARINE...
Winds near 10-15 knots near the coast and especially southeast of
Galveston where gradient may reach to around 15 knots today.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms should expand back over the
area from the east late this morning and through the evening hours.
