AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
307 PM CST TUE JAN 27 2015

.DISCUSSION...
WHAT A NICE LATE JANUARY DAY ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS. AFTERNOON HIGH
TEMPERATURES SO FAR ACROSS THE AREA ARE IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S WHICH
ARE SOME 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. GALVESTON`S RECORD HIGH TODAY
OF 75 DEGREES SET IN 1882 HAS BEEN TIED AS OF 153 PM. LIGHT SOUTH TO
SOUTHEAST WINDS TONIGHT MIGHT SUPPORT SOME PATCHY FOG DEVELOPMENT
ESPECIALLY ALONG AND SOUTH OF THE INTERSTATE 10 AREA...AND WE COULD
SEE A REPEAT OF THIS AGAIN TOMORROW NIGHT AND ON INTO THURSDAY MORNING
BEFORE THE AREA`S NEXT COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH ON THURSDAY NIGHT.
UNTIL THE FRONT GETS HERE...EXPECT A CONTINUATION OF COOL NIGHTS AND
MILD/WARM AFTERNOONS UNDER LITTLE CLOUD COVER. COOLER TEMPERATURES
THAT BEGIN ON FRIDAY AFTER THE FRONTAL PASSAGE WILL PERSIST THROUGHOUT
THE WEEKEND...AND ALONG WITH THE COOLER WEATHER WILL COME INCREASING
CHANCES FOR RAIN ESPECIALLY FROM SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNDAY
MORNING AS A SERIES OF MID/UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCES EJECT OUT OF A
BAJA AREA LOW EASTWARD ACROSS THE STATE. EXPECT ANOTHER STRONGER COLD
FRONT ON SUNDAY TO DRY OUT THE AREA. THE WEATHER FOR THE FIRST PART
OF NEXT WEEK WILL PROBABLY END UP DEPENDING ON WHEN/WHERE THE BAJA
AREA LOW MOVES ACROSS THE STATE AND HOW STRONG IT ENDS UP.  42
&&

.MARINE...
NOT A LOT OF ISSUES WITH THE MARINE FCST FOR THE SHORT TERM WITH THE
RETURN OF ONSHORE WINDS TONIGHT THRU THURS. HOWEVER WE MAY BE FLIRT-
ING WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF PATCHY FOG TONIGHT INTO WEDS MORNING BUT
THE BETTER CHCS SHOULD BE WEDS NIGHT/THURS MORNING. OTHERWISE MODELS
ARE STILL INDICATING A WEAK COLD FRONT FOR FRI WITH (GENERALLY BRIEF
SCEC) OFFSHORE WINDS IN ITS WAKE. A SECOND STRONGER COLD FRONT LOOKS
TO HIT THE COASTAL WATERS SUN. 41

AVIATION...
NOT A LOT OF CHANGES WITH THE 18Z TAFS WITH MOSTLY VFR CONDITIONS
PREVAILING. HOWEVER AS DEWPTS SLOWLY CLIMB INTO THE LOWER/MID 50S
WILL HAVE TO BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR PATCHY FOG DURING THE EARLY AM
HOURS AROUND SUNRISE WEDS. 41
