.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 654 PM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015/

AVIATION...VFR. WEST TO NORTHWESTERLY WINDS A LITTLE GUSTY BUT
THESE SHOULD DROP OFF ABRUPTLY IN THE FIRST HOUR OR TWO OF THE
TAF. WINDS DECOUPLE TONIGHT AND TURN AROUND TO THE EAST SATURDAY
MORNING...THEN ON AROUND TO THE SW BY 14-17Z AT OR LESS THAN 10

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 300 PM CDT FRI MAR 27 2015/

SKIES ARE SUNNY ACROSS ALL OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER TO MID 70S ALMOST AREA
WIDE. WITH A COUPLE MORE HOURS LEFT OF HEATING...SOME UPPER 70S
COULD BE REACHED. THE WEATHER PATTERN WILL REMAIN QUIET FOR THE
WEEKEND WITH COOL NIGHTS AND MILD/WARM DAYS AS SURFACE HIGH
PRESSURE MOVES OFF TO THE EAST AND AN ONSHORE FLOW RETURNS TO THE
AREA AND STRENGTHENS. A GRADUAL INCREASE IN CLOUD COVER CAN BE
EXPECTED. BY TUESDAY...THE COMBINATION OF DEEPENING MOISTURE
LEVELS AND A MID/UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE HEADING THIS WAY FROM THE
WEST WILL BRING RAIN BACK INTO OUR FORECAST. MODELS ARE INDICATING
THE BEST RAIN CHANCES COMING SOME TIME BETWEEN TUESDAY EVENING AND
WEDNESDAY EVENING...BUT THEY ARE DIFFERING A BIT ONCE AGAIN ON THE
STRENGTH/TIMING/LOCATION OF THE SYSTEM. WE ARE STILL CARRYING
CHANCE POPS FOR THIS EVENT...BUT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF WE
EVENTUALLY NEED TO CARRY SOME HIGHER NUMBERS WHEN MODELS COME INTO
A BETTER AND MORE CONSISTENT AGREEMENT. IT LOOKS LIKE FOR MUCH OF
NEXT WEEK (AND OUTSIDE THE RAIN TIMES)...LOWS IN THE 60S AND HIGHS
IN THE 80S INLAND/70S AT THE COAST CAN BE EXPECTED. ENJOY THIS
WEEKEND`S MILD SPRING TEMPERATURES AND LOW HUMIDITIES WHILE THEY
LAST...BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT WILL BE HERE SOON. 42
