Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
701 PM CST Wed Feb 22 2017

.AVIATION...
No major issues are expected with the TAFS for the overnight
hours. Some locations (especially those closer to the coast)
could see patchy fog by sunrise given the slow return of low-
level moisture/light winds and clear skies. Increasing south
winds are expected tomorrow given the tightening gradient in
response to the next storm system moving off the Rockies and
deepening over the Southern Plains. 41

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 341 PM CST Wed Feb 22 2017/

Spring-like pattern will hold across southeast TX over the next
week, as mid/upper level pattern oscillates between zonal and
modest southwest flow. Relatively dry pattern in place will keep
afternoon highs well in the lower 80s through Friday, away from
the immediate coast, with overnight lows in the mid 50s to lower
60s. Next dry front will push through the area late on
Friday/early Sat morning and dip weekend temperatures back to near
normal. However, this cool-off will be short-lived with active
pattern in place and temps bouncing right back into the upper
70s/lower 80s for early next week ahead of a stronger weather
system approaching the area. Return flow off the gulf of Mexico
will increase rain chances beginning Monday, with better chances
likely with the next front on Wed.
