Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
346 PM CST Mon Feb 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Areas of rain along with embedded showers and an occasional thunderstorm
or two continue moving northward across much of Southeast Texas this
afternoon as the mid/upper level trof axis slowly edges eastward across
the state. Have continued the eastward trend of the rain chances overnight
and on through early tomorrow morning, but clouds/fog could linger/develop
partly due to the wet grounds and light winds. Any fog that does develop
will burn off in the morning, and then a cold front will move through
the area during the day with winds shifting to the northwest behind
the boundary. Any lingering clouds across parts of our northeast and
east counties in association with the back side of today`s storm system
should move east of here by late tomorrow night or early Wednesday
morning. It will be on the warm side once again on Wednesday and Thursday
as south winds eventually work their way back into the area and strengthen
under a tightening pressure gradient. High temperatures both days will
be unseasonably warm with readings in the upper 70s to lower 80s (around
10 to 15 degrees above normal). The area`s next cold front on Friday
should be on the dry side, and it will be followed by a couple of cool
and dry days over the weekend.  42

.MARINE...

Scattered showers through the evening hours should taper off tonight
and will keep the SCEC up through 7 pm for the far waters for the
elevated winds and seas now that will be diminishing. Cold front
moves through tomorrow morning/afternoon and will swing winds to the
west and northwest and may briefly flirt with SCEC conditions again
over the outer coastal waters.

Elevated tide levels returning to near normal Tuesday afternoon.
