AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX
1028 AM CDT SAT APR 19 2014

.DISCUSSION...
JUST SOME SLIGHT TWEAKS TO THE 1ST PERIOD FOR THE UPDATE...MAINLY
TO ACCOUNT FOR CLOUD COVER (SKY GRID) TRENDS. WHILE EARLY MORNING
LOW CLOUDS/FOG HAVE BURNED OFF...SATELLITE LOOPS ARE INDICATING A
SURGE OF MID/HIGH CLOUDS APPROACHING FROM THE WEST LATE THIS AFTN
AND TONIGHT. OTHERWISE THE REST OF THE FCST LOOKS GOOD ATTM. 41

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 355 AM CDT SAT APR 19 2014/

AREAS OF FOG (SOME DENSE) ARE FOUND EARLY THIS MORNING FROM THE
BAY CITY AREA TO ANGLETON. EXPECT EVERYTHING TO LIFT AND BURN OFF
AFTER SUNRISE. THE REST OF THE DAY WILL BE QUIET WITH ONLY
INCREASING CLOUD COVER AS MOISTURE FROM A MID/UPPER LEVEL LOW
SPINNING AROUND THE NORTHWEST MEXICO AREA SPREADS THIS WAY.
MOISTURE LEVELS WILL BE ON THE RISE AS THE WEEKEND
PROGRESSES...BUT WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP RAIN OUT OF THE FORECAST
UNTIL SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT AS THE MID/UPPER LEVEL LOW
EJECTS EASTWARD ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. AT THIS
TIME...IT APPEARS THAT THE BEST CHANCES FOR SHOWERS/THUNDERSTORMS
WITH THIS SYSTEM WILL BE TO OUR NORTH AND WEST...ESPECIALLY ON
MONDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING WHEN SOME STRONG/SEVERE STORMS HAVE
THE POTENTIAL TO DEVELOP (SEE SPC`S DAY 3 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK).
ANOTHER WEAK COLD FRONT THEN MOVES INTO THE AREA ON TUESDAY AS
WEAK UPPER LEVEL RIDGING BEGINS TO BUILD ACROSS THE STATE. DRIER
AND SLIGHTLY COOLER CONDITIONS ARE ANTICIPATED AROUND MID WEEK.

THE NEXT UPPER TROF THEN MOVES ACROSS THE NORTHERN PLAINS DURING THE
LATTER PART OF THE WEEK. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL BEGIN TO RETURN TO
THE AREA STARTING ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY...AND LOW RAIN CHANCES
COME BACK INTO THE FORECAST BEGINNING ON FRIDAY. NEXT WEEKEND LOOKS
LIKE IT MIGHT END UP BEING ON THE BREEZY SIDE.  42
