Area Forecast Discussion

.DISCUSSION...
May see an isolated, short lived, cell or two pop up south of I-10
in the late aftn or early evening hours. Otherwise look for a dry
night, a mix of cloudiness and overnight lows in the 60s for good
portion of the area.

Frontal zone & coastal trof should remain well off the coast
tomorrow. Expect a bit more sun to emerge so afternoon readings
should be a touch higher than todays.

A reinforcing surge of dry air will push thru SE Tx and off the coast
on Thurs. This will lead to a stretch of several pleasant early
fall-like days...lasting thru the weekend into early next week
as low/mid level ridging remains in control.

A slow modifying/moistening trend resumes early & middle parts of
next week as onshore winds resume and slowly transport Gulf
moisture back into the region. 47

&&

.MARINE...
The frontal boundary was located about 20 nm off the coast at 2:30
PM. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue to be possible
along and south of the dissipating frontal zone through Wednesday.
Behind the front surface high pressure will build over the land
areas tonight and Wednesday. The light wind regime and afternoon
heating should help a seabreeze to develop and move inland on
Wednesday. A reinforcing front is then expected to move off the
coast during the morning on Thursday.  40

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...
A drier airmass will filter across Southeast Texas on Wednesday. A
seabreeze is expected to develop and affect the coastal counties
during Wednesday afternoon. Minimum relative humidity values could
fall to between 30 and 35 percent Wednesday afternoon along and
north of a line from Groveton to Huntsville to Bellville. A second
cold front will help reinforce the dry airmass on Thursday. Some
modification of the airmass is then expected to start on Friday as
the surface winds become more easterly.  40
