Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX

.DISCUSSION...
Skies have become partly cloudy today as some cirrus streams
across the area from the west. Mid-afternoon temperatures are
mainly in the upper 50s to lower 60s inland and in the mid to
upper 50s at the coast. Surface high pressure gradually works
itself eastward over the next several days, and this allows for
mainly light south to southeast winds to return to the area.
We`ll see warming temperatures through Saturday night with
readings eventually getting back toward the normal mid-November
lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s. The onshore flow will also
bring a rise in moisture levels with low rain chances coming back
into the forecast beginning Saturday night and then increasing on
Sunday as a cold front moves into the area in the afternoon and
works its way off the coast overnight. Temperatures will cool back
down behind the front, and look for these cooler readings to
persist for much of next week with generally mostly cloudy to
cloudy skies and periods of rain. Will continue to generally carry
the higher rain chances near the coast and offshore and the lower
rain chances well inland (especially Monday night/Tuesday and
again Wednesday night/Thursday). Confidence on the timing of these
better rain chances still remains on the low side as we continue
to wait for better model agreement. 42

.MARINE...
Generally light northerly winds and low seas will continue for the
next day or so with winds becoming onshore again Friday night. A
cold front will push off the cost Sunday night or early Monday, with
breezy NE winds and building seas in its wake. SCEC conditions are
possible in the wake of this front. Tide levels are returning to
near normal.
