No hose in the pool today! Filled the pool up, almost too high! But we will leave it. More drizzle here in Stafford. I don't have a rain gauge, but pool was a good 2" down.

0.65 inches of rain at TAMU and the airport, but a bit disappointing 0.25 in IMBY with the new rain gauge when I got back home.

I'll take clouds and kinda green for now.

So far, I've measured .44" as it winds down. I'm very grateful for the rains of the past couple of days. A week ago, it looked like this wasn't going to happen. Maybe we can get some sea breeze storms as we transition to summer.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Houston/Galveston TX
634 AM CDT Tue May 22 2018

.AVIATION [12Z TAF Issuance]...

High clouds have limited fog development this morning with only a
few patches of fog showing up in satellite imagery. A few showers
were noted along the coast moving inland. GOES 16 precipitable
water imagery shows 1.7-1.8 inches of PW which should support
mainly scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. These values are
a little lower than yesterday but weak upper trough still remains
over the area. There may be some MVFR ceilings to develop later
this morning but those ceilings should increase with day time
heating. Look for convection to initiate 15-17Z today and last
through the evening. Convection will be outflow dominated and
pulse type. There could be some 30-40kt wind gusts in some of the
stronger storms but will need to amend TAFs for that possibility.
Confidence still low enough to keep VCSH in TAFS and then update



.PREV DISCUSSION /Issued 354 AM CDT Tue May 22 2018/...

.Long Term...
Patchy fog has begun to settle in across portions of
the area this morning with a couple of streamer showers right
along the coast. Expect another round of showers and isolated
thunderstorms today, particularly right along the seabreeze this
afternoon. Coverage should generally be a touch lower than
yesterday as available moisture is slightly lower. Inverted V
soundings suggest that gusty winds will be possible with any
stronger cells that are able to develop this afternoon. Shower and
thunderstorm activity should quickly taper off after sunset with
the loss of heating.

Wednesday should see even less coverage of showers and storms and
warmer temperatures as upper ridging to the west tries to nudge
closer. For the latter half of the week we end up sandwiched
between upper ridging over West Texas and an upper trof over the
north central Gulf. Most of the rainfall should remain off to the
east over the central Gulf Coast states, but we can`t rule out
some shower and thunderstorm activity over the eastern portions of
our area depending where the upper low is positioned. Upper
ridging nudges closer from the west to start out next week,
helping dry things out a bit to close out the forecast period.


Surface analysis at 08Z shows a rather weak pressure gradient across
the NW Gulf, but enough of one to maintain onshore winds. The
pressure gradient may tighten some on Wednesday but then relax
through the end of the week. This means light to moderate winds will
continue and support generally low seas through Saturday.

At this time, forecast models are keeping any type of tropical
cyclone formation over the eastern Gulf for the weekend. We will
continue to monitor forecast data and updates from NHC, but most
likely if there are any impacts it will be higher seas.

Re: MAY 2018 - Rain Chances/Memorial Day Weekend WX

Postby srainhoutx » Tue May 22, 2018 7:17 am

Tuesday morning briefing from Jeff:

Air mass over SE TX remains moist and unstable this morning and expect another rough of late morning-afternoon showers and thunderstorms today. Main focus will be along the seabreeze front and any leftover overflow boundaries from yesterday. Think highest chances are around Matagorda Bay and SW of the Houston area. Although moisture has lessened some over the last 24 hours, brief heavy rainfall will still be a primary threat with a few isolated locations seeing 1-2 inches of rainfall in a short period of time while other nearby areas may see nothing.

Upper ridge builds out of MX Wednesday and this will reduce rain chances further with any focus being along the afternoon seabreeze front. Overall a typical summer pattern through the end of the week.

Tropical Disturbance 90L:
A trough of low pressure across the western Caribbean Sea remains disorganized this morning as it slowly moves westward toward the coast of Belize. This feature is forecast to lift NNW to N out of the western Caribbean Sea and into the SE Gulf of Mexico later this week where it will interact with a developing upper level low/trough over the central Gulf of Mexico. This will be a complex interaction and it is unclear how or even if a surface low center will develop. It is not uncommon to see such systems develop in the Gulf of Mexico this time of year and a tropical or sub-tropical system can form given the forecasted pattern by this weekend over the central and eastern Gulf of Mexico. At this time all global forecast guidance keeps any system that forms east of TX with possible impacts across FL and the central/eastern US Gulf coast.

The National Hurricane Center currently gives the feature a 40% chance of development over the next 5 days

I think storm coverage will be pretty good today. Radar showed a good amount of showers offshore this morning, indicating gulf moisture will be good as it streams inland. We don’t have a cirrus canopy, so we should get ample sunshine to really heat things up. Plus we are already seeing things bubble on satellite and radar on the south/southeast side closer to the coast.
