LOW LEVEL MOISTURE BEGINNING TO INCREASE AND CLOUDS HAVE BEGUN TO
DEVELOP. FCST SOUNDINGS SHOW THIS TREND AND KEEPS CONDS GENERALLY
SCATTERED THIS AFTERNOON WITH SOME POTENTIAL FOR MVFR/IFR CIGS
OVERNIGHT. ADDED A GUST GROUP FOR TOMORROW AS STRONG WINDS ALOFT
MIX TO THE SURFACE. SOME POTENTIAL FOR LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR AROUND
SUNRISE AND WILL REASSESS LLWS POTENTIAL FOR THE 21Z UPDATE. 43

A QUICK WARM UP TODAY HAS ALREADY STARTED TO COMMENCE THANKS TO
THE COLD AIR MASS PULLING TO THE EAST. CURRENT 850 MB ANALYSIS
REVEALED 850 TEMPS AROUND WHERE THEY WERE YESTERDAY WITH A SHARP
WARMING OCCURRING ACROSS THE TEXAS PANHANDLE. THIS WILL ALLOW
HIGH TEMPS TO BE A COUPLE OF DEGREES ABOVE WHERE THEY WERE
YESTERDAY. CURRENT FORECAST HAS THIS COVERED AND NO UPDATE IS
REQUIRED AT THIS TIME. 23

INFRARED IMAGERY SHOWS A BAND OF BROKEN CLOUDS AROUND 3.5KFT
MOVING UP THE MIDDLE TEXAS COAST...BUT AT THE MOMENT IS NOT
EXPECTED TO IMPACT ANY OF THE TERMINALS. LIGHT AND VARIABLE WINDS
THIS MORNING WILL BECOME SELY/SLY AND INCREASE TO AROUND 10 KNOTS
BY MIDDAY AS A SURFACE RIDGE OVER THE MISSISSIPPI VALLEY SHIFTS
EAST...WITH MOISTURE RETURN TO THE REGION RESULTING IN FEW-SCT
CLOUDS AROUND 2-2.5KFT. FORECAST SOUNDINGS AND MODEL GUIDANCE
CONTINUE TO INDICATE VFR TO MVFR CIGS GENERALLY IN PLACE AFTER

WARM AND PLEASANT WEEKEND ON TAP FOR SETX. HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE
LOWER MS VALLEY WILL SLIDE EAST AND PRESSURES WILL FALL IN THE LEE
OF THE ROCKIES TODAY AND SATURDAY. ACROSS SETX THIS WILL LEAD TO
WARMING SOUTHERLY FLOW WITH INCREASING MOISTURE. TEMPERATURES WILL
RISE TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL BY SATURDAY (BOTH MAX AND MIN TEMPERATURES)
ENDING THE LONG STRETCH OF COOL WEATHER ACROSS SETX. SOME
SPRINKLES (BENEATH THE STOUT 800MB WARM NOSE-11C) MAY OCCUR
SUNDAY BUT ACCUMULATIONS IF ANY SHOULD BE VERY LIGHT. THE WARMER
WEATHER SHOULD PREVAIL THROUGH SUNDAY AND INTO EARLY MONDAY. A
CANADIAN COLD DRY AIRMASS MOVES DOWN INTO THE CENTRAL/SOUTHERN
PLAIN MONDAY AND SHOULD SHOULD PUSH INTO SETX MONDAY AFTERNOON
WITH A BIT OF DIFFLUENCE AT 250MB DURING THE AFTERNOON. SOUNDINGS
SUPPORT SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE
FRONT. HAVE INCREASED POPS TO 30-50 PERCENT WITH THE FROPA. THE
FRONT SHOULD REACH THE COAST BY 6-9PM MONDAY AND RAIN CHANCES
SHOULD LOWER QUICKLY AS MUCH DRIER AIR SPREADS ACROSS NORTH AND
CENTRAL TEXAS...WITH THE DRIER AIR MAINLY OVER THE WESTERN
PORTIONS OF SETX. THE AIRMASS MODIFIES QUICKLY AND SETTLES OVER
SETX TUESDAY NIGHT BEFORE THE FAST UPPER FLOW OVER HIGH PLAINS
TAKES THE UPPER TROUGH EAST AND RIDGING SPREADS FROM MEXICO INTO
THE WESTERN GULF BY THURSDAY. NEAR THE SURFACE THIS SHOULD MEAN
THAT WINDS TURN FROM N TO E AND SE ENDING THE BRIEF COOL STINT AND
BRINGING BACK THE GULF MOISTURE. IF THE GFS IS ON THE RIGHT TRACK
(AND AT THE MOMENT THINK THAT IT IS) THEN WE MAY SEE SOME SEA FOG
ON THURSDAY OR FRIDAY SPREADING INTO THE REGION FROM THE EAST BUT
THIS IS STILL A LONG WAY OUT IN MODEL TERMS. RAIN CHANCES ALSO
INCREASING AGAIN NEXT FRIDAY WITH ANOTHER WEAKER CANADIAN COLD
FRONT SLOWING TO THE NORTH OF THE REGION.

SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY WILL
CONTINUE TO SLIDE EAST THROUGHOUT THE DAY...WITH WINDS OVER THE
COASTAL WATERS BECOMING MORE SOUTHEASTERLY THEN SOUTHERLY BY
TONIGHT. PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL TIGHTEN TONIGHT WITH THE REGION ON
THE FRINGES OF THE SURFACE HIGH OVER THE EASTERN CONUS. ONSHORE
WINDS AND SEAS WILL INCREASE OVER THE COASTAL WATERS IN
RESPONSE...WITH CAUTION FLAGS LIKELY NEEDED DURING THE DAY SATURDAY
/IF NOT EARLY SATURDAY MORNING/. WINDS WILL SLACKEN BY SUNDAY
EVENING AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE STATE...WITH THE FRONT

A BEAUTIFUL THANKSGIVING TODAY WITH SUNNY SKIES AND HIGHS IN THE
60S. ONSHORE FLOW WILL RETURN TOMORROW THOUGH THANKS TO SURFACE
HIGH PRESSURE MOVING OFF TO THE EAST. THE RETURN OF SOUTHEAST
WINDS WILL ALSO ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO CLIMB ALONG WITH AN INCREASE
IN CLOUD COVER. TEMPERATURES WILL APPROACH 80 IN SOME LOCATIONS
THIS WEEKEND THANKS TO HIGH PRESSURE AT 850 MB MOVING TO THE
SOUTHEAST ALLOWING 850 WINDS TO TURN FROM THE SOUTHWEST AND 850
TEMPERATURES TO NEAR 13 DEGREES C. ON SUNDAY A WEAKNESS AT 500 MB
WILL APPROACH THE AREA FROM THE WEST. MOISTURE VALUES WILL RETURN
TO NEAR NORMAL BUT MOISTURE WILL BE CONFINED TO THE LOWER LEVELS.
FORECAST SOUNDINGS ARE HINTING AT LIGHT DRIZZLE OR RAIN (IF ANY)
WITH THE PASSAGE OF THE UPPER LEVEL WEAKNESS.

AT THE SAME TIME SUNDAY A POTENT SHORTWAVE WILL PUSH EAST ACROSS
THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST BRINGING ANOTHER COLD FRONT SOUTHWARDS. THE
FRONT IS FORECASTED TO REACH THE AREA MONDAY EVENING. MOISTURE
AHEAD OF THE FRONT IS NOT VERY IMPRESSIVE (PWATS ~1.00") WITH VERY
LITTLE TO NO INSTABILITY. THIS WILL KEEP RAIN CHANCES RELATIVELY
LOW. THE CHANCE OF RAIN WILL CONTINUE INTO TUESDAY MORNING THANKS
TO WEAK UPGLIDE. THE UPPER LEVEL FLOW IS MOSTLY ZONAL THOUGH SO
THE FRONT SHOULD WASH OUT FAIRLY QUICKLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. 23

MARINE...
HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE MID MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WILL MAINTAIN LIGHT EAST
WINDS OVER THE COASTAL WATERS TONIGHT. THE HIGH WILL CONTINUE TO
DRIFT EAST ON FRIDAY WITH SOUTHEAST WINDS DEVELOPING AND
INCREASING THROUGHOUT FRIDAY. MODERATE TO OCCASIONALLY STRONG
SOUTHEAST WINDS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH SUNDAY MORNING. THE PRESSURE
GRADIENT WILL RELAX ON SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY AS A WEAK COLD
FRONT ENTERS THE STATE. THE FRONT WILL CLEAR THE COAST ON MONDAY
NIGHT WITH A LIGHT TO MODERATE NORTHEAST WIND DEVELOPING ON
TUESDAY. HIGH PRESSURE WILL MOVE EAST OF THE REGION NEXT WEDNESDAY
WITH ONSHORE WINDS REDEVELOPING. 43

CLIMATE...
THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER HAS BEEN BELOW AVERAGE ACROSS SOUTHEAST
TEXAS WITH TEMPERATURES 4 TO 7 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL (1981 -
2010). HOW COLD IS THIS HISTORICALLY THOUGH? THE COLDEST NOVEMBER
ON RECORD FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON WAS BACK IN 1976 WITH AN AVERAGE
MONTHLY TEMPERATURE OF 51.8. THE TENTH COLDEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD
FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON WAS IN 1992 WITH AN AVERAGE MONTHLY
TEMPERATURE OF 56.8. THE CURRENT AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THIS
NOVEMBER IS 56.7 DEGREES F (THROUGH THE 26TH). EVEN THOUGH TODAY
WILL BE BELOW NORMAL...THE LAST THREE DAYS OF THE MONTH WILL
LIKELY AVERAGE ABOVE NORMAL. THIS MEANS THAT THIS NOVEMBER WILL
LIKELY NOT FINISH IN THE TOP TEN COLDEST NOVEMBERS FOR THE CITY OF
HOUSTON. RECORDS FOR THE CITY OF HOUSTON GO BACK TO 1889. 23

ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL DAY TODAY WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES AND DRY AIR
THANKS TO LOW PWAT AIR IN PLACE (~0.4" ACCORDING TO GPS MET SITE).
A SURFACE COLD FRONT CONTINUES TO WORK ITS WAY SOUTH THIS
AFTERNOON WITH IT BEING LOCATED RIGHT AROUND WACO, TX AS OF 2 PM.
THE FRONT SHOULD MOVE THROUGH THE AREA LATER THIS EVENING.
THANKSGIVING LOOKS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS FOR THE AREA WITH
TEMPERATURES A COUPLE OF DEGREES BELOW NORMAL.

ON FRIDAY ONSHORE FLOW WILL RETURN TO THE AREA ALLOWING THE WARM
UP TO BEGIN ALONG WITH SOME CU IN THE AFTERNOON. SATURDAY INTO
SUNDAY A WEAKNESS ALOFT WILL MOVE OVER THE AREA BRINGING VERY LOW
RAIN CHANCES WITH IT (FORECAST SOUNDINGS SUPPORTING VERY LIGHT
RAIN OR DRIZZLE AT BEST). THE NEXT POSSIBLE FRONT AFTER TONIGHT
WILL BE LATE MONDAY OR EARLY TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. MODELS
GENERALLY STALL THE FRONT OUT ACROSS THE AREA. EVEN THE FRONT
MAKING IT THIS FAR SOUTH SEEMS GENEROUS AT THIS POINT GIVEN THE
ZONAL FLOW. WILL LOOK FOR MORE MODEL CONSISTENCY IN THE FUTURE
BEFORE MAKING BIG CHANGES. 23

THE PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL BEGIN TO RELAX LATE THIS AFTERNOON AS A WEAK
COLD FRONT APPROACHES SOUTHEAST TEXAS. THE FRONT WILL CROSS THE COAST LATE
TONIGHT WITH NORTH WINDS DEVELOPING. THE WINDS WILL VEER TO THE NORTHEAST
AND INCREASE AROUND SUNRISE AND STAY RELATIVELY STRONG THROUGH THE EARLY
AFTERNOON BEFORE DIMINISHING. HAVE ISSUED A SCEC FOR THE GULF WATERS THROUGH

445 AM CST WED NOV 26 2014

.DISCUSSION...
NOT A LOT OF CHANGES FOR THE SHORT/MID RANGE PART OF THE FCST AS
SE TX REMAINS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE UPPER RIDGE TO THE WEST.
A REINFORCING SHOT OF COOL/DRY AIR TONIGHT WILL HELP TO KEEP THE
THANKSGIVING FCST QUIET. AS THE SFC HIGH MOVES OFF THE EAST...ON-
SHORE WINDS SET TO RETURN FRI WHICH SHOULD BRING WITH IT WARMING
TEMPS/SLOWLY INCREASING LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

THE FLATTENING UPPER RIDGE (PERHAPS PARTIALLY CAUSED BY A CLOSED
LOW TRYING TO DEEPEN AS IT TRACKS ACROSS NRN MEXICO) OVER THE UP-
COMING WEEKEND WILL ALSO HELP TO SLOWLY INCREASE OUR POPS BY THE
END OF THE WEEKEND. HOWEVER HAVE TWEAKED POPS BACK A BIT FOR SUN
ACROSS NRN/CENTRAL FA LOCATIONS AS THERE ARE QUESTIONS REGARDING
MOISTURE AVAILABILITY AT THAT TIME. OTHERWISE WILL KEEP LOW POPS
IN PLACE FOR THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK GIVEN THE PROGS OF WEAK
SHORTWAVES AND/OR COLD FRONTS. WHILE THESE LATEST EXTENDED MODEL
RUNS ARE STARTING TO LOSE SOME COHESION WITH THE WHY THEY REMAIN
IN GENERAL AGREEMENT WITH THE IDEA OF POPS. 41

&&

.AVIATION...
 VFR. WINDS THE ONLY ISSUE...SOUTHWEST FLOW INCREASES QUICKLY WITH
HEATING THIS MORNING AND MAY GET GUSTY BEFORE RELAXING AND BECOMING
MORE WESTERLY THIS EVENING. WEAK COLD FRONT SLIDES THROUGH CLL-UTS
01-02Z AND IAH/HOU 03-05Z. WINDS QUICKLY BECOMING NORTHEAST
THANKSGIVING MORNING BUT TYPICALLY 10 KNOTS OR LESS.
45

&&

.MARINE...
 HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE WESTERN/CENTRAL GULF WILL LEAD TO
INCREASING SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW TODAY AND WINDS SHOULD INCREASE TO
AROUND 15 KNOTS AND MAY EVEN REACH THE 15-20 KNOT RANGE OVER THE
EASTERN WATERS BY NOON. GRADIENT BEGIN TO RELAX LATE THIS AFTERNOON
AND LIGHT WINDS TONIGHT BECOME NORTHEAST AND INCREASE AGAIN AS A
WEAK COLD FRONT SLIDES OUT OVER THE COAST. WINDS AGAIN MAY BRIEFLY
REACH SCEC. SOUTHERLY FLOW RETURNS FRIDAY AND CONTINUES WELL IN THE
FIRST OF NEXT WEEK. SOME SPOTTY SHOWERS POSSIBLE LATE SUNDAY AND
MONDAY.

SKIES HAVE CLEARED OUT ACROSS ALMOST ALL OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS THIS AFTERNOON.
IT WILL BE CLEAR AND COOL TONIGHT WITH WINDS COMING AROUND TO THE SOUTH

TEXAS ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT WILL COOL THE AREA DOWN ONCE AGAIN. THANKSGIVING

HIGH PRESSURE MOVES OFF TO THE EAST ON THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY...AND
THIS WILL ALLOW WINDS TO COME BACK AROUND TO THE SOUTH AS WE CLOSE OUT
THE WEEK. THIS ONSHORE FLOW WILL PERSIST OVER THE WEEKEND RESULTING
IN WARMING TEMPERATURES AND INCREASING HUMIDITIES. WILL CONTINUE TO
CARRY A VERY LOW CHANCE OF SHOWERS BEGINNING ON SUNDAY AND CONTINUING
THROUGH TUESDAY. MODELS ARE NOT IN AGREEMENT WITH THE TIMING OF THE
NEXT COLD FRONT. AFTER COORDINATING WITH SOME OF OUR ADJACENT OFFICES...
