Fire Weather Planning Forecast for South Central Texas
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
644 AM CDT Thu Jun 8 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Humidities will increase today as southerly low level winds
return. There could be a few areas that receive a wetting rain,
with the Hill Country having the best chance. Isolated to
scattered storms will be more common over Northwest Texas, and
they will be weakening as the move south toward South Central
Texas. Rain chances decrease again over the weekend, but
humidities will continue to gradually climb each day. Sunday
through Tuesday, there could be isolated to scattered showers and
storms mainly along and east of I-35. Rain chances decrease again
by Tuesday night with hot and humid days expected in the middle to
latter part of next week.

TTR Weather Update for COLORADO, JACKSON, and WHARTON Counties from National Weather Service Houston Galveston.

No Comments

A slow moving upper level low will once again produce scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms across Southeast Texas. A few of the stronger storms could produce locally heavy rain. Soil moisture has increased significantly and if heavy rain develops, much of the rain could run off and cause flooding issues.

There will probably be two periods of showers and thunderstorms today. The first will mainly affect areas near the coast this morning with locally heavy rain affecting Brazoria, Galveston and Chambers counties with a quick 1 to 3 inches of rain.

The second period of precipitation will come this afternoon once temperatures warm into the mid 80’s and the upper low nears the region. Showers and storms will likely redevelop around 2 PM and rapidly expand in coverage. Some of the rain will again be locally heavy. In addition, some of the storms could briefly pulse to severe limits and produce damaging winds. Rainfall totals will average between a half inch and 1.50 inches with locally higher amounts this afternoon.

Hazards: Locally heavy rain

Damaging winds

Brief funnel clouds

…Severe Thunderstorms Possible Today Across Much of South Texas…

Timing and Overview:
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop today and tonight, especially over the Coastal Bend. Conditions are favorable for strong to severe thunderstorms to develop across much of South Texas, primarily across the Coastal Bend and Coastal Plains. The best timing for severe weather is expected during the late afternoon and evening hours. The main threats are large hail and damaging straight-line wind.

The threat is expected to diminish during the overnight hours, but isolated strong storms will remain possible.

South Texas Impacts:

Winds: 60 mph or greater in severe thunderstorms, below 58 mph in strong, non-severe thunderstorms

Hail: 1 to 2 inches in severe thunderstorms, smaller hail in strong, non-severe thunderstorms

Rainfall: 1 to 2 inches possible in the heaviest storms.

Tornadoes: Although not anticipated, an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

TTR Weekend Weather Update for Colorado, Jackson, and Wharton Counties from the National Weather Service

No Comments

An unsettled weather (forecast) pattern is beginning to unfold over the Memorial Day holiday weekend. A weakening cold frontal boundary may stall somewhere over the region late Sunday or early Monday. This may provide the focus, within a warm and muggy atmosphere, to provide frequent periods of showers and thunderstorms.

MMDay17

Overview

The late Sunday through Memorial Day weather pattern of slow-moving clusters of rain and/of storm activity will introduce the threat for both high rainfall rates leading to flooding or damaging thunderstorm winds.
Confidence in Monday rainfall is increasing with lower confidence in Tuesday and Wednesday’s rainfall. Tuesday and Wednesday’s rainfall will be highly dependent upon Monday’s activity.
