Long Term
(Friday through next Tuesday) Issued at 258pm CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

Weak, stalled frontal boundary or outflow in, or near our nw zones, should linger around that general vicinity on Friday. This feature along with the seabreeze and weak impulses moving overhead may allow for isolated-scattered shra/thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.

On Saturday, surface high pressure building southward through the Plains should give the front a push later in the day and overnight and across the remainder of Southeast Texas. PW's (1.7-2.0") pooling ahead of the feature, in combination with a stronger upper level disturbance approaching the area should lead to widespread shower and thunderstorm development. Some guidance is depicting a fairly diffluent flow aloft Saturday night across northern parts of the region...possibly leading to some locally heavy rainfall if and where this sets up. Currently, most deterministic data suggests areas north of a Brenham-Trinity line might be the place to look. Some are depicting 2-6" amounts Sat evening and overnight. Too early for much in the way of confidence, but something we'll need to keep an eye on.

Guidance is back on track to showing most of the rain ending Sunday morning as the front pushes offshore. A few earlier runs indicated the potential for some lingering rain shower into Sunday afternoon ahead of the H85/H7 front. Time will tell.

More seasonable weather is then anticipated into early next week. Return flow sets back up along with a corresponding warming/modifying trend toward midweek. 47

Marine
Issued at 258pm CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

A continued onshore flow will persist into Saturday. Periods of haze and fog can be anticipated though it is not expected to become dense. The next cold front, and associated showers and thunderstorms, is scheduled to push off the coast late Saturday night or Sunday morning followed by moderate northeast winds in its wake. Onshore winds resume during the early to middle of next week. 47

Hydrology
Issued at 300am CDT Wednesday April 17 2024

Only one River Flood Warning remains in effect as of early Wednesday morning. The Trinity River at Riverside (RVRT2) is currently cresting in minor flood stage and is forecast to remain in minor flood stage through Friday afternoon. We're also continuing to monitor the Trinity River at Moss Bluff (MBFT2) as its secondary crest is forecast to reach into minor flood stage on Friday afternoon.
