PUBLIC FORECAST EXPLANATION
ISSUED: 08/28/2014 1641C
The sea-breeze is looking pretty good this afternoon, with widely scattered activity
forecast to reach a Jefferson-Tyler-Temple line before the activity dissipates with sunset.
Tomorrow, an upper air low will begin its two-day crossing, with scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms on both Friday and Saturday, with the activity shifting mainly into
Louisiana on Sunday. A weak cold front will help out the process. Rainfall amounts should run
between one-half inch and one inch, with areal coverage of 75-80 percent. Both increase from
south to north, though the sea-breeze should again be active over the central and southern
counties tomorrow.
The tropical low is still about 50-75 miles east of brownsville, and is drifting westward.
It will be coming ashore this evening, and should help out in the moisture supply business for us.
The upper air high will begin building back weakly early next week. This pretty much
shuts down the showers. Temperatures, after running a bit below normal from tomorrow through
Sunday, will go back to normal levels for early next week.
Beyond that, there is another tropical wave along 66W, and the prediction by some of the
models of another cold front and storm system. One of these should return rain chances next
Wednesday or Thursday.
At 4 p.m. today, skies are partly cloudy to fair, winds light southeasterly, and
temperatures are running from the middle 80s where showers are nearby to the middle 90s
elsewhere. RKP
