Subject:NOAA Houston / Galveston Sea fog outlook for next week

Priority:Normal
Notice:

To all concerned

From: NWS Houston/Galveston <sr-hgx.nws@noaa.gov>

Subject: Sea fog outlook for next week

<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal"> 
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">A more prevalent onshore wind will resume overnight and persist for the next 7 days or so.  This will bring a warm/moist airmass back over the cooler shelf waters...eventually providing a favorable environment for sea fog development.
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal"> 
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">When should it begin?
·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">Might see the beginning stages as early as Monday afternoon in the Gulf waters. The overall threat further increases going into Monday night and Tuesday morning. ·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">Once it does develop it should follow the typical pattern with periods of improvement in the bays during the late morning and afternoon hours, then roll back in at night.
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">When should the threat end?
·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">The next front isn't forecast to move into the waters until late next weekend (Sunday March 15th or so), unfortunately.  So dependent on several variables described below, this could be a potential long lived hazard.
<span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif">How dense will the fog be?  Variables and uncertainties?
·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">At this time we are more confident of the threat of visibilities below 2 miles in the Monday night through Wednesday timeframe.  ·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">Water temperatures are currently 61-64° in the nearshore waters and bays. They should gradually warm as the week progresses. In general, this may reduce the threat of long lived dense visibilities...maybe into a more prevalent 2-6 mile type fog/haze during the second half of the week. ·         <span-size:9.5pt;font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;font-weight:normal">Small wind direction/speed changes and isolated showers could also alter fog characteristics. This is tough to accurately forecast beyond the first few days.
