Good day everyone!

Analysis of the global models and the NAM model are still forecasting moderate to heavy accumulations of rainfall during this week, and possibly into the beginning of the weekend over the south central portion of the U. S., spreading eastward.  Upon analyzing the model solutions, I did not really notice any significant surface low that may be responsible for inducing this weather, but rather an elongated surface and mid level trough of lower pressure, with a negative tilt.  Based on analysis of the upcoming 500 mb and 200 mb pattern, the setup will allow for development of frontal waves with the accompanying frontal boundary, along with shortwaves progressing along the 500 mb trough.  The combination of these 2 features will allow for enough moisture to flow north from the GOMEX, along with warm air advection and enough lift to provide the ingredients for the heavy rainfall.  This trough is going to be slow moving in nature, which will allow for these “frontal waves” and shortwave troughs to be numerous, and passing over the forecast area through at least mid week.  Some rainfall totals could exceed “4 – 5” inches total by the end of the period in isolated locations.  At the time of analysis, rain was already in progress over the Houston area. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a MARGINAL risk of severe thunderstorms in the day 2 and day 3 outlooks.  Currently, the tornado risk associated with the outlooks is marginal, and tornado development would be isolated within the MARGINAL risk outlines.  Forecast deep layer shear is slated to be 60 kts, and winds will be veering with height from SE at the surface to SW from 500 mb – 250 mb.  With only moderate to weak instability forecast at the moment, any tornado activity should be weak.  IF the areas become upgraded to the next level, I will have updates for severe weather over the next couple of days, with indices listed.

About palmharborforecastcenter

I am a Tropical Forecast meteorologist, providing hurricane forecasts during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in July of 2001. Meteorology became my passion in high school, and I have continued my educational background in meteorology since 1996, when I undertook the study of Tropical Meteorology. While working toward my degree, I had to unexpectedly withdraw from college due to my oldest sons medical reasons. I do however, meet the educational criteria of the AMS to be recognized as a meteorologist. Studies include, but are not limited to the Navy Aerographers Mate course, Naval METOC meteorology course, Meteorology 2010 Sophomore level course while attending St. Petersburg College, Clearwater, FL., Basic Forecasting course for operational meteorologists from Rapid WX, meteorology institute, a four month meteorological internship, and extensive research on numerous meteorological topics such as the MJO, NAO, satellite imagery interpretation, etc.

I have been forecasting Tropical Weather (Tropical Storms and Hurricanes) since 1996, with my main client being three different Coast Guard Commands.
