Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX 106 PM CDT Thu Oct 21 2021

AVIATION.

VFR conditions expected this afternoon/evening. Anticipate the development of patchy/areas of fog overnight/early Friday morning, mainly 09-13z Friday. Predominate VFR conditions anticipated toward the end of the TAF period. Weak to moderate onshore flow late this afternoon/early evening. Otherwise, winds generally light.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 625 AM CDT Thu Oct 21 2021/

AVIATION .

Dense fog has settled in across VCT and ALI with both sites currently at LIFR. Visibility has just begun dropping at CRP where brief MVFR conditions will be possible this morning. MVFR ceilings are possible for the Brush Country around 11Z to 15Z before the cloud deck lifts. The overnight fog should dissipate shortly after sunrise around 14/15z returning all sites to VFR. Light easterly winds are expected today across all sites with only a few clouds around. Fog is expected to develop again tonight, mainly across ALI and VCT. Due to uncertainty on the coverage and density of the fog, went with a conservative forecast with MVFR conditions after 10z, however, models are showing the possibility of IFR/LIFR conditions due to dense fog tomorrow night.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 406 AM CDT Thu Oct 21 2021/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

Fog began developing a couple of hours ago with a few sites already experiencing dense fog. As the night progresses, the dense fog is expected to become more widespread across the Coastal Plains and Victoria Crossroads before eventually dissipating shortly after sunrise around 15z. Upper level zonal flow is expected to continue through Friday afternoon while occasional shortwaves traverse the area in the mid levels. Despite the pulses of energy in the mid levels, convection is not anticipated due to limited moisture with PWATs less than 1.5". Another round of patchy to areas of fog is expected tomorrow night from the Brush Country to the Victoria Crossroads, with the best chance for dense fog across the Brush Country and Coastal Plains. A Coastal Flood Advisory was issued from this afternoon into this evening as P-ETSS guidance continues to show minor coastal flooding possible during times of high tide. The coastal flooding threat is expected to continue tomorrow as tide levels are expected to once again surpass 2 feet above MSL.

Temperatures are expected to continue to gradually warm up today and tomorrow with highs ranging from the mid 80s near the coast to the lower 90s inland. Low temperatures will also remain warm with lows ranging from the mid 60s inland to the mid 70s near the coast.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday) .

Following the departure of semi-zonal flow this weekend, models are beginning to converge with a more amplified/unsettled regime by the middle of next week complete with a cold front and what could be our best window for rain chances for the remainder of the month. Until then, low-end rain chances focus along our coastal counties and the waters near an axis of PWATs around 1.5" with decent instability at times. The first in a pair of modest shortwaves this weekend arrives on Saturday while offering little/if any additional forcing for ascent, so just some streamer showers and diurnally driving convection near the coast remain in the cards. Slight chance PoPs Saturday night and early Sunday may have room to expand farther inland as the second and better defined shortwave arrives, but guidance remains pretty paltry with QPF west of the Coastal Bend.

Transient ridging unfolds late Sunday through Monday ahead of a rather vigorous trough in the Intermountain West. Models are in better agreement with this wave digging farther south along the Red River by Wednesday and closing off a mid-level low. What remains unclear is how a tropical system in the eastern Pacific will behave in advance of this low. The GFS remains the wettest solution in streaming the remnants of the tropical wave over S TX which ratchets our PWATs up to 2" from Tue-Tue night complete with heavy rain. This scenario has yet to gain support from the ECMWF and CMC, but can't rule out some tropical contribution by Tue which seems fitting for at least 20% PoPs as far west as the Brush Country. If this tropical factor fails to pan out like the ECMWF and CMC advertise, then our southwesterly 850mb winds by Tue/Tue night would likely curb rain chances ahead of the digging trough and cold front by Wednesday.

Minor coastal flooding is progged to become more robust during times of high tide this weekend and lingering into early next week, especially with multiple days of steady onshore flow.

MARINE .

Generally light onshore flow will continue through Friday before increasing to weak to moderate from Friday night through Monday. Increasing moisture will contribute to isolated showers and thunderstorms Friday through Sunday.
