AVIATION.

VFR conditions will prevail throughout the TAF period. Conditions/model guidance do not support wind shear and have removed mention of WS. Gusty winds this afternoon will calm this evening. Gusty winds return tomorrow late morning/afternoon but not as strong. Less confident for gusts from CRP westward but will revisit that for the next period.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 546 AM CDT Thu Oct 28 2021/

AVIATION .

VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF period. Strong winds will continue with wind gusts nearing 30 knots over the Coastal Plains and Victoria Crossroads. Low level wind shear will be the greatest threat for pilots today, especially across the northern counties and along the Coastal Bend.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 357 AM CDT Thu Oct 28 2021/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

A high-amplitude trough just to the east with a surface high pressure to the west will result in a strong pressure gradient today. Winds will be strong to very strong across South Texas and over the Coastal Waters. Winds could gust to around 40 mph across the northeastern counties, so a Wind Advisory has been issued for today. Dry air will persist, with minimum RH values in the teens across the west and around 20 to 30 percent across the east. Though fuels are still green, finer fuels will be dry, so with the potential for Elevated Fire Weather conditions, so have issued an RFD for all counties except for Webb and La Salle counties from 15Z through 00Z. Winds should begin to diminish around midday Friday but will remain moderate to strong through Friday. Hopefully, this will help limit some of the Fire Weather concerns.

With the continued north to northwesterly flow, cooler daytime temperatures are expected, with highs in the low to mid 80s for today and Friday. Clear skies will lead to a cooler night tonight, with lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s over South Texas.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday) .

Quasi-zonal flow will be the dominant synoptic pattern through the long-term period. Daytime temperatures will generally be in the 80s through the next week. Areas in the Rio Grande Plains may reach into the low 90s on Sunday. Nighttime temperatures will be cooler through the weekend, with lows falling into the mid 40s to mid 50s. Southeasterly flow will return Sunday, allowing nighttime temperatures to become more mild going into the work week. The aforementioned southeasterly winds will bring in slightly warmer and more humid air to start off the work week. Mostly clear skies will give way to partly cloudy skies as moisture increases in the mid-upper levels.

Next shot at rain chances may be later in the week next week as another cold front approaches South Texas Thursday/Friday, bringing a slight chance of showers along with it. Lowered PoPs from NBM and blended with the previous forecast, as uncertainty still remains with the timing and strength of the front, as well as with how much moisture will be available ahead of the front.

MARINE .

Strong to very strong northwesterly flow will persist through today and tonight. A Gale Warning is in effect through Friday morning. Winds will begin to weaken Friday morning, with Small Craft Advisory conditions expected. Flow will then weaken to moderate to strong by late Friday and then weak to moderate by Saturday before turning onshore early Sunday. Dry conditions are expected to persist into next week.
