PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 1016 PM CST Tue Jan 18 2022/

DISCUSSION . Wx map shows sfc high pressure off the Southeast U.S. and a broad sfc low developing over the TX/OK Panhandle. This is keeping a rather brisk southeast flow across the Gulf where Small Craft Exercise Caution continues this evening into the overnight hours. Inland, southeast winds around 10 to 15 mph continue south of the I-10 corridor, and 5-10 mph further north. This will likely keep the current temperatures in the mid 50s nearly steady overnight, and likely to rise a couple of degrees across SE TX/SW LA by daybreak. Otherwise, partly cloudy skies likely to become mostly cloudy by daybreak, with no precipitation expected overnight. This will change significantly in 24 hours as the next strong cold front approaches our region. For the nearterm, the ongoing forecast is on track with no updates needed at this time.

SHORT TERM [Today through 12Z Friday] .

Looking at surface analysis this afternoon, high pressure is to our east while low pressure is over the Plains. Between these two features, the forecast area will remain quiet and dry for the next 18 hours or so, before things begin to take a turn later tomorrow. Until then, main concern will be breezy onshore flow as the pressure gradient overhead continues to tighten. Moisture will be quick to return tonight into tomorrow, allowing clouds to gradually fill in and temps to hold in the mid to upper 50s.

Tomorrow, we start the day mild and dry with temps quickly warming into the lower 70s by midday. Rain chances begin to gradually creep back in through the afternoon, as a deepening low pressure system in the Plains sends a strong cold front towards the forecast area. Ahead of this front, SPC has included nearly the entire CWA in a Marginal Risk for severe weather, with the main threat expected to be damaging wind gusts, however, SE TX as well as extreme western LA are also included in a low end chance of isolated tornadoes and hail. These threats looks greatest tomorrow night into early Thursday morning however, a few discrete thunderstorms will be possible earlier in the afternoon/evening hours tomorrow as well. Once the squall line passes through temperatures will begin to drop rather rapidly as winds shift to the north and much colder air filters into the region, with temps plummeting into the 40s through the afternoon. On top of this, drier air will lag well behind the front, so cloud cover will hang around through the day making it feel even colder.

Thursday night into Friday morning things get even more interesting (and challenging). Confidence in this part of the forecast remains low, but to put it simply it is still not out of the realm of possibility for winter weather to occur through this period. Temps will fall even further after sunset Thursday evening, with near or below freezing temps then spreading over the region overnight. At the same time, a couple of upper level disturbances passing overhead are expected to tap into the lingering moisture, helping to initialize some overrunning precip. So the big question is, how much moisture, if any, will really be available through this time frame. If moisture availability is decent and precip is able to fall at the same time as sub freezing temps then we will see some sort of wintry mix occurring Thursday night through early Friday, but if moisture is lacking, wintry precip will be hard to come by.

Despite low confidence in wintry precip, I have medium to high confidence in low to no accumulation values for the short term specifically. Nevertheless I'd be remiss if I did not state this: Hard freeze conditions appear likely early Friday. Black ice could form on roads and especially bridges. Protect the 4 Ps: people, pets, plants, pipes.

17

LONG TERM [Friday through Tuesday] .

The chance for freezing rain or sleet is still on the low side, but worth mentioning for Friday morning. Temperatures should get above freezing by midday Friday and the threat for frozen precipitation will end.

ECMWF still shows this scenario as dry, while the GFS and NAM are quite bullish on a tenth of an inch of ice. Will be monitoring closely over the next day or two to see if this trend continues.

Hard freeze criteria is expected Friday night into Saturday morning across almost the entire region. No precip however, but it will be a reminder of protecting the 3 Ps - people, pets, and pipes.

Temperatures will slwly moderate through the remainder of the weekend and be near normal by Monday.

15

MARINE .

Tonight, wind around 15-20kts are expected in the offshore waters, therefore a Small Craft Exercise Caution has been issued from 03-09Z for those zones. Elsewhere, a light to moderate onshore flow can be expected overnight. Winds will then relax slightly area-wide tomorrow morning, remaining around 10-15kts until the passage of our next front tomorrow night. Behind that front, a strong offshore flow will prevail through the rest of the week and into the weekend. Therefore, a Gale Watch has been issued beginning at 12Z Thursday.
