. New Short Term, Aviation .

SHORT TERM. /NEW/ /Through Friday/

Very windy conditions continue across the entire region thanks to a tight pressure gradient over the Southern Plains. Some locations have already seen gusts near 50 mph and this will persist through the rest of the afternoon. The Wind Advisory is still in effect for all North and Central TX until 7 PM CDT as winds slightly diminish this evening. While it will be breezy/windy again tomorrow, it won't be as strong as today. The storm system should continue to move eastward away from our region. However, we can't rule out a few gusts between 25 and 30 mph. Otherwise, expect another sunny and cool day with highs generally in the upper 60s to low 70s. The morning lows will also be on the cooler side with values in the mid 40s to low 50s.

LONG TERM. /Issued 318 AM CDT Thu Oct 28 2021/ /This Weekend Through The Middle Of Next Week/

The broad and occluded upper low centered over the Tennessee and Ohio River Valleys will begin weakening and accelerating northeast up into New England and Quebec this coming weekend as a deepening trough evolves over the central canadian provinces. We will see one more breezy and cooler than normal day (for some) on Friday, before flow aloft quickly dampens this weekend into a more zonal configuration. Meanwhile, surface pressure will begin waning late Friday with the approaching surface ridge, before it moves east of the area on Saturday, as pressure falls begin across the lee of the Southern Rockies. The gusty northwest winds should begin to wane later Friday afternoon, before decoupling and becoming light after nightfall Friday night in time for Friday night high school outdoor games.

Keep the coats and jackets handy as the dry air will cool rapidly with lows falling into the lower to mid 40s around sunrise Saturday, with a few readings in the upper 30s not out of the question for those very rural and protected areas. Light northwest winds will begin your chilly Saturday morning, eventually becoming light southerly across the west Saturday night, then increasing southeast breezes and warmer temperatures on Sunday. Highs will be seasonal in the 70s on Saturday, before warming close to 80 degrees Sunday across western Central TX and areas west of US-281. With the nearshore waters of the western GOM remaining scoured by the recent strong cold front, any moisture return will be slow, shallow, and quite modified. Pleasantly low humidity values for your entire weekend, outside of the chilly early morning hours, afternoons and early evenings should be quite pleasant for those needing to escape the house and enjoy outdoor activities. It'll cool off quickly by sunset for trick or treating, so be sure those costumes are warm or have those coats and jackets handy for the young ones.

Another system arrives into the Pacific Northwest on Monday, but will remain contained within the northern branch of the westerlies with flow across the Southern CONUS remaining mostly zonal. There will be occasional, fast-moving impulses overhead which will continue the northward transport of the modified moisture from the western GOM, but we're only talking surface dew point values in the 50s which compared to the weekend will feel more "humid" in a relative sense. An amplifying and broad upper trough building southward from eastern Canada and Great Lakes will support our next cold front through the area either late Tuesday or on Wednesday. More vigorous mid level impulses and sufficient moisture should bring our next realistic rain chances by then, especially across eastern counties where richer moisture will be in place. At this time, it would appear any convection would be post or ana-frontal, thus likely to be elevated in nature as the better ascent aloft lags behind.

Plenty of uncertainty as one would expect being we're talking a week out, so just be sure to get out and enjoy the dry weather and low humidity this weekend into Monday. The weather goes downhill later in the week with cool and damp weather the latter half of the week with lows mostly in the 40s and highs only warming into the 50s, to maybe lower 60s across Central Texas.

AVIATION. /NEW/ /18z TAFs/

VFR conditions with strong northwest winds as the main issue through this evening. Wind gusts approaching 45 kt will be possible this afternoon before they subside to around 25-30 kt tonight and tomorrow. LLWS will be a concern again tonight across all sites as surface winds slightly diminish after sunset. Winds will increase again Friday, but they won't be as strong as today. These windy conditions will finally come to an end Friday evening.
