New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE

SHORT TERM
(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 318 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

An upper-level ridge over the western US will keep things fairly quiet through the short term period. Skies will likely range from partly cloudy to mostly sunny this afternoon, fostering additional heating and warmer high temperatures. Lingering moisture will support PWATs >2 and CAPE values above 1500 J/kg. This combination could support some isolated convection along the seabreeze this afternoon. The best chances for showers and thunderstorms look to be located along and east of I-69C.

Conditions look to dry out Wednesday, with rain chances remaining near zero through the day. Mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s could allow heat indices to approach Heat Advisory thresholds Wednesday afternoon. The spatial and temporal coverage of these higher heat indices looks to remain too low to justify an advisory.

Favorable beach conditions look to return for the period, with slight seas supporting a low risk of rip currents.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday night through Monday)
Issued at 318 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

The most recent tropical outlook from NHC has a 20 percent chance of tropical development across the Bay of Campeche through the next 7 days. At the moment, this would keep most tropical impacts next weekend generally toward Veracruz, but an increased chance of rain, seas, and dangerous rip currents is possible along the lower Texas coast Sunday into Monday.

The mid-level ridge remains anchored across Texas this week before swinging over the Southeast through the weekend, keeping an avenue for tropical moisture and onshore flow across Deep South Texas through the forecast period. The NBM maintains convection offshore, especially overnight into each morning, then brings rain chances inland each afternoon, generally with the sea breeze. A rather typical summer setup, with abundant tropical moisture, making any shower or storm very efficient rain makers.

PWAT values rise to above 2 inches late week, near and above the 90th percentile for late June, with the highest PWAT values of near daily max values of 2.3 to 2.4 inches arriving Friday afternoon. Near normal highs and lows are expected through the long term, with humid conditions briefly pushing Heat Indices towards 110 degrees each afternoon. Sea breeze convection may limit highs a degree or two and then stifle Heat Indices as well where any showers or storms persist. Patchy fog may be possible each morning, mainly across the ranchlands.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1230 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

VFR conditions are expected to prevail through the period at all TAF sites. Light and variable winds are expected this morning, becoming light out of the southeast after sunrise. Some isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible Tuesday afternoon, however the coverage is too low to include in the TAFs at this time..

MARINE
Issued at 318 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

Today through Wednesday...Favorable marine conditions are expected through the short term period. High pressure over the gulf will support light to moderate southeasterly winds and slight seas. Some isolated showers are possible today.

Wednesday Night through Monday...High pressure works from Texas into the Southeast through the weekend, maintaining southeasterly onshore flow across the lower Texas coastal waters. Abundant tropical moisture will continue showers and thunderstorms each day, especially late night into early mornings before pushing onshore with any sea breeze. Small Craft Caution conditions are possible on Friday and Saturday, mainly across the bay. The National Hurricane Center has introduced a 20 percent chance of tropical development across the Bay of Campeche over the next 7 days. Any development could increase rain chances, winds, and seas next weekend into early next week.
