New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Monday night)
Issued at 222 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Key Messages:

- Tropical Disturbance off the NE Mexican Coast moves inland tonight.
- Rain chances lower as heat builds -Minor Coastal Flooding and High Risk of Rip Currents through Monday.

The latest on Invest 93L. A reconnaissance aircraft investigated the area of disturbed weather earlier today and found a weak circulation about 40mi SE of La Pesca, Mexico or 170mi South of Port Isabel. Latest satellite loops verify this exposed center east of the Mexican coast with the majority of the convection west of the center over land. Models show the center moving inland by sunset and that should end any further development. The disturbance should weaken considerable later tonight and Monday as it continues to track west along the southern periphery of the 500mb ridge centered over West Texas.

As for our rainfall chances diurnal convection is forecast due to plenty of residual moisture from the surface to 700mb. With the upper ridge becoming well established and subsidence increasing, coverage of convection is likely to decrease. Deterministic and Hi- res models as well as the National Blend of Models (NBM) are on the same page here showing 30-40% over land the remainder of today and again Monday late morning spread west through the afternoon with some assistance of the sea breeze. Convection should wane this evening/tonight overland and redevelop over the Gulf waters overnight as instability increases over the water.

Coastal Rip current risk and the minor coastal flooding look to persist through Monday as an 8 second moderate swell continue to be directed towards the lower Texas coast due to a long fetch of easterly winds. Will maintain the coastal flood advisory and the rip current statement (Currently expires 7 PM Monday) until we see more substantial decrease in the swell train.

Temperatures look to inch up into the mid 90s with less rain coverage and more sun peaking through the clouds. Humidity and heat indices are likely to be elevated Monday afternoon with max "feel like" temperatures nearing 110 degrees in several locations. Muggy overnight lows range 75-80 degrees the next few mornings.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday through next Sunday)
Issued at 222 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

The long term forecast for Deep South Texas will feature seasonable temperatures for late June and fairly limited daily precipitation chances. The mid/upper level ridge will be centered over West Texas Tuesday and Wednesday, before gradually shifting toward the Southern Plains once again heading into the weekend. Meanwhile, low level southerly flow will maintain elevated humidity across Deep South Texas, as well as high precipitable water values through the week.
Rain/storm chances will be limited mainly to any showers and thunderstorms that are able to develop off of the sea breeze each afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday, but should be fairly limited.
Deterministic guidance indicates unsettled weather may return towards the end of the week as a shortwave traverses along the periphery of the ridge into South Texas. In combination with high moisture content, this could result in an uptick in precipitation coverage late this week and into the weekend. There is still some uncertainty on this potential, and PoPs have been confined to mostly the 20-50 percent range.

Outside of precipitation chances through the week, the main weather story in the long term period will be the return of triple-digit heat indices. Elevated dew points, associated with well established low level southerly to southeasterly flow, and generally near normal temperatures will result in heat indices ranging 104 to 111 degrees degrees each afternoon. The NWS Heat Risk tool indicates a moderate risk of heat-related illness, which would mainly affect groups sensitive to heat (children, elderly, chronically ill) and those spending prolonged periods outdoors without adequate breaks or hydration. Regardless of the issuance of any heat headlines, remember to take proper precautions from the heat to prevent any heat-related illnesses.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 524 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

VFR conditions will prevail at the aerodromes through the next 24 hours, with generally partly cloudy skies and light winds. A TEMPO has been added for a portion of Monday based on the HRRR model guidance, which suggests convection for the late morning into the early afternoon.

MARINE
Issued at 222 PM CDT Sun Jun 23 2024

Tonight through Monday Night...The tropical disturbance currently located 40mi northeast of La Pesca, Mexico or approximately 170mi S of Port Isabel, TX is expected to move inland over NE Mexico later this evening or tonight. No further significant development is anticipated with this system. Light to moderate east to southeast wind persist through the period with seas steadily subsiding Monday. The coastal waters can expect slow improvement as seas and residual swell trend lower the next 24-36 hours.
Surface high pressure over the Gulf will maintain light east to southeast winds through Monday night.

Tuesday through Sunday...Generally favorable marine conditions are expected over the Gulf waters and Laguna Madre as light to moderate southeast winds and low to moderate seas prevail.
Isolated to widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the week, which may result in higher winds and seas.
