DISCUSSION.

See aviation discussion below for the 12Z TAFs.

AVIATION.

Clouds have spread across portions of S TX this morning, leading to MVFR cigs for LRD with possibly MVFR conditions developing across ALI and CRP as well this morning. CIGs are currently VFR at VCT, but could also lower briefly to MVFR. Therefore, have included TEMPO groups for the CIGs this morning. By mid morning clouds are expected to scatter with VFR conditions prevailing through the rest of the day and into tonight. Light patchy fog is possible late tonight into early Fri morning across the VCT area and have included a TEMPO group to account for brief MVFR visibilities.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 349 AM CDT Thu Sep 24 2020/

SHORT TERM (Today through Friday) .

A mid/upper level long wave trough will continue across the region today. The NAM and GFS close the low off by Friday with it centered across central and east TX. Despite the upper low, moisture will remain limited and a confluent flow in the upper levels will keep rain out of the forecast through Friday. Kept pops at around 5 percent across eastern areas due to the RAP and HRRR showing very light and brief showers.

Otherwise, mostly clear skies across the Rio Grande Plains and partly cloudy skies across the Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads can be expected today with even less clouds Friday. Temps will be near normal across the Rio Grande Plains and southern Coastal Bend and slightly below normal across the Victoria area.

Minor coastal flooding during this morning's high tide will subside through the morning hours and the Coastal Flood Advisory will be allowed to expire at 7 AM. With swells decreasing and winds becoming light, minor coastal flooding is not anticipated with the next high tide tonight for most locations. However, will continue to monitor trends for the possibility of brief minor flooding late tonight along the beaches south of Port Aransas.

LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday) .

Dry air will continue to move into the area as surface high pressure builds in this weekend. A weak surface low will form over Central Texas Saturday to Saturday night, dragging an associated shortwave across South Texas. While this might be enough introduce some very isolated showers, nothing is really expected as PWATs will remain below normal through early next week. The main feature for this long term will be a frontal boundary that could approach the area by the middle of this week. Confidence in this creating any significant changes is low, but winds will likely shift to the northeast and temperatures may be a degree or two cooler. The existing dry air should keep PoPs to a minimum, though isolated convection will be possible as the front approaches and possibly crosses the area.

Temperatures will continue a gradual rise through the weekend under partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. Drier air will keep heat indices below SPS or Advisory criteria, so it should be very pleasant into early next week.

MARINE .

A weak north to northeast flow is expected today and tonight, becoming northeast to east on Friday as surface high pressure drifts eastward. Precip is not anticipated due to drier air across the region. Onshore flow will resume Friday night and continue through the weekend. Winds will then shift from onshore flow to a moderate offshore flow by the middle of next week as a frontal boundary approaches.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
