Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters.. A light and variable flow can be expected through the overnight hours and will continue Tuesday and Tuesday night. Light onshore winds continue through mid-week, becoming northeasterly and moderate Friday into Saturday as a low pressure system moves into the northern gulf of mexico. The national hurricane center indicates this system has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression late in the week. Small craft advisory conditions may begin over the offshore waters Friday afternoon due to increasing swells. Isolated showers and Thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday through Thursday night, becoming scattered Friday through Saturday night.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX 715 PM CDT Mon Jun 14 2021

DISCUSSION.

Thunderstorms pushed a little farther west than originally expected and tapped the strong instability that developed across the area dispite the lack of shear. Storms now showing a weakening trend and should dissipate by 02z with the loss of heating. Expect light and variable winds overnight with areas of fog developing late. Will need to monitor for patch dense fog in areas that received rain this evening provided skies can clear overnight. Updated zones to add PoPs farther west. No other changes attm.

AVIATION.

Cluster of showers and thunderstorms will continue moving west southwest through 02z before dissipating. Thunderstorm wind gusts up to 30 knots may be possible at the ALI terminal. Thereafter, expect VFR conditions through 09z. Then MVFR to LIFR in fog early Tue morning (10-13z) across the Coastal Bend from ALI-VCT. Once fog dissipates Tue morning, VFR conditions in mostly clear skies are expected for the remainder of the day. A repeat of storms will be possible Tue afternoon/evening as another mid level disturbance moves across the area.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 245 PM CDT Mon Jun 14 2021/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday Night) .

Hot and humid conditions will continue this afternoon with heat indices 105-109 across the Coastal Bend. Expect isolated showers and thunderstorms across the northeast Coastal Bend late this afternoon and evening as a weak S/W moves through. Moisture (PWATs 1.9") and instability (mixed layer capes 3000 j/kg) is highest in that area and the cap is weakest. Storms were currently moving SW across Wharton and Matagorda Counties and could approach Victoria and Calhoun Counties by 5pm. Given the environmental conditions a strong storm is possible. Convection should dissipate after sunset and winds become light and variable. This will allow for areas of fog to develop late tonight/toward sunrise Tuesday. Some patchy dense fog will be possible 10-13z Tue. Continued hot and mostly dry on Tuesday with temperatures/heat indices a degree or two less than today. Another mid level S/W will cross the NE Coastal Bend resulting in isolated/scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, mainly over the Victoria area. Winds will be light and variable, becoming onshore around 10 knots in the afternoon. Areas/Patchy fog is expected again Tuesday Night across the Coastal Plains.

LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday) .

The upper air pattern at the beginning of the long term period will be dominated by a 600 decameter ridge over the Four Corners region. After some early morning fog Wednesday morning, a shortwave trough moving under this ridge will skirt southwest along the Texas coast. This may allow for a few showers to develop, but expect most activity to remain relegated to the sea breeze during the late morning and afternoon hours across the coastal counties. Similar conditions are expected again on Thursday with a few showers or storms developing along the sea breeze. Expect heat to persist both days with afternoon heat index values in the 100-105 degree range.

Attention for Thursday into the weekend will focus on the evolution of an elongated trough currently located in the Bay of Campeche. Satellite imagery through the course of today has shown shower and thunderstorm activity associated with this feature remains largely disorganized. ASCAT passes have unfortunately missed sampling the bay this afternoon, but surface observations still indicated the presence of the surface trough. 850-250 mb shear analysis shows a corridor of very strong wind shear stretching from south of Brownsville to the Yucatan Peninsula and the presence of this shear axis will likely keep the surface trough disorganized and stationary over the next 48 hours. However, as mid-level ridging shifts westward on Thursday and an upper level trough develops and elongates along the Texas coast, the Bay of Campeche trough is expected to lift northward towards the central Gulf of Mexico and eventually the northern Gulf of Mexico by Friday.

Global deterministic and ensemble guidance remains consistent in this general northward trend in movement with the trough developing into a surface low and likely a tropical depression by Friday as it interacts with an easterly moving wave from the Caribbean. Increasing shear along the Texas coast, however, may contribute to a rather lop-sided or asymmetrical system, with the majority of rain and wind on the north and east side of whatever develops. Have maintained consistency with the previous forecast and continued to advertise increasingly hazardous marine conditions as swell from this system arrives by Friday. Hazardous beach and marine conditions may continue through Sunday before improving. In the wake of this system, expect heat to build across South Texas.

MARINE .

Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible along the coast mainly north of Port Aransas late this afternoon and Tuesday afternoon with the onshore flow remaining weak. Light onshore winds continue through mid-week, becoming northeasterly and moderate Friday into Saturday as a low pressure system into the northern Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center indicates this system has a high chance of becoming a tropical depression late in the week. Small Craft Advisory conditions may begin over the offshore waters Friday afternoon due to increasing swells. Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday through Thursday night, becoming scattered Friday through Saturday Night. Mariners should monitor the latest information from the National Hurricane Center.
