New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Tuesday night)
Issued at 351 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

An upper level disturbance will exit the southern Rockies and move across the southern Plains during the period. The bulk of the associated upper forcing will remain north of the CWA (GFS/EMCWF/NAM deterministic output). In response to the upper system, onshore flow will persist over the region. Although PWAT values will remain near/slightly above normal, strong CIN values (deterministic NAM) will preclude surface-based convection during the period. Will maintain the current Wind Advisory and allow it to expire at 02z Tuesday.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through next Sunday)
Issued at 351 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

Key Message:

▶ Cold front This weekend with a medium chance (30-50%) of showers and thunderstorms

The overall flow aloft will be out of the southwest at the start of the long term period, accompanied by a mid-level high over the Gulf and a quasi-stationary surface boundary north of our CWA The flow then becomes zonal this weekend following a mid-level disturbance and an attendant front.

Rain and storm chances will be low (20-30%) across much of the region Wednesday evening through Thursday in response to a mid-level shortwave as it slides over the region. Best chances will be out west along the Rio Grande Plains. FROPA is progged for sometime Saturday night/Sunday morning. As the aforementioned front comes through there's a medium chance (40-50%) for showers and thunderstorms out west with a low chance (25-35%) over the rest of the CWA However, operational models disagree on timing so will monitor changes and update forecast as necessary.

Afternoon temperatures start out in the 80s to 90s across the region but will dip to the 70s to 80s this weekend after the front. Lows ahead of the front will range in the low to mid 70s then will range in the 60s behind the front

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 609 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

MVFR conditions are expected to continue across the eastern sites this evening through tonight while the western sites hang on to VFR conditions for a few more hours before dropping to MVFR around 07-09z. Winds will decrease tonight around 07-09z to around 12 knots before picking back up tomorrow, albeit not as strong as todays winds. Most sites should return back to VFR tomorrow around 14-16z with broken ceilings around 3k feet.

MARINE
Issued at 351 PM CDT Mon Apr 15 2024

In response to an upper level disturbance expected to move across the southern Plains through Tuesday, expect moderate to strong onshore flow over the Waters tonight/Tuesday morning. Will maintain the current Small Craft Advisory (SCA) for the coastal waters until 15z Tuesday for the coastal waters. Yet, decided to end the SCA over the bays at 02z when considering HRRR probability of >20kt 10-meter wind. Weak to moderate onshore flow is expected through the end of the week ahead of our next front.
Shower and thunderstorm chances return over the weekend as a cold front approaches. This front is expected to move off shore by Sunday with moderate northeast winds in its wake.
