Synopsis for the middle texas coastal waters -
there is a medium to high (40-60%) chance of showers and Thunderstorms tonight through Sunday morning as a cold front pushes across the gulf waters. The showers and Thunderstorms will end from northwest to southeast through Sunday afternoon as cooler and drier air moves into the area. Strong north winds will develop behind the cold front with a small craft advisory in effect Sunday through Sunday evening. Weak to moderate northeasterly flow Monday morning will shift to the east early Monday evening, becoming southeasterly by early Tuesday morning. These weak to moderate southeast winds are expected most of next week. By next Friday, southeasterly flow will become moderate to strong, which could lead to elevated seas and choppy to occasionally rough conditions.

SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Sunday night)
Issued at 249 PM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Key Messages:

- Marginal risk of severe thunderstorms across a majority of South Texas tonight.

- Marginal risk of excessive rainfall across the northern Brush Country to the Victoria Crossroads.

- A medium to high chance (40-70%)of showers and thunderstorms beginning late this afternoon into the evening ahead and along a cold front.

- Cooler with rain ending Sunday.

A few showers are currently moving northward across the Victoria Crossroads per radar. With deep moisture in place across S TX along with an unstable environment, showers and thunderstorms are expected to increase in areal coverage through the afternoon hours. The caveat is the strong capping inversion at around 750mb suppressing deeper development. Models indicate the cap will weaken through the afternoon hours, especially across the northern portions of the CWA

Per MSAS analysis of theta-E, the cold front is draped across TX from the Big Bend to LA. A trough is also located across S TX into the Hill Country. In the upper levels, an embedded short wave is approaching from the southwest while a stronger trough of low pressure is approaching the region from across northern Mexico.

Models prog the trough to deepen as it moves toward Central and South Texas this afternoon and evening. This will help push the cold front southward which will provide increasing low level moisture convergence as it moves toward the Rio Grande Plains. PWATs are around 1.8 inches, which is in the 99th percentile for this time of year. With the heaviest rainfall expected across the northern CWA, the Weather Prediction Center has placed a marginal risk of excessive rainfall for those areas and northward. Localized flooding will be possible, especially in low lying areas and urban areas. However, widespread flooding is not anticipated unless the cold front stalls and storms train across the area.

The deep moisture, unstable airmass, low level convergence and increasing diffluence aloft all combined will be favorable for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms to develop ahead and along the cold front. The question remains whether the capping inversion will sufficiently weaken to allow for deep convection supportive of strong to severe storms with damaging winds and large hail the main threats and a low chance (~2%)of tornadoes. If the cap does not erode sufficiently, then elevated storms are more likely to develop with the hail and winds being less of a threat, but still possible. The Storms Prediction Center has a marginal risk of severe storms across most of S TX west of a line from Alice to Port O'Connor. The storms are expected to weaken as they move south and east toward the southern Coastal Bend due to less conducive conditions.

The other question is timing as models vary by a few hours. They all show convection firing by this evening, but some are showing the activity beginning this afternoon around 22Z across the north and west portions of the CWA Some models hang on to the convection later in the day on Sunday.

In a nutshell, confidence is high (60-80%) that a cold front with showers and thunderstorms will move through S TX sometime this evening or overnight, but confidence is low (15-25%) with regards to the actual timing and severity.

Behind the cold front, conditions will be cooler with rain ending from northwest to southeast. Highs are expected to be in the upper 60s to mid 70s along with breezy north winds. Skies are expected to remain mostly cloudy through much of Sunday and Sunday night. Lows will be chilly in the 50s across most of S TX Sunday night.

LONG TERM
(Monday through next Friday)
Issued at 249 PM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

We start off the long term period with below normal high temperatures, which will rise to the low to mid 70s across the CWA as a result of a cold frontal passage from over the weekend.
Temperatures warm to near normal by mid-week as a surface high will begin to drift to the east and upper-level ridging sets in, leading to the reestablishment of onshore flow and thus a gradual increase in both temperatures and humidity through the end of the work week.
By next weekend, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s in the Victoria Crossroads, the low to mid 90s across the Coastal Plains, and even reach the triple digits in the Brush Country.

Mid-range guidance is showing the progression of an mid-to-upper level trough over the Pacific Southwest moving eastward towards the west-central Rockies late Wednesday through Thursday. The resulting tightening of the pressure gradient will allow for breezy conditions early Friday into next weekend, with a low-to-medium chance of wind gusts greater than 30 mph.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1134 PM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Showers and thunderstorms will continue to impact area terminals overnight as a cold front moves across the region. A few strong to severe thunderstorms will remain possible with large hail and strong winds being the primary concerns. The aforementioned environment will lead to poor aviation conditions across area sites, with a mixture of MVFR to IFR expected. Conditions will be slow to improve Sunday morning, with a few showers and thunderstorms lingering behind into the afternoon hours and maintaining MVFR ceilings around. Winds will become gusty out of the north and northeast as the boundary moves through the area overnight with gusts to 30-35 knots possible. Winds will decrease below 12 knots during the afternoon hours on Sunday.

MARINE
Issued at 249 PM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

There is a medium to high (40-60%) chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight through Sunday morning as a cold front pushes across the gulf waters. The showers and thunderstorms will end from northwest to southeast through Sunday afternoon as cooler and drier air moves into the area. Strong north winds will develop behind the cold front with a Small Craft Advisory in effect Sunday through Sunday evening. Weak to moderate northeasterly flow Monday morning will shift to the east early Monday evening, becoming southeasterly by early Tuesday morning. These weak to moderate southeast winds are expected most of next week. By next Friday, southeasterly flow will become moderate to strong, which could lead to elevated seas and choppy to occasionally rough conditions.

FIRE WEATHER
Issued at 249 PM CDT Sat Apr 20 2024

Fire weather concerns are not expected Sunday as humidity will remain above 50% area-wide. With winds next week under 20 mph and relative humidity values above 50%, elevated fire weather conditions are not expected to develop through the week.
