Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Corpus Christi TX 918 PM CST Tue Jan 26 2021

DISCUSSION.

Surface cold front was moving through the western Hill Country ATTM with 6MB pressure rises (per 3hrs) in its wake. Latest high res models initialized the front in its current position and bring it to a COT-LRD line by 07z and off the coast between 09-10z. Until then, dense fog will slowly spread inland. However the fog will quickly disolve as the front moves through. Breezy to windy conditions will develop in the wake of the front before sunrise as strong CAA develops across the area. Still confident we will see strong SCA's over the marine areas with a few gusts to gale force. Current forecast is on track. Only made minor adjustments to the wind grids across the NW Brush Country.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 602 PM CST Tue Jan 26 2021/

DISCUSSION .

Dense sea fog has developed along the immediate coast and was spreading inland across the bays. New port visibility sensor at the Marine Science Institute at Port Aransas as well as Web cam visuals helped to confirm the presence of fog. Rich dwpts near 70 degrees will continue to override the cool shelf/bay waters while nosing inland across the coastal counties through the evening hours. Issued a Dense Fog Advisory for marine areas and this will likely get expanded inland in next few hours. Fog is expected to rapidly clear with the passage of the strong cold front after 9z.

AVIATION .

VFR conditions currently prevail at all sites and will persist through the early evening. Areas of dense fog are expected to develop over the southern Coastal Plains and Coastal Bend as calm winds and an increase in moisture are in place ahead of a strong cold front. CRP/ALI will be most impacted with MVFR conditions prevailing beginning 06Z with periods of IFR/LIFR through the overnight. VCT is expected to hover around MVFR/VFR from 05Z-10Z. The cold front will push through South Texas late tonight with strong northerly winds developing in its wake. VFR conditions return by mid- morning for all sites, prevailing through the rest of the period. Strong northerly winds of 15-20 knots with gusts near 30 knots are expected for all sites through the day on Wednesday.

PREV DISCUSSION . /Issued 341 PM CST Tue Jan 26 2021/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Wednesday Night) .

A surface trough continues to meander over the coastal waters generally east of Brownsville this afternoon. Otherwise, a quiet day with above seasonal temps have prevailed across S TX today. An upper low will move across the TX Panhandle overnight and push a cold front across S TX. The front is progged to move into the northwestern CWA around or shortly after midnight. It will continue to move southeast, reaching the coastline sometime between 09Z and 12Z.

Ahead of the front, areas of fog are expected to develop, mainly across the Coastal Bend with possibly some light patchy fog extending northward to Victoria Crossroads. Patchy to areas of sea fog are also expected to develop. However, SSTs have increased to the low 60s, thus am expecting the visibilities to remain mostly above 3SM across the waters. But could see some locations briefly at or below 1SM.

Sufficient moisture combined with a weak embedded short wave aloft and the frontal boundary will bring a slight chance of showers with the front, mainly across the Coastal Waters. Dry air will quickly filter into the area behind the front, ending the fog and any showers that happen to develop.

Breezy north winds will develop behind the front with gusts up to 25- 30mph possible, especially closer to the coast. Am not expecting any fire weather concerns as the Min RH values will occur as the winds diminish.

Highs Wed are forecast to be around 10 degrees cooler than today under partly cloudy skies. Winds will diminish by late Wed afternoon. Reinforcing high pressure with more CAA will build across S TX Wed night leading to lows in the upper 30s to mid 40s Wed night.

LONG TERM (Thursday through Tuesday) .

High pressure will set in Thursday, and temperatures will remain on the cooler side with highs in the 60s across the area. Temperatures will warm up on Friday as warm air advects into the area from Mexico. Moisture brought in from onshore flow from Thursday will combine with WAA, bringing an increase in clouds Friday into Saturday. Southerly winds at the surface will draw in warmer air from Mexico Friday, and start a heating trend ahead of the next cold front. Highs on Friday will be in the low to mid 70s. Highs on Saturday will be much warmer with temperatures in the mid 70s to mid 80s.

The next cold front is expected Saturday night in to Sunday as a mid- upper level trough lifts into the Great Plains. Still not expecting precipitation with this front as PWAT values continue to come in too low to support a decent chance of precipitation. There are discrepancies between the models on how fast this front will push through, but all models have the front offshore by Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be slightly cooler Sunday as northerly winds kick in behind the front and bring in cool dry air. Monday's highs will be even cooler with temperatures in the low 70s expected inland and upper 60s expected along the coast.

High pressure will shift east overnight Monday into early Tuesday. As this happens, winds will become southeasterly and bring warm air into the region once more. Highs on Tuesday will be in the low 70s along the Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads, warming into the mid to upper 70s for areas in and west of the Coastal Plains.

MARINE .

Weak onshore flow will continue this evening ahead of a cold front. Patchy to areas of fog and a few showers will be possible over the bays and coastal waters tonight ahead of the front. The front is expected move through the waters after midnight with moderate to strong north winds developing late tonight into Wednesday morning, reaching Small Craft Advisory levels by early morning. A few gusts to gale will be possible, mainly across the offshore waters. Winds gradually diminish Wednesday afternoon, then restrengthen to moderate levels late Wednesday night as reinforcing high pressure builds across the area.

Moderate flow will continue Thursday and transition to weak onshore flow Friday. Winds will increase to moderate to strong on Saturday ahead of another front. Small Craft Advisory conditions will be likely on Saturday morning. Moderate southerly winds are expected by Saturday evening, becoming weak to moderate on Sunday.
