New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(Today through Saturday)
Issued at 110 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Deep moisture continues to stream into the region today, characterized by PWAT values of 1.75 - 2". As a result, showers continue to develop across South Texas. While these are producing heavy rain, they are short lived. The best chance for continued precipitation through this evening will be across Brush Country with lesser chances towards the Coastal Plains and Coastal Bend area. Isolated to scattered storms will continue to be possible area wide through Saturday.

The Coastal Flood Warning remains in effect through this evening.
A few locations continue to see moderate flooding as of this afternoon, though a transition to minor flooding is expected area wide tonight, which would warrant a Coastal Flood Advisory through the remainder of the short term period. The rip current risk will remain high through the short term period.

LONG TERM
(Saturday night through next Thursday)
Issued at 110 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

- Monitoring the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico for potential tropical development

- Dangerous heat returns with a moderate risk for heat-related impacts

A renewed fetch of deep tropical moisture will move into South Texas Saturday night with PWAT values nearing 2.5 inches across southern portions of the area and 2.25 inches elsewhere. This will be associated with a tropical disturbance in the Bay of Campeche.
The NHC currently gives this a 50% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone in the next two days and a 60% chance over the next 7 days.

Should this system develop, it will likely head towards the Mexico Coast. However, with a broad area of high pressure developing over the region, this should help to keep the majority of the impacts south of the region, with perhaps the exception of more widespread rain chances. Most of the guidance currently keeps the brunt of the precipitation over Deep South Texas and Northeastern Mexico with much less impressive amounts across our region.

Just how far north this precipitation makes it will also have an impact on our cloud cover and thus our temperatures. If the brunt of the precipitation remains south, then dangerous heat will likely develop next week with heat indices exceeding 110 degrees for many locations during much of the week.

There remains a lot of uncertainty with the forecast beyond this weekend, but as the system moves over the Gulf this weekend, things should start to become more clear.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 559 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

VFR conditions will prevail through the TAF cycle though periods of MVFR ceilings and visibility will be possible between 09Z and 14Z. Winds will continue to diminish, becoming light and variable overnight, then generally east/northeast and light Saturday.

MARINE
Issued at 110 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Wave heights continue to gradually subside, but will remain rough into this evening. Small craft advisory conditions are expected to end by 7PM this evening, so the Small Craft Advisory will likely be allowed to expire at that time. Expect a light to moderate onshore flow to persist through the weekend. Scattered showers will remain in the forecast through early next week. Weak to moderate onshore flow is expected through next week.
