light onshore flow and low seas will continue through Thursday. The onshore flow begins to strengthen Thursday night into Friday morning ahead of some approaching weak disturbances. The winds will strengthen to around 15 to 25 knots with occasion higher gusts, so small craft may will likely need to exercise caution as early as Thursday night and small craft advisories may be needed heading into the weekend.

New AVIATION

SHORT TERM
(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 246 AM CDT Tue Apr 23 2024

An upper ridge gradually builds/subsidence increases over the region during the period. PWAT values will remain slightly above normal over the CWA during the period. Select NAM deterministic soundings suggest a lowering of CIN values during the afternoon hours today/Wednesday, yet the lack of sufficient lift, and the building upper ridge, will preclude convective development. No fire weather concerns since minimum relative humidity values will remain elevated.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday night through next Monday)
Issued at 246 AM CDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Key Messages:

▶ Minor to moderate risk of heat-related impacts Saturday as feels- like temperatures flirt around 100

An upper-level ridge will continue building into the region Wednesday and Thursday. By Thursday night, a series of mid-level troughs will dig into the Four Corners region and traverse across the Great Plains. This will eject several shortwaves across the region late this week into this weekend. Despite the presence of the shortwaves and elevated PWAT values, the lack of available lift across the region with a strong cap will keep rain chances low below 20%.

The biggest story within the long term will be the warm temperatures. Daytime highs late this work week will range from the mid 80s near the coast to the mid 90s across the Brush Country. By this weekend, daytime highs will flirt with the 100 degree mark across the Brush Country while coastal areas climb into the mid to upper 80s. When you combine the moisture across the region with the warm temperatures, heat index values are expected to climb into the upper 90s near the coast with areas within the Brush Country and Coastal Plains have a low to medium chance of going over 100 degrees. Overnight lows this week and into this weekend will remain mild with lows ranging from the low to mid 70s.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1243 PM CDT Tue Apr 23 2024

MVFR ceilings will persist through most of the afternoon. By early evening, a brief period of VFR conditions will commence before prevailing MVFR conditions develop over all terminals around 01-06Z. There will be a low chance for IFR conditions for ALI during the Wednesday morning hours between 08-14Z. Some periods of patchy fog are also possible for VCT, but visibility should not fall below 6 SM as southeasterly winds will remain elevated between 5-10 knots.



MARINE
Issued at 246 AM CDT Tue Apr 23 2024

Weak to moderate onshore flow over the coastal waters today through Wednesday. Weak to moderate southeast flow Thursday is expected to strengthen to over 20 knots Thursday and continue impacting our local waters through Saturday. Winds are expected to weaken back to more moderate levels Sunday into early next week.
With strong winds most of the week, there is a high chance for Small Craft Advisory conditions.
