SHORT TERM
(Today through Tuesday Night)
Issued at 252 AM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Ridging over the Desert Southwest/Texas should continue to dominate the weather pattern early this week. Abundant moisture and weak capping may allow for isolated showers/storms to develop with afternoon heating, though again coverage will be limited, such that most of the area should remain dry and rain-free. Areas south of I- 10 will have the greatest chances of receiving rainfall during this period. Minor coastal flooding continues to impact areas across the Bolivar Peninsula, therefore a Coastal Flood Advisory remain in effect until 7 PM Tonight. Continue to exercise caution while traversing these areas to allow waters to recede from any impacted roadways.

Highs will still reach the 80s to upper 90s Today and Tuesday with lows in the 70s to lower 80s near the coast. NAEFS/GEFS 500mb heights still remain above the 90th Climatological percentile during this period. Similar persistence can be seen in the ensemble 850mb temperatures, suggesting that heat impacts will be relatively similar as well. Heat indices are expected to reach 101-107 during the afternoon hours, similar to that of yesterday. While a few isolated spots could reach 108 or more, it won't be widespread enough to warrant a Heat Advisory for Today. Tuesday also appears to be borderline as well, though slightly warmer. The heat risk through Tuesday will be moderate (3/5) for most people participating in low- impact, leisurely outdoor activities. However, those participating in strenuous outdoor activities may feel major (4/5) heat stress. If you plain to spent time outdoors, remember to drink plenty of fluids, wear lightweight clothing and avoid strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest part of the day.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through Sunday)
Issued at 252 AM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Summer will persist through the long term! A strong ridge of high pressure has settled in over the Southern Plains helping to keep Southeast Texas hot with only slight chances of rainfall. Thanks to low level moisture and daytime heating, there will be a daily chance of some sea breeze induced showers and thunderstorms mainly along and south of I-10. These storms shouldn't produce more than a quick 0.5" of rain before moving further inland or dissipating.
The main weather story through next weekend will be the potentially dangerous heat that is building across the region.
Afternoon high temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90s inland with the immediate coast staying in the upper 80s to low 90s. Add in the humidity, afternoon max heat indices will be in the 105-110 degree range through the weekend. Heat Advisory will be likely for some or all of the area at times. There won't be much of a cool down either during the overnight hours either with minimum temperatures only in the upper 70s to low 80s for much of the region.

AVIATION
(18Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1233 PM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024

VFR prevailing through the rest of today. VCSH possible this afternoon with the sea breeze. Any activity should wane by evening hours. MVFR CIGS develop at terminals generally west of I-45 corridor overnight tonight. Brief IFR CIGs possible from around 12Z to 14Z for those sites as well. Expect improvement to VFR by mid to late morning.

MARINE
Issued at 252 AM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024

Generally light to occasionally moderate onshore flow and low seas will persist through the upcoming weekend. There will a slight chance of isolated showers or storms each morning and afternoon. Tides today and tomorrow will again be around 3 to 3.5ft above MLLW, so some minor coastal flooding is possible - mainly near along the more susceptible sections of the Bolivar Peninsula. So, the Coastal Flood Advisory remain in effect for there. The high risk of strong rip currents is also expected to continue through the next several days.
