DISCUSSION.

See aviation discussion below for the 00Z TAFs.

AVIATION.

Conditions will fluctuate between VFR and MVFR this evening, becoming primarily MVFR tonight. Could see IFR conditions at times by early Fri morning. MVFR conditions are expected to prevail through much of Fri. A few light showers moving northeast this evening, should dissipated over the next hour or two. Shower and thunderstorm activity will be on the increase Fri ahead of a cold front. Some storms may become strong to severe Fri afternoon with large hail and damaging winds being the main threat. The cold front is expected to move across S TX Fri night into Sat with additional convection expected with the frontal bdry.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 347 PM CDT Thu Apr 2 2020/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Friday Night) .

Scattered convection over the Victoria Crossroads associated with the mid level short wave trough will move northeast into southeast Texas by this evening. NAM/SREF show another weak impulse in the southwest flow aloft moving across the northern part of the area this evening. Will keep a mention of isolated showers over the coastal plains for tonight.

Although southerly low level flow will not be strong tonight into Friday, moisture will continue to gradually increase with precipitable water values up to 1.7-1.8 inches by Friday afternoon. Air mass will become moderately unstable over the northern Brush Country into the Hill Country by 18Z Friday with models showing SBCAPE from 1500-2500 J/kg. Models are in agreement with a short wave trough moving out of northeast Mexico into this region around 18Z. May see convection form with this short wave trough in the early afternoon over the Brush Country and quickly move toward the Victoria Crossroads through the afternoon. With adequate deep layer shear, some of the storms could become severe.

After this activity moves out of the area, additional storms will be forming near the Hill Country in advance of the cold front as a strong upper level jet moves out of the Texas Big Bend into south-central Texas. Hi-res models show this activity moving southeast as the cold front moves into the region overnight. Storms will continue to have to potential for severe with large hail and damaging winds. Some concern the front may push ahead of the convection during the night which would limit severe wind threat. Went close to the CONSShort model for timing of the front that will move through the coastal region into the coastal waters before daybreak Saturday. The higher resolution models (ARW/NAM) show the front moving in faster and stronger overnight Friday night than the CONSShort. The CONSShort was a compromise for minimum temperatures Friday night between MAV/MET MOS guidance.

LONG TERM (Saturday through Thursday) .

PWATS of 1.7-2.0 inches is prog for Saturday ahead and behind the next cold front. Models bring the cold front through South Texas Saturday morning and stall it just offshore in the afternoon/evening. Timing is still off between models with the NAM typically being the faster of the models. Would not be surprised to see if activity developed along the front across Central Texas aids in the faster propagation southward to push offshore before noon on Saturday. But overall, with the lower levels pretty saturated and an overrunning pattern in place, will continue high chances for showers and embedded thunderstorms Saturday. Locally heavy rainfall will remain possible for Saturday.

The front will gradually weaken through Sunday and the surface high pressure will begin to shift east allowing for easterly flow to return to South Texas. A brief lull in activity should take place Saturday night, but rain chances will continue into Sunday, with focus shifted more across the western half of the CWA, toward the Brush Country.

South Texas then becomes situated in the middle of mid-level ridging across the Gulf waters and mid-level troughing centered over California. This will keep rain chances on and off through the week, with best chances for rain to be kept well inland across the Brush Country and northern Coastal Plains, while locations toward the coast and over the waters should remain on the dry side of things. That said, will continue isolated to scattered showers with isolated thunderstorms daily through the end of the week.

Models hint at another front just outside the current long-term period that may lead to drier conditions.

As for temperatures, cooled temperatures for Saturday, although temperatures may not be cool enough if the NAM comes in as correct. NAM is dropping daytime temperatures into the 50s area-wide. For now, will cool daytime temps into the 70s for most locations. Could see temperatures even cooler in the 60s given the increased rain chances and thick cloud coverage. Otherwise, with onshore flow to return quickly, temperatures will warm through the week, with highs reaching into the upper 80s for the Brush Country by Monday, then 90s by Tuesday/Wednesday.

MARINE .

A weak to moderate onshore flow will continue over the coastal waters tonight into Friday with the winds slightly stronger/SCEC over the offshore waters tonight. The onshore flow will weaken Friday night as a cold front moves through south Texas during the overnight hours. The front is expected to move into the near shore waters by daybreak Saturday. Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will arrive with the front late Friday night.

Showers and thunderstorms will continue Saturday as the front stalls over the waters. Northeast winds behind the front will strengthen to moderate levels Saturday night, with Small Craft Exercise Caution headlines possible. Weak to moderate onshore flow will return Sunday afternoon. Slight chances for showers and thunderstorms will continue through early next week, especially toward the coast.
