DISCUSSION.

Updated for 12Z Aviation Discussion.

AVIATION.

Ceilings continue to bounce from MVFR to VFR this morning as a low cloud deck drifts over the area. This is expected to lift by mid morning today as winds pick up. Breezy conditions are likely this afternoon and evening. Winds will become light to moderate overnight. A cold front will approach the area from the north early Monday morning, leading to an increase in winds and cloud cover, with MVFR conditions possible by 11Z for VCT and COT.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 311 AM CDT Sun Sep 27 2020/

SHORT TERM (Today through Monday) .

Quiet weather will continue today and tonight, though winds will increase to moderate this afternoon. Low clouds this morning should clear today, so temperatures will continue to be warm both today and tonight.

A cold front will move through the area Monday. Model solutions differ slightly in timing by a few hours, but it looks like the front will reach the northern Brush Country by the morning and reach the coast by midday. The high temperature for Monday will likely be early in the day, before the front brings in cooler and drier air. Winds will be breezy to windy Monday as the front passes through he area, especially over the waters.

Moisture will continue to be limited ahead of the front however, with PWATs near 1 to 1.2 inches, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms along the front are possible. Chances for rain will quickly end as the front moves offshore early Monday afternoon.

LONG TERM (Monday Night through Saturday) .

By the start of the long term period, the cold front we have been advertising over the last few days will have already pushed offshore leaving much drier air in it's wake. PWATs will drop off pretty quick behind the boundary with values falling to around 0.5" or less by Tuesday morning. Moderate to strong northerly winds behind the front will begin to subside throughout the day on Tuesday. Overall, a pleasant week is in store behind the cold front with light and variable winds and dry conditions dominating the region as we remain on the eastern periphery of an upper level ridge through the weekend. Models are hinting at a weak boundary drifting towards South Texas near the end of the work week but without any moisture available, this wouldn't be anything more than a slight wind shift. Look for winds to become more onshore as we head into next weekend.

Clear skies and light winds early this week will allow for overnight lows to drop into the 50s across inland areas to the low 60s along the coast. High temps on Tuesday will struggle to reach the mid 80s. As we head through the week, we will slowly warm back up with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the low to mid 60s.

MARINE .

Southerly flow today will increase to moderate this afternoon and evening. A cold front will push through the waters Monday afternoon, bringing strong northerly winds and a chance for some isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms. The chances for showers and thunderstorms diminish by Monday night. Strong northerly winds will persist overnight Monday before slowly weakening throughout the day Tuesday. SCA conditions are likely Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon. Opted to hold off on a gale watch for now as it appears we will only occasionally gust to gale force. However, we will keep an eye on trends and may upgrade if needed. Winds will begin to subside late Tuesday into Wednesday with light and variable winds in place through the remainder of the work week. Onshore flow resumes heading into next weekend. Monday.
