SHORT TERM
(Today through Wednesday Night)
Issued at 314 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

Broad mid-upper ridging across sw/s parts of the country will dominate regional wx keeping temps slightly above seasonable norms.
Didn`t make any changes to the inherited heat advisory today.
Continued warm tonight with lows 75-82 and on Wed with highs again in the 90s.

In regards to rain chances, there are isolated-scattered showers beginning to show up on the radar scope in the Matagorda Bay area and adjacent coastal waters. This is generally where higher PW`s will be be situated this morning. GOES Total PW product loop shows a tongue of drier air trying to filter in further to the east. This, combined with subsidence should keep activity elsewhere isolated at best around peak heating. Things get a touch more interesting Wed.
Ridging expands a bit further northward into the Rockies, putting us in more of a northerly flow aloft. Guidance indicates we might see an embedded vort lobe try to sneak into the area late in the day tomorrow. A mix of guidance (ECMWF and some of the HRRR members)
suggest the potential for some sct tstms to develop and sag into portions of the area late in the afternoon/evening. Others aren`t as bullish with subsidence winning that battle. But it`s worth keeping an eye on considering distinct inverted-v fcst soundings indicating the potential for gusty winds/downbursts should any stronger cells emerge.

LONG TERM
(Thursday through Monday)
Issued at 314 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

The long term forecast will be largely be dominated by ridging spanning the Southern CONUS, which will result hot conditions reminiscent of the typical Texas Summer. On Thursday, the upper level ridge will be centered about the Desert Southwest over Western TX/Southern NM. Though, ensemble means suggest that the midlevel ridge will weaken during this period, allowing for weak impulses to round the peripheral of the ridge and pass over SE Texas. PWs in excess of 1.75" indicate plentiful moisture will be available, and weak capping should further support the develop of afternoon showers/thunderstorms with daytime heating. Global ensembles and the latest suite of deterministic model runs indicate that the midlevel ridge will amplify over the Southeast CONUS/ArkLaTex Region heading into the weekend. 850mb temperatures are progged to gradually creep up as well, all be it very gradually, which is reflected in the upward trend of multi-run max temperature values. Despite laking forcing aloft, sea breeze support looks more favorable on Sunday/Monday, which could help initiate afternoon showers/storms along the sea breeze. On a more minor note, NASA`s GMAO suggests the possibility of a Saharan Dust Plume passing across SE Texas on portions of Friday/Saturday.
This may result in hazy-white sky conditions during this period.

By in large, we`re still looking at hot conditions through the beginning of next week, with highs in the upper 80s near the coast to upper 90s inland. Overnight lows will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Heat indices during the afternoon will range from around 100-108 at their peak, with isolated higher values possible. The Heat Risk for those participating in leisurely outdoor activities will be Moderate (level 3/5) each day. WBGT values suggest that those participating in strenuous outdoor activities may feel Major (level 4/5) heat stress during the hottest parts of the day. Heat Advisories could be warranted during this period. Regardless, the oppressive nature of Texas summers still warrants the need to practice common heat safety tactics. Remember to drink plenty of fluids, wear lightweight/loose fitting cloths and take breaks inside away from the sun.

AVIATION
(09Z TAF Amendment)
Issued at 314 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

With the exception of some spotty MVFR ceilings in the 12-16z timeframe, VFR conditions should prevail. Can`t totally rule out an isolated late afternoon tstm CXO southward in the late afternoon, but chances much too low to include the mention in the TAFs.

MARINE
Issued at 314 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

Light to moderate onshore winds and seas of 2-4 feet will prevail across the SE Texas coast into the weekend. Isolated showers and storms will be possible daily. Tide levels will also remain elevated over the next several days.
