SHORT TERM
(This evening through Thursday Night)
Issued at 258 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

The warm, humid, and mostly cloudy regime continues today thanks to moist onshore LL flow along with tropical Pacific oriented UL moisture brought to you by SW flow aloft. The flow aloft is being driven by a modestly amplified pattern thanks to a mid/upper ridge centered over the W Gulf of Mexico and a deep layer trough over western CONUS. Temperatures are generally in the low/mid 80s with dew points averaging around 70F. Though clouds may break up somewhat this afternoon, the general outlook for sky conditions through tomorrow morning is mostly cloudy. Tonight's lows are expected to be in the upper 60s to low 70s. The development of low clouds is likely. Patchy fog is possible.

Early today, widely scattered rain showers developed near the coast and offshore. This is due to subtle vort maxes embedded in the flow aloft. Most guidance shows another weak vort max moving off the Texas Coast tomorrow morning. Therefore, we have added some low PoPs near the coast and offshore between 4AM and 9AM.
Shower activity, if any, will be isolated to widely scattered. The mid/upper synoptic pattern becomes more zonal on Thursday with lower RHs in the mid and upper levels. This may allow for more sunshine than experienced today. Therefore, temperatures are forecast to be a few degrees warmer tomorrow with inland highs in the mid/upper 80s (around 80 at the coast). With dew points around 70F, heat index values are expected to be in the low 90s. So a bit sweaty for your Thursday.

LONG TERM
(Friday through next Tuesday)
Issued at 258 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Weak, stalled frontal boundary or outflow in, or near our nw zones, should linger around that general vicinity on Friday. This feature along with the seabreeze and weak impulses moving overhead may allow for isolated-scattered shra/tstms during the afternoon and evening hours.

On Saturday, surface high pressure building southward through the Plains should give the front a push later in the day and overnight and across the remainder of Southeast Texas. PW's (1.7-2.0") pooling ahead of the feature, in combination with a stronger upper level disturbance approaching the area should lead to widespread shower and thunderstorm development. Some guidance is depicting a fairly diffluent flow aloft Saturday night across northern parts of the region...possibly leading to some locally heavy rainfall if and where this sets up. Currently, most deterministic data suggests areas north of a Brenham-Trinity line might be the place to look.
Some are depicting 2-6" amounts Sat evening and overnight. Too early for much in the way of confidence, but something we'll need to keep an eye on.

Guidance is back on track to showing most of the rain ending Sunday morning as the front pushes offshore. A few earlier runs indicated the potential for some lingering shra into Sunday afternoon ahead of the H85/H7 front. Time will tell.

More seasonable wx is then anticipated into early next week. Return flow sets back up along with a corresponding warming/modifying trend toward midweek. 47



AVIATION
(18Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1236 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

MVFR cigs are gradually becoming more low-end VFR. Southeasterly winds around 10-13kts and lower end VFR cigs are expected to prevail through the rest of the day. Cigs, and some cases vis, will decrease this evening into overnight, with widespread MVFR and IFR conditions expected tonight and tomorrow morning. Cigs/vis should gradually improve by mid/late morning tomorrow.
