SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Friday night)
Issued at 324 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

A very similar pattern will continue across the forecast area during the period. High pressure at the surface will ridge across from the east and lower pressure and any surface boundaries hanging up to the northwest. Therefore, warm and muggy conditions will continue with the southerly flow off the Gulf.

Skies will remain mostly cloudy, however, not really expecting any significant or widespread shower activity. A series of vort maxes will move overhead in the southwest flow, yet, enough capping should hold to preclude the shower activity.

Of other note, with some relaxing of the surface winds overnight, patchy fog will be possible. At this point, the boundary layer winds will stay up enough above the surface to keep some mixing going and keep any widespread dense fog from forming.

LONG TERM
(Saturday through next Tuesday)
Issued at 324 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Little change of thinking in the longterm forecast with the morning suite of guidance. Models now indicate a series of weak shortwave pulses sliding across the southern US, rather than one main stronger and slower moving pulse. This doesn't appear to impact timing or rain chances from previous thinking, though. The first of the two waves arrives to southeast Texas on Friday morning, working to break down high pressure entrenched over the GoM. Rain chances increase Saturday morning (start of the longterm period) with the nearing of the main shortwave trof and an attendant cold front.

The front will slowly drift southward from the north and west on Saturday with PoPs increasing slowly but markedly into Sunday when the front crosses the region. Forecast QPF Saturday and Sunday has remained similar to previous thinking: generally 0.50 to 1.00 inches or less.

The front slides off to the east into Monday with high pressure building in thereafter. Low rain chances are expected Tuesday and Thursday, however a few weak showers will be possible during the day Wednesday with a brief period of decreasing heights aloft overtop a pooling moist airmass.

Slightly above temperatures Saturday will give way to cooler temps on Sunday due to cool airmass moving in and cloud cover/rain cooled air. Rebounding temps take place Monday with temps in the mid 70s and near 80 on Tuesday. Temps will inch upwards each day Wednesday and Thursday.

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1224 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Modest southeast winds will continue to bring in moisture through the afternoon hours with clouds developing below a cap at borderline MVFR/VFR levels.

During the night, winds will decrease at the surface with good moisture in place. Low ceilings will again develop and lower through MVFR to IFR levels before daybreak. The overall gradient and winds are expected to be a little weaker than last night, and therefore expect some visibility restrictions in the 2 to 5 mile range from patchy fog.

MARINE
Issued at 324 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

A similar pattern through the end of the week with a surface high off the Florida Atlantic coast ridging into the coastal waters with lower pressure across the Southern Plains. This will result in light to occasionally modest southerly winds into the beginning of the weekend.

A surface front will enter the region over the weekend with an increase in shower activity.

This front will move across the coastal waters late Saturday night into Sunday morning with winds becoming offshore that will persist into early next week.
