SHORT TERM
(Today through Monday Night)
Issued at 218 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

As you walk out the door this morning, you might think to yourself "is it just me or does it feel more humid today?"...and the answer to that question is a resounding YES. Persistent onshore flow and elevated moisture advection as surface low pressure develops in the Northern Plains has led to dew points climbing into the low to mid 60s. The low to mid 60s are also the temperatures you'll feel early this morning. Going into this afternoon, ridging aloft builds back in. High pressure at 850mb pushes out further to the east allowing for southwest flow aloft to return a few thousand feet above the surface. This leads to an increase in 850mb temperatures to 17-20°C range, which is around the 90th percentile. Lingering clouds, breezy winds, and elevated moisture (PW values around 1.2"-1.4") will help to regulate temperatures to only the low to mid 80s this afternoon.
Even though PW values will be around or just over the 75th percentile (~1.32"), a subsidence inversion (cap) from ~900-850mb and the lack of a sufficient lifting mechanism will keep rain chances at nil.

Ridge axis pushes out to the east on Monday as an upper level low moves over the Four Corners region. The approach of this upper low begins to induce southwesterly flow aloft on late Monday afternoon.
Pair the more favorable path of PVA along with PW values remaining in the 1.2"-1.4" range and we have persistent broken to overcast cloud cover lingering throughout the day. The capping inversion also remains in place on Monday, so rain chances remain close to zero through the afternoon. Temperatures should still manage to top out mainly in the low 80s on Monday. Going into the late afternoon, a fairly robust LLJ (35-45 kts) begins to develop over the Brazos Valley. Elevated southeasterly winds around 20 mph sustained with higher gusts will continue into the overnight hours. Elevated winds combined with a blanket of cloud cover is essentially the complete opposite of the max radiational cooling equation. As a result, I actually bumped temperatures up a little bit above guidance to reflect lows mainly in the low 70s. It's worth mentioning that the previously mentioned LLJ develops in response to deepening surface low pressure in the Central Plains. This parent low does attempt to send a cold front our way, but it'll still be well to our west by the end of the short term period.

LONG TERM
(Tuesday through Saturday)
Issued at 218 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Temperatures will be on the warm side Tuesday through Friday with readings looking just a couple degrees cooler heading on into Saturday. A series of weak shortwaves/disturbances will be moving eastward across the state during this time period and could end up giving some of our area possible showers and/or thunderstorms. The first chance could come late Monday night and Tuesday across our far northern counties, but the bulk of activity is expected to stay to our north and west. The entire area might end up with better chances at the end of the week and on into the weekend with the help of a cold front that edges into the area and stalls. This forecast package does not have area temperatures cooling down until after this package...into Saturday night (lows back into the 50s/60s) and Sunday (highs back down into the 70s)...with the possible development aloft of a cooler west to northwest flow.

Before this possible cooldown, look for daily highs generally in a mid to upper 80s range (might hit the 90 degree mark in a few spots on Wednesday and/or Thursday) and lows mostly in the 70s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 1200 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Obs already beginning their annoying habit of teetering on the MVFR/VFR edge. Plenty of SCT/BKNs around 030 that may have to be amended based on how much/little cloud deck forms up at a given terminal. Improvement to VFR later in the morning, while gusty southeast winds return. Continue the cycle again tonight, with MVFR CIGs higher confidence with another day of onshore flow deepening moisture.

MARINE
Issued at 218 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Elevated south to southeast winds will persist into the middle of the upcoming week with winds and seas occasionally requiring caution or advisory flags, especially at times on Monday and Tuesday. Lowering onshore winds and seas are expected Wednesday through Thursday night.

HYDROLOGY
Issued at 218 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Due to the rainfall from the previous week and its subsequent runoff, a couple of River Flood Warnings remain in effect as of early Sunday morning. The Navasota River at Normangee (NGET2) has already crested but will remain in minor flood stage through late Monday night/early Tuesday morning. The Trinity River at Riverside (RVRT2) remains on an upward trend and has been outperforming its forecast as of recently leading to an earlier than anticipated issuance of a River Flood Warning for this site. It is forecast to remain in minor flood stage well into the work week. The River Flood Warning for the Trinity River at Moss Bluff (MBFT2) was cancelled late Saturday night as the downward trend in action stage continues.
There are also multiple other gauges either in or forecast to crest into action stage along the San Jacinto, Brazos, and San Bernard Rivers.
