SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Tuesday night)
Issued at 305 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Breezy southerly flow continues to stream low level moisture into the region this afternoon with dewpoints now consistently in the low to mid 60s area wide. Initial forecast concern in the short term is the potential for patchy fog early tomorrow morning. Winds are expected to relax somewhat late tonight with the lightest winds expected across lower acadiana where the highest potential for fog will exist. Any fog that develops isn't expected to become dense and should be quick to dissipate after sunrise.

Conditions Monday will be very similar to today with breezy southerly winds developing by late morning as the region remains sandwiched between high pressure over Florida and a developing cyclone along the Lee side of the Colorado Rockies. This low will drag a frontal boundary across Central and East Texas Tuesday keeping winds elevated and flirting with wind advisory criteria although guidance is a few knots lower this afternoon compared to yesterday. There is better inter model consistency this afternoon in the vast majority of the energy associated with the front remaining north of the region. A stray shower or storm can't be completely ruled out across interior Southeast Texas and central Louisiana Tuesday afternoon and SPC has highlighted these areas in a marginal risk of severe weather for any storms that do manage to develop.

The boundary will not actually make it through the area and continued southerly flow will gradually diminish Tuesday night as the frontal boundary departs to the Northeast.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through next Saturday)
Issued at 305 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Warm and humid conditions are expected to prevail through the latter part of the week as southerly winds persist with surface high pressure to the east of the area. The region will remain beneath a generally southwest flow aloft as the majority of the stronger shortwaves will be confined to the northern half of the US, with a weaker southern stream trough noted over NW Mexico. Meanwhile, a frontal boundary associated with surface low pressure over the midwest will stay north of the area.

Moisture will be plentiful, with PWATs peaking between 1.6 and 1.8 inches from Wednesday into Thursday. However, rain chances will be low with limited to weak forcing over the region. The best potential for possibly an isolated shower or storm will be on Thursday as the trough that was over NW Mexico progresses east, weakening as it moves over the NW Gulf coast. Better rain chances are expected to arrive by the weekend as a cold front finally moves south into the area, slowly making its way toward the coast.

Above normal temperatures are expected to prevail through at least Saturday, with highs into the middle (and possibly upper) 80s each afternoon while lows only fall back into the upper 60s/around 70.
NBM temperatures hint at the possibility of more seasonable temperatures returning by the end of the weekend (assuming the anticipated front finally moves through the area).

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 603 PM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Breezy southerly winds this afternoon and early evening before lessening later in the evening. VFR conditions will prevail through the evening with SCT to BKN fair weather cu and SCT high clouds. Intermittent MVFR ceilings are expected to develop early Monday morning with brief IFR possible along with the possibility of patchy fog should winds fall below about 6 knots. Any fog that develops should dissipate by 14Z with VFR conditions to prevail thereafter.
