New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE

SHORT TERM
(This evening through 12Z Friday)
Issued at 247 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

Surface high pressure along the eastern seaboard all the way to the central GOM and a ridge extending upward across H75 and H5 dominate the area's weather bringing sunshine and very nice afternoon temperatures that are about normal for this time of year. The upper ridge will gradually move east beign followed by a weak upper trough with a surface low that moves across the central midwest into the Ohio valley by Friday. The influence of the upper low will be very weak, but the surface low will draw some little bits of moisture into the area, bringing a non-zero chance for showers into the picture. The big thing to look out for tonight is radiational fog. Conditions are somewhat favorable, but any bit of wind will negate that. Fog is mentioned in the 18Z TAF package, especially along the I-10/12 corridor, but will pass the need for Fog headlines off to the evening shift.

From a forecasting standpoint, went with NBM for temperature grids.
We've warmed enough now that the cold air drainage we sometimes account for is not an issue.

LONG TERM
(Friday through Monday night)
Issued at 247 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

A broad longwave trough axis will be the dominant feature over the eastern half of the CONUS from Friday through Sunday. Deep layer northwest flow will usher in a much drier airmass. This drier air will combine with increasing negative vorticity advection to keep skies clear through the weekend. Additionally, these clear and dry conditions will support a larger diurnal range over the weekend.
Overall spread between the models in terms of temperatures remains small this weekend, and have stuck with the NBM deterministic output from Friday through Sunday. Highs will warm into the 70s each day and lows will dip into the 40s.

Monday will see the northwest flow pattern come to an end as the trough pulls to the east and a fairly strong longwave upper level ridge axis builds into the region. Beneath this ridge, increasing onshore flow on the western side of a surface high centered over Florida will usher in a more humid and warmer airmass. Temperatures are expected to be a good 10 degrees warmer than average with highs near 80 and lows near 60. Have continued to stick with the NBM deterministic output in the extended period as model spread remains limited. The increasing humidity will support the development of a scattered low level cumulus field, but the subsidence aloft will induce a strong mid-level capping inversion. As a result, the region will continue to remain rain free on Monday. Another concern heading into next Monday night will be the potential for some advection fog to develop as the warm and humid airmass moves over the cooler nearshore waters. PG

AVIATION
(18Z TAFS)
Issued at 1125 AM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

Terminals currently VFR and should remain that way through the late evening hours. However, beyond about 08z Wednesday, there will be the potential for patches or areas of radiation type fog, with the greatest threat at terminals along the I-10/12 corridor (KBTR/KHDC/KASD/KGPT), but could happen at any of the terminals.
If fog does develop at/near a terminal, it will produce LIFR or lower visibilities. Conditions should improve rapidly by 14-15z Wednesday.

MARINE
Issued at 247 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024

A couple areas of potential concern for mariners during this forecast period. Could be a period of Small Craft Exercise Caution level winds late Wednesday night, but a stronger signal for Exercise Caution, or potentially Small Craft Advisory level conditions Thursday afternoon into Friday morning, associated with the frontal passage. An additional surge of drier air and potentially a bit stronger winds is also possible Friday night/Saturday morning, primarily over the outer open waters.
