SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Thursday night)
Issued at 214 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

Mostly cloudy skies are expected to persist across the eastern two- thirds of the local area for the rest of this afternoon and evening.
For areas along the Rio Grande and southern Edwards Plateau, breaks in the cloud coverage are likely to continue from time to time throughout the day. This will allow highs temperatures to reach the low to mid 90s there while mid to upper 80s over locations to the east.

Can't rule out a light shower or two across the Rio Grande and Coastal Plains areas through the middle of this afternoon. Then later this afternoon into early evening, there is the potential for isolated showers and thunderstorms to develop across the Mexican mountains and move over parts of the Rio Grande especially over the central and southern parts of Val Verde County. However, convective activity could spread to nearby locations along the Rio Grande.
Showers and storms come to an end late this evening. Overnight lows are forecast to range from the upper 60s to low 70s.

The day on Thursday starts cloudy and muggy for most locations.
Patchy fog is expected for the morning commute for areas along and east of Highway 83. High temperatures are forecast to reach the upper 80s to low 90s along and east of Highway 281 with highs in the mid to upper 90s along the Rio Grande.

As the day progresses, the weather conditions will begin change around mid to late afternoon as isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms develop over parts of the Rio Grande and Hill Country as a dry-line sits across west Texas and a cold front slowly pushes over central Texas. Then, later in the afternoon into the evening hours, storms are likely to grow in scale with the potential of becoming strong to severe for portions of the southern Edwards Plateau, and the Hill Country as several upper level disturbances travel over central Texas/Hill Country. Main threats with stronger storms are large to very large hail and damaging wind gusts. Can't rule out localized heavy rain over a few spots.

This activity should come to an end by late Thursday night (midnight). Overnight lows are forecast to range from the low 60s across the Hill Country to low 70s across the Coastal Plains.

LONG TERM
(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 214 PM CDT Wed Apr 17 2024

A cold front will likely be just north of the region beginning early Friday morning. The southward progress of the front during the daytime hours remains in question, with most of the models keeping south central Texas in moist, southeasterly flow in the low-levels.
With plenty of zonal flow aloft to our north and the opportunity for some lee-side troughing, will keep temperatures on the warm side for now, with highs in the low/mid 90s along the Rio Grande to the upper 70s/near 80 in the Hill Country where the front may impact temperatures. Some weak upper disturbances moving in from the west will bring a low chance for afternoon showers and storms to the Rio Grande plains and southern Edwards Plateau. Low rain chances will then spread eastward into the Hill Country Friday night into Saturday morning as the front should begin a slow southward push. A stronger southward push of the front is anticipated during the daytime hours on Saturday as a reinforcing shot of surface high pressure moves southward through the plains states. The slow moving frontal boundary along with some continued upper disturbances moving in from the west will result in increasing rain chances across all areas as we head into Saturday evening and early Sunday morning. Moisture pooling along the boundary will send precipitable water values into the 1.5-2" range across a large portion of the region. The setup appears to favor some locally heavy rainfall during the Saturday evening/ early Sunday morning period, with guidance suggesting the Hill Country, I-35 corridor mainly from San Antonio northward will be favored for locally heavy rainfall. Would not be too surprised to see some 2-3" rainfall amounts along and north of a Fredericksburg to Austin to Lexington line.

A stronger push of cooler air will bring precipitation chances to an end on Sunday. With northerly winds and cloud cover, highs will be below normal, ranging from the lower 60s in the Hill Country to the mid 70s along the Rio Grande. For the remainder of the forecast period, expect a slow warming trend along with dry weather.

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

Expecting VFR for area terminals this afternoon into the evening.
Southeast winds around 8 to 12 knots are forecast through this evening and below 10 knots overnight into the Thursday morning period. There is a low chance for isolated to scattered showers to affect KDRT early this evening as a few storms fire-up over the Mexican mountains and then push to the northeast into Val Verde County. Otherwise, MVFR/IFR cigs are forecast for KAUS, KSAT and KSSF for late this evening continuing through at least mid to late Thursday morning. A second round of showers and storms is forecast for late Thursday afternoon into the evening across the Rio Grande, southern Edwards Plateau and Hill Country. At this time, KDRT has the best chances to be impacted by shower and thunderstorm activity. We will include more details on this in future packages.
