New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE

SHORT TERM
(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

Upper ridging extended from southern California to western Louisiana early this morning with troughing just off the Atlantic Coast to the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. There was a shortwave moving through the western Great Lakes and another over Nebraska and Kansas.

Temperatures at 3 AM CDT were in the 70s across most of the area.
There were a few showers over the Gulf of Mexico to the south of the Mississippi coast, which isn`t all that unusual for this time of year.

The primary concerns over the next 36 hours will be the heat, and the potential for thunderstorms. While the shortwave that triggered yesterday`s thunderstorms has moved away from the area, there will still be remnant outflow boundaries around. As temperatures heat up into the middle 90s in most areas by midday, we should see at least isolated to scattered development of storms. Low level wind fields are pretty weak, so any storms that develop today won`t be moving much, just propagating along outflows. Most storms should die out by sunset. Before the thunderstorms develop, conditions are likely to be pretty oppressive with heat index values approaching, if not exceeding 110F in many areas. Will keep the Heat Advisory in place for today.

The one change on Wednesday as compared to today is that a shortwave moving out of the Plains states will move into the area around midday, which is expected to enhance areal coverage of showers and storms during the afternoon into the early evening hours. Depending on the timing of convective development, it could keep our heat index values just below advisory criteria tomorrow.
We won`t extend the advisory beyond this afternoon for now, but there`s certainly potential that we will need one, especially west of Interstate 55.

As there isn`t much spread in the guidance, will not make significant departures from the NBM deterministic for now.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday night through Monday)
Issued at 325 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

We may still have shortwave energy impacting the area on Thursday with ridging well to the west of the area. That would lead to fairly good areal coverage of storms across the area, and potentially be the least uncomfortable day of the extended. Beyond Thursday, both the GFS and ECMWF operational runs build the ridge back toward the area. At this point, the main question is whether the ridge builds over the local area or just to the north of the area. If it builds over the area, it would limit any significant development of thunderstorms, and allow for hotter daytime temperatures. If it becomes centered to the north of the area, it may allow for at least some afternoon convection, especially near the coast. At this point, the more favored solution would allow at least some thunderstorm development during the afternoon hours and hold high temperatures in the middle 90s.

AVIATION
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1132 PM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024

VFR conditions will prevail at all terminals through the overnight hours. Some MVFR VIS has been noted at MCB again, but low confidence beyond some bounces in VIS. Introduced VCTS and PROB30 groups to tomorrow afternoon with highest chance of impacts to terminals being 18-21 UTC for immediate coastal areas and beyond 20 UTC along and north of I-10/12. Storms will be capable of strong gusty winds varying from prevailing winds and substantial drops in VIS/CIG.

MARINE
Issued at 325 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

No large scale pressure systems are expected to impact the coastal waters over the next several days. So, outside of the usual diurnal increase in wind speeds during the evening hours, the only real concern will be the development of thunderstorms. Generally, that would impact the tidal lakes and sounds during primarily the afternoon and evening hours and the open waters during the late night and early morning hours.
