New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, AVIATION, MARINE

SHORT TERM
(Today through Monday)
Issued at 307 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Southerly winds today will slooooowly bring dew pt temps into the 60s by late today. Winds will also begin to rise to around 10mph by the start of the work week. As temps climb into the 80s over the next several days, the continued relatively dry conditions coupled with a light brz will keep ambient conditions feeling comfortable.
The only other element seen is fog. There is a weak signal for radiation fog for Sunday morning. This will only be over stagnant water areas since that will be the best available moisture.

LONG TERM
(Monday night through Saturday)
Issued at 307 AM CDT Sun Apr 14 2024

Monday morning is showing a much better signal for fog as the low levels decouple and dew pt temps should be well established in the 60s. Even though the best conditions for development is west of the area, there is still an adequate radiation fog signal here or at least the northern half of the area where it is most likely to decouple.

There is not a lot of change with regards to the next frontal system as it should move into east TX and stall as it feels the pull of the next front getting organized to the north. This first front will be supported by the upper low coming ashore the Cali coast. This upper low will eventually buckle the subtropical jet and couple with it.
As the low opens up and moves NE, the winds go parallel to the sfc cold front through the column. This is what will cause the front to stall(basically no more forcing). But the sh/ts that develop from this front will continue to move eastward away from the front but as it approaches our area, there will be no sfc support and weakening upper level support. This should cause the sh/ts to begin weakening as well especially along the southern portion of this line. So, even if there are a few sh/ts that make it here by Tue or Wed, it won't be much. Another strong cold front is advertised to move into the area by the end of next week. There are spacial and temporal differences in the global suites but they all agree on the tangible aspects of this front, the most noteable is the thermal gradient associated with this front. The GFS is fastest with this feature bringing it through Sat while the Euro is slowest bringing it through Sun. The upper support for a sfc low development will be associated with the coupling of the polar and subtrop jets with a sfc low developing over the west central gulf by late Sun. This is very common with deep upper troughs, so it does seem to be reasonable. The thing that is not, is the placement of sh/ts. The GFS would seem to be following what would typically happen during these scenarios, but we all know there a lot of things that don't always go the typical way. So we will have to see how this unfolds through time.
