AVIATION UPDATE. updated for 00z taf issuance.

PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 343 PM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020/

DISCUSSION .

SHORT TERM .

Today has been relatively active across our CWA with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Latest radar trends indicate that peak intensities and coverage have likely been reached and its downhill from here. That will take several hours to do-so and meso models show this trend. Until storms dissipate, the main threat expected is heavy rainfall and lighting. In terms of how heavy, at times hourly rainfall rates have reached upwards to 2 to 4 inches. Thus, could see flood advisories and possibly a flash flood warning issued. High temperatures have reached the upper 80s to low 90s and are not expected to raise any further today. PoPs and Wx grids for the rest of this afternoon and evening were adjusted to reflect our current conditions because it was showing a way too dry bias. Tonight, we may see some scattered showers and thunderstorms lingering around the area. There is a chance for some pop up showers and thunderstorms during the midnight hours. Low temperatures are expected to cool down overnight to the mid to upper 70s. Winds are still expected to behave through the night into tomorrow. Tomorrow, we should see PoPs rapidly increasing beginning just after sunrise. Can expect scattered thunderstorms throughout the day and it may last through the evening and overnight hours. Heavy rainfall continues to be the main impact expected. Saturday, it may take a little longer for convection to start up; it just depends on how soon we heat up. /TDB/

LONG TERM .

Once we get into Sunday, medium range models diverge somewhat in how troughing affects the local area. The models are still in a bit of conflict with each other about whether or not we will see mostly dry or wet days in the beginning of the week. The GFS and the EURO runs mentioned previously are now not lining up very well with expected conditions. The Euro now has us drying out Monday and Tuesday and the GFS is still allowing for a band of convection to come through. The NBM guidance is also showing a good chance for drier conditions, some convection cannot be ruled out as of today. We are still aligned with the neighboring offices, so we will continue to monitor this situation. /TDB/

MARINE .

Outside of the usual nocturnal thunderstorms, there are no major threats expected. With the cold front moving into our area early next week; if the front makes it to the Gulf early enough it may potentially allow for our winds to ramp up, but we will continue to monitor it. Otherwise, expecting winds less than 10 knots and seas less than 2 feet.

MEFFER

AVIATION . Most ongoing convection today is currently dissipating. Tomorrow will have the similar pattern of late morning to afternoon scattered to numerous thunderstorms. Terminals impacted by storms could see IFR conditions for both visibility and ceilings along with gusty winds. These should taper off around sunset. Additionally, ceilings outside of any storms could remain around low VFR to MVFR. -BL

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
