AVIATION
(12Z TAFS)
Issued at 655 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

VFR conditions will persist through the forecast with an easterly wind around 15 knots. Isolated to scattered showers will be possible along the Interstate 10 corridor this afternoon. Showers should have minimal impact on aviation; however, a few temporary instances of lower visibilities could be possible in the strongest of storms. Winds will relax to around 5 knots overnight.

New NEAR TERM, SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, MARINE

NEAR TERM...
(Now through Thursday)
Issued at 422 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Mostly dry conditions will continue the next two days as the upper ridge continues to build westward over the southeast. The only rain chances continue to remain right along the immediate coastline where moisture and influences of the outer moisture envelope of Potential Tropical Cyclone One over the southwestern Gulf are more noticeable. A few isolated to maybe scattered showers could make it to the I-10 corridor but overall not much in the way of rain is expected. However, PTC one will have an impact on area beaches as waves continue to be significant leading to a HIGH risk of rip currents and large breaking waves at the beaches.
Really not a good week for going into the Gulf and folks should continue to follow beach flags and avoid the water. The one good thing will be temperatures as cloud cover and a rather stiff easterly wind will keep temperatures on the cooler side with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. BB/03

SHORT and LONG TERM...
(Thursday night through Tuesday)
Issued at 422 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

An large, elongated upper ridge extending from the western Atlantic to the Desert Southwest will slowly sag southward into the weekend while an upper shortwave passes south of the northern Gulf Coast. The upper ridge will then retrograde westward over the weekend while upper troughing advancing eastward over the northern Great Plains and Great Lakes regions. This trough is then expected to dig southward along the Eastern Seaboard on Monday.

Surface ridging across the eastern CONUS will also slowly sag southward into the weekend while a surface low pressure area associated with the northern trough develops across the Western High Plains and lifts east-northeastward. A cold front associated with this surface low is expected to advance southeast into the Ohio River Valley region on Monday and stall.

A typical summer-time diurnal pattern will persist through the weekend with isolated to low-end scattered showers and storms southeast of I-65 expected Friday afternoon, and across much of the area both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Rain chances look to increase early next week due to increasing weakness aloft as the upper ridge retrogrades westward, with a good chance to likely showers and thunderstorms on Monday and likely coverage on Tuesday.

Daily highs will stay warm in the lower to middle 90s through the period, with some locations pushing into the upper 90s (about 3-7 degrees above normal) Sunday and Monday. Overnight lows remain toasty with lower to middle 70s through the remainder of the week with upper 70s along the beaches. Overnight lows early next week should be in the middle to upper 70s with lower 80s along the beaches. Surf heights will remain around 5 to 7 feet through Thursday afternoon, with a High Risk of rip currents remaining through Friday night becoming Moderate over the weekend. /22

MARINE...
Issued at 422 AM CDT Wed Jun 19 2024

A moderate to strong east-southeasterly flow will persist throughout the marine zones through Thursday in response to PTC one in the Bay of Campeche and a large area of high pressure over the southeast. Hazardous conditions for Small craft will persist through Thursday as seas range around 7 to 9 feet offshore with 2 to 3 feet in nearshore bays and waterways. Winds and seas are expected to slowly diminish by the weekend as Potential Tropical Cyclone moves west and the gradient weakens. BB/03
