New UPDATE

UPDATE
Issued at 1014 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

The high pressure is centered off to the east of the ArkLaTx and it is expected to build into the area over tonight and tomorrow.
Skies have cleared out for the most part and gusty winds have tapered down. Temperatures tonight are expected to fall into the 40s to 50s. Inherited grids are on track for the most part. The only edits made were to the wind and sky grids.

SHORT TERM
(Tonight through Tuesday night)
Issued at 350 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Front is through the area with clearing skies this afternoon. A little cool today as temps are around 10 degrees below average.
With continued clearing and drier air filtering into the region, expect temps in the 40s along/north of I-10. A couple of isolated locations around AEX could even flirt with the upper 30s.

Our afternoon temps in the 60s will be short lived as highs are back into the lower 70s on Monday and mid/upper 70s by Tuesday.
The weather will remain dry as high pressure builds across the region.

LONG TERM
(Wednesday through next Saturday)
Issued at 350 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Little change in forecast philosophy through the extended period in this package. High pressure extending from the Eastern Gulf of Mexico into the Bahamas will maintain south southeasterly winds through the second half of the week and weekend. These winds will increase beginning Thursday and remain elevated through the weekend in response to the proximity of a couple of frontal boundaries. The first will stall somewhere across Northeastern Texas and Northern Louisiana Thursday with the second approaching from central Texas late Friday. Broad upper level ridging extending from Mexico across much of the western and central gulf will hold any appreciable precipitation chances at bay although the moisture accompanying the front will likely yield some increased cloud cover. The increasing tropical moisture and ridging aloft will push afternoon highs into the mid to upper 80s by the weekend with overnight lows struggling to fall out of the 70s in an early taste of summer.

AVIATION
(00Z TAFS)
Issued at 633 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

At the most, we have sparse mid level decks that are slowly filtering out as drier and cooler air fills in. Skies will continually clear out and winds will taper this evening as the high pressure builds into the area. We will see winds shift out of the northeast then east from tomorrow afternoon to the end of this period, but remain fairly light.

MARINE
Issued at 350 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024

Winds will shift more northeasterly through early Monday, and should diminish by early afternoon. Onshore flow will redevelop by Tuesday as surface high pressure moves over the eastern seaboard, with southerly winds expected to continue through the week.
