New Long Term

/Issued 1213 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024/ /Through Wednesday/

Quiet, rain-free weather continues through Wednesday as we remain beneath a mid-level ridge. Afternoon temperatures will top out 10 to 20 degrees above normal today, with highs in the mid 70s to mid 80s. The pressure gradient will compress across North and Central Texas this afternoon as a low pressure system intensifies in the lee of the Rockies. This will result in the onset of breezy conditions that will continue through Wednesday. Wind speeds will increase to 10 to 15 mph this afternoon with a few gusts between 20 to 25 mph.

Patchy fog is expected to develop late tonight into Wednesday morning, but a surge of low stratus adds some uncertainty to this forecast. The area highlighted for patchy fog was expanded further north with this update, but still excludes most of the Metroplex at this time. It's possible we end up with only low stratus and no (or very little) fog, but uncertainty is still quite high.
Regardless, any fog should dissipate by mid to late Wednesday morning, with some lingering stratus expected east of I-35 through midday/early afternoon.

Guidance has slightly backed off on the hotter temperatures tomorrow, mainly across the Big Country. NBM probabilities now only advertise about a 5-10% chance of reaching 90 degrees in this region. Therefore, temperatures were lowered slightly from the previous forecast. Nonetheless, Wednesday is still expected to be another warm February day with afternoon highs ranging from the mid 70s across the east to mid 80s across the west. Slightly stronger winds are expected tomorrow, with sustained speeds mostly between 15 to 20 mph and gusts upwards of 30 mph.


/NEW/ Update:

No major changes were made to the long term forecast. Upper-level ridging will continue our above-normal stretch of temperatures through much of the week and into next weekend. A weak, rain-free cold front will sweep through North and Central Texas on Thursday, but temperatures will remain slightly above-normal as this cooler airmass modifies along its journey south. Temperatures will go on the rise once again over the weekend and into the start of next week as highs climb into the upper 70s and low 80s, with rain chances remaining just out of reach of the extended forecast.


Previous Discussion: /Wednesday Night Onward/

The ridge at least partially responsible for the nice, warm weather will weaken Wednesday night and Thursday as a shortwave trough propagates east across the Plains. The trough will drag a cold front through North and Central Texas on Thursday, bringing a slight cool-down for the latter half of the week. Daytime temperatures will drop from 15-20 degrees above normal on Wednesday to 5-10 degrees above normal on Friday, with Thursday being the transition period as the front sweeps through. A tight pressure gradient associated with the surface frontal system will create windy weather both Wednesday night ahead of the front and Thursday behind the front.

A warm-up will then ensue this weekend as return flow arrives and a mid/upper ridge redevelops overhead, with temperatures climbing to 10-15 degrees above normal by Sunday. South winds will strengthen late Saturday and remain gusty through Monday as the next upper trough approaches and lee-side surface troughing intensifies. The upper trough and its attendant cold front will bring our next chance of rain around the middle of next week, followed by cooler and dry weather late next week to round out February and begin the month of March.


/Issued 1213 PM CST Tue Feb 20 2024/ /18Z TAFs/

VFR and southerly winds will continue for the remainder of the day with increasing wind speeds expected after 20-21Z. Occasional gusts upwards of 20-25 knots may occur for a few hours late this afternoon.

Patchy fog is expected to develop across portions of East Texas and eastern Central Texas late tonight into early Wednesday morning. This is expected to remain south and east of the terminals, but there is a low chance Waco sees a brief period of lower visibility early Wednesday. On the other hand, there is a greater chance for low stratus. We've maintained ceilings around 1 kft in the KACT TAF for now, but there's still high uncertainty in how low the ceilings will be. Latest guidance is leaning a bit more towards low MVFR stratus, but we still can't rule out IFR ceilings at this time.

For D10, there's still a low chance MVFR ceilings will invade eastern D10 terminals, but there is high uncertainty in how far north and west the stratus will progress. For now, we'll maintain VFR for all of D10, but this could be changed in future updates.
