AVIATION. /00z TAFs/

Concerns and challenges: Lingering, patchy MVFR cigs in Central TX may affect Waco off/on through 03z this evening. Same with low VFR cigs AOA FL030 near and just east of KDAL/KGKY.

Residual moisture resides on the shallow frontal inversion across Central TX. As we await the drier air to entrain into that area, periodic MVFR cigs may occur at Waco Regional Airport through mid evening. Otherwise, mid-high level moisture associated with a mid level trough moving east across the region will provide clouds between FL150-250 moving SW to NE across the airports this evening. Otherwise, VFR at all airports. Hydro lapse rates at Waco by 12z may allow for some 4-5SM BR conditions for a few hours before being mixed out by increasing ESE/SE winds near 10 knots after 15z Wednesday. The surface airmass at DFW Metro airports should be too dry for any Vsby/BR concerns.

A 1030mb surface high pressure center will continue to settle across the AR-LA-TX area and E TX, before shifting east toward the Lower MS Valley on Wednesday. Current NE winds around 5 knots will become calm overnight; before becoming ESE/SE 8-10 knots after 15z Wednesday.

LONG TERM. /Issued 301 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019/ /Wednesday Night Onward/

Temperatures Wednesday night into Thursday morning will not be as cool compared to what we expect tonight. Radiational cooling will allow for temperatures to drop into the lower to mid 30s, with a calm to light wind in place.

An upper level shortwave will be making its way into the region Thursday, but with little moisture to work with, no precipitation is expected. The only effects of the passing shortwave will be increased cloud cover during the day, as well as increasing southerly winds in the afternoon. The southerly winds are expected to continue into Thursday night and Friday, leading to a slight warm up for much of the region. Temperatures Friday and Saturday will be running anywhere between 2 to 10 degrees above average for this time of the year. Low temperatures each day will range from the mid 30s to the mid 40s.

The next cold front is slated to start moving through the region Sunday through Sunday night, ushering in another round of below normal temperatures for the start of the new work week. As the front makes its way through the region, there is fairly good consensus that a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible. Weak instability will likely preclude the development of strong thunderstorms, but this will continue to be monitored through the rest of this week.

All rain is expected to exit the region throughout the day on Monday as dry air intrudes from the north. Temperatures are also expected to remain on the cool side with below normal highs Monday and Tuesday. Highs will likely range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s both days.

SHORT TERM. /Issued 1222 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019/

/Through Wednesday Night/

The main concern in the short term forecast period will be lingering light rain and possible patchy freezing fog on Wednesday morning. At this time, the potential is very low and will be relegated to parts of Central Texas. Otherwise, cold conditions will persist this afternoon and into the nighttime period. Below normal temperatures are also anticipated on Wednesday though it'll be less gloomy with mostly sunny skies.

The upper level trough responsible for this morning's light rain with intermittent sleet continues to churn across the Permian Basin. With this feature a little slower, mid and upper level ascent will continue to overspread the area. While I expect that the radar scope will remain quite illuminated this afternoon, dry air advection at the surface will likely keep rainfall amounts very light (just a few hundredths of an inch of additional rain expected). For most locations, only virga is anticipated. The lingering ascent will delay the erosion of cloud cover and I've slowed the clearing line by a few hours. This should mean the raw and unpleasant conditions will continue this afternoon with most areas struggling to get out of the upper 30s and low 40s. The exception may be across western North Texas where late day clearing and thus diabatic heating may be enough to allow temperatures to climb a little higher into the mid 40s.

For tonight, mostly clear skies, calm winds and large temperature-dew point temperature spreads will allow for ideal radiational cooling as the main trough axis aloft translates eastward. The previous forecast remained well below the model consensus for MinT's and I see no reason to deviate from that based on the expected conditions. Most areas will fall down below freezing with some locations west of I-35 falling into the low 20s. The recent rainfall may promote the development of some patchy freezing mist/fog . mainly across Central Texas. At this time, confidence isn't high enough to include in the worded forecast, but this will need to be monitored closely.

Wednesday won't be quite as cool---though still below normal--- and with ample sunshine, the 50s will actually feel much more pleasant compared to today. Northeast winds will be replaced with southerly flow as upstream lee-side trough commences.
