Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Fort Worth TX 540 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020
SHORT TERM. /NEW/ Update:
No changes to the current short term forecast through Sunday. Mid level ridging will help keep temperatures near or slightly above normal with little chance for rain. Some passing high clouds will overspread parts of the area this morning, but otherwise it should be a mostly sunny day with highs near 100 in many locations. Some sea breeze showers/storms may develop across southeast Texas this afternoon, but all of this activity should remain well removed from our area.
Previous Discussion: /Overnight through Sunday/
Mid level ridging will prevail through the weekend keeping North and Central Texas hot and dry. Temperatures will be near 100 degrees each afternoon through Sunday with overnight lows in the upper 70s. Moisture will be confined to southeast Texas and through the Arklatex through Sunday, so any attempts at afternoon convection should be confined to those areas. PoPs in our area will be near zero for the next few days. Southerly winds 10-15 mph will provide some small relief to the hot temperatures. Heat indices will top out in the 100-103 degree range on Saturday and may approach 105 on Sunday as a little better moisture spreads into areas east of I-35.
LONG TERM. /Issued 242 AM CDT Sat Aug 8 2020/ /Sunday Night Onward/ Overall, next week should remain mostly inactive as an upper ridge influences the sensible weather across North and Central Texas. There may be a few isolated showers and storms by mid-week mainly in the northeast, then again by the end of the week in the southeast. High temperatures will remain above normal through next weekend.
An anti-cyclonic circulation currently centered across North Texas will continue to have a firm grip across region on Monday, keeping precipitation chances at bay. With the dry conditions and relative humidity values in the 20-30 percent range, a fire weather threat will remain in place mainly west of I-35 through the middle of the week.
A gradual westward shift in the upper high is expected by Monday night as a disturbance dives southeast out of the Central Plains. The bulk of the precipitation with this disturbance is expected to remain across eastern Oklahoma into Arkansas, but a few rogue showers and storms may graze our northeastern counties in the afternoon.
The slow westward retreat of the upper ridge will continue through the end of the week, placing the region once again under northwesterly flow aloft. Nocturnal thunderstorm complexes are likely to roll of the Central Plains and move southeastward the latter half of the week. Once again, the bulk of the precipitation will remain out of our region, but a few storms may graze our northeastern counties. In addition to the precipitation chances in the northeast, stronger low-level southerly flow will help draw afternoon thunderstorms northward out of the coastal region. A few of those will have the potential to impact our southeastern counties late in the afternoon Thursday through Saturday. Severe weather remains unlikely with any of the expected precipitation.
With high temperatures remaining above normal throughout the week, all North and Central Texas residents should prepare to take the necessary precautions to prevent heat related illnesses. Heat index values in some isolated locations may reach 105-107 degrees. Trends will continue to be monitored through the next couple of days in case a Heat Advisory is needed.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /12Z TAFs/
VFR will prevail through the period with southerly winds 10-15 kt. Other than some passing high clouds this morning, no significant aviation concerns are expected through Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
