SHORT TERM. /NEW/ /Rest of Tonight through Sunday Night/
Clouds continue to linger across the region tonight but continued isentropic downglide will gradually result in clearing conditions into early Saturday. High pressure will gradually build into the mid-Mississippi River Valley during the day allowing northerly winds to become more northeasterly. Saturday is shaping up to be pretty nice with highs in the 60s and winds generally 10 mph or less.
Winds will turn more southerly late Saturday night into Sunday as high pressure continues to move eastward. Low level moisture will stream back into Texas late Sunday into Sunday night resulting in increasing cloud cover. Most of this cloud cover will remain over Central and West Texas given the trajectory of the low level flow. Meanwhile, a weak disturbance will pass through Central Texas late Sunday night, but should be starved of moisture resulting in little more than increased cloud cover. High temperatures on Sunday should top out in the upper 60s/lower 70s with temps falling into the 40s Sunday night.
LONG TERM. /Issued 141 PM CST Fri Mar 5 2021/ /Sunday onward/
Warmer temperatures and dry weather are expected for much of next week. These warmer conditions will come as upper-level ridging strengthens across the region and southerly flow increases. During the first couple days of the week (Monday and Tuesday), some elevated fire weather concerns will exist near and west of U.S. Highway 281 as afternoon minimum relative humidity values drop to less than 30 percent. While we are not expecting Red Flag conditions, the severe freeze from a few weeks ago has left a lot of stressed and/or dormant vegetation across the region. This means that otherwise marginal fire weather conditions may receive a "boost" from very receptive fuels across the region, leading to a higher fire weather threat. This has been seen lately with an increased number of initial attack fires. If current trends hold, a Grass Fire Danger Statement may be needed for at least Monday.
Towards the middle of next week, humidity will increase markedly, with dewpoints likely to be into the upper 50s to even lower 60s by Wednesday afternoon. This increased humidity should shut down any fire weather threat, as well as lead to warmer overnight lows. Tuesday Night through Thursday Night appear likely to have lows in the 60s for some locations.
By the end of next week, the forecast gets a bit more uncertain. The models are in good agreement with respect to the general upper-level pattern showing a strong upper-level trough digging into the Southwest. The models disagree significantly on the surface details however with the GFS showing more widespread precipitation by Friday, and the ECMWF showing less coverage. For now, will show Chance PoPs during this timeframe, with a mention for a slight chance of thunder. It is too early to speculate about any severe weather potential, but given the time of the year, it never hurts to review one's severe weather safety plans. Regardless, this looks like the best chance for precipitation through the next 7-10 days.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /6Z TAFs/
VFR cigs prevail around 5000 ft throughout the D10 airspace and are currently MVFR at Waco. Continued drying overnight should allow this cloud cover to erode further into early Saturday morning. VFR will prevail through the day Saturday into Saturday night. Northeast winds 15-20 kt overnight will diminish to 5 to 10 kt on Saturday. Winds will gradually become more southeasterly late Saturday night.
