. New Short Term, Aviation .

SHORT TERM. /NEW/ /Tonight and Tomorrow/

Quiet weather is expected through the short term period as high pressure dominates. The surface ridge axis is currently aligned along the I-35 corridor and will gradually slide east through the night. Dry air and light winds will make for a cool night across the region due to efficient radiational cooling. Near calm winds over East Texas may allow shallow ground fog to develop in low lying watershed areas in the early morning hours.

A mild and sunny day is expected tomorrow. Southwest flow will provide a downsloping component and allow temperatures to climb higher than most guidance indicates. This evening's forecast update has bumped up tomorrow's highs, mostly along and west of I-35 where this effect will be most apparent. A side effect of this will be an elevated grass fire danger due to warm temps, low RH around 20-25 percent, and gusty winds.

LONG TERM. /Issued 336 PM CST Tue Mar 2 2021/ /Late Week Through Monday/

Our progressive late Winter pattern continues as a surface high shifts east of the area with shortwave ridging setting up aloft. This will all be in advance of an upper low trudging east over the the Four Corners/Southern Rockies. This will spell breezy and warmer weather as southerly winds increase to to between 15-20 mph with higher gusts across all but our East Texas counties. Despite recent rainfall, a relatively dry airmass remains across the area. Grasses and small vegetation continue to dry quickly and where rainfall has been less predominate since our mid-February arctic cold spell. Highs will warm to between 65 and 75 degrees and combined with the conditions described above will likely present some elevated grass fire concerns, especially across western parts of the area.

The approaching upper low will take a bit more of a northerly track versus our last system as it tracks east over the Central and Southern High Plains and toward much of Oklahoma and Kansas. Moisture flux from the GOM is expected to be most prominent across the Red River Valley into East Texas and the Ark-La-Tex area. Strong, deep layer west/southwest flow will likely result in an elevated mixed layer(or in common terms, a "cap") forming across areas particularly south of I-20. A surface low over the Texas Panhandle/Western Oklahoma Thursday night is forecast to track toward the best mid level height falls from North Texas into Oklahoma and the Ozarks on Friday. Moisture quality won't be of the highest quality thanks in large part to some dry pockets aloft. Spotty PWAT to near 1 inch will occur along and east of I-35. Isolated to scattered showers will likely develop initially later Thursday evening and overnight in response to rapidly increasing low level WAA associated with a 40-50 knot LLJ setting up from I-20 into Eastern Oklahoma and Southeast Kansas.

The nose of the strongest low level WAA and the left exit region of a 130-150 knot upper jet maximum will likely juxtapose across much of Central Oklahoma into the Ark-La-Tex Region moving into Friday morning. Meanwhile, a deep, strong westerly component to flow just south of the upper low track across much of our CWA will result in a sharp cut off of convective rain chances from our northeast counties back toward the I-20. The further southwest you go on Friday, the more likely you will see dry, breezy, and warmer weather. Unless this storm system was to track further south, PoPs will be confined to areas mostly along/north of Highway 380 and locations east of Highway 75/I-45 further south and where better moisture will be available. Much of the instability will be contained aloft and combined with strong 0-6km westerly shear of 60-70 knots could result in a few strong storms with gusty winds and small hail on Friday. A cold front being, preceded briefly by a dryline, will arrive across western North and Central Texas by Friday afternoon and in wake the weakening surface low across Southeast Texas. The very gusty northwest winds in wake of the cold front Friday afternoon will likely create grass fire concerns across western parts the area once again. There will be quite the spread of temperatures late Friday. Highs will range from 55-60 degrees across our northeast counties, to the lower 70s across Central Texas west of Highway 6(which is located between I-35 and I-45).

The early half of the weekend will be dry, but seasonably cool despite clearing skies. Brisk northeast winds 10-15 mph continue funneling a cool airmass into the area and in wake of our departing storm system. Highs will make it into the lower-mid 60s thanks in large part to the increasing insolation from skies clearing from northeast to southwest. A warm up will ensue quickly by Sunday as shortwave ridging combines with southerly winds 15-20 mph returning as we start the cycle once again. A fast- moving impulse will produce some passing high clouds, but not enough cloud cover to hamper highs from warming to around 70 degrees across the southwest half of the area. Monday will remain dry as well, though we may see a rise in humidity as the breezy and gusty southerly winds draw modified moisture northward from the western GOM. We'll continue to be concerned about some elevated fire weather with the warm and breezy conditions. Particularly concerning will be west of US-281 where less rainfall has occurred the past few weeks and where afternoon humidity values may fall to/below 35 percent.

AVIATION. /NEW/ /00Z TAFs/

No significant operational weather concerns are anticipated through the valid TAF period. Light and variable winds this afternoon will become out of the south tonight. Expect southwest winds around 8-12 kts tomorrow afternoon.
