New Aviation, Short Term

/NEW/ Update: No significant adjustments were made with this morning's forecast update, and a seasonably hot weekend is on tap with temperatures near normal. Overnight guidance continues to support a slim chance for a couple of isolated showers in parts of East or Southeast Texas on Sunday afternoon, with coverage of less than 10%.


Previous Discussion: /Through Sunday/

A shortwave trough traversing the Central Plains is acting to break down the synoptic scale upper ridge, and this process will maintain a relative weakness aloft locally through the weekend.
Despite the absence of strong ridging overhead, little in the way of forcing will be present to allow for convection, especially given a dearth of low-level moisture content. These factors will yield a seasonably hot weekend with highs in the mid 90s and lows in the low/mid 70s. At most, a percolating cumulus field across portions of southeast Texas on Sunday afternoon could mature into very isolated rain shower activity, but these rain chances across our southeast zones are less than 10%. A southeasterly wind of 10-15 mph will prevail through the entire weekend, offering modest relief from the summer heat. With fairly aggressive mixing out of surface dewpoints during the daytime, heat index values will remain comparable to ambient temperatures.


/Issued 243 AM CDT Sat Jun 15 2024/ /Sunday Night Onward/

Gulf moisture will be on the increase next week as a tropical wave moves northwest from the Bay of Campeche into northeastern Mexico and South Texas. Low-end POPs will begin across the southeast zones Monday afternoon as the initial surge of tropical moisture arrives. Rain chances will spread a little farther inland each day through Wednesday as the disturbances itself moves north and west, and a second moisture surge arrives. Central Texas will lie on the northern fringe of the system and is where our better rain chances will be, though isolated showers and storms will likely spread to and north of the I-20 corridor by Tuesday, and to the Red River by Wednesday. Locally heavy rain would be the primary concern in any thunderstorm, but the isolated to scattered nature of the convection should mitigate the overall flood threat. Individual cells will also move at a pretty good pace, particularly Wednesday when southeast flow will be strongest and storm motions should end up being northwest at 30+ MPH.

The tropical system will turn west and accelerate across Mexico on Thursday. Diurnally driven convection will be possible for one more day with isolated rain showers lingering into Thursday night.
The ridge will re-strengthen overhead on Friday, briefly shutting off rain chances and increasing temperatures once again. More rain chances may arrive next weekend, however, as the ridge weakens due to a mid latitude trough sweeping through the Plains.


/NEW/ /12z TAFs/

VFR and southeast winds of 8-12 kts will prevail through the period, with a few higher daytime gusts of 15-20 kts. MVFR stratus intrusions both this morning and again Sunday morning are expected to remain well south and east of the TAF sites.
