New Short Term, Aviation

/NEW/ /Tonight through Monday Night/

Surface high pressure will settle into the region overnight tonight with northerly winds becoming light and variable under mostly clear skies. Good radiational cooling should allow temperatures to fall into the lower 40s across North Texas with perhaps a few rural locations dropping into the upper 30s. As the surface high moves off to the east on Monday, winds will become more southerly and temperatures will climb back into the lower 70s. Mostly clear skies are expected on Monday night with temperatures in the 50s.


/Issued 1254 PM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024/


No major changes with the most recent forecast update, as we are still looking at another active pattern setting up mid to late week. Low rain chances return to portions of North Texas late Tuesday through Thursday, but more widespread shower/storm chances are expected Friday through the weekend. Most of the activity Tuesday and Wednesday will remain west/north of our area as convection develops along a dryline and a cold front. However, a lingering storm or two may sneak into our western and northern counties Tuesday night into Wednesday. Precipitation chances will increase area wide Friday through the weekend as a series of upper level systems travel across the region. We can't rule out the potential for a few strong to severe storms, but details are still uncertain at this time.


Previous Discussion: /Monday Night Onward/

Return flow will already be in place Monday night, and will strengthen on Tuesday as North and Central Texas becomes positioned between a cold front to the north, dryline to the west, and surface ridge to the east. The resulting narrow pressure gradient will increase south winds to 15-25 MPH with occasional higher gusts by Tuesday afternoon. Meanwhile, a mid level ridge will strengthen overhead, helping to return temperatures to near- normal values for the midweek period. The front will stall near or just north of the Red River, providing as focus for isolated thunderstorm development during the afternoon and evening hours both Tuesday and Wednesday. The presence of the ridge will preclude more widespread convection, and POPs will be limited to areas generally north of the I-20 corridor (closest to the front and farthest from the ridge axis).

The front will retreat north on Thursday as a shortwave trough advances east through the Four Corners region and a lee surface trough deepens. Any thunderstorms which would affect the region Thursday afternoon and evening would need to initialize near the dryline, which should still be located well west of the forecast area. A strong capping inversion may end up shutting off convection as it attempts to move east into the region, keeping any POPs in the slight chance range. Slightly better storm chances will occur on Friday as the shortwave lifts northeast through the Plains and the dryline shifts farther east to near Highway 281.
Thunderstorms which fire near the surface boundary would likely survive the trek across the I-35 corridor Friday evening before dissipating overnight Friday night. Some of the Friday storms would likely have a potential to produce large hail, though it is still a bit too soon to speculate on all of the severe weather parameter details.

Unsettled weather will continue next weekend as a deeper upper trough takes shape over the western CONUS, providing additional chances for thunderstorms across the region. A lead shortwave will lift northeast through the plains on Saturday, generating another possible round of dryline-induced convection Saturday afternoon and evening (similar to Friday). The main trough will eventually move through the Plains next Sunday into the following Monday, providing additional storm chances, with activity focused along an attendant Pacific front.


/NEW/ /00Z TAFs/

VFR will prevail through the period with northerly winds around 10 kt becoming light and variable overnight. South winds will return on Monday morning around 10 kt. No significant aviation concerns are expected through the period.
