. New Long Term .
SHORT TERM. /Issued 1236 PM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021/ /Rest of Today through Friday/
A mid-level ridge remains in place to our north, but a persistent east/southeast flow will continue to bring moisture into our area through the end of the week. In response, more diurnally driven showers and storms will develop. The best coverage is expected to remain along/south of I-20, but isolated storms will be possible across the entire region. While the wind threat is a little lower today given that temperature and dewpoint spread won't be as high as they were the last couple of days, we can't rule out isolated strong wind gusts. Any showers/storms will diminish late in the evening leaving us with a quiet but warm night.
Expect another hot and humid day on Friday. Highs will be in the mid-upper 90s, but the heat indices are forecast to reach or exceed 105 degrees across many locations in North and East TX. The Heat Advisory will be extended for Friday afternoon. Despite the upper level ridge slowly shifting south on Friday, more isolated to scattered showers and storms will still be possible in the afternoon and early evening.
LONG TERM. /NEW/ /Friday night through Thursday/
A high amplitude ridge from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico will stay in place through the weekend, maintaining hot and generally rain free weather. Since low level moisture will remain abundant, the combination of heat (highs mid 90s to around 100) and humidity will result in triple digit heat index values. Therefore, the current Heat Advisory will likely need to be extended through the weekend. Subsidence on Friday night and Saturday will likely limit convection but there will still be a slim chance for isolated storms during the heat of the day Saturday, especially across the southeast zones. Any storm that does develop will have a potential to produce a microburst. Better storm chances will arrive Sunday afternoon when an upper trough deepens across the eastern half of the country and a cold front approaches from the north. Although the front may not cross the Red River until Sunday night, outflow boundaries from Oklahoma convection will have a chance of reaching North Texas in the afternoon, warranting slight chance to chance PoPs. The front will slide slowly through North Texas Sunday night and Monday, reaching Central Texas around Tuesday. The arrival of the front will bring more clouds, cooler temperatures (highs in the 90s, lows in the lower and middle 70s) and scattered showers and thunderstorms. As with any summertime cold front, forecasting exactly how far south it will travel is difficult since mesoscale processes play such a pivotal role. However, with the forecast area remaining on the western periphery of a long wave trough and the front washing out somewhere in the CWA, low chance PoPs will be maintained Wednesday and Thursday. 79
AVIATION. /Issued 1236 PM CDT Thu Jul 29 2021/ /18Z TAFs/
No major concerns are expected through the forecast period. A few showers and storms are still possible through the evening, but the very isolated nature of this activity is keeping us from introducing VCTS at this time. The chance for thunder at any point location is relatively low, but trends will be monitored through the evening. Otherwise, VFR conditions and light south/southeast winds will persist. Another round of isolated/scattered convection will be possible Friday afternoon.
