New Long Term

/Issued 210 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024/ /Through Monday Afternoon/

Not all is lost if you were wanting at least half of your weekend to be salvageable for outdoor activities. However, widespread rainfall the past 24 hours will likely result in very saturated soils, as well as swollen creeks and rivers across the area. The heavier axis of rainfall that models had across especially eastern Central Texas ended up being flipped as heavier rainfall of 1 to 3" ended occur along and north of I-20 and across all of North Texas. However, Central Texas wasn't completely left out with most areas seeing 0.5 to 1.5". There was a few isolated, higher rainfall exceptions from Dallas east into northern Ellis Co and into Kaufman Co, as well as northeastern Wise Co into far northern Denton/far southern Cooke counties where isolated 4"+ amounts fell. Dallas Love Field saw their daily record for 4/20 shattered with 4.22" (old record was 2.09"). DFW airport set a record with 2.34" (old record 1.52"). Waco Regional Airport, though less still enjoyed a nice rainfall of 1.25" for the date (well below the record of 3.44").

Fortunately, strong subsidence behind our departing mid level disturbance and a rapid intrusion of drier air from the north will help to scatter out the low level cloud canopy by this afternoon.
Partly to mostly sunny afternoon skies will allow temperatures to recover into the lower to mid 60s after a very cool start in the mid 40s to the lower 50s with strong ridging at the surface.
Northeast winds 10 to 15 mph and mostly cloudy skies may make it feel a bit chilly this morning, but compared to the the stormy conditions and 50s on Saturday it'll be a nicer day in comparison.
A broad surface ridge arrives tonight with dry northwest flow aloft. Outside of a few passing high clouds, the light winds and mostly clear conditions allow for the area to fall well into the 40s. With the saturated soils, I can't rule out some patchy ground (or as some call it, graveyard fog) to form in the rural areas by sunrise Monday. This moisture should also help lows stay up a few degrees than say if the ground was dry. Light southerly winds will slowly return on Monday, as northwest flow transition to a low amplitude ridge aloft. This will result in sunny conditions with highs around 70 degrees for the entire region.


/NEW/ /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.


/Issued 210 AM CDT Sun Apr 21 2024/ /06z TAFs/

Improving flying conditions for both commercial and private aviation continues to occur rapidly within the D10 airspace, especially the DFW Metro airports where VFR cigs AoA 5 kft will only continue to rise and become broken after sunrise. Waco Regional Airport will remain impacted by slow rising MVFR cigs through 12z, but similar trends will occur later this morning and afternoon.

Strong subsidence immediately in wake of the departing upper disturbance and MCS over Southeast Texas will combine with a rapid intrusion of dry air below 850mb for a continued improvement throughout the day.

Northerly sustained surface winds around 5 to 10 kts will veer northeasterly at 10-15 kts later this morning, before diminishing later this afternoon and becoming near calm after nightfall this evening.
