New Short Term, Aviation

/NEW/ /Overnight through Saturday night/

Isolated showers that formed on the southern periphery of a ridge aloft have dissipated with the loss of surface heating. Diurnally driven Cu have also dissipated, leaving a mostly clear sky across the region. After a seasonably hot and humid day with highs in the lower and middle 90s, temperatures will cool steadily overnight, reaching the lower and middle 70s by sunrise Saturday.

Temperatures will be slightly warmer on Saturday (highs generally in the middle 90s) with building heights and plenty of sun. However, moisture will remain below 700 mb, allowing daytime Cu to develop once again. It is not out of the realm of possibility that a few sprinkles could reach the ground across a few of our Central Texas counties Saturday afternoon, but subsidence should be too strong for these brief showers to produce measurable rainfall.

Daytime Cu will dissipate Saturday evening and southerly winds will become light, allowing a steady cool down. Overnight lows will be mainly in the lower and middle 70s, but a few spots across the urban heat island of the metroplex may not fall below 78 degrees.


/Issued 150 PM CDT Fri Jun 21 2024/ /Sunday and Beyond/

The main story of the long-term forecast is the arrival of this year's first long duration period of impactful heat early next week.

A stout 597dam upper ridge currently centered over the Tennessee River Valley will shift westward over the next several days. The ridge axis will shift overhead North and Central Texas early next week before settling over the Desert Southwest by Wednesday. This pattern will result in the hottest temperatures of the year thus far with widespread afternoon highs in the mid-to upper 90s expected Sunday and beyond into the foreseeable future through at least the end of the next work week. The most likely area for temperatures to exceed the century mark will start across our Big Country counties generally along/west of Highway 281. The areal coverage of triple-digit temperature readings may expand as we get further into the week with Monday or Tuesday potentially being DFW's first 100-degree day of the year (20-30% chance). If we get a 100-degree reading at DFW Airport sometime this week, that will place this year's first 100-degree day about a week before the average date of July 1st.

Hot temperatures will continue through the week with several locations across North and Central Texas reaching triple-digits on a daily basis through the end of next week. Persistent south- southeasterly flow beneath the upper ridge will keep low-level moisture and high humidity sprawled across the region. Thus, expect afternoon heat index values to peak in the 105-110 degree range across much of our forecast area. A return to daily heat headlines is likely by Monday or Tuesday of next week. Warm overnight lows in the upper 70s to low 80s will also increase the likelihood of heat stress. Make sure to take the proper heat safety precautions and check up on your friends and family members who may be more vulnerable to heat-related illnesses!

As the ridge becomes centered over the Desert Southwest by Wednesday, NNW flow aloft will take shape over our region increasing the potential for thunderstorm complexes to propagate south out of OK/KS into North Texas. With these complexes being so dependent on smaller, mesoscale processes, we will limit rain chances to 20-30% for the Wednesday-Thursday time frame at this moment.


/NEW/ /06Z TAFs/

Strong high pressure aloft will result in unrestricted flying conditions across North and Central Texas through Saturday with a mostly clear sky at night and scattered daytime Cu.

A south to southeast wind will prevail through Saturday night at sustained speeds generally less than 12 knots
