Long Term
(Wednesday night through next Monday) Issued at 243am CDT Tuesday April 16 2024

Key Message:

▶ There is a Marginal Risk of Severe Thunderstorms across the Brush Country Thursday. ▶ Cold front late Saturday with a medium chance (40-60%) of showers and thunderstorms

We open up the long term with an upper level ridge anchored over the Gulf and a stalled cold front draped across the Hill Country. As we head through the day Thursday, a stout H5 shortwave will move through the region while pushing the high well south of the region. This will open the door for a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, generally across the Brush Country during the afternoon hours Thursday. Storm Prediction Center currently has a Marginal Risk for Severe Thunderstorms for our western counties. In the wake of the shortwave, upper level flow will become quasi-zonal as we head into the weekend. Meanwhile, a deepening low pressure system over Canada will eject a cold front south across the Plains. The front looks to briefly stall to our north on Saturday but a passing H5 shortwave provides enough of a push to send it through our area. There are still some timing differences with FROPA at this point but general consensus is leaning towards late Saturday night into early Sunday morning. Chances for showers and thunderstorms will begin to increase through the day Saturday, settling into the 40-60% chance range late Saturday night. In the wake of the front, we will hang onto some low end rain chances as moisture lingers across the region.

Taking a look at our temps, we will continue to warm up through the work week with highs nearing the triple digits out west. Our weekend cold front will knock highs back into the mid 70s to low 80s Sunday/Monday.

Marine
Issued at 243am CDT Tuesday April 16 2024

Moderate to strong onshore flow is expected tonight through early Tuesday, as an upper level disturbance approaches the Southern Plains. As the gradient relaxes Tuesday onshore flow will return to weak to moderate Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. This will persist through the end of the week ahead of our next front. Shower and thunderstorm chances return over the weekend as a cold front approaches. Latest timing has the front moving offshore Sunday morning with moderate to occasionally strong northeast winds in its wake.
