Long Term
(Friday through Tuesday) Issued at 400am CDT Tuesday April 16 2024

By Friday, a quasi stationary boundary along the ARKLATEX (Arkansas/Louisiana/Texas) region stretches across the Appalachian Mountains. With the northern stream surface above the Great Lakes low pressure slowly weakening and being absorbed by the longwave trough pattern extending south from the Polar regions into central Canada, the pattern for the long range remains a bit unsettled with respect to precipitation impacts and timing during the weekend ahead for SETX / SWLA. Temperatures will peak Friday and Saturday into the upper 80’s across south central portions portions of the CWA (County Warning Area) while highs keep a few degrees cooler near coastal locations. Once the front passes through Sunday, temperatures during the early part of next week will dip areawide 7- 9°F lower than forecast throughout this week. A rebound into the mid 80’s with little signal for precipitation is expected while winds returning southeasterly again by Monday night, next week.

As mentioned, the larger focus in the long term is currently the precipitation over the upcoming weekend. Currently, probs for any mode of severe weather remain too low for any notation in severe weather guidance products, per latest Storm Prediction Center and WPC analysis. That said, forecast soundings still indicate the environment can support thunderstorms as the boundary sinks south along western / central coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. POPS have been introduced throughout portions of Saturday, where moisture advection abuts the front, increasing into Sunday where more organized precipitation is favored over the area. The upper level pattern continues to develop subsidence over the Midwest behind the frontal pattern Sunday evening and remains consistently progressive in accelerating into the Gulf of Mexico through the morning of the 22nd (Monday). Signals for precipitation quickly drop off early Monday as the ridge pattern keeps the weather relatively benign trending further into the work week.

Kowalski/30

Marine
Issued at 400am CDT Tuesday April 16 2024

Modest and gusty south winds will continue and strengthen a bit today as an area of low pressure forms and deepens over the Plains. Small craft are advised to exercise caution. Winds will ease on Wednesday as the low lifts off toward the Great Lakes, with a generally light onshore flow prevailing into the weekend. Precipitation chances are negligible until the weekend.
