Long Term
(Friday night through Wednesday) Issued at 342am CDT Thu May 23 2024

We will begin to tack on a degree each day through Monday as we should begin to see some mid 90s by the weekend. These temps are from 6 to 8 degrees above normal levels for this time of year. We will also be in the vicinity of a few record highs around the area over the weekend but several sites have records in the upper 90s and even a few at or just above 100F. So we are in that time of year when it starts to get a bit hot. Heat index values will also rise to around the 105F area as we get into Monday with higher moisture content in the boundary layer. A stalled front over central TX will get some added forcing by Monday morning to start moving our way. This front should be here by Monday night or ealry Tue. It could provide some showers or even a storm or two but it will help to dry things out a bit with lower dew pt air. The cloudy cover will help though since this time of year fronts with dry air only provide higher optical depth values giving way to much warmer temps when there is no cloud cover. This front should stall either just offshore or at the coast and start its way back by mid week. Still no organized storms seen on the horizon.

Issued at 342am CDT Thu May 23 2024

Southerly winds of 10-15kt will remain through much of this fcast. There is a front that could stall either just offshore or at the coast Monday night or early Tue. No organized storms are expected with this front but there is a chance that winds could shift to a northerly direction for Tuesday but should remain rather lite. Even if this front does manage to shift winds, it will be moving back to the north by mid next week with southerly winds becoming re- established.
