.SHORT TERM... (Tonight through Thursday night) Issued at 247pm CDT Tuesday May 28 2024

Showers and thunderstorms are currently widespread across a majority of the area, some of which are severe. We should see a decrease in activity over the late evening hours. There is still an Enhanced to Marginal risk over the area with the highest threat existing over most of our SETX Counties.

Activity will taper across the area from west to east late this afternoon and into the evening. Tomorrow is expected to be quiet, with additional rounds of activity expected tomorrow and Thursday as a boundary lingers in and around the area.

Long Term
(Friday through next Monday) Issued at 247pm CDT Tuesday May 28 2024

Not too much day to day change in the long term forecast with daily isolated to scattered showers during the afternoon to early evening periods. MaxTs will be in the mid 80s to lower 90s with MinTs in the 60s to 70s. Dewpoints will be stuck in the 70s, yielding MaxApts around the 90s range.

By Friday morning, the warm front will still be lifting north through the CWA (County Warning Area) with ongoing activity extending through the day. The upper level ridge will remain centered over Mexico with a series of disturbances moving across the CONUS over the long term period. The surface high pressure will be off to the east of us, allowing for nothing but moisture rich southerly flow to move into then just exist for the area.

As mentioned in the morning AFD, this set up will lead to an interesting dynamic where the relative unstable pattern will be competing against the stabilizing effect of the ridge. The chance for showers / storms and what we will see as far as max temps will depend upon that.

Marine
Surface high pressure ridge across the Northern Gulf of Mexico will result in a persistent, light onshore flow continuing well into the weekend. Expect isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms today through the end of the week.

The Severe Thunderstorm Watch is no longer in effect. There are still a few subsevere storms over the waters that will taper over the rest of the evening.
