Short Term - Today Through Tuesday
An upper level analysis shows a broad trough moving across the northeast CONUS, another one coming into the PAC NW and a ridge encompassing pretty much everywhere else. The center of that ridge has been gradually shifting east and is now quite close to the CWA. There seems to be quite a bit of moisture still caught inside the ridge as models indicating PW's in the low 2" range. So while temps should increase with 500mb heigheights rising and some subsidence induced suppression of convection may occur, probably still looking at scattered thunderstorms each day during this period. The only appreciable change made to the forecast from NBM is higher POPs in the daily 00Z-03Z timeframe. NBM likes to drop coverage drastically after 00Z while typical dissipation of convection usually takes a few hours to actually occur. Forecast highs are between the 50th and 75th percentile range of the NBM, which is low/mid 90s and slightly above normal.

Long Term - Tuesday through Saturday
The overall forecast really doesn't change that much for the local area. Still looking at daily afternoon thunderstorms over land areas and nocturnal marine convection. The eventual location of the center of the ridge will play into what actual convective coverage is. The further it is away from the local area, the higher the rain chances will be and vice versa. While medium range operational GFS and ECMWF (European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts) showed slightly different movements of that ridge, today's runs look fairly similar with the center slowly retrograding west as the week progresses. NBM POPs are on the wetter side and today's forecast is no different.

Marine
Surface high pressure will generally remain centered in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. This location will keep winds onshore and its proximity to the local coastal waters will only support winds in the 5-10kt range in the day and 8-13kt range at night. Daily showers and thunderstorms continue to be the main concern as scattered to numerous showers and storms persist. Coverage may decrease (but not disappear entirely) Monday as a weak upper level high pressure builds into the area, with only isolated to scattered convection in the forecast. A slight increase is expected to follow.
