Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 10:51 PM CDT on August 4, 2015


... Elevated heat index values for the remainder of this week into
this weekend...

Elevated heat index values will continue through at least
Saturday as high pressure builds back over south central Texas.
Heat index values will approach but remain below heat advisory
criteria of 108 in the coastal plains and 110 in the Rio Grande
plains. Elsewhere... heat index values will be in the 100 to 105
range... except lower in parts of The Hill Country. The highest
threat day for heat advisories is Saturday. The highest threat
area is near the coastal plains. Humidities will decrease Sunday
into early next week bringing lower heat index values.

In addition to high heat index values... direct exposure to
sunlight can also contribute to dehydration and an increased
likelihood of heat related illness. Take extra precautions if you
plan to be outside. When possible... reschedule strenuous afternoon
activities for the early morning or evening hours. Know the signs
and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

If you are outdoors... drink plenty of water... wear light weight
and light colored clothing... and take frequent breaks from the
heat. Never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle... as
interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes
after turning off the air conditioning. Beat the heat... check the
back seat!

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
1256 am CDT Wednesday Aug 5 2015 


Aviation.../06z tafs/ 
main forecast issue tonight will be the MVFR ceilings expected to 
develop by 8z at Sat/ssf and 9z at aus before lifting to VFR 
between 13-14z. Although confidence is lower at aus than 
Sat/ssf...stronger 5-10 knots southerly winds tonight should allow 
these low clouds to be more widespread and persistent than last 
night. Southerly winds should increase to 10-15 knots during the day 
tomorrow at all taf sites. 




&& 


Previous discussion... /issued 645 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015/ 


Aviation... 
few/scattered clouds are persisting at all taf sites at the present hour 
and this will continue until around 8-9z for the I-35 taf sites as 
another round of morning MVFR stratus is expected. VFR will 
return by 15z. Otherwise...southerly flow around 10-15 knots will 
continue through the period. 


Previous discussion... /issued 222 PM CDT Tuesday Aug 4 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Wednesday night)... 
deeper moisture has returned to south central Texas with precipitable waters  of 1.6 
to 2 inches. Some showers and thunderstorms are possible across 
areas near the coastal plains this afternoon. The deeper moisture 
lingers into Wednesday with the subtropical ridge remaining over 
the southwestern states. Dewpoints will not easily mix out keeping 
heat index values elevated on Wednesday with values approaching 
heat advisory levels of 108 near the coastal plains. Cannot rule 
out one or two showers near the coastal plains Wednesday afternoon 
along the seabreeze. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
the subtropical ridge becomes centered over the Southern Plains on 
Thursday and remains there through Tuesday. Temperatures will rise 
a degree or two as boundary layer warms and thicknesses increase. 
A moderate onshore flow maintains a supply of lower level moisture 
causing heat index values to rise. Heat advisory criteria will be 
approached and could be briefly reached in the afternoon near the 
coastal plains with Saturday being the highest threat day. Will 
continue mention in hazardous weather outlook and special weather 
statements. Onshore flow weakens next week allowing lower level 
moisture to decrease lowering the heat index. Strong subsidence 
and middle to upper level drying leading to below normal moisture 
levels with precipitable waters  of 1 to 1.6 inches shall keep rain out of the 
forecast. 


Just beyond this forecast for the middle of next week...some 
models are showing the ridge drifting to the west and allowing a 
surface boundary to move close to south central Texas along with 
an increase of moisture leading to showers and thunderstorms.
