Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
646 PM CST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Update... 
visibilities are dropping across the area with San Antonio 
International Airport already at 1/4 of a mile. This trend should 
continue with winds becoming weak and from the south aiding in 
increasing warm/moist advection at the surface. Issued a dense fog 
advisory until 10 am tomorrow for all but the western counties 
where visibilities should remain above 1/4 of a mile. Products 
have been sent.

Previous discussion... /issued 532 PM CST Monday Mar 2 2015/ 


Aviation discussion...for 00z taf package... 
poor aviation conditions will continue through this taf period. 
Similar to previous tafs...IFR/LIFR conditions are expected 
throughout the period due to a saturated low level atmosphere. 
Surface winds will shift to the southeast overnight and visible will 
lower as a result...as will ceilings. Thus included LIFR fog and ceilings 
to kaus/ksat/kssf overnight.

Previous discussion... /issued 334 PM CST Monday Mar 2 2015/ 


Short term (tonight through Tuesday night)... 
cloudy skies...northerly winds and cool temperatures are still 
intact across all of south central Texas as of late this afternoon. 
Temperatures as of 02/20z were generally in the upper 30s to upper 
40s across the region. For tonight...cloud cover will remain thick 
as low-level winds gradually transition to a more southerly 
direction. With an increased moist...southerly flow in the 
low-levels...we/ll maintain a 20-30% chance for rain across most 
areas tonight. Finally...areas of fog can also be expected as cool 
and moist air along with light winds dominate the boundary layer. 
Fog continues into Tuesday morning along with a slight chance of 
showers through the day. Temperatures will warm tomorrow given the 
increase in southerly flow. Most of the model guidance appears too 
warm as we expect mostly cloudy to cloudy skies tomorrow. We/ll 
trend toward the lower side of guidance with high temperatures 
mainly in the 60s on Tuesday. The weather pattern begins to turn a 
little more interesting Tuesday night as an upper level trough moves 
into the Desert Southwest. We/ll mention a 20-30% chance for rain 
along with an isolated thunderstorm possible mainly north of U.S. 
Highway 90. 


Long term (wednesday through monday)... 
the above mentioned upper level trough continues to approach on 
Wednesday. A Pacific cold front will move in from the west during 
the morning hours...quickly followed by an Arctic cold front moving 
in from the north. The cold front will bring sharply cooler 
temperatures along with gusty north winds during the afternoon and 
evening hours. Concerns for wintry precipitation will be on the 
increase during the evening hours across The Hill Country and 
southern Edwards Plateau. Forecast soundings favor a freezing rain 
and sleet mix given the shallow...cold air in the low-levels along 
with a pronounced warm layer just above the low-level cold air. 
During the early morning hours on Thursday...the wintry 
precipitation threat will drop southward to just north of a del 
Rio...San Antonio...La Grange line. Again...most areas can expect a 
freezing rain and sleet mix...with some snow possible across the 
southern Edwards Plateau...Hill Country and I-35 Corridor North of 
San Antonio. By early Thursday afternoon...temperatures should rise 
above freezing with the precipitation type transitioning back to all 
liquid. 


Cool temperatures remain in the forecast on Friday with highs 
generally in the 40s. Temperatures warm slightly on Saturday but 
remain below normal. The medium range models also suggest an upper 
level trough will move in from the west on Saturday. We/ll maintain 
a 20-30% chance for showers across most areas on Saturday...with 
precipitation shifting east into the coastal plains on Sunday.
