NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
320 PM CDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Short term (tonight through Friday night)... 
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are continuing 
east of Interstate 35 this afternoon. This activity is in response 
to increasing moisture and lift associated with the broad low 
pressure system in the western Gulf of Mexico. As the activity 
pushes west...near the I-35 corridor...the showers and storms are 
dissipating due to limited moisture. Dew points in these locations 
are in the middle 60s versus the lower 70s in the southeastern 
zones. These showers and storms are primarily diurnally driven 
and should weaken and dissipate around sunset. 


Lows tonight are expected to be in the lower to middle 70s across 
much of the area. There could be some left over showers and storms 
in the eastern zones as well as weakening convection near Val 
Verde County this evening from storms moving east in West Texas. 
Some of the high-res guidance is hinting at overnight storms 
regenerating across the eastern zones. This can be somewhat 
expected from tropical systems...the main questions are if and 
where any convection will develop near daybreak. Low probability of precipitation across 
the eastern zones should cover this. 


Friday should be somewhat similar to today. The main lift 
associated with the upper trough currently in Colorado will push 
north of the area. Thus...the main lift will pass north as well. 
There should be a weak shear axis to the south of the low and 
this should allow a slight increase to the expected coverage of 
showers and thunderstorms for tomorrow. Precipitable water values will be greater 
than 2 inches for the eastern zones and some locally heavy 
rainfall will be possible. 


&& 


Long term (saturday through thursday)... 
lingering convection will remain possible Saturday across much of 
the area. The low pressure system currently in the Gulf of Mexico 
will be slow to move and we will be in a favorable location of 
increased moisture and diurnal lift associated with day time 
heating. Probability of precipitation will linger across the eastern zones Sunday and a 
dry forecast is expected on Monday as weak ridging returns to the 
area. The weak ridge shifts east by Tuesday and will keep low 
chances of rain in the forecast for the southeastern zones in the 
extended forecast. 850 temperatures next week remain in the 18-22c range 
and temperatures should remain below the 100 degree mark for most 
locations.
