NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
256 PM CDT sun Jul 5 2015 


Short term (tonight through Monday night)... 
very light isolated showers continue to bubble over the eastern 
half of the County Warning Area this afternoon as moisture continues to funnel 
northward from south Texas. Visible satellite shows the more stable 
and drier air present over the plateau area as cumulus development is 
not occurring there. Isentropic lift and daytime heating will 
likely not be enough to overcome the weak cap in place over the 
region. Also...dry air aloft and a fzl above 14kft will make 
thunder difficult to come by this afternoon. Models bring in some 
low level dry air tonight and that plus loss of daytime heating 
should stomp out any showers by 00z-ish. 


A surface low pressure center will intensify from the Texas Panhandle 
tomorrow afternoon and tighten the surface pressure gradient across 
south central Texas. This will make the afternoon hours pretty 
breezy with sustained 15-20 kts advertised in the MOS guidance. 
Pressure falls look pretty rapid over the afternoon across the maf 
County Warning Area and could produce some isallobaric wind gusts up to 25 or 30 
miles per hour on the plateau and higher elevations. 


&& 


Long term (tuesday through sunday)... 
ridge amplification and movement will be the story of the week as 
the Summer like conditions look to prevail throughout the next 7 
days. Moisture trapped within the ridge center will continue to 
produce showers and storms out in Mexico and West Texas through 
the Panhandle. A couple upper level shortwaves will act to produce 
some storm activity well north of the County Warning Area...and there still is the 
off chance for US to inherit a dying system in the northern zones 
Wednesday night but still looks like this is unlikely. 
Otherwise...continued drying of the atmosphere and soils will 
result in a gradual warming trend in temperatures through the 
weekend.
