Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:01 am CDT on July 29, 2015


... Elevated afternoon heat index values continue on today...

High temperatures will again reach into the upper 90s to near 103
across much of south central Texas today. A humid airmass will
persist... making for heat index values in the 102 to 108 degree
range... with the higher readings expected generally south of a
line from del Rio to Bulverde to Giddings.

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 can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
Beat the heat... check the back seat!

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio Texas 
635 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Aviation... 
MVFR ceilings currently along the I-35 corridor as well as 
stretching into The Hill Country and coastal plains. They are not 
making much headway west but cant rule out drt getting hit with 
some ceilings in an hour or two. Left drt in with just scattered for 
now. Ceilings should burn off by late morning...transitioning to 
mostly sunny in the PM. Look for less coverage of low clouds 
tomorrow morning with a bit more middle clouds. Southerly winds 10-15 
knots today.

Previous discussion... /issued 321 am CDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015/ 


Short term (today through thursday)... 
strong upper ridge remains dominant over Texas. The ridge center is 
over Arkansas/eastern OK this morning and will be making a westward shift 
across OK into northwest Texas through Thursday. Little change in the day- 
to-day weather is expected today...as another Special Weather Statement is warranted to 
mentioned heat indices up to 108 over southern counties. Daytime 
highs will continue to flirt with the century mark as aus/Sat both 
reached 99 for the first time this year on Tuesday. Onshore 
boundary layer winds weaken for Thursday...and this may be the 
change needed to reduce humidities and allow aus/Sat to reach 
their first 100 degree day of the year. 


Long term (thursday night through tuesday)... 
increasing easterly winds above 850 hpa shown in GFS/NAM model 
time sections correlate with an increasing middle-level moist layer 
that could trigger a few evening showers and thunderstorms that 
could impact eastern counties including the Austin area. Gusty 
outflows over the dry air below could become quite strong...and 
will probably lead to a quick end to rain chances Thursday night. 
However moisture will continue building into the area from the 
east and a more broad coverage of convection is expected for 
Friday. Probability of precipitation are to remain low and capped at 30 percent as 
measurable rainfall amounts will be up against dcape values of 
1000 j/kg or more to ensure strong downdrafts and short storm 
life. Another mainly diurnal round of convection could impact the 
area Saturday with the emphasis shifting more to western counties. 
Blended model guidance still points at some of the hottest ambient 
temperatures of the week to be over the weekend with some dry air 
pulling SW from the Arkansas-la-tex region. However...this trend is 
softened up from earlier runs as more recent runs show higher 
moisture content in the middle levels. This could buy US an extra day 
of afternoon convection on Sunday should the trend continue. For 
now...will stick with the blended guidance for more hot and dry 
weather Sunday into the middle of next week.
