AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AUSTIN/SAN ANTONIO TX
339 PM CST SUN DEC 21 2014

.SHORT TERM (TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY NIGHT)...
CLEARING HAS BEEN VERY STUBBORN THIS AFTERNOON BUT AREAS OUT WEST
AND SOUTHWEST ARE FINALLY STARTING TO SHOW SOME SUNSHINE. UPPER
TROF AXIS IS OVER THE STATE RIGHT NOW WITH MORE CLOUDINESS AND
MOISTURE UPSTREAM OVER THE ROCKIES. MOST AREAS WILL CLOUD BACK UP
OVERNIGHT AND HAVE MENTIONED SOME PATCHY FOG OVER SOUTHERN AREAS.
AREAS THAT CLEAR THIS EVENING WILL HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF GETTING
THE FOG.  LOW AND MID LEVEL WIND FIELDS WILL HAVE A WESTERLY
COMPONENT ON MONDAY MEANING WARMER TEMPERATURES AND MORE SUNSHINE.
MOST AREAS SHOULD REACH INTO THE 70S. SHOULD BE A VERY PLEASANT
DAY. ALTHOUGH WE LOSE THE LOW CLOUDS TOMORROW NIGHT WE WILL STILL
HAVE SOME MID AND HIGH CLOUDS AROUND WITH THE UPSTREAM SYSTEM OVER
THE ROCKIES. LOWS MONDAY NIGHT EXPECTED TO BE IN THE 40S TO LOW
50S.

&&

.LONG TERM (TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY)...
WILL SEE A COLD FRONT PUSH THROUGH THE CWA EARLY TUE MORNING WHILE A
DEEP TROF DEVELOPS OVER THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN PLAINS. AN UPPER
WAVE WILL PUSH SE OUT OF THE ROCKIES ON TUE WITH SOME OF ITS
ENERGY STAYING OVER SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS EARLY WED. WITH THE COLD
FRONT AND UPPER LEVEL TROFFING...LOOKS LIKE TUE WILL BE MOSTLY
CLOUDY AND COOLER. 700 MB TROF AXIS SHIFTS EAST LATE TUE NIGHT
WHICH SHOULD MEAN A CLEARING PATTERN ON WED ALTHOUGH TEMPS WILL
REMAIN COOL AS THE SURFACE HIGH REMAINS OVER WEST TEXAS AND THE
ROCKIES. THE UPPER PATTERN FLATTENS AS TEXAS IS AT THE BASE OF A
LONG WAVE TROFFING PATTERN ACROSS MOST OF THE COUNTRY BY MID WEEK.
MOISTURE LEVELS WILL REMAIN LOW FOR THU AND FRI WHICH WILL
TRANSLATE TO MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES...COOL/COLD NIGHTS...AND COOL
AFTERNOON HIGHS IN THE 60S. WILL SEE A RETURN OF MORNING LOWS IN
THE 30S MIDDLE TO THE END OF THE WEEK. ANOTHER COLD FRONT IS
FORECAST FOR FRIDAY BUT SHOULD COME THROUGH DRY AS THERE WILL BE
LITTLE TO NO MOISTURE TO WORK WITH.
