AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CORPUS CHRISTI TX
403 PM CDT TUE JUL 28 2015

.SHORT TERM (TONIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY NIGHT)...EXITING UPPER
TROUGH MOVING FARTHER WEST ACROSS TEXAS INTO THE BIG BEND REGION
WILL LEAD TO THE UPPER RIDGE BUILDING BACK IN WITH CONTINUED
SUBSIDENCE AND DRIER AIR OVER SOUTH TEXAS TONIGHT. HOWEVER
MOISTURE REMAINS ELEVATED AT THE SURFACE ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN COASTAL BEND WHERE LOCATIONS ARE EXPERIENCING HEAT INDEX
VALUES GREATER THAN 110 THIS AFTERNOON. ELSEWHERE...HEAT INDEX
VALUES OF 105 TO 109 WILL CONTINUE...WITH ALL VALUES TO FALL BELOW
CRITERIA THIS EVENING AS THE SUN GOES DOWN. FOR TONIGHT...STILL
BELIEVE THERE IS ENOUGH MOISTURE TO ALLOW FOR STRATUS TO DEVELOP
WITH THE LLJ...BUT WILL BE SCATTERED TO BROKEN...WITH SLIGHTLY
COOLER OVERNIGHT TEMPS ACROSS THE INLAND AREAS. FOR
WEDNESDAY...SIMILAR CONDITIONS WILL SET UP...HOWEVER MODELS ARE
PICKING UP ON A STRIP OF MOISTURE MOVING IN FROM THE WESTERN
GULF...AND WITH A BRIEF PERIOD OF COOLER TEMPS AT H85...AN
ISOLATED SHOWER OR TWO IS POSSIBLE UNDERNEATH THE CAP. THIS MAY
ALSO LEAD TO A PERIOD OF HEAT INDEX VALUES REACHING NEAR 110
AGAIN...BUT FOR MOST AREAS 105 TO 109 IS EXPECTED.


&&

.LONG TERM (THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY)...CONTINUED HOT AND DRY
CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED THURSDAY...BUT CHANCES FOR RAIN ARE
EXPECTED TO RETURN BY FRIDAY AS THE MAIN UPPER RIDGE SHIFTS TO THE
NORTH AND NORTHWEST ALLOWING FOR A SHORTWAVE TO MOVE THROUGH THE
GREAT LAKES REGION SENDING OUT SHORTWAVE ENERGY RIDING THE EASTERN
PERIPHERY OF THE RIDGE SOUTH ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN STATES THEN
WEST TOWARD THE TEXAS COAST. THIS WILL BRING INCREASED MOISTURE
WITH PWATS OF NEAR 2 INCHES ALONG WITH ISOLATED TO SCATTERED
SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THE UPPER RIDGE WILL SLOWLY BUILD BACK
SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE WEEKEND...SHUNTING THE MOISTURE SOUTH...WITH
SLIGHT CHANCES FOR RAIN POSSIBLE FOR SATURDAY/SUNDAY BUT MAINLY
FOR THE GULF WATERS. OUTSIDE OF THIS...TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN
HOT...WITH TEMPS SLIGHTLY COOLER FOR THE FRIDAY TIMEFRAME.
