AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AUSTIN/SAN ANTONIO TX
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 CWA THIS AFTERNOON AS MOISTURE CONTINUES TO FUNNEL
NORTHWARD FROM SOUTH TEXAS. VIS SATELLITE SHOWS THE MORE STABLE
AND DRIER AIR PRESENT OVER THE PLATEAU AREA AS CU 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 SFC LOW PRESSURE CENTER WILL INTENSIFY FROM THE TEXAS PANHANDLE
TOMORROW AFTERNOON AND TIGHTEN THE SFC 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
CWA AND COULD PRODUCE SOME ISALLOBARIC WIND GUSTS UP TO 25 OR 30
MPH 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 CWA...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.
