AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE AUSTIN/SAN ANTONIO TX
244 AM CDT SUN AUG 2 2015

.SHORT TERM (TODAY THROUGH MONDAY)...
QUIET WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR THE UPCOMING FORECAST PERIOD AS HIGH
PRESSURE REMAINS IN CONTROL OF THE REGION. AT THE PRESENT TIME THE
RIDGE WAS LOCATED ACROSS THE WESTERN CONUS WITH THE EASTERN
PORTIONS OF THE RIDGE AXIS EXTENDING INTO TEXAS. SURFACE WINDS
WILL REMAIN LIGHT AND EASTERLY WHICH WILL KEEP THE DRIER DEWPOINTS
IN PLACE. ALTHOUGH HIGHS TODAY WILL TOP OUT IN THE UPPER 90S TO
102 DEGREES...HEAT INDICES WILL REMAIN BELOW 103 DEGREES. THE
UPPER RIDGE WILL FLATTEN A BIT AS A TROUGH PASSES THROUGH THE
NORTHWEST CONUS AND LITTLE CHANGE IS EXPECTED FOR SOUTH-CENTRAL
TEXAS. SURFACE WINDS WILL BE MORE SOUTHEASTERLY...WITH RELATIVELY
LIGHT SPEEDS. DEWPOINTS WILL SLOWLY RISE GIVEN THE SOUTHEAST
DIRECTION AND AFTERNOON HEAT INDICES MAY INCREASE A DEGREE OR TWO.

&&

.LONG TERM (MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY)...
WITHOUT ANY ADDITIONAL UPPER DISTURBANCES IMPACTING THE RIDGE FOR
THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK...THE HIGH WILL SLOWLY STRENGTHEN
THROUGH THURSDAY. AS THIS OCCURS...HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL SLOWLY
INCREASE EACH DAY WITH TRIPLE DEGREE HEAT EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE
AREA BY THURSDAY. AFTERNOON HEAT INDICES COULD BE AS HIGH AS 110
DEGREES FOR PORTIONS OF THE AREA AND THIS WILL HAVE TO BE WATCHED
FOR ANY HIGHLIGHTS AS WE GET CLOSER TO THIS TIME PERIOD. BY THE
END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD...THE UPPER HIGH WILL SLIGHTLY SHIFT
EAST AS A TROUGH MOVES INTO THE WEST COAST. AS IT DOES SO...850
TEMPS WILL INCREASE TO 25C OR HIGHER ACROSS THE CWA AND WE COULD
SEE OUR HOTTEST TEMPERATURES OF THE YEAR BY SATURDAY.
