Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
247 PM CDT FRI JUL 1 2016

.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Saturday Night)...
Partly cloudy skies are prevailing across South-Central Texas with
temperatures currently in the lower to middle 90s across the area.
The cu field looks best across the southeastern CWA where there
have been a few showers this afternoon. Additional updrafts can be
seen on visible satellite across the northern Hill Country and
into the Concho Valley, but nothing has shown up on area radars
from this activity. Can`t rule out a stray shower in this region
but will only mention isolated activity in the official forecast
across the southeastern CWA where moisture is best and where we
have already seen some activity today.

For tonight, lows will drop down in the lower to middle 70s with
mostly clear skies becoming partly to mostly cloudy by daybreak.
There was some patchy fog last night, and while there could be
some tonight, the forecast soundings do not seem to be that
favorable. Tomorrow should be rain free for most of the area as
the ridge continues to build in. Can`t rule out an isolated shower
somewhere, but chances are too low to mention at this time. High
temperatures tomorrow will be a degree or two warmer than today.

.LONG TERM (Sunday through Friday)...
The heat is expected to really turn on during the beginning of the
long-term forecast. While the subtropical ridge will be in place
across South Texas, a weak trough will pass through the central
plains. This will allow southerly flow to increase in the period
which will help dewpoint values slightly climb and will ensure
little mixing in the afternoons. The higher moisture content will
be across the eastern CWA and heat indices beginning Sunday should
be between 105-110 degrees mainly east of Interstate 35. These
elevated heat index values are expected to persist into the middle
of next week. A Heat Advisory will likely be needed for some of
the eastern counties beginning on Sunday. With the ridge remaining
in control, rain chances look to be near zero for the next 7 days.
