.AVIATION...
At KAUS/KSAT/KSSF, VFR skies and northeasterly winds around 10 KTs
prevail tonight through Tuesday. At KDRT, a frontal passage brings
low end VFR CIGs AOA FL035 with some SHRA in the VCNTY or briefly at
the site on easterly winds around 10 KTs this evening. There is a
potential of high end MVFR CIGs around FL026 as the SHRA moistens the
lower levels, however, chances are too low to mention. CIGs
gradually rise as winds turn southeasterly on Tuesday.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 236 PM CDT Mon Mar 25 2019/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday Night)...

Current satellite shows clearing behind a progressing cold front.
The front has moved through most of the area and is hung up near
Corpus. Winds have become more northeasterly and as weak high
pressure ridging begins to move in, the area will continue to dry
out. Residual moisture with the front could produce some weak
isolated showers along the Rio Grande and the southern counties of
our CWA. Under clearer skies in our northeastern counties, tonight`s
lows will get down to upper 40s and lower 50s. For counties out west
with continued cloud cover, lows will stay in the low 60s. Tuesday
will be pleasant with temperatures near normal in the mid 70s for
most of the area.

LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday)...
By Wednesday, southeasterly winds return as does the moisture. We
will see some slight warming from Wednesday through Friday, getting
back up the 80s for some of the area. The remainder of the work week
will keep a dry forecast. The next approaching system will move
across the Central Plains on Friday and drag another cold front
across the South Central Texas on Saturday and into Sunday. The GFS
continues to be more aggressive with this front but has yet to remain
consistent. Chances for showers with some isolated thunder with this
frontal passage.
