Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
234 PM CDT Wed Jun 3 2020

.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Thursday Night)...
This pesky upper low is still allowing for some convection along the
Coastal Plains, and some isolated activity along the I-35 corridor.
These showers should be quick passing, as there is limited moisture
to work with as the upper ridging to the west is trying to nudge in.
It is otherwise quiet in the short term. Tomorrow showers should be
confined to the Coastal Plains and more isolated in coverage as we
get more dominance of the upper ridge. Temperatures are still on the
increase, with highs reaching more normal values of the lower 90s.

&&

.LONG TERM (Friday through Wednesday)...
The warming trend continues into the weekend as the center of the
500 mb high will be over Chihuahua/SW Texas/southern NM on Friday
before slowly drifting NE toward Missouri by Sunday. Dry conditions
will also persist through this period. Tropical Storm Cristobal will
continue to hang around the Bay of Campeche/Yucatan Peninsula through
Friday before finally moving northward into the west-central Gulf of
Mexico this weekend. The most recent guidance suggests Cristobal
making landfall somewhere along the Louisiana coast late Sunday into
early Monday before continuing north into Arkansas and eventually up
into the Midwest by midweek. This would keep South Central Texas dry
with high temperatures soaring into the upper 90s to upper 100s for
Monday through Wednesday, with Tuesday looking like the hottest day,
thanks to subsidence on the western side of the tropical system.
Afternoon relative humidities will also likely drop into the teens
and twenties on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, and this paired
with very hot temperatures could lead to elevated fire weather
conditions (although recent heavy rains and relatively light winds
should keep fire weather concerns tempered).
