Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
333 AM CDT Fri Apr 19 2019

.SHORT TERM (Today through Saturday)...
Another sunny and dry day today as high pressure at the surface as
northwest flow continues to filter through drier and slightly cooler
temperatures. Gusty winds return this afternoon before weakening
again after sunset tonight. Outdoor plans for the weekend should
hold up as no significant weather is expected. Saturday, southerly
winds return increasing moisture and initiating a warming trend.

&&

.LONG TERM (Saturday Night through Thursday)...
By Sunday, weak disturbances in the flow aloft move through the area
starting in the afternoon. These disturbances should only slightly
increase cloud coverage, and no precip is expected. Temperatures on
Easter Sunday will top out in the low 90s for the Rio Grande Plains,
and low to mid 80s elsewhere. Entering into the workweek, an
approaching upper level trough deepens in the southwest US and slowly
makes its eastward progression. This will increase our rain chances
for Monday evening though Thursday. The models have depicted areas of
potentially heavy rain for our area Wednesday and Thursday, though
this will be largely dependent on the progression of this system and
position of associated dryline and cold front. Have maintained the
higher POPs for those days, but will hold off on specifics until a
clearer picture is painted as this system develops.


.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1223 AM CDT Fri Apr 19 2019/

AVIATION...
VFR conditions through the TAF period. Mid level clouds will skirt

through Friday afternoon. The winds are then forecast to weaken
quickly after sunset Friday.
