Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Austin/San Antonio TX
222 PM CST Fri Feb 15 2019

.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Sunday Night)...
Record heat is underway across much of South Central Texas this
afternoon with both Austin sites and Del Rio already breaking their
record highs for today the 15th. However, this will be short lived
as a cold front currently moving south of the Red River is expected
to move across much of our area tonight into early Saturday morning.
Patchy fog is possible near the Coastal Plains late this evening into
overnight before the cold front passes through that area. The cold
airmass behind the front will be rather shallow at less than 1,000
feet based on forecast soundings. As a result, insolation will mix
the front to the east allowing for well above normal temperatures
across the Hill Country to the Rio Grande Plains, east into the San
Antonio area on Saturday. Further east, temperatures return to near
normal. A rather sharp temperature gradient is possible, most likely
just east of the Highway 281 corridor, though this location could
change depending on the amount of mixing. The front retreats to the
north Saturday evening. Patchy fog is possible near the Coastal
Plains. A Pacific front moves across our area late Saturday night
into early Sunday morning bringing slight chances of light rain
showers to near the Coastal Plains. One more day of above normal
temperatures is expected on Sunday, before the next surge of a colder
airmass.

&&

.LONG TERM (Monday through Friday)...
This surge of a modified Canadian airmass is expected on Monday. In
its wake, surface ridging settles into our area for much of the week
while upper level troughing remains generally over the western
states. Weak impulses riding the flow southwesterly flow aloft over
area will cause isentropic lift resulting in light rain showers
Monday night through Tuesday night and again Wednesday night through
Thursday. Below to well below normal temperatures are expected due to
the clouds and rain.
