.AVIATION...

The overnight hours will remain VFR at all sites, with winds becoming
light and variable late tonight at AUS and turning due east at 3-5
knots at SAT/SSF. Winds at DRT will remain southeasterly at around 10
knots tonight. MVFR cigs will develop by around 11Z at DRT, and
are also possible at SAT briefly by around 12-13Z for a couple of
hours although confidence is lower there. At this time, MVFR cannot
be ruled out at SSF but is unlikely. Winds will increase to 5-10
knots out of the SE Monday at the I-35 sites and to 15 knots at DRT,
where VFR conditions should return by 20Z.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 209 PM CST Sun Mar 7 2021/

SHORT TERM (Today through Monday)...
Get out and enjoy this beautiful Sunday afternoon while you still
can! Mostly sunny skies with highs in the 60s are forecast for this
afternoon with southeasterly winds, a bit breezy at times across the
Hill Country and Edwards Plateau. Looking at the weather maps for
today through tomorrow night at the surface high pressure currently
situated to the northeast of Texas will continue to push eastward
allowing winds through the period to transition more out of the
south. This will bring a bit of Gulf moisture back into the area
helping temperatures to warm through the week and adding some cloud
cover over the coming days. The high though will continue to promote
sinking air keeping South Central Texas dry for most of the week. At
the upper levels a weak shortwave can be seen in the GOES-16 Water
Vapor over West Texas. It will traverse the state this afternoon
through Monday morning, but with very limited moisture (dewpoints in
the 30s and low 40s) and the already mentioned high pressure in
place no precipitation is expected. Lows tonight are expected to be
3-5 degrees warmer than last night (thanks in part to increasing
cloud cover), with highs tomorrow 2-4 degrees warmer than tonight.
That translate to lows tonight in the mid to upper 40s and highs
tomorrow in the lower 70s. The warm up trend continues as lows
Monday night into Tuesday should only cool to the mid-50s, under
mostly cloudy skies.

LONG TERM (Monday Night through Saturday)...
The warming and moistening trend will continue through much of
the work week we maintain southerly flow in the low-levels.Southerly
winds will be gusty during the late morning through afternoon hours
for much of the upcoming week. The next upper low approaches from the
northwest late in the week. A chance for showers and thunderstorms
is expected late this week on beginning Friday into the weekend with
the next upper system. The upper low will send a front the area
possibly Saturday, with timing still an issue. As the week
progresses, finer timing and precipitation details can be worked out.
