...New SHORT TERM, LONG TERM...

.SHORT TERM...
(Today through Wednesday)
Issued at 118 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

The upper level ridge is forecast to center northwest of the area,
with the southeast periphery of the ridge still maintaining an
influence over most of the area today. With the exception of a 10-
20% chance of stray to isolated tropical showers across portions of
Lavaca and DeWitt counties this afternoon, the area is forecast to
remain dry, warm, and humid today. We saw a few locations east of I-
35 briefly reach heat advisory criteria late yesterday, and with
temperatures at or slightly warmer today we are forecasting a larger
area of peak heat index values of 105-110 degrees along and east of
the I-35 and I-37 corridors. We have issued a Heat Advisory for this
area today and another advisory on Wednesday could be required.

.LONG TERM...
(Wednesday night through Monday)
Issued at 118 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

The long term forecast will continue to revolve around the influence
of a 500mb Subtropical Ridge in place over the southwestern and
south-central CONUS. Hot and dry weather is expected area-wide
Thursday as temperatures soar into the mid to upper 90s. Heat
indices will likely climb into Heat Advisory territory for the
Coastal Plains, and perhaps as far west as the I-35 Corridor. A
similar setup can be expected on Friday, however, 500mb heights
weaken just a bit, opening the door for some seabreeze activity over
the Coastal Plains by late afternoon. Temperatures will remain in
the mid to upper 90s with heat indices in the 108-112 range over the
Coastal Plains and portions of the I-35 Corridor. This daily chance
at a shower or storm will continue through the weekend into early
next week as weak easterly flow remains in place on the southern
periphery of the Subtropical Ridge. Expect typical Summer heat
through early next week with highs in the 90s and heat indices in
the 105-110 range.

.AVIATION...
(06Z TAFS)
Issued at 1215 AM CDT Tue Jun 25 2024

Patchy stratus is beginning to form north of a UVA-HDO-SAT line. The
stratus will expand in coverage across the Hill Country and I-35
corridor through the overnight, and potentially into the Rio Grande
briefly 12Z-14Z. Mainly MVFR ceilings are expected with this stratus,
however some patchy IFR ceilings are possible across the Hill
Country. The stratus is expected to gradually scatter out 15Z-17Z
with VFR conditions thereafter.
