SHORT TERM
 
/NEW/  
UPDATE:  
 
ONLY MINOR ADJUSTMENTS WERE MADE TO THE FORECAST WITH THIS  
UPDATE. TODAY WILL FEEL QUITE SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY, WITH HOT  
TEMPERATURES RISING INTO THE TRIPLE DIGITS EXPECTED. AS RIDGING  
CONTINUES TO SET IN FOR THE WEEK, A HEAT ADVISORY WILL LIKELY BE  
NEEDED ACROSS NORTH & CENTRAL TEXAS WEDNESDAY.  
 
GORDON  
 
PREVIOUS DISCUSSION:  
/THROUGH WEDNESDAY/  
 
MID-LEVEL RIDGING OVERHEAD WILL RESULT IN HOT AND RAIN-FREE  
CONDITIONS THROUGH THE MIDWEEK. WEATHER SIMILAR TO TODAY WILL  
DOMINATE THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS AS TEMPERATURES ALSO TAKE ON A  
SLIGHT WARMING TREND WITH THE STRENGTHENING RIDGE. HIGHS TUESDAY  
WILL CLIMB MOSTLY UP TO 100-102 RANGE, WITH A FEW ISOLATED AREAS  
REACHING 103-104. HEAT INDICES WILL REMAIN MOSTLY WITHIN A FEW  
DEGREES OF THE TRUE TEMPERATURES AS DECENT MIXING SHOULD TAKE  
PLACE AGAIN TOMORROW. WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW SPOTS POTENTIALLY  
HITTING THE 105 DEGREE HEAT INDEX CRITERIA FOR AN OFFICIAL HEAT  
ADVISORY, MOST AREAS WILL SEE PEAK HEAT INDICES REACHING THE 99 TO  
104 RANGE. AS SUCH, THERE ARE NO CURRENT PLANS TO ISSUE A HEAT  
ADVISORY FOR TUESDAY, BUT AN ADVISORY WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED  
WEDNESDAY WITH BOTH TEMPERATURES HITTING THE 103 MARK AND HEAT  
INDEX VALUES CLIMBING TO OR ABOVE 105 DEGREES ACROSS MUCH OF THE  
AREA.  
 
TUESDAY NIGHT WILL BE ANOTHER WARM NIGHT WITH LOWS IN THE MID 70S  
TO LOW 80S BEFORE TEMPERATURES QUICKLY CLIMB AGAIN DURING THE DAY  
WEDNESDAY. LOW LEVEL MOISTURE MOVING INTO EAST AND CENTRAL TEXAS  
DURING THE DAY WILL RESULT IN INCREASED HUMIDITY AND HIGHER HEAT  
INDICES IN THESE AREAS THAN TUESDAY. WITH NO RELIEF TO THE HEAT  
EXPECTED SOON, ENSURE PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN TO PROTECT AGAINST THE  
HEAT. NOW IS A GOOD TIME TO CHECK IN ON ANY FRIENDS OR FAMILY  
THAT MAY BE VULNERABLE TO THESE TEMPERATURES AND ENSURE  
PRECAUTIONS ARE TAKEN THIS WEEK TO STAY HYDRATED AND COOL.

LONG TERM
 
/ISSUED 244 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022/  
/THURSDAY ONWARD/  
 
LITTLE CHANGE TO THE ONGOING WEATHER IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE END  
OF THE WORK WEEK. A STOUT UPPER RIDGE WILL KEEP THE AREA HOT AND  
DRY WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES OVER 100 AND HEAT INDEX VALUES IN THE  
MID TO UPPER 100S. OUR CURRENT TEMPERATURE AND HEAT INDEX FORECAST  
INDICATES THAT A HEAT ADVISORY WILL LIKELY BE NEEDED THROUGH AT  
LEAST SATURDAY WITH PARTS OF THE AREA POTENTIALLY REQUIRING AN  
EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. NO DECISION ON HEAT  
HEADLINES HAS BEEN MADE AT THIS TIME, BUT PREPARATIONS TO MITIGATE  
HEAT-RELATED IMPACTS LATER THIS WEEK AND THIS UPCOMING WEEKEND  
WOULD BE WISE. SPEAKING OF THE WEEKEND, SATURDAY LOOKS TO BE THE  
HOTTEST DAY OF THE NEXT 7 DAYS AS DOWNSLOPE FLOW AND COMPRESSIONAL  
WARMING NUDGES TEMPERATURES EVEN HIGHER THAN THEY WOULD OTHERWISE.  
 
A SLIGHT PATTERN CHANGE IS POSSIBLE LATE IN THE WEEKEND AND EARLY  
NEXT WEEK AS THE UPPER RIDGE SHIFTS WEST. WITH THE ADDITION OF A  
WEAK FRONT AND LESS SUBSIDENCE, RAIN CHANCES COULD RETURN FOR SOME  
FROM SUNDAY ONWARD. HOWEVER, WE HAVE CAPPED POPS AT 10% SINCE OUR  
CONFIDENCE OF RAIN ON ANY GIVEN DAY/TIME IS LOW.

AVIATION
 
/NEW/  
/12Z TAFS/  
 
PATCHY LOW CLOUDS HAVE SPREAD NORTHEAST INTO CENTRAL TEXAS OVER  
THE PAST COUPLE OF HOURS. SCT025 WILL PREVAIL OVER THE NEXT FEW  
HOURS AT KACT, AND A BROKEN MVFR DECK MAY EVEN BRIEFLY OCCUR AT  
THIS MORNING, BUT ANY IMPACTS WOULD BE VERY SHORT IN DURATION.  
 
OTHERWISE, VFR WILL PREVAIL WITH SOUTH WINDS 10-15 KTS. OCCASIONAL  
GUSTINESS IS EXPECTED, MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOON, WITH GUSTS TO  
NEAR 20 KTS.
