SHORT TERM
 
 
(THIS EVENING THROUGH FRIDAY)  
ISSUED AT 217 PM CDT THU JUL 29 2021  
 
AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE, CURRENTLY CENTERED OVER KANSAS, WILL REMAIN  
IN PLACE AND PERHAPS GRADUALLY SHIFT A BIT INTO NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA  
ON FRIDAY. OUR AREA WILL REMAIN ON THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THIS  
RIDGE. WITH SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY AND A PERSISTENT EAST-SOUTHEAST  
FLOW WITH LOW- TO MID-LEVEL MOISTURE, HAVE A POSSIBILITY OF  
ISOLATED OR WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS  
AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN SOME OF OUR EASTERN COUNTIES, MAINLY EAST  
OF A CLYDE TO BRADY TO JUNCTION LINE. EXPECT THE CONVECTION TO  
DISSIPATE WITH THE LOSS OF HEATING, WITH MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS FOR  
OUR AREA TONIGHT. WARM AND HUMID CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED OVERNIGHT  
WITH MOSTLY CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES, AND LOWS 70-75 DEGREES.  
 
OVERALL CONDITIONS ON FRIDAY ARE EXPECTED TO BE SIMILAR TO TODAY  
WITH MOSTLY CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES, AND AFTERNOON HIGHS 93-97  
DEGREES. ISOLATED OR WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL  
BE POSSIBLE, MAINLY IN THE AFTERNOON ACROSS THE SOUTHEASTERN PART  
OF OUR AREA. CARRYING SLIGHT CHANCE POP SOUTHEAST OF A SAN SABA  
TO SONORA LINE. CANNOT RULE OUT AN ISOLATED SHOWER OR STORM IN  
OTHER PARTS OF OUR AREA, BUT CONFIDENCE IS TOO LOW FOR A MENTIONABLE  
POP PLACEMENT AT THIS TIME.  
 

 
   
LONG TERM
 
 
(FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH NEXT THURSDAY)  
ISSUED AT 207 PM CDT THU JUL 29 2021  
 
A 500MB RIDGE OVER KANSAS WILL PERSIST THROUGH SATURDAY AND WEST  
CENTRAL TEXAS WILL REMAIN AT THE SOUTHERN PERIPHERY OF THIS FEATURE.  
WHILE THIS SHOULD ALLOW HOT TEMPERATURES TO CONTINUE, A FEW  
SHORTWAVE IMPULSES MOVING FROM EAST TO WEST ACROSS SOUTH TEXAS MAY  
BRING SOME ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR ISOLATED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS  
IN THE AFTERNOON. ANY STORMS THAT DEVELOP COULD PRODUCE LOCALLY  
HEAVY RAIN OR BRIEF GUSTY WINDS.  
 
GLOBAL MODELS ARE IN AGREEMENT ON A PATTERN CHANGE SETTING UP FOR  
MUCH OF NEXT WEEK. A BROAD TROUGH OVER THE GREAT LAKES WILL  
CONTINUE TO DIG SOUTHWARD OVER THE EASTERN US, WHICH SHOULD ALLOW  
THE UPPER RIDGE OVER THE CENTRAL US TO BREAK DOWN AND PUSH A SURFACE  
COLD FRONT THROUGH CENTRAL TEXAS BY LATE SUNDAY. MODELS ALSO SHOW  
PWAT VALUES INCREASING TO 1.5-2.5 INCHES FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY,  
ALONG WITH SURFACE DEWPOINTS RISING BACK UP TO AROUND 70 DEGREES.  
GIVEN PLENTY OF INSTABILITY AND HIGH MOISTURE AMOUNTS, CHANCES FOR  
THUNDERSTORMS WITH LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN WILL BE LIKELY.  
TEMPERATURES FOR THE EARLY TO MIDDLE PART OF NEXT WEEK ALSO APPEAR  
TO BE FALLING TO AROUND 90, WHICH IS BELOW NORMAL FOR THIS TIME  
OF YEAR.  
 
BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK, GLOBAL MODELS SHOW A REINFORCING  
SHORTWAVE TROUGH DIVING SOUTHWARD IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT. THIS  
COULD BRING ADDITIONAL CHANCES FOR HEAVY RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS TO  
THE REGION, POSSIBLY STALLING FOR A FEW DAYS. CURRENTLY, WPC QPF  
VALUES ARE UNDER AN INCH FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY OF NEXT WEEK, BUT  
THIS WILL BE MONITORED OVER THE WEEKEND.  
 

 
   
AVIATION
 
 
(18Z TAFS)  
ISSUED AT 102 PM CDT THU JUL 29 2021  
 
VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL THROUGH THE NEXT 24 HOURS, WITH  
GENERALLY LIGHT WINDS. A FEW ISOLATED SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS ARE  
POSSIBLE, BUT GIVEN THE VERY LOW EXPECTED COVERAGE, THE CHANCE OF  
ANY TERMINAL BEING AFFECTED IS MINIMAL.
