.AVIATION...
VFR conditions look to prevail through the period with NNW winds
veering slightly to NNE winds by Friday afternoon. Current visible
satellite imagery shows a overcast MVFR ceiling just northeast of the
AUS terminal but quickly eroding from west to east as drier dewpoints
filter in. Expect this trend to continue with clear skies prevailing
overnight. Winds have been strong and gusty today but as we move into
the late evening hours, look for those winds to begin to relax. No
hazards expected through the period.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 150 PM CDT Thu Oct 29 2020/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Friday Night)...Gusty northwest winds
will continue through early evening across all of south central
Texas. Around sunset, we will see a decrease in wind speeds as
daytime mixing ceases and the boundary layer inversion starts to
become established. Northerly winds of 5 to 10 mph will remain intact
overnight and this may partially limit maximum radiational cooling.
Still, we should see lows dip into the mid 30s across the Hill
Country with upper 30s to near 40 elsewhere.

On Friday, we can expect plenty of sunshine along with daytime highs
in the mid 60s to near 70. A quiet weather pattern continues into
Friday night as overnight lows drop into the mid 30s to mid 40s.

LONG TERM (Saturday through Thursday)...Quiet and comfortable autumn
conditions will prevail through the weekend and into next week as
mid-level ridging gradually amplifies into early next week. The main
noteworthy item for the long term period will consist of a weak cold
front arriving on Sunday. This front should allow for a slight dip in
temperatures and slightly drier air to arrive across south-central
Texas under a modest northeasterly flow. As mid-level shortwave
troughing progresses eastward across the Southwest CONUS, southerly
flow returns to the area during the middle of next week. This
southerly flow should yield in a warming trend and a gradual uptick
in the moisture content toward the very end of the forecast period.
