Another mostly sunny day with highs in the low to mid 80s across SE TX. Perhaps a few showers and an isolated thunderstorm will be possible Wednesday night night early Thursday morning with the next cool front that will bring more beautiful weather for the end of the week.

.AVIATION [18Z TAF ISSUANCE]...
VFR with light and variable winds. Slight chance of patchy fog
early Wednesday morning.

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 1045 AM CDT Tue Apr 24 2018/

UPDATE...
Another beautiful day in paradise. Surface high pressure centered
over eastern Texas has kept skies clear and winds either calm or
variable. No near to short term changes other than the western
entrance of scattered cirrus and today`s northerly breezes becoming
weak onshore by early tomorrow afternoon. Maximum temperatures
will achieve late April standard lower to middle 80s with overnights
cooling into the upper 50s to lower 60s. Due to the southeastward
advancement of an upper low/trough moving across Kansas and Oklahoma
tomorrow afternoon...rain probabilities will begin to increase to
moderate chances across our far northern tier counties during late
Wednesday afternoon. The surface reflection will be of a passing
cold front that will reach our northern counties tomorrow evening
and then pass off the coast shortly after midnight Thursday. Scattered
showers with a few isolated thunderstorms can be expected across
the northern half of the forecast area...or just ahead of along
this frontal boundary as it advances towards the coast during the
overnight hours. Not much fanfare is expected with this latest
shortwave trough/cold frontal passage as the regional atmospheric
column will not have much time to saturate and there are little to
no upper level forcing dynamics as it relates to jet stream positioning.
A reinforcing shot of drier and slightly cooler air on Friday behind
a secondary shortwave trough passage will only be noticeable in
the northerly wind field as wind speeds pick up a bit during the day.

A few scattered showers will be possible tonight associated with a cool front which will bring SE TX more nice beautiful weather through the weekend with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid 50s (60s along the immediate coast). The perfect Spring weather continues.

This weather is wonderful. Swim practice started last week for the kids, and it's pretty chilly for them, but it's great for the rest of us. Not too hot on rain chances later today/tonight but it would be welcome since it looks like our last shot until late next week/following weekend. Things are OK now but if we don't get any rain tonight, come next week, things will start to really dry out. Let's just hope the big system next week actually delivers instead of flopping.

We've been blessed with such a mild spring but as things heat up, the evaporation rates really crank and the plants need their water. I noticed my garage almost felt hot yesterday for maybe the 2nd or 3rd time this spring. It's coming....

Yes, we just do summer league (for now). They swim for the Imperial Oaks Seals. My youngest is also in baseball, both spring and fall ball, and that's about all we can handle right now. I remember the first meet last year was chilly (50's in the AM) but every meet after that was hot. They have been really chilly at practice this year, purple lips and everything, and it takes a lot out of them. They are ready for the water to warm up.

Ahh, we swam for Eagle Springs Flyers. We ( well, they) swim against the Imperial Oaks folks at Trinity Invitational. We are permanently with the Eagle Swimming Association and now in Long Course season. Yeah, it has been cool. Remember, in August and September it will be in the mid to upper 90's with mid 70's for dewpoints. :)

Got some thunder bumpers headed to SA, this afternoon. Looks like the one around Hondo is bowing some, too. They'll have a fun commute.
