Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Brownsville TX
646 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .DISCUSSION...Updated for latest aviation discussion below. && .AVIATION...MVFR ceilings continue this evening at BRO and HRL and IFR ceilings persist at MFE. These conditions will prevail through the evening with some brief instances of IFR ceilings possible overnight at HRL and BRO. Have included tempo groups to reflect this potential. Ceilings should then gradually rise through the morning hours with each aerodrome eventually seeing VFR conditions by around midday Saturday. Northwest winds will generally be light to moderate overnight, with a directional shift from northwest to south and southeast occurring later Saturday morning. && .PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 243 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020/ SHORT TERM (Now through Saturday night): A cold front has pushed through the area leaving cooler and dropping temperatures in its wake. We have seen much drier air both ahead and behind the front than the previous models had suggested. Models are now beginning to pick up on this trend with the HRRR being the model of choice at this time due to it handling the drier air better. Therefore, we lowered PoPs across the area with a continued chance rainfall, mainly across coastal areas and the northern Ranchlands into this evening. Temperatures will remain cool overnight falling into the low 60s with some spotty upper 50s throughout the CWA. Tonight into Saturday, high pressure begins to builds east of the area which will quickly switch our current northerly winds back to the southeast on Saturday and allow for warming temperatures, though we will continue to remain slightly below normal. LONG TERM (Sunday through Friday): The long-term period will begin with broad, mid-level subtropical ridging over the majority of Southern Texas, with southeasterly flow at the surface. This combo will warm up temperatures into the low-mid 90s, about 5 to 10 degrees above seasonal average, across most of the CWA on Sunday afternoon. Most of the country north of Texas will be influenced by a extensive longwave trough. Shortwaves embedded in this trough will round the base of it from the west, helping it dig farther south and over central/southern Texas on Monday. Although there wont be a drastic change in temperatures for Deep South Texas, slightly cooler temperatures will result from a more troughy pattern through the middle part of next week. Additionally, Gulf moisture will gradually increase over the region beginning on Monday as an area of weak low pressure develops near the Yucatan Peninsula Monday afternoon into Tuesday. Model guidance has been persistent over the past few runs, showing weak troughing aloft and an influx of Gulf moisture. Will continue to keep slight/isolated PoPs in the forecast beginning on Monday and continue through the rest of the week. The best precip. chances will occur east of I-69C each day. Ridging will begin to build in from the west by Thursday, warming temps up and perhaps suppressing rain chances a bit for the remainder of the week. MARINE (Now through Saturday Night): We currently have a Small Craft Advisory out for the northern Gulf waters until early evening. Conditions will begin to improve this evening and overnight with winds beginning to decrease and lowering seas. We could continue to see some showers across the Gulf waters into early Saturday that could lead to brief gusty winds and higher seas. Otherwise, more favorable conditions are expected, especially Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Sunday through Wednesday: Not too many changes made to the marine forecast from the previous forecast package. High pressure centered over the Mid-Atlantic region and a developing surface low across the western Carribean will keep winds moderate to occasionally strong out of the southeast or east-southeast through much of the long- term period. Periods of Small Craft Exercise Caution conditions will be possible almost each day as winds remain sustained between 10 to 20 knots. A long easterly fetch will keep the swell moderate, around 3 to 5 feet on the Gulf, into the middle part of next week. Additionally, rain showers and thunderstorms will become possible next week as well. && .PRELIMINARY POINT TEMPS/POPS...

National Weather Service Pittsburgh PA
1113 PM EDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .SYNOPSIS... Cool and dry weather will return for the weekend. The next chance of rain arrives Sunday night through Tuesday. Below normal temperatures don`t last long as values climb back above normal Tuesday. 70s are possible for locations outside the mountains Wednesday and Thursday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SATURDAY MORNING/... Latest GOES 12.30u-10.90u satellite image has a batch of altocu lingering over parts of northern West Virginia and western Maryland. The latest HRRR and NAM3Km in the H8-H7 pick up on this nicely and have it lingering until 6-9Z. This could have an impact on low temperature forecast if the clouds last a good part of the night. For now, left temperatures as is, but the frost process may not occur if the clouds don`t vacate. && .SHORT TERM /6 AM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH MONDAY/... Upper-level zonal flow is progged to quickly resume in the wake of the filling trough so temperature moderation will be rapid on for Saturday and Sunday with warm advection and insolation marred only by some clouds with a passing shortwave. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/... Rain chances return Sunday night into Monday morning with the approach of a shortwave trough and weak frontal boundary. Lack of moisture and departing support for the system will keep rain chances low overall. Model consensus projects a more substantial shortwave trough moving up the Ohio Valley late on Monday. With favorable divergence via the right-entrance of a jet streak and resulting frontogenetical forcing within southwest flow, most areas should receive rain by late Monday. Cold advection in the wake of that system will be brief though and a return to dry weather and seasonably warm temperature is anticipated under zonal flow. && .AVIATION /03Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... VFR is expected through the TAF period under sfc high pressure. NW wind should back to the SW Sat as the high tracks E. .Outlook... The next chance for restrictions is expected with another cold front early next week. && .PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... MD...Freeze Warning until 9 AM EDT Saturday for MDZ001.

National Weather Service Pueblo CO
301 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday) Issued at 258 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Currently, a stream of high clouds extends from Teller County southeast through Baca County as can be seen on visible satellite imagery. Areas south and west of this band of high clouds are under clear skies. Strong southwesterly winds are being reported at Springfield, but winds are fairly light elsewhere across the plains as of 2 pm. Gusty winds and low relative humidities are being reported at some locations within Teller County and the Upper Arkansas River Valley, where a Red Flag Warning is in effect. Temperatures underneath the stream of clouds are a bit cooler than anticipated for this afternoon, with temperatures ranging from the upper 40s in El Paso County to mid 50s in Pueblo County as of 2 pm. Areas under thin or no cloud cover have reached the lower to mid 60s across the lower elevations. Tonight and tomorrow... Main forecast concern through tomorrow will be very dry conditions with gusty winds, causing near critical to critical fire weather conditions across the area tomorrow afternoon and evening. A disturbance within the flow aloft is expected to move south through the Rocky Mountain region, increasing the west to northwest flow aloft. As a result, an increase in temperatures, gusty westerly winds and a reinforcement of dry air is expected to create near critical to critical fire weather conditions across the region tomorrow afternoon. Winds are expected to be strongest along and west of the I-25 corridor, where gust are anticipated to reach 25 to 40 mph. So have upgraded the Fire Weather Watch to a Red Flag Warning. Some of the latest guidance indicates that wind gusts in El Paso County will not reach critical thresholds, but the 18z HRRR shows winds gusting to 25 to 30 mph through a good portion of the county, which makes a bit more sense to me given the increased flow aloft moving overhead during the day tomorrow. In addition to the gustier winds, RH values are expected to drop to 10% or lower across many of the areas within the Red Flag Warning. A cold front is then anticipated to begin moving through the plains late tomorrow afternoon into early tomorrow evening. As far as temperatures go, lows tonight are expected to drop into the mid 30s to lower 40s across the plains and mid 20s to mid 30s in the high valleys. Highs tomorrow are anticipated to be around 80 across the plains and around 70 in the high valleys. .LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday) Issued at 258 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Post frontal winds will continue increasing into Saturday evening, with gusts up to 30-35 mph expected across the far eastern plains. Expect cooler temps in 20s and 30s over the plains in this post frontal air mas Saturday night and as low level easterly flow continues on Sunday, will see below normal temps return to the plains. No real big change in temps is expected across the mountain valleys Sunday. For the remainder of the period, expect a warming trend later next week with slightly above normal temps returning to the area. Dry conditions expected and while some guidance hints at some focused ascent across the far eastern plains Tuesday night into Wednesday, expect the stronger ascent and any precip chances to stay to the east. Next front forecast to drop south through CO late Thursday, but precip chances not expected. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 258 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 hours at all three TAF sites (KALS, KCOS, KPUB). Generally light and diurnally driven winds are expected through late morning before gusty west to northwest winds develop in the afternoon. && .PUB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

National Weather Service Reno NV
317 PM PDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .SYNOPSIS... Warm afternoons and chilly mornings will prevail through the weekend. Sunday and Monday afternoons may be slightly more breezy, but otherwise dry conditions with temperatures remaining above season averages will continue for much of next week. && .DISCUSSION... Easterly flow will continue to weaken through the day today across western Nevada and much of the eastern Sierra. Ridge and mid slopes may still have some more breezy east winds, but highest gusts should remain below 30 mph today. Afternoon temperatures will be in the lower 70s for the region today. The absence of the east flow will allow smoke and haze to return to portions of the forecast area, especially for the eastern Sierra. Smoke will be filtering back into the eastern Sierra, including Mammoth and all the way into the Tahoe Basin over the weekend. Other than the smoke concerns, mainly light winds and mild temperatures will continue through the weekend. High temperatures will be above season averages by Saturday with highs near 80 across western Nevada and in the mid 70s for the Sierra. A bit warm for fall sweater weather if you ask me! These light winds and a dry airmass will allow valleys to efficiently cool with lows dropping into the low to mid 30s for most lower valleys. Sierra valleys will see lows dropping into the 20s. High pressure takes hold across the eastern Pacific which will keep much of the region under dry northwest flow. West-northwest winds will increase on Sunday and Monday with gusts around 20-25 mph. Precipitation chances remain non-impressive through next week with relatively quiet weather forecast. -Edan && .AVIATION... Turbulence and mountain wave activity remain possible on the west side of the Sierra crest through this evening. East winds subside this evening. West to northwest breezes will return Saturday through Monday, with afternoon gusts reaching as high as 20-25 kts, especially south of US 50 Saturday and north of US 50 Sunday and Monday. Smoke and haze from the Creek Fire has begun to make its way back into the Eastern Sierra and portions of western Nevada this afternoon. The most recent HRRR Smoke simulations show smoke and haze moving north and east near KMMH-KTVL-KMEV-KCXP through tonight, with the densest smoke and visibility reductions occurring near KMMH. KRNO and KTRK should remain clear through this evening. -Johnston && .REV Watches/Warnings/Advisories... NV...None. CA...None. && $$ For more information from the National Weather Service visit...

National Weather Service Riverton WY
458 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .UPDATE... Issued at 454 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Strong winds at mountain top level and a tight gradient looks to result in near/high wind across the Absaroka and Cody Foothills. The 18Z high resolution models have increased the winds for enough confidence to issue a high wind warning for those two areas tonight. The high wind will end by around 3 AM, as a cold front pulls southward. NPW and updated grids have been sent. && .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday night) Issued at 145 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Overview...Warmer today with windy conditions across the Wind Corridor and Absarokas. Strong cold front to cross the area late tonight into Saturday bringing snow to the northern mountains. Below average temperatures post-front Sunday. Synopsis...Warmer and more seasonal weather across the area today as warmer air is being advected into the area. Mid-level wind being favorable for the advection of warmer air; however, these strong mid- level winds are going to mix down and impact the surface. An SPS has been issued for several zones where winds area expected to be gusty. Wind gusts upwards of 40 to 50 mph across the Wind Corridor to Casper; as well as, the Upper Winds including Dubois. Gusts expected across the Absarokas and Chief Joseph Highway could exceed 60mph. Winds are expected to continue through the evening and overnight hours; therefore, the SPS may need to be extended to reflect the winds. A strong cold front will slowly begin to drift into the area late tonight and into early Saturday morning. Models have disagreed on the timing of the front for the last several days but the NAM and the HRRR have the front on Big Horn and Johnson County`s doorstep by early morning on Saturday. Northwest flow ahead of the front could allow for some upslope snow showers across the Absarokas and Bighorns but when the front moves across snow showers are expected to continue across the northern mountains. Model guidance wants to put substantial QPF across the Tetons and Upper Winds but due to this being a more dynamic system dropped QPF values across those locations and increased QPF across the Bighorns. Have issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Bighorns from midnight tonight through early Sunday morning. Moisture is looking to be lacking once the front crosses out of Bighorn and Johnson Counties; therefore, went light on pops across central Wyoming and no pops across the south. Winds ahead of the front could be strong across the Wind Corridor but staying dry. Northwest flow continues to dominate the pattern into the end of the period; however, CAA post cold front could be blustery across the northeast part of the CWA bringing down highs and lows to below average temperatures through early Sunday. .LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday) Issued at 145 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 The general troughiness will continue through next week. This will keep general chances for precipitation across the north and northwest through much of the week. The troughiness will keep gusty winds through the extended forecast period, but no highlight worthy winds are looking to be possible. The first main shot of precipitation will be Sunday night/Monday morning with a cold front pushing across the northeastern part of the state. Up to 6 inches of snow could be possible Sunday morning through late Monday afternoon across the Absarokas. The Bighorns may see an inch or two as well. These amounts would be in addition to the snowfall over the weekend in these areas. Temperatures will remain below average for Sunday and Monday and increasing through the middle of the week to near average to slightly above average. Tuesday and Wednesday will remain mainly dry except for the far northern Bighorns and Absarokas. The next system in the form of a cold front similar to the Sunday one, will occur Thursday. The models still differ, but both the GFS and ECMWF agree that some sort of front will make its way across the northeast part of the region later in the day on Thursday. This will drop temperatures back below normal for Thursday. Thursday will be 15 to perhaps 20 degrees colder than Wednesday. Precipitation, likely snow overnight and rain during the warmer part of the day, is expected to occur over the Bighorns and northern Absarokas. The ECMWF is indicating a stronger front which would push precip further south into the Owl Creeks and Tetons. Kept PoPs lower for these regions, due to the continued model uncertainty, but will be something to continue to watch over the coming week. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday afternoon) Issued at 243 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Winds will increase across many of the terminal sites this afternoon. KCPR and KRKS are already gusting to near 30 kts with these winds expected to continue through the late evening. Clouds will also continue to increase from north to south today and tonight. Winds will decrease overnight but will increase again tomorrow ahead of a cold front. Precipitation ahead of the front will begin to move into KCOD Sunday morning around 11Z and VCSH has been included for KCPR, KJAC, KPNA, and KWRL ahead of the cold front. The cold front will push through from south to north and shift winds to the north tomorrow morning and early afternoon. The front is not expected to make it to KRKS and thus strong west winds are expected to continue through the day tomorrow at KRKS. Winds will be gusty ahead of the front at the other terminal locations. && .FIRE WEATHER... Issued AT 145 PM MDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Gusty winds will continue across the area as the gradient tightens ahead of strong cold front. An SPS has been issued for the Wind Corridor, Upper and Central Wind River Basin, Absaroka Mountains and Cody Foothills through this evening for winds. Minimum relative humidity will be above critical fire weather thresholds but it is still very dry across the area. A strong cold front will enter the area tonight and traverse the state through Saturday. Winds and relative humidity values will increase ahead of the front. An SPS may be extended in the Wind Corridor tomorrow afternoon for the gusty winds. && .RIW WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... High Wind Warning until 3 AM MDT Saturday for WYZ002-003.

National Weather Service Blacksburg VA
956 PM EDT Fri Oct 16 2020 .SYNOPSIS... Colder high pressure builds in tonight through the weekend. Another front enters the area early next week, but with limited moisture. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 955 PM EDT Friday... No changes to Freeze Warning and Frost Advisory... Scattered showers have developed in the piedmont this evening. HRRR and HREF short range guidance have this precipitation moving slowly east and dissipating between 04Z/midnight and 06Z/2AM. Have updated to reflect current radar trends. Overall, dry air behind a cold front is pushing into the area from the west. This will quickly eliminate the current widespread cloud cover from west to east. The surface high pressure moving into the region will settle the winds down. With more settled winds, mixing will decrease and help those temperatures drop, especially in southeast WV and west-central VA, where winds are expected to stay breezy the longest. Temperatures in a line of counties from Greenbrier, WV down to Tazewell, VA will get into the lower 30s, and some of our usually colder spots could get into the 20s. West of the Blue Ridge, temps will get down to the mid or low 30s, to the east lows will be in the low 40s/upper 30s. Frost will likely form west of the Blue Ridge for early Saturday morning. && .SHORT TERM /SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY/... As of 130 PM EDT Friday... Another shot of chilly Autumn air as surface high pressure builds in for the weekend. We kick Saturday morning off with a frost/freeze headlines over the western mountain and river valleys. Many of these locations will wake up with temperatures in the upper 20s and low 30s while elsewhere around the region mid to upper 30s will be the general norm. Sweater weather will continue through the day with highs in the mid to upper 50s out west and low 60s east of the Blue Ridge. Another round of patchy frost can be expected for Sunday morning west of the Blue Ridge. These locations once again will see temperatures flirt with the freezing mark while locations out east of I-81 sit in the mid 30s to around 40 degrees. The high pressure system that was overhead Saturday will continue north and east toward the Delmarva allowing for some decent southerly return flow. This should get highs back into the low to mid 60s out west and mid to upper 60s out east of the Blue Ridge by Sunday afternoon. With return flow comes extra moisture as high pressure continues north and east. On top that another trough and area of low pressure will start to dig in from the north with a front approaching our western slopes Monday afternoon. Latest central model guidance continues to depict this front moving back and forth between our western slopes and the Ohio River Valley. This would keep precipitation chances sparse with mainly isolated shower activity Monday afternoon and evening over our western zones. Forecast confidence is high through the weekend. Moderate confidence for early next week based on overall frontal placement and forcing aloft. && .LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY/... As of 130 PM EDT Friday... Much of the long term period will feature relatively mild and dry conditions. Zonal flow will be predominant as high pressure sits out over the open Atlantic. At the same time our broad upper level trough will continue northward through the upper Great Lakes and Midwest as we head into midweek. Model guidance continues to depict a few weak frontal passage with the best chances of rain later in the workweek period. The 12z GFS and 0z European solutions continue depict a front holding just to our north and west Tuesday. This would leave isolated chances for showers along the western slopes in particularly late Tuesday morning into early Tuesday afternoon. The front regresses back to the north by Wednesday with high pressure settling in over the Great Smoky Mountains. The high remains for Thursday with spotty chances for shower activity as moisture builds due to more southwesterly flow. High pressure kicks east late Thursday into Friday opening the door for another cold front to move in. This front should bring us a better chance of rain and another cold shot heading into the weekend. High temperatures through the period look to trend at or slightly above average which is in line with both the 6-10 day and 8-14 day outlooks from the Climate Prediction Center. && .AVIATION /02Z SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY/... As of 725 PM EDT Friday... A narrow band of light showers east of KFVX and KDAN also associated with some MVFR ceilings. This precipitation will move east this evening. Otherwise conditions will be VFR across southwest Virginia, northwest North Carolina and southeast West Virginia tonight and Saturday. Areas of frost are expected late tonight and Saturday morning along and west of the Blue Ridge. A surface high will cross the Tennessee Valley tonight and will be over the Delmarva by late in the day Saturday. This will bring winds around to the southeast Saturday afternoon. Above average confidence in ceilings, wind and visibility. .Extended Aviation Discussion... High pressure, and VFR ceilings/visibilities will remain through Sunday. On Monday and Tuesday a cold front across the Ohio Valley will bring MVFR cigs to the mountains. A dry forecast and VFR weather is expected on Wednesday. && .RNK WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...

...Update to aviation forecast discussion...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday) Issued at 353 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020 As of 20Z this afternoon, the surface ridge axis has pushed southeast of the area into the Ozarks region with lee troughing starting to develop in eastern CO in response to a shortwave within northwest flow, noted on water vapor imagery. The large-scale 500mb trough continues to progress into the eastern half of the CONUS. Winds have been light so far today, but this is expected to drastically change tonight into Saturday. As the pressure gradient tightens this evening, a strong 60-70 kt LLJ develops and maintains its strength overnight before gradually decreasing into tomorrow afternoon. Forecast soundings don`t show much decoupling of the PBL, so conditions will at least be breezy overnight, but the stronger winds come mid-morning as they start to mix down. For this reason, a Wind Advisory has been issued for east central and parts of northeast KS from 9am to 3pm tomorrow, generally along and southeast of a Council Grove to Hiawatha line. This is where models show a strong signal for southwest winds sustained at 20-30mph with gusts up to 50mph. It is worth noting that the 12Z/18Z HRRR and 15Z/18Z RAP have shown potential for gusts pushing 60mph, so it is not out of the question that an upgrade to a high wind warning may be needed, or potentially an areal expansion westward if this signal remains consistent. In any case, these winds also bring an increase in fire danger - see fire weather section for more details. The aforementioned shortwave pushes a cold front south from Nebraska, which should decrease winds along the boundary during the late afternoon into early evening. Even so, the stronger winds during most of the day will usher in warmer air bringing highs to the low to mid 70s ahead of the front. .LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday) Issued at 353 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Winds are expected to increase again behind the front Saturday night, shifting to the north, but will be much less windy compared to the pre-frontal winds. Only small rain chances exist on Sunday in the morning as moisture looks meager with the northerly flow. Temperatures will be much cooler on Sunday and Monday, with CAA being dominant on Sunday and the boundary looking to stall just south of the area on Monday. This will result in highs in the upper 40s to mid 50s with lows in the 30s. By Tuesday the boundary moves north as a warm front and hangs around the area before pushing back south as a cold front Thursday night into Friday. As a result, temperatures gradually increase mid-week with highs returning to the 70s by Thursday before dropping back to the upper 50s on Friday. Unfortunately, rain chances remain low with only slight chance PoPs during this period for now - although this will likely change with increasing confidence as we get closer and we get a better sense of where the frontal boundary will set up through the week. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 633 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020 VFR conditions continue with a wind driven forecast giving way to LLWS as the concerning hazard. A light southerly breeze will change over to a strong southwesterly wind into the 06Z forecast period as wind fields intensify. A strong LLJ will continue to intensify overnight. Some models suggest winds could be as strong as 60kts within the first couple thousand feet off the deck. This should continue into mid morning before the LLJ veers and partially mixes to the surface. Gusty surface winds continue through the 00Z period as slight relaxing may occur but no significant weakening will likely occur until after sunset. && .FIRE WEATHER... Issued at 353 PM CDT Fri Oct 16 2020 Strong southwest winds of 20-30mph and gusts of 35-50mph will bring high to very high fire danger across the CWA, with the highest risk coinciding with the area of the wind advisory. RH values will fall to the 25-30 percent range during the afternoon, although fortunately these minimums are forecast to occur as winds decrease in the afternoon. During the peak of the strongest wind gusts, RH is forecast at 35-40 percent. Have not issued any fire headlines at this point, but in any case, these conditions coupled with dry fuels would result in fires growing quickly should these fuels become ignited. && .TOP WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
