.AVIATION...
VFR conditions should prevail for most of the period outside of a
small window for MVFR ceilings for the I35 sites. The atmosphere is
expected to be slightly drier tomorrow and will just mention SCT015
for now. Otherwise, south/southwest flow will continue at the surface
with speeds generally less than 12 knots.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 235 AM CDT Tue Jul 17 2018/

SHORT TERM (Today through Wednesday)...
Hot and dry conditions continue through the short term. High
temperatures will warm a degree or two today from yesterday and warm
further Wednesday. In addition, hazy conditions continue today as
Saharan Dust remains over the region.

LONG TERM (Wednesday Night through Monday)...
Dry and hot conditions will also continue Thursday through early next
week. A 595-598 decameter high is forecast to expand through New
Mexico and into West Texas. With South Central under the influence of
the southern periphery of the ridge and increasing thickness values,
high temperatures will warm further and triple digit temperatures
expected across most if not all of South Central Texas. Highs will
range from 100 degrees across the Hill Country, 101-104 degrees
along and east the I-35 corridor and 104-107 along the Rio Grande.
Mixing in the afternoons should prevent heat index values from
getting too out of control. Nevertheless it will be hot with some
locations flirting with heat advisory criteria potentially on air
temperature alone.
