AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SAN ANGELO TX
1231 PM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014

.AVIATION...
/18Z TAFS/

Patchy fog has dissipated across West Central Texas, leaving VFR
conditions and light south winds at about 10 knots across the
terminals. This general trend should continue well into the
overnight hours. However, we do expect another round of fog around
sunrise Saturday morning. Little hard to tell just how widespread
or thick it will be this far in advance, sure later forecasts will
refine it. &&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 640 AM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014/

AVIATION...
/12Z TAFS/

Patchy fog will produce MVFR visibilities at KSJT, KJCT and KSOA
through 14Z, otherwise VFR conditions expected across the terminals
today. Clear skies and light winds will prevail tonight. There may
be some patchy fog again early Saturday morning but will leave out
of the forecast at this time due to coverage uncertainty.

PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 424 AM CDT FRI OCT 24 2014/

SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

Dry and unseasonably warm conditions will prevail across the West
Central Texas today as an upper level ridge builds east from the
Desert Southwest. There will be some patchy fog across southern and
western sections early this morning but this will burn off by mid
morning, with mostly sunny skies expected for the rest of the day.
We`ll see above normal temperatures this afternoon with highs
topping out in the mid and upper 80s across most of the area.

Expect clear skies and light winds tonight, with overnight lows
ranging from the mid and upper 50s south, to the lower 60s north.
Some patchy fog may develop again towards daybreak, primarily
across southern and southwest counties, where stronger radiational
cooling will lead to boundary layer saturation.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday through next Friday)

A warm and dry forecast for this weekend into early next week, then
cooler temperatures for the middle of next week. The combination of
an upper level ridge and low level south to southwest flow will
bring above normal temperatures Saturday through Monday. Highs will
be in the mid 80s to around 90. A cool front will move through West
Central Texas Monday night and Tuesday, bringing cooler air into the
area. Temperatures will be around seasonable values for Tuesday
through Friday, with highs in the 70s to lower 80s and lows in the
50s. Will keep the slight chance POPS going Tuesday night and
Wednesday southeast of a Ozona to San Angelo to Coleman line.
Otherwise, going with a dry forecast.
