TK’s Weather Discussion (Fri/18May2012)

Updated 130pm CDT Friday / 18 May 2012

…. A Stable Air Mass Expected over the Coming Days ….
…. No Mention of Rain Through My Seven Day Forecast ….
…. Slightly Above Average Afternoon Temperatures with the Sunshine ….

On this Friday… surface high pressure is located over the eastern third of the USA with a trough.. or line.. of surface low pressure extends south southwestward from western Kansas and eastern Colorado across the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles and continuing southwestward across west Texas and eastern New Mexico. As a result, a southerly surface wind is blowing across our area.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere, an area of upper air high pressure continues across the area. As a result of the upper air wind flow, the upper level winds are light north northwesterly over our area.

As we make our way into the weekend, a dry and stable weather pattern continues across the area. Skies will continue to be clear to partly cloudy. As low level moisture continues to increase with the southerly surface over the coming days, we’ll see the return to late night and early morning low cloudiness.. but this is about the only change we’ll see in the coming days.

There is no mention of rain anywhere in my seven day forecast.

For Austin and south central Texas… tonight will be mostly clear. Lows in the 60s. Southerly wind. For tomorrow, morning low clouds becoming partly cloudy. Highs in the 80s to near 90 with a southerly wind.

Have a good Friday night and Saturday…
