TK’s Weather Discussion (Thu/24May2012)

Updated 130pm CDT Thursday / 24 May 2012

…. A Stable Air Mass.. with Sunshine.. Expected over the Coming Days ….
…. Slightly Above Average Afternoon Temperatures….

On this Thursday… a weak cold front extends southward from a surface low over south central Kansas into western Oklahoma and into west Texas and then westward into New Mexico. As a result, a southerly surface wind is blowing across our area.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere, a ridge of upper air high pressure over northern Mexico and south Texas. Another trough extends southward from just across the USA/Canada border north of Montana into the intermountain region. As a result of the upper air wind flow, the upper level winds are light west northwesterly over our area.

There continues to be little change in our weather pattern across south central Texas. The ridge of upper air high pressure to our west and southwest.. acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere.. is rebuilding over the area and will continue to do so through the end of the week before it shifts more eastward over the Mississippi Valley for the weekend.

In short, skies will continue to be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with late night and early morning low cloudiness. The pressure gradient.. with the low pressure area to our northwest.. will result in a breezy southerly wind across our area.

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

For Austin and south central Texas… tonight will be partly cloudy. Lows in the 70s. Southerly wind. For tomorrow, morning low clouds becoming partly cloudy. Highs around 90 with a southerly wind.

Have a good Thursday night and Friday…
