TK’s Weather Discussion and Forecast….

.. A Stable Summer Weather Pattern Continues ..

On the Weather Map…
On the surface weather map this Thursday… a weak cold front from a surface low pressure area over southeastern Missouri southwestward into southeastern Oklahoma and westward along the Red River to near Wichita Falls. Surface high pressure is east of the area with a trough.. or line.. of low pressure extending southward from western Nebraska to along the Colorado/Kansas border then across the western Texas panhandle and then south southwestward into southwest Texas. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are southerly.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere, a broad upper air low pressure trough, or line of low pressure, extends from Hudson Bay southward through the Great Lakes and into the western lower Mississippi Valley. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are light west southwesterly.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…
Overall, there will be little change in the overall stable weather pattern for south central Texas and the Austin metro area over the next seven days.

We’ll continue to see our morning low clouds giving way to abundant sunshine each day with highs in the upper 90s to around 100 through late week and the early part of the weekend. Marginal instability will combine with intense afternoon heating to create a few towering afternoon clouds but, at this point, I think that rain chances are too slim to be a major concern locally.

The air mass may grow a little more unstable by Saturday into Sunday but I am reluctant to mention anything more than a few more clouds given most model guidance doesn’t show anything more than temperatures coming down a degree or two.

Have a good Thursday….
