TK’s Weather Update for Wednesday / 02 August 2017 ….

Updated 915am CT – Wednesday / 02 August 2017

.. Rain Chances On and Off Through the Weekend ..
.. Temperatures Closer to Average ..

On the Weather Map…
Surface map… high pressure is located over the southeastern USA and over southern Colorado and the four corners region. A weak trough, or line, of low pressure extends east northeastward from the Rio Grande River south of Del Rio into central Louisiana. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are light and variable.

Upper air map… a trough, or line, of upper level low pressure trough (line of low pressure) is over the eastern 2/3rd of the USA with an upper air high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, has continued to settle westward and is now centered over Nevada. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are west northwesterly about 20 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

A series of upper level low pressure disturbances, coming in on counterclockwise upper air flow on the west side of that upper air trough over the eastern 2/3rds of the country, will result in increased cloud cover and an increased precipitation chances over the rest of the week and through the weekend and early next week. Current NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance suggests one to two inches of rain for the period. Temperatures be closer to seasonal levels.. even a little below.. with the additional clouds and precipitation chances.

Have a good Wednesday….
