TK’s Weather Update for Friday / 04 August 2017 ….

Updated 915am CT – Friday / 04 August 2017

.. Some Sunshine with Temperatures a Little Below Seasonal Averages ..
.. Rain Chances Continue On and Off Through the Weekend ..

On the Weather Map…
Surface map… high pressure is located over the southeastern USA and over southern Colorado and the four corners region. A southward moving cold front extends southwestward from southern Missouri into central Oklahoma and across the southern Texas panhandle then northwestward through northeast New Mexico and central Colorado as a stationary front. 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 northern California and Nevada. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are west northwesterly 25 to 35 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 through the weekend and continuing into next week. Current NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance suggests around one to two inches of rain for the period with rain chances highest for Sunday night through Monday night. Temperatures will be closer to seasonal levels with the additional clouds and precipitation chances.

Have a good Friday….
