… A Mostly Dry Seven Day Forecast Ahead …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… a weakening stationary front extends from a surface low over southern Illinois into southern Missouri and extreme northern Arkansas hen west northwestward into extreme northeastern Oklahoma and into Kansas. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are light southerly.

On the upper air map… a trough, or line, of upper air low pressure extends southward from western Canada into the southwestern USA with a strong upper level low pressure disturbance over southern Nevada. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are westerly less than 20 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

After a few rain showers and thunderstorms in areas east of the IH35 corridor yesterday, a drier weather pattern is developing for today with rain chances decreasing with only isolated rain showers and thunderstorms expected.

Overall, a dry and stable summer like weather pattern will prevail through the remainder of the week and pretty much through the upcoming long Memorial Day weekend.

I continue to watch a weak area of low pressure that is expected to move north northwestward from the western Caribbean Sea into the central and eastern Gulf of Mexico by mid into late week. Atmospheric models are in disagreement in where the system moves beyond that with some suggesting the eastern Gulf and the Florida coast while others, suggesting movement a little more to the west. According to the NWS/National Hurricane Center, there are some indications that the system could become better organized by mid week and beyond. In any case, the system stays well east of our local area, so I will keep the seven day forecast beyond today and tonight dry.

Based upon the latest NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance, forecast rainfall amounts, over the next seven days, for south central Texas will likely be trace amounts or less.

Have a good Tuesday..
