… A Dry and Summer Like Seven Day Forecast Ahead …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… a low pressure area over southeastern Colorado with a trough, or line, of surface low pressure extending southwestward through far west Texas and eastern New Mexico. Subtropical depression Alberto is moving northward from central and northern Alabama. 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 Wyoming southward into New Mexico and Arizona. Another upper level low pressure area.. associated with subtropical storm Alberto.. is over central and northern Alabama. Upper level high pressure is over northern Mexico into the Rio Grande country of southwest Texas. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are northwesterly about 55 to 60 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

The dry weather pattern continues with this stable summer like weather pattern to prevail through the remainder of the week and into the upcoming weekend.

Although we’ve been a little slower getting to the 100 degree mark than I thought we would be, guidance is still suggesting that afternoon highs will rise to near 100 by the weekend as upper level high pressure builds northeastward into the area and establishes more of a “lid” on the atmosphere.

There are some indications that a weak cold front.. with stronger northwest winds aloft.. will make it southward into our area by Sunday into Monday next week. With upper air high pressure increasing its hold on the area, afternoon high temperatures locally may peak by Saturday and Sunday as the front tries to move deeper in Texas. I’m not yet convinced that the front will make it this far south and will hold off on any rain chances.

Based upon the latest NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance, no rainfall is expected over the next seven days for the local area.

Have a good Tuesday..
