… A Dry and Stable Weather Pattern Over the Next Seven Days …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… surface high pressure is located over the southeastern USA and the western Atlantic Ocean basin as well as west of our area over the four corners region. A trough.. or line.. of surface low pressure extending southwestward from southeastern Colorado into New Mexico and far west Texas around El Paso. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are southerly.

On the upper air map… an upper air low pressure disturbance is over the Great Lakes state with a trough, or line, of low pressure extending southward into the Tennessee Valley region. Upper level high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, is over the southern plains westward through the southwestern USA. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are westerly at about 15 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Our atmosphere continues to be quite stable with above average afternoon temperatures expected in the coming days.

This weather pattern will continue through the balance of the week and into next weekend with little or no chance of precipitation.

Have a good Wednesday..

… A Dry and Stable Weather Pattern Over the Next Seven Days …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… a weakening stationary front extends southwestward from southern Missouri through central Oklahoma and the Texas south plains into central New Mexico. Surface high pressure is located over the southeastern USA and the western Atlantic Ocean basin. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are south southeasterly.

On the upper air map… an upper air low pressure disturbance is over central Iowa in what is otherwise a fairly zonal (west-to-east) USA upper air wind pattern. Upper level high pressure.. acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere.. extends eastward from the southwestern states across the southern plains into the southeastern USA. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are light westerly at about 10 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Again this morning, we’ve seen isolated sprinkles across the area from the deck of morning low clouds. However, the atmosphere continues to be quite stable with above average afternoon temperatures expected in the coming days.

This weather pattern will continue through the balance of the week and into next weekend with little or no chance of precipitation.

Have a good Tuesday..

… Slim Rain Chances Today into This Evening …
… Overall, Dry and Stable Over the Next Seven Days …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… a weakening cold front extends south southwestward from central Kansas into north and northwest Oklahoma into the Texas south plains and them west northwestward into central New Mexico. Surface high pressure is located over the southeastern USA and the western Atlantic Ocean basin. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are south southeasterly.

On the upper air map… an upper air low pressure disturbance is over central Nebraska and northern Kansas in what is otherwise a fairly zonal (west-to-east) USA upper air wind pattern. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are southwesterly at 20 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

We’ve seen a few morning sprinkles across the area this morning with a little better flow of low level moisture as we start the week. As we add afternoon heating, it’s possible that a isolated rain showers and thunderstorms could develop in areas primarily along and east of the IH35 corridor.

Otherwise, the atmosphere continues to be quite stable with above average afternoon temperatures.

This weather pattern will continue through the week and into next weekend with little or no chance of precipitation.

Have a good Monday..
