Updated 915am CT – Wednesday / 16 August 2017

.. Little Change ..
.. Considerable Sunshine and Above Average High Temperatures ..

On the Weather Map…
On the surface map… surface high pressure is located over the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Florida and over the four corners region. A trough, or line, of low pressure and surface cold front extends from a surface low over the Kansas/Nebraska border southwestward into eastern and southern New Mexico. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are southerly.

Upper air map… a broad low pressure trough extends southward from south central Canada through the southwestern USA with a leading disturbance, within the broad counter clockwise rotating trough, into the central plains states. Upper level high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, extends from the northwest Gulf of Mexico into south Texas. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our area are light northwesterly.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Upper level high pressure continues overhead with plenty of sunshine and slightly above average afternoon high temperatures expected. There will be areas to our east where rain chances may be higher for late week into the weekend so some towering clouds may be visible to our distant east.

Little change is seen through most of the week and through the coming weekend.

Have a good Wednesday….

.. Little Change ..
.. Sunshine and Above Average High Temperatures ..

On the Weather Map…
On the surface map… surface high pressure is located over the Gulf of Mexico and over the four corners region. A weak trough, or line, of low pressure separates the high pressure area extending south southwestward from eastern Colorado and western Kansas into eastern New Mexico and west Texas. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are southerly.

Upper air map… a deepening low pressure trough extends southward from southwestern Canada through the western USA. Upper level high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, continues over the northwest of Gulf of Mexico across south Texas. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over noth northwesterly 15 to 20 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Upper level high pressure continues overhead with plenty of sunshine and slightly above average afternoon high temperatures expected. There will be areas to our east where rain chances may be higher for Wednesday and again for Saturday into Sunday so some towering clouds may be visible to our distant east.

Little change is seen through most of the week and through the coming weekend.

Have a good Tuesday….

.. A More Stable Air Mass with More Sunshine and Warmer Temperatures ..

On the Weather Map…
On the surface map… a weakening stationary front extends southeastward from a surface low over western Kansas into central Oklahoma and the ArkLaTex region to central Mississippi and Alabama. High pressure is located over the Gulf of Mexico and over the four corners region. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are southerly.

Upper air map… a more zonal (west-to-east) upper level wind pattern continues over the USA with upper level high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, holding over the northwest of Gulf of Mexico across Texas into the southwestern USA. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are light and variable.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Upper level high pressure continues overhead with plenty of sunshine and slightly above average afternoon high temperatures.

Little change is seen through most of the week and through the coming weekend.

TK’s Weather Update for Thursday / 10 August 2017 ….

Updated 915am CT – Thursday / 10 August 2017

.. A More Stable Air Mass with More Sunshine and Warmer Temperatures ..

On the Weather Map…
On the surface map… a weakening stationary front extends from southern Georgia northwestward into Alabama and northern Mississippi into Arkansas and northeastern Texas. Eastward moving high pressure, northeast of the front, is centered over Pennsylvania. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are light southerly.

Upper air map… a more zonal (west-to-east) upper level wind pattern is developing over the USA as the broad trough, or line, of upper level low pressure trough (line of low pressure) over the eastern 2/3rd of the USA flattens. Upper level high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, is re developing from the northwest of Gulf of Mexico across Texas into the southwestern USA. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are light east southeasterly.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

Upper level high pressure is building back overhead late week into the weekend with clouds thinning and sunshine increasing. Temperatures will be increasing back to near or above seasonal averages with highs near 100 once again possible for the weekend.

Earlier indications that a southward moving cold front would move into northern Texas by the middle part of next week has now disappeared. As a result, I will continue the dry and stable weather pattern through most of next week.

Have a good Thursday….
