Austin Camp Mabry……………….. 0.4″

On the Weather Map…
On the surface map… a strong cold front is draped over the Gulf of Mexico from central Florida southwestward into the southwest Gulf of Mexico. Surface high pressure, to the north of the cold front, extends from the intermountain west southeastward into Texas. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are light northwesterly.

On the upper air map… a deep broad trough, or line, of upper level low pressure covers most of the USA and extends southwestward from Hudson Bay into Texas and then into northeastern Mexico. Upper level high pressure is oriented north-south over the west coast of the USA. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our area are southwesterly 100 to 110 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

In the wake of the snow producing upper level low pressure trough, it looks like lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures over the coming days and even into the early and mid part of next week.

Have a good Friday….
