… A Dry Weather Pattern …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… a warm front is lifting northward from a surface low over the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles southeastward into north central Texas and east Texas and central Louisiana then off the Mississippi coast into the northeastern Gulf of Mexico as a stationary front. A trough, or line, of low pressure extends south southwestward from the panhandle low into southeastern New Mexico and far southwest Texas. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are southerly.

On the upper air map… a trough, or line, of upper air low pressure extends southeastward from south of Hudson Bay into the northeastern USA. Another trough of upper level low pressure area also extends southward from the middle Mississippi Valley into Louisiana. A third trough extends south southwestward off the west coast of the USA. A ridge, or line, of upper air high pressure extends north northeastward from northern Mexico through the plains states into the Dakotas. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are northwesterly at 40 to 50 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

As upper level high pressure rebuilds over the area, longer range forecast guidance suggests that upper level high pressure will strengthen again overhead with a dry weather pattern through the weekend and well into next week. After a little break in the summer heat over the last day or so, afternoon high temperatures will rebound to well above seasonal averages.

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

Have a good Tuesday..
