… A Dry Weather Pattern Continues …

On the Weather Map…

On the surface map… high pressure is situated to the east of our area over the lower Mississippi Valley with a trough, or line, of low pressure extending southward from eastern Colorado and eastern New Mexico and southward into far southwest Texas and northern Mexico. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds over south central Texas are south southeasterly.

On the upper air map… a trough, or line, of upper air low pressure extends southeastward from south of Hudson Bay into the eastern and northeastern USA. Another trough extends southward from offshore of British Columbia to off the west coast of the USA. A ridge, or line, of upper air high pressure extends north northeastward from northern Mexico into western Texas and western Oklahoma. As a result of the upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over our local area are northwesterly around 30 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…

While longer range forecast guidance continues to suggest that upper level high pressure is holding strong overhead resulting in a dry weather pattern, it may not be quite as strong by the weekend into early next week. After a recent rebound in afternoon high temperatures, afternoon highs may decrease a degree or two by the time we get into Friday into the weekend.

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

Have a good Thursday..
