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….
