Forecasting Austin and South Central Texas Weather Since 1984

TK’s Weather Discussion….

Updated 845am CT – Thursday / 1 May 2014

…. Not Much Change in the Forecast ….
…. Southerly Surface Winds Return Low Level Moisture and Humidity by the Weekend ….
…. Mostly Dry Weather Pattern over the Next Seven Days ….

On this Thursday morning…. surface high pressure is overhead of south central Texas and northwestward into the central Rockies. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our local surface winds are light and variable.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere… a strong counterclockwise rotating trough, or line, of upper air low pressure extends southwestward from Lake Michigan into west Texas and southeastern New Mexico. As a return of this upper air wind pattern, the upper level winds over south central Texas and the Austin metro area about 18,000 feet above the ground, are west southwesterly 60 to 70 mph.

As high pressure moves eastward out of Texas with lots of sunshine to prevail for the next few days.

Surface southerly surface winds will return with a corresponding increase of low level moisture by tomorrow and then continue through the weekend into early next week. Clouds will increase a bit with the return of late night and early morning low cloudiness.

Unfortunately, I do not see rain chances for south central Texas over the next seven days.

Regarding my forecast, my local forecast confidence: My forecast confidence is high to very high today through the seven day forecast period.

Have a good Thursday…
