Upper Air Low Pressure Storm System and Cold Front Moving Overhead ….
Rain Chances Diminish Later Today into Early Tonight ….
Sunshine Returns with Warmer Temperatures Late Week into the Weekend ….
On this Wednesday…. the cold front has moved southeastward to off the Texas coast with high pressure.. centered over the Great Lakes.. building in from the north and northeast into Texas. Given this surface pressure pattern, surface winds are northerly across our area of Texas.
In the upper levels of the atmosphere, a counterclockwise rotating low pressure disturbance is over northwest Texas… the Oklahoma panhandle and southwestern Kansas. As a result of this upper air wind flow, our upper level winds are moderate westerly with winds over Austin.
The upper level low pressure storm system out west is sending upper air disturbances over the cooler air at the surface with continued rain chances being the result.
By tonight into Thursday, the upper air disturbance will move to our east with a dry and stable weather pattern developing with surface high pressure prevailing tomorrow afternoon through Friday and through next weekend with plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures expected.
Have a good Wednesday night and Thursday…

At 815am… Doppler weather radar shows a rain and thunderstorm cluster moving eastward into the Texas Hill Country from areas near and south of Junction. This could produce a sub-severe hail threat to part of the IH35 corridor.. mainly south of Austin.. later this morning. I do not expect severe weather.
I will continue to monitor this.. but I do not anticipate having to issue any further updates.
