Forecasting Austin and South Central Texas Weather Since 1984

…. A Dry and Stable Weather Pattern Continues ….

On this Friday morning…. low pressure is situated from Nebraska southwestward into Colorado with another low pressure area over southwestern New Mexico. Given this surface pressure pattern, surface winds are southerly across our area.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere… a strong upper level low pressure area is over the northwestern part of the USA with another over the eastern quarter of the country. Between these two low pressure areas, an area of upper air high pressure is over northern Mexico and Texas. As a result of this upper air pattern, winds over south central Texas and the Austin metro area about 18,000 feet above the ground are relatively light.

It looks dry and summer like through the into the weekend and through much of next week with the atmosphere continuing to be quite stable with general upper level high pressure area over the southern plains acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere. Temperatures will be at or above seasonal levels over the next seven days with no rain mentioned in the forecast.

The tropics also remain fairly quiet for now.

Have a good Friday and a safe weekend…
