… A Dry and Stable Weather Pattern …
… No Rain Expected over the Next Seven Days …
On this Wednesday… high pressure.. centered from the southern Rockies across Texas and into the lower Mississippi Valley. As a result of this surface pattern, a light easterlyy surface wind prevails across the area.
In the upper levels of the atmosphere, a deep trough. or line.. of upper air low pressure continues over the eastern USA. As a result of this upper air wind flow, our upper level winds are northerly.
High pressure overhead will move eastward tonight into Thursday with a south southeasterly surface wind returning to the area.
Even so, the current stable and dry weather pattern will continue through the upcoming weekend and into early next week. The weak cold front that I discussed over the last few days that was due for the weekend is not not expected to be a factor.
For Austin and south central Texas… tonight will see a mostly clear sky with lows in the in the 60s with a southeasterly wind. For tomorrow, it’ll be mostly sunny with highs in the 80s with a south southeasterly wind.
Have a good Wednesday night and Thursday…
