A trough to our west and a ridge to our east will continue to strengthen today. This will put us in a southwest flow aloft. Upper level divergence and associated rising motion will lead to a more unstable atmosphere than what we have been used to across the Big Country. This may lead to a few thermodynamically driven afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Activity will be mainly to our west.
The upper level pattern becomes more southwesterly on Wednesday. This southwest flow along with a week upper level low to our south will give us chances for rain and thunderstorms Wednesday-Thursday.
Friday will see another chance for rain and thunderstorms as a cold front will move into our area and stall before retreating back to the north.
The weekend will be hot and dry as the upper level ridge strengthens.
