Wake-Up Weather: Hot and breezy along with a slight chance for rain and storms

Weather

FORECAST SUMMARY:

An upper level trough is currently off to our west and an upper level ridge is currently off to our east. Far western areas of the upper level ridge will be over west central Texas today. As a result, upper level high pressure will be the dominant weather feature. Above average high temperatures will continue. Being in a transition zone between low and high pressure, the surface pressure gradient has tightened. As a result, the winds today will be a bit gusty. Upper level disturbances to our northwest will cause rain and thunderstorms. Most of this activity will stay out of our area. Thermodynamically driven showers and thunderstorms will be possible for us during peak heating hours.

For Tuesday and Wednesday the upper level ridge will remain the dominant weather maker. As a result, it will be partly to mostly sunny along with above average temperatures.

On Thursday, the upper level trough will lift to our northeast as the upper level flow becomes more zonal. This set-up will cause a surface cold front to possibly move through our area. This feature will cause temperatures to fall to the middle 80’s and introduce a chance for rain and thunderstorms.

The upper level zonal flow will continue through the weekend. As a result the forecast will be mostly dry with temperatures in the upper 80’s and low 90’s.
