An upper level elongated ridge will stretch from our area all the way east through the Mid Atlantic states. This set-up will give us hot and dry conditions today. It will be muggy as a south southwest surface flow persists. Hot and dry weather will continue through Thursday.
For the weekend, an upper level short wave trough will pass us to our north. This disturbance may give us a few rain showers and thunderstorms. Being this far out a 20% chance for activity Friday PM into Saturday is appropriate.
As we head into next week, strong upper level southwest flow will initiate over west central Texas as a trough digs over the Pacific NW. Elevated moisture levels will be seen as a gusty south southeast surface flow will persist. This along with possible upper level disturbances in the flow aloft will make showers and thunderstorms possible. At this time only issuing a 20% chance for activity Sunday through Wednesday is appropriate.
