Thursday, May 23, 2019: Storm chance NW…Warm, windy, and humid day

Weather Forecasts

FORECAST SUMMARY:

Thursday will be warm, humid, and windy.  Winds will come from the south at around 15-25 MPH with wind gusts around 35 MPH. This wind will push warm moist air up from the Gulf of Mexico into our area. It will also cause smoke from wildfires in Mexico to be advected into the Big Country. As a result a haze will be seen in the sky for the day. It will decrease visibilities slightly.  High temperatures will be around 88. There will be a few chances for isolated showers or thunderstorms in the NW Big Country. A few of the storms may become strong to severe. Overnight, breezy south winds will continue to push warm moist air into our region. In response, temperatures will only fall down to the lower 70’s.

As we stay in the south west flow aloft and in an overal moist atmospheric setup, rain and storm chances will persist into Friday and Saturday. The severe weather threat is low and any storms that develop will be isolated in nature. 

Over the weekend there could be a few isolated rain showers and thunderstorms. However, coverage will be limited due to more stable air entering the region. Otherwise, the weekend will be breezy and feature above average temperatures. Memorial day should be dry, warm, and breezy.
