Troy’s Audio Weather Webcast for Friday / 21 July 2017….

2017.0721

Updated 915am CT – Friday / 21 July 2017

.. No Changes ..
.. A Typical Dry Summer Weather Pattern Continues ..

On the Weather Map…
Surface map… weak surface high pressure continues over most of Texas with a trough, or line, of low pressure from eastern Colorado and western Kansas south southwestward into the western Texas and eastern New Mexico. As a result of this surface weather pattern, our surface winds across south central Texas are light southerly.

Upper air map… a trough, or line, of upper level low pressure is moving eastward into the Hudson Bay area with another upper level low pressure area off the west coast of British Columbia over the Pacific Ocean. Upper air high pressure, acting like a “lid” on the atmosphere, covers the central USA north of Texas. As a result of this upper air weather pattern, the 30,000 foot winds over south central Texas are light easterly at less than 10 mph.

What I am Seeing As I Look Ahead…
Through the balance of the seven day forecast, I see a dry weather pattern continuing as the upper level “lid” continues on the atmosphere especially north of the area. As we saw yesterday over central and southeast metro Austin, we could always see an isolated buildup due to afternoon heating, but the coverage should be minimal or non-existent so I will not include it my forecast. The latest NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance suggests little if any precipitation through the next seven days.

Temperatures will continue to be above seasonal averages into next week.

Have a good Friday….
Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
