Sunny And Warm Today 9/23/13
Monday Weather Update
Greg Morgan – Chief Meteorologist
The first full day of Fall won’t feel like Fall at all. Sunny skies are expected across Southwest Texas. Highs will top out around 90 for most of the area. A cold front will push into Southeast New Mexico and the northern portions of the Permian Basin. This will keep temperatures from getting out of the 80’s across the northwest 1/3 of the area.
The cold front, mentioned above will continue to move through the area overnight, shifting the winds around to the north. While no significant cooling is expected, there will be a noticeably cooler night in place. Overnight lows will bottom out in the lower to mid 50’s for much of the area.
High Pressure will build into the region over much of the week, allowing sunny skies and warmer temperatures to dominate the weather pattern. Look for highs in the upper 80’s on Tuesday and lower 90’s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The next storm system of importance will move out of the Pacific Northwest late in the week. As the storm system moves into the Four Corners Region on Friday, clouds will begin to increase in southwesterly flow aloft over West Texas. At the surface, moisture will quickly return to the area. The storm system will likely eject to the north of us. However, a cold front will drag through the area in its wake. This will bring cooler temperatures and a chance of rain to the region on Saturday.
Cooler air will reside over the area on Sunday. However, the chance of rain should move east of the area by the late part of the weekend.
