6/7 – Brittany’s “HOT Summertime Pattern” Tuesday Afternoon Forecast
“Summertime Safety” Is The Name Of The Game…
Upper level high-pressure centered over West Texas has expanded across the northern Gulf Coast. This pattern will generally remain in place during this forecast period while disturbances steadily pass west to east across the northern half of the country. As a result, rain chances look to be quite low most days as subsidence suppresses attempts at convection and it will be quite hot. However, wouldn’t be surprised to see isolated t-storms, at least towards the end of the week as the area is on the eastern edge of the ridge. Temps through the period should be low/mid 90s.
The eastern end of an upper ridge over Texas and the western Gulf of Mexico will drift westward early in the weekend. This will allow the mid and upper level flow over our area to become somewhat more northwesterly over the weekend. Disturbances moving through that NW flow will bring enhanced chances for precipitation, primarily Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
