Latest updated blog – New work week starting off warm – Nick

Could end with a little summer heat this weekend

Good early Monday morning, everyone. After we had a nice weekend to wrap up the month of May, June officially kicks off today. We’ll continue to keep things quiet today in the weather department thanks to our setup at the surface and at the jet stream level. Our high pressure from yesterday gave us the southeasterly breeze that warmed us up nicely through the day. Even though it’s well to the east of the region, it will help keep the southerly breeze in place for today.


Our weather for the entire week will be driven by the jet stream setup. To start the week off, we have an upper level ridge in control with one upper low off the coast of California. While there is a cut-off low in southern Texas, the jet stream is thinking about grabbing it and pulling it toward us.


For today, we don’t have to worry about any threatening weather moving in. Other than some passing cloud cover in spots, everyone is mild to start the morning out with temperatures in the lower to middle 60s.


With skies bouncing back and forth between mostly and partly sunny through the day, that won’t stop us from warming up once again. All across the area, we’ll enjoy highs in the lower 80s with a south breeze at 5 to 15 mph.


Our Tuesday will continue with our warming trend while the jet stream tries to grab the upper low out of Texas. With the position of that upper low near the OK/TX border presenting a weakness in the ridge, our highs in the middle 80s could be enough to bring in a random t-storm or two for Tuesday afternoon.


As the low passes just to our south for Wednesday and Thursday, those will be the days that will have at least better chances for scattered t-storms. Despite that, we’ll have our afternoon highs continue to push into the upper 80s through the middle of the week.


By Friday and the upcoming weekend, the upper low will fade away and we’ll be back mainly under the control of the upper level ridge. With a weak wave passing along the ridge for Friday and Saturday, we’ll still hold onto some spotty t-storms to get the first weekend of June underway. Even though early June is still technically late spring, we’ll have an early taste of summer work in for the coming weekend as highs start pushing near 90°.


To see how we look for the rest of June and for early July, Doug has you covered with his long range forecast down below.
