SHORT TERM
 
 
(TODAY AND TONIGHT)  
ISSUED AT 213 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
A BROAD UPPER LEVEL HIGH, CURRENTLY CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHERN  
MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY, WILL EXPAND A BIT FURTHER WEST TODAY,  
CONTINUING TO REMAIN THE DOMINANT PLAYER IN OUR WEATHER.  
 
WITH MODEST SOUTH TO SOUTHEASTERLY SURFACE FLOW BRINGING IN GOOD  
AMOUNTS OF GULF MOISTURE, SOME AREAS IN THE NW HILL COUNTRY AND  
NORTHERN EDWARDS PLATEAU MAY SEE SOME LOW CLOUD COVER DURING THE  
EARLY MORNING HOURS BUT THIS SHOULD QUICKLY SCATTER OUT BY MID  
MORNING. STRONG INSOLATION, SLIGHT STRENGTHENING OF THE 850 MB  
THERMAL RIDGE, AND INCREASING THICKNESSES AS THE UPPER RIDGE FURTHER  
EXPANDS INTO OUR AREA WILL ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO TICK UPWARDS WITH  
AREAS GENERALLY NORTH OF A SAN ANGELO TO SAN SABA LINE SEEING HIGHS  
IN THE 100-103 RANGE. FURTHER SOUTH, HIGHS WILL REMAIN IN THE UPPER  
90S. WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO BE ON THE BREEZY SIDE AS LEE  
CYCLOGENESIS IN SOUTHEASTERN COLORADO HELPS TO KEEP THE PRESSURE  
GRADIENT MODESTLY STRONG OVER THE CWA. IT LOOKS AS THOUGH ANY  
CHANCES OF PRECIPITATION WILL STAY TO THE WEST OF OUR AREA WITH THE  
MONSOONAL MOISTURE OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN - THOUGH A FEW ISOLATED  
SHOWERS IN FAR WESTERN CROCKETT COUNTY CANNOT BE TOTALLY RULED OUT.  
LOWS TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED TO STAY ON THE MILD SIDE WITH A 35KT+ LOW  
LEVEL JET, MAINLY ACROSS NORTHERN AND WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA,  
HOLDING TEMPERATURES IN THE MID TO UPPER 70S.  
 

 
   
LONG TERM
 
 
(WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY)  
ISSUED AT 213 AM CDT TUE JUL 5 2022  
 
FROM WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, AN UPPER-LEVEL RIDGE OVER THE  
SOUTHEAST US WILL BE THE DOMINANT FEATURE DRIVING THE WEATHER ACROSS  
WEST CENTRAL TEXAS. ALTHOUGH THERE WILL BE SOME INSTABILITY IN THE  
SOUTHERLY FLOW ON THE WEST SIDE OF THE RIDGE, RAIN CHANCES WILL BE  
NEXT TO NOTHING EACH DAY, GIVEN THE LACK OF MOISTURE EACH AFTERNOON.  
ABOVE-NORMAL TEMPERATURES CAN BE EXPECTED, WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS  
RANGING FROM THE UPPER 90S TO AROUND 105. HEAT ADVISORIES WILL  
LIKELY BE NEEDED FOR MOST OF THE AREA AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES.  
 
LOOKING AHEAD TO THE WEEKEND, THE RIDGE WILL MOVE WESTWARD ACROSS  
THE SOUTHERN PLAINS BEFORE SETTLING IN ACROSS THE DESERT SOUTHWEST.  
AS THE RIDGE BUILDS IN ACROSS THE REGION, 850 TEMPERATURES WILL RISE  
FROM ABOUT 23 DEG C TO 27 DEG C. THIS SHOULD TRANSLATE TO AFTERNOON  
HIGHS WELL INTO THE LOW 100S EACH DAY, WITH MORE HEAT ADVISORIES  
LIKELY.
