Friday, May 24 Forecast Discussion

A beautiful day outside today with low humidity and temperatures in the lower to middle 80s. High pressure has build in from the north behind our cold front, and the cool and dry air is continuing to filter in from the north. We will see a very chilly night tonight as a result. Lows will bottom out around 50, only 3 degrees from our record low of 47.

Despite the cold start, dry air warms up very quickly and that will allow us to warm to the mid 80s tomorrow under ample sunshine. We keep plenty of sun Sunday and Monday as highs will push 90 degrees again. It looks like we should all reach 90 during the middle to later portions of next week as the air mass over us warms, causing our highs to increase each day.

Rain is still remaining out of the forecast as upper level high pressure holds firm. Upper level highs feedback off of warm air, so we could be entering into our summertime pattern already with a high over the Gulf of Mexico. We will see if this high breaks down late next week or hold firm into the beginning of June. Either way, it looks like very few cold fronts will be approaching in the long-term. That means our main rain produces now shift to pop-up storms and tropical systems.
