SHORT TERM [Today through Saturday]... The cold front that pushed through the region a day ago has pushed to the Atlantic coast. The ridge of high pressure behind the front stretches from South Texas across the Great Lakes region. Locally light north winds and cool temperatures are occurring.
Today and Friday the ridge of high pressure will slowly shift east and into the southeastern states. This will turn the flow more northeast then east with time, however temperatures will remain around 10 degrees below normal for the date.
High pressure will shift farther east during the weekend with a gradual warming and moistening trend beginning during Saturday.
LONG TERM [Sunday through Thursday]... A ridge of high pressure over Georgia will bring easterly winds on Sunday with mild afternoon temperatures. This ridge will slide off the eastern seaboard with easterly flow swinging around to the southeast by Monday. A surface low moves out of the southern Rockies and into Oklahoma with a trailing cold front dropping down and into the Trans-Pecos Region in west Texas. The combination of this feature and the backside of the ridge will allow for moisture to pool over Texas and western Louisiana by Monday afternoon. Precip water is expected to climb to around two inches. Daytime heating on Monday into Tuesday and Wednesday will see the development of afternoon storms. Therefore afternoon temperatures will remain in the mid 80s for the up coming week although shower activity will return.
Winds will continue to decrease this morning as high pressure settles in. A light offshore flow will linger through Friday, however winds will become onshore during the weekend as high pressure shifts east. The onshore flow will begin during the weekend and linger through next week.
