Summer time in North Texas

June 18, 2005 at 11:39 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

High pressure in the upper atmosphere will continue to expand over the next few days, and it really looks like we will see our first 100 degree day of the year sometime between now and Thursday. Factor in the humidity with the heat index and it will feel like 105 each afternoon.

Another factor we deal with is stagnant air, and the buildup of air pollution. Expect to see regular air pollution watches in effect.

There is some indication of change by next weekend. Some of the numerical models we use to help forecast weather are starting to show some tropical development in the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico. There are a lot of “ifs” associated with this scenario though, but IF something develops, and IF it moves our way, and IF its strong enough to push some moisture up to North Texas, we can look forward to more clouds, some showers and cooler temperatures.
