Summertime? Finally?

Well, its finally happened. The summertime upper level ridge that’s usually right over us by late June has finally appeared on the Texas weather maps. Up to this point, that ridge has been anchored over the west, leading to hot temps there.

This ridge usually stamps out the rain and helps push temps up above 100. This year, things are different. The landscape is so green, that it will take more energy to hit 100, and this year’s ridge is weak for now. Weak enough that by the end of the week, a few scattered thunderstorms could pop back up.

There are some indications that for the next two weeks, that ridge will sit mostly to our west, and Texas will be under the edge. That means no extreme heat, and it also means some scattered thunderstorms will continue to be in our forecast from time to time.
