— From your KSAN Storm Team Meteorologist Scott Barry — After last night’s cold front, we were left today with sunny skies and autumn-like temperatures, reaching a high of 76 degrees, after this morning’s low came to be 51. High pressure is currently centered over Central Texas, late this Sunday night, sliding in to Southeast Texas on Monday. A return flow of Southwest winds of 5-10 mph on the back side of the high will warm us in to the mid 80s for high temperatures on Monday, after a morning low in the mid 40s. Strengthening high pressure over Wyoming & Montana will push down another cold front in to West Texas by Monday night, where the cold front is expected to pass San Angelo Monday evening, near sunset. Cooler Northerly winds will again take over Monday night through Tuesday, dropping temperatures to the upper 40s Monday night & tempering Tuesday’s highs to around 73. Sunny skies during the day & clear skies at night will prevail Monday through Wednesday. Wednesday morning high pressure will be centered over our West Texas region, moving to South Texas by late Wednesday.
Thursday will be our warmest & breeziest day of the week reaching a high around 87, with a strong SW wind of 15-25 mph. Later in the week, another cold front will push in to our area late Thursday night, bringing a longer-lived cool spell from Friday through Sunday, as new high pressure builds across Montana & the Dakotas, Thursday & Friday, & heads Southward Friday through Saturday, funneling in cooler air across the area.
An upper low & trough now centered over the mid-Mississippi Valley tonight is providing dry, Northwest flow on the back side of the trough across West Texas. Between Monday through Wednesday of next week, a new upper trough will dive Southeastward from the Northern plains in to the Eastern half of the country, continuing a dry Northwesterly flow aloft across West Texas. This translates to mostly sunny skies & dry conditions through mid-week.
