Bob’s Blog on Central Texas Weather
Dry Weather Conditions Expected through the End of the Month.
Please Note: I will be out of the office the week of January 25th.
A cold front has pushed south out of North Texas this morning and is currently pushing off the middle Texas coast. Behind the front, sunny, windy and slightly cooler weather conditions are in place as a dome of Canadian high pressure slowly slides southeast out of the southern Rockies. Northwesterly winds, with speeds of 15-25 mph and gusts to 35 mph can be expected through late afternoon. Breezy north winds at 10-20 mph will continue tonight and Friday before wind speeds subside Friday evening.
Low temperatures Friday morning will range from near 30-32 degrees across the Hill Country to the upper 30s towards the coast. Friday’s weather will be sunny but cool, with high temperatures only in the low 50s.
A freeze is forecast across most of the region Friday night as wind speeds subside. Lows Saturday morning will include the mid and upper 20s across the Hill Country, near 30-32 degrees across Central Texas and the low to mid 30s across the coastal plains. Sunny and cool weather will continue Saturday with high temperatures in the low and mid 50s. Lows Sunday morning will be mostly in the low and mid 30s.
Sunny and warmer weather is forecast Sunday through Monday as southerly winds return off the Gulf. High temperatures both days will be in the upper 60s. The low temperature Monday morning will range from the low 40s Hill Country to the low 50s towards the coast.
Another cold front is forecast to sweep south across the area Monday night. However, no rain is expected due to the lack of available moisture. Sunny, breezy and cooler weather is forecast next Tuesday as another large dome of Canadian high pressure builds south into the state. High temperatures Tuesday will be in the mid 50s while lows Wednesday morning will range from the low 30s across the Hill Country to the upper 30s towards the coast.
A dry and sunny weather pattern is forecast the second half of next week as a broad ridge of high pressure sets up across Texas and northern Mexico. High temperatures are forecast to warm into the 60s late week and may even reach the low 70s by next weekend. Low temperatures will be mostly in the 40s. Today’s long-range data calls for little change in the pattern next weekend. There are some signs we might see a chance for rain develop during the first few days of February.
There are still no signs of arctic air spreading south into Texas over the next ten days.
