Discussion...
high pressure aloft centered overhead with area 12z radiosonde observation data
sampling mid level heights near seasonal extremes. The result
being temps well above seasonal normals with any deeper afternoon
convection closely tied to favored terrain locations. This
pattern looks to prevail at least through mid week and prevailing
moist dewpoints will also aid in holding overnight min temps at
even larger departures from seasonal normals.
Upper low currently over the western Gulf of Mexico will make very
slow west and eventually northward progress around periphery of
upper ridge. This feature could eventually spread deeper moisture
into the region by late week while also acting to support an
uptick in afternoon convection into next weekend. European model (ecmwf) data
remain pessimistic on any meaningful frontal passages through the
forecast period and likely beyond W/ above normal temps likely to
continue until further notice.
