.UPDATE...
The slow (north)eastward movement of the large Ohio River Valley
upper low has keep Texas under this dry mid to upper level northwest
flow pattern. High cloud blow-off from Mexico highland convection
beginning to creep in from the south and west. Upper ridging building
up from the south in the wake of this northeastern-exiting upper
low into the Great Lakes region over the weekend will maintain nil
rain chances and near normal daytime temperature behavior. Column
moisture will begin to increase these first couple of October days
as northerly steering winds push in a relatively more moist southern
plains air mass. This will be most felt during the night hours as
evening interior temperatures will cool in the more mild lower to
middle 60s around sunrise. Surface high pressure planted over East
Texas will keep weekend breezes light and variable. 31
