passing cirrus. 47

.PREV DISCUSSION...
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
