...NO THUNDERSTORM AREAS FORECAST...
Thunderstorms are not expected Saturday through Saturday night.
Models remain in general agreement suggesting a broad, cyclonic flow
pattern will develop across the much of the contiguous U.S on
Saturday. Westerly flow aloft and surface pressure falls expected
across the Great Plains will allow for southerly low-level winds to
continue developing this forecast period. Meanwhile, recent frontal
intrusions into the Gulf of Mexico will tend to limit moisture
return across the northwest Gulf Coast region. Shallow
destabilization should allow for showers Saturday night from the
Texas Gulf Coast to East Texas. A warm layer rooted around 700 mb
is expected to limit the depth of buoyancy, precluding the
development of thunderstorms across this region.
