.DISCUSSION...

A rather benign weather pattern will remain in place across North
and Central Texas as an upper level ridge continues to take hold
of the western United States. With a ridge to our west and a
trough to our east, North and Central Texas will remain under
northerly flow aloft through the end of this work week. In the
lower levels, however, southerly flow will become established by
Friday allowing for moisture to return to the region.

Northerly flow aloft will keep high temperatures below normal to
just about normal through the next several days. High temperatures
on Wednesday will range from the mid 80s to around 90 degrees. A
gradual increase by a degree or two is expected each day after
tomorrow.

By this weekend, the ridge of high pressure to our west will
gradually move westward, decreasing the effect it has on the
region. Afternoon sea-breeze convection will likely develop along
the Gulf coast and surge northward. A few locations across central
Texas may experience isolated showers and storms Saturday and
Sunday afternoon. All convection is expected to remain below
severe limits, but lightning and gusty winds will still remain
possible.

.AVIATION... /Issued 1228 PM CDT Tue Jul 23 2019/
Relatively quiet TAF period at all sites. Winds are a little gusty
from the north this afternoon, but should die down after sunset
and look to be pretty calm around daybreak tomorrow. Looking for a
wind shift to a more easterly direction towards the end of the TAF
period as the surface high moves east through the central portion
of the country.
