July to Start June
The streak of 90° plus weather continues for North Texas.
A Wind Advisory continued for the most of the region until 8 p.m. Winds gusts again have peaked close to 40mph this afternoon.
SAME PATTERN,SAME RESULTS
High pressure continues to keep any fronts or drylines away from our area. A few clouds build in overnight from the south on a strong low level jet that usually builds up during the nighttime. It’ll also keep another night with lows only down in the low 70s. There’ll be morning clouds for Memorial Day but another hot one is in store for us. We should top out around 94° in DFW. Winds will again be out of the south around 20-25mph with gusts in the 30mph range.
A WEEK OF WARM
Here is a snapshot of the upper air pattern for Monday. Notice the trough to our northwest, it’ll produce some storms just to our west but the high pressure ridge will keep them out of north Texas save for the northwest corner (a chance at least for that). Then the next image is the same 500mb forecast but for next Thursday. Notice the ridge STILL over our area and much of the south. This is a pattern that looks more like July and August then June.
Tomorrow will mark the seventh day in a row of at least 90° for an afternoon high. This streak continues all the way into next weekend. And though May provided some ample rain (almost 8” of rain this month at DFW- equal to the total amount of rain in the previous five months) June starts very hot and dry. We expect highs in the to reach into the mid-90’s just about every day. Any rain chance will come Tuesday when a line of storms that form along a cold front to our west might hold together long enough to reach into our northwest corner.
The weather pattern holds into early June, same weather for next weekend.
