Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service San Angelo TX
256 PM CDT Fri Apr 19 2019
(Tonight and Saturday)
Quiet conditions in the short term across West Central Texas. Surface
high pressure will build into the area tonight, and then begin to
shift east on Saturday. This will allow for cooler temperatures as
winds go light and variable tonight, with lows mainly in the 40s.
South winds return on Saturday and aid warming, with highs in the
low to mid 80s. 07
(Saturday night through Friday)
Northwest flow aloft will become zonal Sunday, with a stronger
lee trough developing. Breezy south to southwest winds expected
over the Big Country and Concho Valley Sunday, with gusty south
winds elsewhere. Temperatures warm up, with highs in the mid and
upper 80s. Some areas could hit 90.
A strong upper trough moves into the Central Rocky Mtns next
week. It will move over Arizona/New Mexico Tuesday, before moving
east of the West Central Texas Thursday. This will bring a chance
of showers and thunderstorms beginning Monday night, with the best
chances Tuesday into Wednesday, as the upper trough brings
moisture and lift over a weak cold front. Given the slowness of
the system, there could be some localized heavy rainfall/flooding.
A few storms could also become severe. However, timing and
organized nature of the storms is currently uncertain.
Drier and warmer air late Thursday into Friday as the upper
trough moves east.
