Synopsis: The low-pressure storm (upper level) near southwest Texas moved west through northeast Mexico on Sunday night.  The feature will be southwest of Big Bend Texas by Monday afternoon.  High pressure stretched out from Minnesota to the Texas Arkansas state line will move south into the Crossroads Monday and Monday night.  Low-moisture levels should help keep the area dry over the next few days.

Parts of the viewing area could be under heat advisories on Monday with temperatures near 110 degrees (Heat Index Wise) from Noon until around 7 pm. On Monday afternoon and evening could see elevated fire weather as winds pick up (30 mph gusts), humidity’s drop while dry fuels stay vulnerable.

For the long-term period, Tuesday through Sunday, the period will start off with high-pressure over the Southern Plains, but the high-pressure will move further east later in the week.

The result of the high moving to the east, will be South Texas now on the southwestern edge of the high, which will open up the door for a few disturbances (and moisture) to move in from the south and east on Tuesday/Wednesday.  Moisture levels will increase to around 2.0″, and this should be high enough to allow for an isolated shower/thunderstorm or two (mainly over the water) with the Seabreeze acting as the main source of ground to cloud uplift.  A trough will move towards the coast during the middle of the week.  Weak lift from the trough will limit rain chances to be in between 15-20 percent on Wednesday.

Temperatures stay hot with the heat indices during the week (105-109 degrees).  Some spots will approach (exceed) 110 degrees and prompting heat advisories with the best chance on Friday (the hottest).  We could see elevated fire weather as winds pick up (30 mph gusts), humidity’s drop while dry fuels stay vulnerable.
