SYNOPSIS AND OUTLOOK
Somewhat cooler temperatures and periods of showers are in our the picture as we move through the Holiday weekend. A chance of rain will persist through Monday as deeper moisture flows into the area, an upper-level trough to our west brings southwest winds aloft and a cold front slips off the Texas coast into the northwest Gulf of Mexico.
This morning, a slow-moving cold front is nearing the upper-Texas coast with the elongated frontal boundary extending all the way from southern Nevada and northern Arizona to Texas and a low in Arkansas. The front then continues east-northeastward through the Ohio River Valley to New England and Nova Scotia. Elsewhere, high pressure prevails along the US/Canadian border from British Columbia to Quebec.
At the upper-levels, we find a broad high pressure ridge over the southeastern third of the country and a large upper-level low and associated pressure trough over the Great Basin and Desert Southwest regions of the West.
Mild temperatures will give way to slightly cooler conditions as we move through the weekend. Rain chances will persist through Sunday with a lower chance on Monday and an increasing chance of rain again by Tuesday as another cold front moves into Texas. Meanwhile, upper-level moisture, enhanced by Hurricane Sandra in the Pacific, continues flowing into Texas behind a slow-moving cold front. As a result, heavy rains will continue in the Dallas-Ft.Worth area and parts of Oklahoma.
Storm development is not expected in the Tropical Atlantic Basin at this time.
