LOCAL WEATHER -- THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2015
High pressure centered over northwestern Mexico continues to extend its influence across Texas. A weak disturbance in Oklahoma riding south along the east side of the high is producing precipitation and cloudiness there, but this should dissipate as it moves closer to our area. Highs today will continue to be above normal, with low to mid 90s across the area. This will change beginning tomorrow as a frontal boundary...associated with the aforementioned disturbance...moves across the area bringing a cooler and drier airmass. As the airmass is already on the dry side, precipitation...or clouds, for that matter, will not be present with the front. For the weekend, we will see highs in the 80s and lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Some spots in the Hill Country could even see upper 40s! The high will gradually weaken next week and a disturbance is expected to approach the area Wednesday into Thursday with increasing chances for rain. The GFS model has now become much drier, while the ECMWF has turned significantly wetter. Seeding operations: Seeding operations are not expected through Saturday. Aviation:
