Deep upper-level troughing may be seen stretching southward from the eastern Great Lakes, down the east coast, and into the Gulf of Mexico, among other places.
Ridging runs northward via the Four Corners area, located farther to the west. A Northwestern wind flow between the trough and the ridge brings cooler and drier air into the area, which is being filtered into the region.
Across the surface of the planet, the area of low pressure and cold front that passed across the region yesterday continues to travel away from Florida in the western Atlantic.
High pressure is rising over the southeast United States due to this front, and it will advect slightly cooler and drier air across the Florida peninsula through the end of the week, forecasters say.
The upper trough will have moved into the middle Atlantic by the end of the week. The upper ridging and wide surface high pressure will become more west-east orientated beginning on Saturday and lasting throughout the following week as a result of this.
This will allow good weather and warmer temperatures to round out the weekend and continue into the middle of next week, weather forecasters predict.
On Tuesday, winds from the northwest, which are rising towards the southeast United States, will be gusty across the eastern gulf seas.
By late Thursday, this high-pressure trough will have moved eastward off the east coast and ridged through Florida, allowing for a decrease in winds and waves into the weekend.
High pressure will travel eastward after building into the area today, bringing colder and drier air to the region during the following several days.
On Thursday, relative humidity (RH) values will be dangerously near critical levels, particularly in the south, although winds will not reach essential levels for RFW. On Friday, moisture starts to return slowly, and this trend will continue over the weekend.
