Upper-Level Ridge Firmly In Control.

Take a look at the first map above, it depicts the 500 MB (roughly 18,000' MSL) analysis at 6 AM this morning. The mid-upper level ridge of high pressure is firmly anchored over Texas and Mexico. The second map depicts the forecast position of the ridge by Sunday evening.

Notice that there is not much change in the positioning of the ridge. If anything it is forecast to strengthen and expand in coverage. As long as the ridge is centered over, or close to SE NM and W TX, there isn't a whole lot of hope for relief from the heat. Nor will there be any meaningful break to the extreme drought conditions we are currently suffering under.

Thursday, June 9, 2011.

Some of the long-range computer models still want to try and bring some of the remnant mositure from Hurricane Adrian northward into Northern Mexico, and perhaps into the Texas Big Bend Region next week. Will this happen and will any of this moisture get drawn northward into SE NM & W TX? Still a tough question to answer. I'm still hoping it will.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
