Today we venture to one of the furthest south cities in the USA, Brownsville, TX! Sitting right at the USA/Mexico border, this city often sees scorching summer heat. Will these next couple of days see that or will the Gulf cool them off a tad?
At 1253am CDT, the temperature at Brownsville, TX was 80 degrees under overcast skies. High pressure is sitting firmly over the FL Peninsula, extending its’ reach throughout the Gulf of Mexico. A low pressure system attempting to become more organised over the Southern High Plains is kicking off plenty of thunderstorms from western KS to western TX tonight, but are making very little eastern progress. Pieces of energy will continue to eject from this system over the next couple of days, but will ride up and over the high pressure system through the Mid-MS River Valley into the OH Valley, pretty much bypassing eastern and far southern TX. Some very isolated shower activity may spring up during the day, but that activity should remain further inland. Gusty southerly winds are anticipated over the next couple of days, but outside of mostly cloudy skies heading into the weekend, that will be about as bad it gets.
