It’s a very quiet pattern across the country, except the lower Mississippi Valley. Does any of that wet weather spread over towards west Texas? Only one good way to find out.
At 953AM, CT, Odessa was reporting a temperature of 60 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. High pressure over the center of the country stretched its southwestern component to west Texas, though the anti-cyclonic flow was pulling the upper level moisture into the region, which was contributing to the clouds over Odessa this morning, as well as a few showers closer to I-10.
One area to monitor will be the tropics. With high pressure likely to remain in place over the center of the country through Monday, the continued east to west flow through Texas will work to incorporate tropical moisture into the region. Tropical Storm Willa in the Pacific is expected to become a hurricane over the next few hours, and will aid in the consolidation of wet weather moving through south Texas as it flows towards Willa. It’s unlikely that much, if any rain can reach Odessa through Monday evening, but it will mean more clouds through the forecast period.

The ridge in the center of the country is going to be really good for the Ohio Valley, but it will be a bit more interesting on the flanks of that ridge. Here is the radar with some showers over Fort Stockton and Pecos.
