Time to start packing! As always it's impossible to not look at charts for the coming weeks even though experience has told me that what looks like happening now probably won't by the time we get into the trip! Even so, thoughts below!
A risk of severe storms when we arrive in Dallas tomorrow, and then perhaps central TX on Tuesday. Mid to late week sees a ridge start to build but moisture looks to remain fairly extensive so some local areas of severe storms possible, esp before the weekend, as the flow remains marginally supportive. Could be some upslope chances. Then the ridge may cap if off for a while before a chance of the westerlies developing next week, especially in the northern half of the Plains.
