Forecast updated 11:00 am EDT - 23 Sept 2011
A low pressure system will continue to persist at the surface for the beginning part of next week. This will keep temperatures lower than normal (in the upper 60s) with continued chances for rain. The drought in Texas will continue throughout next week with no rain in sight. High pressure will also dominate the weather of the middle of the country - allowing for quiet weather.
The end of next week will bring with it a more zonal upper level flow for the midwest. This will allow for temperatures to increase back into the mid to upper 70s.
Also worth watching is Hurricane Hilary off the coast of Mexico in the Pacific. It is currently a Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 145 mph. It is currently tracked to affect the Baja Peninsula into next week.
