Today – Rain with Some Rumbles of Thunder. High: 66°
Clouds will increase over our area this morning into the lunchtime hours. We can expect to see overcast skies this afternoon.
The Storm Prediction Center has included us in a general thunderstorm outlook today and the stronger storms will stay well off to our south.
A line of showers with embedded thunderstorms ahead of the cold front are in the western counties this morning. The rain will begin to move into our area after lunchtime today. There will be a few breaks within the line of showers. Winds out of the south will be a bit breezy this afternoon at 10 to 15 mph.
The showers will continue during the late afternoon work commute, so make sure to take it easy on the wet roadways. We may hear a few rumbles of thunder late in the afternoon as well.
The rain will sick around late tonight just before the front passes. The cold front is expected to pass tonight into the early morning hours on Thursday.
Thursday – Rain in the AM. Waking Up: 44° High: 51°
The showers will continue during the overnight hours when you are asleep. Cannot rule out a few thunderstorms still in our area around midnight.
The rain will continue to move east through the early morning hours.
The light blues and light reds indicate drier air from the north moving into our area after the front passes. This means dew points will drop rapidly after the front passes. Dew points will drop below 40° after 6:00 AM tomorrow.
Temperatures will also take a tumble around our area. Winds will shift from out of the south to out of the north filtering in the cooler air.
There will scattered clouds around the area for the rest of the day.
Friday – Much Cooler! Waking Up: 31° High: 44°
December, is that you?
Seasonal temperatures return once the cooler, drier airmass has settles into our area. The clouds will stick around on Friday with winds out of the west at 5 to 15 mph. It will be breezy at times mainly around lunchtime/early afternoon. A noticeable surface pressure gradient will move over the area ahead of a surface high moving over east Texas. Winds will calm down late in the afternoon.
No rain in the forecast for Friday, but you will feel the cooler air once the weekend arrives.
Extended: High pressure will settle over us for the weekend, but don’t get too comfortable. Another surface low is on the way with rain chances increasing on Monday. We will keep you updated on this next system.
