Today – Clouds Increase High: 48°
Surface high pressure to the east will be influencing our wind flow.
Winds have shifted from the north to out of the south for the rest of the week. The southerly winds will continue to pull in moisture from the Gulf as we end the work week. Dew points will increase each just adding a tad more moisture into our area.
Clouds will increase this afternoon with temperatures right around normal. Then another cold night in store for us with temperatures right around the freezing mark.
Thursday – Rain Late in the afternoon Waking Up: 31° High: 53°
We are tracking our first rain event of 2016! A surface low will move over the Texas Panhandle into Oklahoma. Why we care? With enough moisture in place over Texas – showers will develop then move east/northeast Thursday morning into the early afternoon.
Clouds will increase until we are left with overcast skies Thursday afternoon. Temperatures will be above normal in the low 50s around our area.
Rain will begin to move in from the west as the surface low accelerates northeast.
The main band of showers will leave by midnight then a second weaker round of rain will move in. The good news is by the time it gets to us it will break apart leaving isolated showers in the area.
Now once this system moves through it will not drop our temperatures on Thursday. In fact, we will warm up into the low 60s on Friday.
Friday – Rain Lingers into the Morning Waking Up: 45° High: 61°
Isolated rain showers are expected to linger into the morning hours on Friday just before that morning commute. It will still be mostly cloudy in the morning hours on Friday.
Not anticipating a washout with this next system moving through. Rain totals around us will be under half an inch.
Scattered clouds hang around Friday afternoon and evening.
Extended: Another system will then move over our area on Saturday and a key thing to note here is that temperatures will be well above the freezing mark. Snow??? Don’t get too excited, kids.
Sunday there is a possibility that some areas could see a rain/snow mix, but it will mostly be a cold rain event. We will keep you updated on the system moving through this weekend and have a model comparison.
