45 today, 27 Thursday morning, up to 53 Thursday afternoon, all clear/sunny.
We’re 15.41″ above normal for rain this year. Superwet February 2019 is the main reason for that.
More rain coming.
Rain window opens Thursday night and closes Saturday afternoon. Off and on mostly. Cold too, lows mid/upper 30s, highs around 50. Rain is most likely Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, but it could fall at any time during that window.
Models vary on rainfall amounts. The NAM3 has very little, most of it goes east:
The Euro model has about 0.5″ or less total of off and on rain Friday through Saturday:
Titans vs Texans Sunday.
Bit soon to ink a Sunday noon forecast so this is written in pencil. Not expecting rain. 45 at kickoff. Clouds build as the next weather system approaches and the next rain window opens Sunday night.
The rain window closes Tuesday night. Rain is most likely Monday night through Tuesday morning, then pulling out. Rain may be heavy at times.

We don’t hide data from you. But this looks like a rain event with a no/low impact snow potential, y’all.
Recency bias causes mistakes, so we will watch this closely. Expect several updates, as usual.
