Benign Weather with Warming Temperatures through Friday

Benign weather will continue the next few days, although with small chances for precipitation mixed in. Temperatures made it down into the 20s in the Texas Panhandle this morning. 30s are expected in West Texas, Northwest Texas, Texoma, into Northeast Texas. This morning goes to show that we aren’t entirely done with cooler weather just yet. Don’t worry though, temperatures are headed back up the roller coaster of fun in the coming days. High temperatures this afternoon will range from the upper 50s in Northeast Texas up into the 80s in the Trans-Pecos and Borderland. The cooler air in...

Relatively Benign Weather through Friday

Anytime the weather can be described as benign during the spring is something to be thankful for. As a strong Nor’Easter impacts the Northeastern United States tomorrow we’ll remain under a northwesterly flow aloft with a deep-digging trough off to our east. This will bring us several days of quiet weather. Temperatures this afternoon will remain on the cooler side of the spectrum with highs in the upper 50s in Texoma and the northeastern Texas Panhandle up into the 70s in Deep South Texas, the Rio Grande Valley, and the Borderland. Through the week we will see a warm-up...

Numerous Showers and Storms Today and Tomorrow

Numerous showers and thunderstorms are forecast today in the Rio Grande Valley, Deep South Texas, South-Central Texas, into Central Texas. Scattered coverage of showers/storms is expected in the Hill Country into the Brazos Valley, East Texas, and Southeast Texas. Severe thunderstorms are not expected today but we may see some locally heavy rain. Minor flooding could occur, especially in the typical trouble spots and urban areas. Overall, rainfall rates shouldn’t be heavy enough to support more than nuisance flooding. We will keep an eye on the Rio Grande Valley since some folks did receive heavier rains yesterday. We’ll see...

Active Weather Pattern through the Weekend

Fire weather danger will be elevated to near-critical this afternoon in the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, and Northwest Texas. A very dry airmass is in place and we expect relative humidity values of 10 to 25 percent this afternoon. The lacking ingredient will be the very strong winds we had on Monday. However, winds could still gust up to 20 to 25 MPH out of the southwest at times this afternoon. As Monday proved, we can certainly get significant wildfires. Any new fires that develop today could spread quickly, and firefighters will undoubtedly be keeping a close eye on...
