Gorgeous Weekend Ahead!

A cold front is currently approaching south central Texas and should clear the upper coastline by early afternoon and the lower coastline by this evening.  We have a few chances for scattered showers along and ahead of the front today, but nothing like what we saw yesterday evening across north Texas.  Once the front passes, winds will pick up a bit and we’ll see an influx of drier air and cooler temps.  Skies will be cloudy for the first part of the day across much of the state, but we’ll begin to see those clouds scatter out from west...

North TX – Slight to Enhanced Risk of Severe Weather Friday Evening/Overnight

We’re starting off this blog update by emphasizing that a lot of what happens tomorrow with regard to severe weather across north Texas will be highly dependent upon what happens overnight across Oklahoma.  That said…here’s the current thinking on how storms will evolve overnight and tomorrow.  We currently have a frontal boundary stalled diagonally across Oklahoma from about Ft.
