A majority of this morning’s rain will move east out of Texas by noon. We may see scattered showers continue from the Hill Country northeast across Central Texas into East Texas through the afternoon hours. By far most will be drying out this afternoon as a major winter storm continues to unfold to our northeast. The easiest way to track the weather around you is by using our ‘Local Weather’ tabs or visiting our free interactive weather radar at texasstormchasers.com/radar.

Since we usually start out in the Texas Panhandle let’s do it differently today. It’s going to be another hot day in the Rio Grande Valley and Deep South Texas with temperatures climbing into the upper 70s to mid and upper 80s by this afternoon. McAllen’s forecast high temperature today is 87 degrees with Corpus Christi at a balmy 80. San Antonio will be cooler at 62 degrees with Houston at a comfortable 65. Definitely not anything to complain about this time of year, especially considering the weather a hundred miles to the north. It’s going to be a cool day for the northern half of Texas as clouds start clearing out and cool air settles in. Texarkana will peak out at a chilly 38 degrees, Tyler at 46, Fort Worth at 41, Waco at 44, and Wichita Falls at 38 degrees. The Texas Panhandle and South Plains will be a bit warmer as we start to see the airmass moderate behind the upper level storm system. The Permian Basin will be the middle ground with high temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
