Today will be warm and windy across of Texas. It’s just a matter of if you’ll be on the dry side or humid side of the dryline. The dryline should extend from near Wichita Falls south to Sweetwater and San Angelo by late this afternoon. Folks west of the dryline will have gusty west/southwest winds up to 30 MPH with extremely low humidity values and temperatures in the 90s. Fire danger will once again be critical. East of the dryline temperatures will warm into the 80s with gusty south/southeast winds up to 25 MPH this afternoon. With abundant moisture in place it’ll be humid with some heat index values noted. Like Monday the dryline should remain capped today preventing thunderstorm development. If an isolated thunderstorm were to break the cap in the Big Country it would become severe with damaging hail. The overall chance of a thunderstorm developing this afternoon is under fifteen percent. Higher storm chances will be possible on Wednesday with the most widespread storm activity possible on Thursday from North Texas into Northeast and East Texas.
