While we still have a few chances for thunderstorms across parts of the panhandle and west Texas, the overall theme this week will be dry. But even though we won’t be seeing hardly any rainfall this week, river flooding will continue to be problematic over much of north, central and southeast Texas until runoff abates and lake/river levels begin to drop. Numerous sections of the Trinity, Brazos, San Bernard and Guadalupe remain under flood warnings as they continue to crest downstream. Thankfully, this week as a whole, looks to remain mostly rain-free as high pressure will continue to build and move east over the state this week. The exception to that will be the aforementioned panhandle and west Texas regions which will continue to see late afternoon and evening storm development similar to what we’ve seen today. For tonight, these storms are expected to decrease in intensity by midnight and a few may survive the journey across western north Texas into the morning hours. Nothing severe is expected, but a few of the stronger cells may contain some small hail and gusty winds.
Lows tonight, very pleasant and in the 60’s for most areas. Highs tomorrow…a couple of degrees warmer than today, but still quite pleasant with abundant evaporation helping to keep temperatures in check. Warmest areas will be out west where humidity will be lower and allow temps to climb a bit higher.
Just a Marginal Risk of severe storms tomorrow afternoon and evening with another round of storms building in eastern New Mexico and southeastern Colorado and crossing over the border into the panhandle and parts of west Texas. Similar to this evening, small hail and gusty winds will be the main threats. That’s it for this update! Enjoy the quiet weather and respite from all the heavy rain while it lasts!
