While most of the state will remain dry this evening and overnight, we do have some showers and storms showing up on radar this evening across west Texas and western north Texas along a weak frontal boundary. We also have some storms that have developed across northeastern New Mexico and are heading towards the western panhandle, but it’s not clear at this point whether we’ll see a repeat of last night’s prolific rainfall across that area…but it appears much less likely at this time. I think most folks in that area would prefer for things to remain dry and calm this evening! At any rate, most of the activity now is expected to begin dying out after sunset at the atmosphere begins to cool and stabilize. Before then, expect some gusty winds, lightning and isolated heavy downpours if you’re one of the lucky ones underneath one of these storm cells!
Here’s a look at the latest short-range model forecast overnight into early tomorrow….
Tonight, warm and muggy for most with lows in the mid to upper 70’s. The panhandle and mountain regions of western Texas will experience the coolest temps in the 60’s, which will be quite enjoyable.
Rainfall overnight…scattered and meager at best. We could see a few isolated amounts greater than depicted on the forecast graphic, but overall, not the deluge the panhandle received last night. Tomorrow, high pressure begins to build back west again and the precip chances will begin to drop off across western Texas and the panhandle into the weekend.
