Isolated showers that developed this afternoon along the seabreeze front this afternoon are slowly dying out now that we’re beginning to lose our daytime heating. We still have a chance at a few showers developing offshore across south Texas overnight and moving inland by morning and a slight chance in the Davis Mountains region of western Texas. Other than those chances, conditions will remain quiet tonight.
Tomorrow, we’ll have chances for additional showers across south and southeast Texas, especially as we get into the afternoon hours. Just like today, not everyone will see rain, but for those that end up under one of the stronger cells that develops, you could get a nice soaking.
Temps overnight tonight will be mild and increasingly muggy as gulf moisture continues to advect northward across the state. Expect most of the metropolitan areas to see lows drop only into the mid 70’s and slightly cooler in outlying areas. Western Texas and the panhandle where it’s much drier will see lows dip down into the mid 60’s by morning.
Thursday and Friday look mostly dry, but by late Friday into Saturday, a cold front is expected to drop south into the panhandle and northern Texas bringing rain and thunderstorm chances back into the forecast for the weekend. This front is not expected to make it all the way to the coast like our previous front, but we’re certainly looking forward to seeing some beneficial rain for areas of north Texas that haven’t received much at all since July. Exact timing of the front and rain chances is still a bit uncertain this far out, so be looking for updates as we get closer to the weekend!
