It has been a busy night from Central Texas further east into Southeast Texas where we’ve had at least two tornadoes. Of-course flooding has been the most widespread issue over the past two days. While the rains are moving out today I expect river flooding will be an issue most of the upcoming week as water moves downstream. Enough about all that though lets talk about what you really want to know – how does this evening’s weather forecast look.
There has been some training of storms overnight in Southeast Texas – right over the Houston metro actually. Its like fate wants to see how many large cities can flood. Luckily things have become more progressive this morning. A line of thunderstorms will continue to steadily move east this morning. By early afternoon all but extreme Southeast Texas and perhaps a few coastal areas will be drying out. By this evening only a few isolated showers are possible across East Texas and Southeast Texas.
Temperatures will be quite nice across most of Texas this afternoon. We’ll see them top out in the 60s to low 70s across the northwest half of Texas. 70s to around 80 degrees are expected across South-Central Texas, Southeast Texas, and Deep South Texas. The Rio Grande Valley will be fairly hot today with high temperatures right around 90 degrees. Skies should clear out west of Interstate 35 with partly to mostly cloudy conditions hanging in east of Interstate 35.
By 8 PM we expect temperatures to fall back into the 50s to 60s across the western two-thirds of Texas. Southeast Texas into Deep SOuth Texas and the Rio Grande Valley will be in the 70s. A rouge shower is possible in East and Southeast Texas but overall the weather is a go for this evening’s outdoor events.
For your Saturday night and Sunday morning we’ll have cold temperatures across the Texas Panhandle and South Plains where it will be in the 30s by morning. 40s can be expected across the Permian Basin, Northwest Texas, Big Country into the Concho Valley, and Hill Country. 50s for North Texas, Northeast Texas, Central Texas, and 60s for Southeast Texas, Deep SOuth Texas, adn the Rio Grande Valley. You can tell where skies are forecast to clear out based on the noticeably cooler temperatures.
The weather will be quiet until Wednesday night when our next storm system rolls into the state. Once again another fairly decent rain event with 1 to 3 inches seems likely from Wednesday Night through Friday across North Texas. Lets enjoy the nice weather over the next few days and worry about our next storm system later on. Have a great Saturday everyone!
