Good Tuesday Morning! Our weather today will be a continuation of Monday – a beautiful fall day. The only isolated rain chances will be in extreme Northeast and East Texas. Otherwise sunny skies and temperatures slightly above seasonal averages can be expected. High temperatures will end up in the 70s to around 80 degrees across the Texas Panhandle, South Plains, Northwest Texas, North Texas, Northeast Texas, East Texas, and Southeast Texas. Warmer temperatures in the 80s can be expected across the Permian Basin, Big Country, Concho Valley, Central Texas, Hill Country, South-Texas, Deep South Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley. I suppose those aren’t the fall temperatures you’re looking for but we should see another cool off in a few days.
For your Tuesday Night temperatures will fall back into the 40s and 50s across the state. The coldest spot will be in the Panhandle where a few folks will drop off into the 30s. The warmest spots will be in Houston, along the coastline, and in the Rio Grande Valley with low 60s. Overall a decent late October night.
The main forecast concern lies with the next good rain chance. An upper level low looks to bring rain chances beginning Thursday Night in the west and continuing into Friday and Saturday across the Interstate 35 corridor. Depending on the timing aspect some locations will continue to see rain on Sunday. Obviously with Saturday being Haloween many of you are wondering about the forecast. Some of you will certainly have a wet Halloween, especially in the eastern half of Texas, but specific rain chances cannot accurately be forecast until we’re much closer to the event. Widespread 1 to 2 inch rain totals will be possible with isolated amounts over 4 inches. A localized flooding risk is certainly a possibility but again will be refined as we get closer. An isolated severe weather threat is also possible.
