We’re heading down the weather roller coaster and back into a period of calmer weather. Areas that are foggy this morning should start to see improving visibility by lunchtime. Sky conditions should start to clear out west of Interstate 35 today. A few showers are possible across Northeast Texas, East Texas, Southeast Texas, and the Rio Grande Valley today and tonight. Those who end up under a shower will only receive very light rain amounts. Additional flash flooding is not expected today. However we will be dealing with river flooding and continued low-land flooding for several more days in areas that are having issues.
Temperatures will be warmer today compared to this past weekend. The Panhandle will make up into the low 40s which is at least above freezing. If there are any residual ice problems this morning those will melt away this afternoon. The Permian Basin, Hill Country, Rio Grande Valley, and coastal sections in Southeast Texas will climb into the low 60s this afternoon. Central Texas, North Texas, East Texas, and Northeast Texas will make it into the 50s this afternoon. Those temperatures are still below-average for late November but better than the low 40s this past weekend.
Skies will clear out tonight across the northwest half of Texas. You can tell that by the forecast low temperature forecast for the first day of December. It will be a cold night across the Panhandle, West Texas, Northwest Texas, the Permian Basin, Concho Valley, Big Country, Hill Country, North-Central Texas, and Northeast Texas. Pockets of fog will be possible. We’ll have to watch for freezing fog where temperatures fall below freezing. If that occurs there could be some minor icing issues. The southeast half of Texas will be cloudy tonight but the trade-off is y’all will have warmer temperatures tonight with upper 40s to 50s.
Our next storm system will arrive on Saturday. At this time the best chance for precipitation looks to be over the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, and Northwest Texas. Temperature profiles seem to support the chance of winter precipitation but we’re way too far out to talk about potential accumulations.
