You really could not ask for much nicer weather across the state this weekend. Certainly a turnaround from the forecast two years ago when a major ice/snow storm impacted much of north Texas. It just goes to show you how different our weather can be year over year during this time of the year. For today, sunshine and temps creeping back up into the slightly above average levels with highs ranging in the 60s for nearly the entire state. We’ll also have lots of sunshine and only a light breeze for most of the state. We’ll see the winds pick up in the panhandle today just a bit, but nothing out of the ordinary. Tonight, a cold front will arrive which will not have too much of an impact on temperatures…mainly just reinforcing the cool and dry air already here. There will be no rain with the front as the atmosphere is just too dry. Lows tonight will drop down to seasonable 30s and 40s across the state…even along the coast which will see lows range from the upper 40s to upper 50s.
Sunday will be a few degrees cooler behind the front across the panhandle and the western half of the state, but everywhere else should be seeing conditions very similar to today. A bit more cloud cover across south Texas along with some patchy early morning fog, but nothing else significant. The overall pattern remains quiet and dry until we get into the middle part of the month when we’ll likely see the chance for rain to return.
