The storm system responsible for widespread rain yesterday across Texas is now bringing a risk of strong tornadoes to the Carolinas. Our weather will be much more tranquil. High temperatures this afternoon will return to near average with upper 50s to upper 60s across the state. As usual the Rio Grande Valley will be the warmest with a couple folks climbing into the 70s. It’ll be breezy with northwest winds gusting up to 20-25 MPH this afternoon. Winds yesterday gusted over 40 MPH in spots. Residual clouds over East Texas will clear out leaving sunny skies for all of the state this afternoon.
Low temperatures by sunrise Thursday will be fairly chilly across Texas. Lows will drop off into the 20s across the Texas Panhandle and the South Plains. The remainder of Texas will see temperatures vary from the upper 20s to right around 40 degrees. Topographical features may result in a morning with low temperatures varying drastically over a short distance. No precipitation is expected through the end of the work week.
