Rain has come to an end for all but parts of north Texas as light precipitation continues to wrap around the departing low pressure system. A few areas northeast of the DFW metroplex could see a few snowflakes mixing in with rain overnight, but the chance for that is pretty slim. Strong winds will continue throughout the night and into Wednesday before finally diminishing from west to east by tomorrow afternoon. Lows tonight will be slightly below seasonal averages with lows dropping into the 20s across the panhandle, 30s across north and northeast Texas with 40s across the central and upper coast. Deep south texas will see temps drop to the low 50s.
Highs tomorrow will be on the rebound and close to seasonal averages. We’ll see some nice low to mid 60s across the panhandle, south plains and west central Texas. North and northeast Texas will be slightly cooler with highs only in the mid to upper 50s. Southeast Texas should see mainly low 60s and parts of south Texas will see mid to upper 60s with some mid 70s across deep south Texas.
Elevated to Critical Fire Weather concerns will be present again across much of south Texas tomorrow with breezy winds and very low humidity levels expected once again. As always, please be extra cautious with anything that could cause a fire, and please properly dispose of cigarette butts.
Another cold front arrives on Thursday which will lead to cooler temps across the panhandle and north Texas, but this next front will likely not have much of an impact on temperatures across the central and southern half of the state where we’ll see widespread upper 60s to low 70s. After that, we’ll see a nice warm-up through the rest of the work week and into the weekend! Looks like our next chance for rain won’t arrive until late this coming weekend. Still too far out to put much faith in that, but we’ll keep an eye on it!
