In the wake of this morning’s squall line of storms now well offshore, a cold front has been slowly drifting south across the state. Behind the front, drier air has been filtering in leaving very pleasant conditions across much of north and central Texas this afternoon. We still have a marginal chance of seeing a couple of isolated storms develop tonight across the Edwards Plateau region down into south/southwest Texas along the Rio Grande, but the overall threat of severe weather is low. Everywhere else, clear to partly cloudy skies with less humid air continuing to filter in from north to south across the state. A very nice reprieve from all the rain and storms we’ve had this week. And for anyone out there wishing to play “hooky” from work, tomorrow would be the day to do so…but you didn’t hear that from me!
Lows tonight will drop down into the 40s across much of the panhandle, with low to mid 50s across north, west central and far west Texas. The warmest overnight temps will be found ahead of the cold front where more humid air still resides which will work to keep temps a bit higher. Tomorrow’s highs look very pleasant and right at or just below seasonal averages for this time of the year. The sun will be out tomorrow across most of the state with folks across south Texas experiencing cloudy to partly cloudy conditions by tomorrow afternoon.
Chances for storms tomorrow will be slim, and will be confined primarily across far west Texas, deep south Texas and along the Rio Grande across far southwest Texas. No impacts are expected elsewhere across the state tomorrow afternoon, which is good because we need a chance to dry out.
In case you missed it, we do have some chances of severe weather this weekend and into the first of next week. Since we’ve been seeing much “hype” surrounding the severe weather chances Monday through Wednesday of next week, David typed up a quick blog earlier today in an attempt to squelch the rumors floating around that we might see a severe weather “outbreak”. Be sure to check it out here. We will certainly be following the upcoming chance for severe weather closely and will keep you up to date with the latest factual information.
