A cold front is currently approaching south central Texas and should clear the upper coastline by early afternoon and the lower coastline by this evening. We have a few chances for scattered showers along and ahead of the front today, but nothing like what we saw yesterday evening across north Texas. Once the front passes, winds will pick up a bit and we’ll see an influx of drier air and cooler temps. Skies will be cloudy for the first part of the day across much of the state, but we’ll begin to see those clouds scatter out from west to east by the afternoon.
Behind the front, todays’ forecast highs will be much cooler and a good 10 to 15 degrees below average for this time of the year. It will feel more like early March than late April for many locations. Ahead of the front, we’ll still see some highs in the 80s to low 90s which is typical for this time of the year. Lows tonight will be quite chilly for late April with lows down into the 30s across the panhandle, 40s across much of north, east, central and western Texas, and 50s and 60s further down along the coast. Sunday we’ll see highs only in the 70s for a majority of the state with lots of sunshine! Temps will quickly rebound starting on Monday as the impacts of the front begin to dissipate and we see a return of southerly winds once again. Looks like we will stay rain free until we get towards the end of next week when we’ll see a return of some rain and possibly storms by Thursday and/or Friday. We’ll keep an eye on that and post updates as we get further into the week ahead. Enjoy your weekend!!!
