A weak cool front will make its way through the state today and arrive along the coast by tonight.  Other than a the winds shifting from the north and a reinforcing shot of dry air, today’s front will be hardly noticeable as forecast highs will remain just above normal for both today and tomorrow.  It will also arrive dry with no chance for rain. The lack of rain has been great for holiday travel this week, but there are many parts of the state that haven’t seen a drop of rain in over two or more weeks now and drought conditions are returning.  Unfortunately, the forecast isn’t favorable for meaningful rainfall anytime soon, so we continue to wait.  That said…the forecast for the work week ahead remains quiet and dry overall, but we will see another couple of cold fronts move through by the time we reach next weekend.  A stronger front will arrive Tuesday afternoon and will push through the state Tuesday night into Wednesday.  Other than a few showers across northeast Texas, rainfall chances are pretty slim with this front.  Following Tuesday’s front, another cold front is currently forecast to arrive by Friday, but at this point, it looks like it will be weaker than Tuesday’s front.  And for those wondering…nothing “arctic” in nature is showing up in the long-range models for the next two weeks or so. What is showing up in the long-term trends is better chances for rainfall as we get towards mid-December.  We’ll have to wait and see if that continues to remain a trend.  Until then, keep the water hoses out and enjoy the tranquil mid-fall weather!
