After all the excitement this week with the rare and unexpected snow across south Texas, we’ll be looking at a very tranquil weather pattern for Sunday and the work week ahead. Overhead, northwest flow in the mid to upper levels will keep things on the quiet side as we stay sandwiched between a upper level high to the west and trough of low pressure to the east. Temps will rebound to well above normal for most of the state tomorrow and Monday…and this trend will continue well into next week. The mornings will remain cool and seasonal, so everyone will still need at least a jacket or hoodie when they head out the door each morning.
For tomorrow, highs across the northern half of the state will reach a good 10-15 degrees above average. The southern half of the state will still see highs a bit below average…but by Monday, you folks will be back above average like the rest of the state. We will see a couple of cold fronts arrive this week…early Tuesday and again on Thursday…but neither of them will bring drastically cooler air into the state, so our weather pattern overall will stay very “Texas-ish” this week!
Unfortunately, rain chances are pretty close to zero as well…which is really not a good thing. The drought coverage across the state continues to increase week over week and the threat for wildfires…especially across the panhandle and western Texas will continue to be problematic as well. We may see some rain chances return by late next Saturday into Sunday, but at this point it looks like the eastern half of the state will be the only ones to see much rain. We’ll keep an eye on those chances this week and keep y’all updated!
