Cold Front Blowing through Texas Today

Those of you located behind the southward advancing cold front this morning can attest it has brought quite a bit of wind with it. Winds have been gusting over 40 MPH in a few spots this morning. Temperatures generally have fallen into the 40s and 50s along with those gusty north winds. The cold front will continue to move south at a decent clip today and should be moving through the Concho Valley, Central Texas, and knocking on the door of the Brazos Valley by lunchtime. It is entirely possible the front arrives a tad earlier if it continues...

Those in the Borderland and the northwestern Panhandle remain on the drier side of the dewpoint spectrum, but everyone else is seeing those values rise. A dewpoint value of 60 begins to make it uncomfortable outside, 65+ is summer humidity, and a dewpoint above 70 is comparable to taking a shower outside – with sweat.

Now an ‘Enhanced’ Level 3 Severe Storm Risk for Texoma on Saturday Evening

The Storm Prediction Center has introduced a level 3 risk of severe weather (3 out of 5) late Saturday afternoon through Saturday evening in Texoma and for locations roughly along/north of Highway 380 in North Texas. The standard level 2 risk runs south into the Big Country, Central Texas, extending into Northeast Texas. Still expecting a rather rowdy squall line with the threat of damaging straight-line winds. A few hail reports are certainly possible. The tornado risk continues to look very low. Keep in mind that fall is our second severe weather season in the southern United States. I’d remind...
