Drying Out & Heating Up…Plus a Sneak Peek at the Memorial Day Weekend Forecast!

A cold front will continue to push through the state this evening and is expected to reach our coastal areas after midnight tonight.  The benefits of this cold front will be short-lived though as south and southwest winds return by Thursday and we’ll see temperatures soar across the western half of the state.  It’s possible by Thursday afternoon we’ll see temperatures reach 100 degrees for the first time this year, and if they don’t actually reach the 100 degree mark, they’ll come darn close.  While this may seem like quite a shock, highs at or close to 100 are not that...

Storms Likely across Southeastern Half of Texas This Weekend

Showers and storms continue to develop this morning well out ahead of a cold front which is slowly making its way across parts of north Texas and west central Texas.  The front is currently runs in a line from around Dennison, through the DFW metroplex then down towards Brownwood and across areas just south of the I-20 corridor across west central Texas.  This front is not a fast mover and it will likely be Sunday before we see the front move into south central Texas where it will stall and dissipate.  Locations behind the front today will see very pleasant conditions and much drier air.  Locations ahead of the front…particularly across portions of southwest TX/Hill Country region (west and northwest of Austin and San Antonio), east Texas and the northern portions of Southeast Texas (north of the Houston Area) will continue to see the threat of strong to severe storms this afternoon and evening.   The storms well ahead of the front this morning appear to be forming on the outflow boundary of storms which rumbled through the region overnight.  The storms currently across the Hill Country region should move out of the region this morning, but redevelopment later in the day is expected as the actual cold front begins to push into the region.  The Storm Prediction Center has placed a portion of the Hill Country and much...
