Roller Coaster Temps This Week With Two Cold Fronts Expected – Rain Chances Return on Tuesday

Roller coaster temps will be the theme this week.  Today’s cold front will continue to drift south tonight making it down into south Texas by late tonight.  It will begin to retreat back north as a warm front tomorrow, but it’s northward progression will likely be halted by our next front which is expected to begin moving through the northern half of the stat by mid-day Tuesday.  The western half of the state will see the quickest recovery of temperature tomorrow, with the eastern half of the state staying on the cooler side mainly due to extensive cloud cover. ...

Rain Chances For SE TX Today – Continued Dry Elsewhere As Drought Conditions Spread

Rain chances return to the forecast today for portions of south central and southeast Texas.  Rainfall amounts are expected to be light, but considering the rapid uptick of drought conditions across the state over the past several months, we’ll take whatever we can get wherever we can get it.  The outlook for the remainder of the state, especially the western half, remains pretty much zilch until we head into next week.  Today and tomorrow will feature temperatures above normal and quite pleasant for the first week of February…the heart of the Winter months. The eastern half of the state...

Dry Conditions With The Threat of Grass Fires This Week

With few chances for rain this week, and pretty much zero chances for rain across the western half of the state, the threat for grassfires will continue this week.  The greatest threat today will be across the eastern panhandle down into western north Texas where Fire Weather Watches will remain in place until 7pm this evening.  Dewpoints are already down into the low teens to single digits across this part of the state which means really dry air and low humidity values are already in place.  That combined with plenty of dried vegetation and winds picking up a bit...

Cool Front Arrives Today with Wildfire Threats Across Western North TX – Much Stronger Front Arrives Thursday

Heavy rain across far southeast Texas will be clearing out by mid-afternoon.  After that, we’ll remain dry for the remainder of the weekend and through much of next week as well. As most are painfully aware, many parts of western Texas, including the panhandle region, have been without meaningful rainfall for over 100 days.  We desperately need massive amounts of vertically descending liquid, but it’s just not in the cards for this next week unfortunately.  A cold front is currently moving south through north Texas, but the colder air is lagging behind it. This cold front is not very...
