Conditions this weekend will be quite a contrast to earlier this week.  The western half of the state will experience highs today well above normal and very windy conditions head of an approaching upper level low.  The eastern half of the state will be cooler due to cloud cover and increasing moisture, but still also above average for mid January.  Rain chances today will be spotty and confined mainly to southeast and eastern Texas both today and tomorrow.  High Wind Watches will be in place across the western half of the state through Sunday evening.  High fire danger conditions...

Frigid Air With Lows In The Teens to Single Digits Overnight – Warming Up This Weekend!

Sunday Evening Winter Weather Update – Still On Track for a Potentially High-Impact Event Monday Night and Tuesday

No major forecast updates to report with this late evening’s blog update. The data rolling in this evening thus far continues to support the previous forecast for major travel headaches Monday night through Tuesday for a large swath of southern north Texas, parts of northeast Texas, pretty much all of central Texas and parts of south central Texas.  While accumulations of sleet and snow are still forecast to be on the lighter side, what falls will stick around a bit longer than we typically see as temps will stay below freezing all of Tuesday and for much of Wednesday as well.  Winter Weather Advisories will take effect across north and west central Texas beginning Monday night and continuing through Tuesday.  Winter Storm Watches will be in effect across much of northeast, southern north Texas into central Texas and across southwestern Texas beginning Monday evening as well and continuing through Tuesday. For information about your specific location, visit The National Weather Service page and enter your city and state. Here’s a peek at the latest animated forecast model graphics from the NAM short range model output and the GFS, one of the long-range forecast models. Both of these animated forecast model loops begin at Noon Monday and end at 6am Wednesday and are in near perfect agreement with each other on wintry weather developing across northern Texas late tomorrow night...
