The final days of January will continue to be dominated by #FalseSpring across Texas. Fog will become an issue Wednesday morning across the Lower Texas Coast and Coastal Bend. Spotty fog will also be possible elsewhere in Texas, but it won’t be a repeat of last week’s fogageddon. Dry weather will persist through Thursday, with afternoon temperatures in the 60s, 70s, and 80s.
Our next weather-maker will bring rain chances to the eastern two-thirds of Texas beginning Friday afternoon. Heavy rain will be possible Friday night through Saturday morning across the eastern half of Texas. Winter weather lovers will despair as our warm weather precludes any slicky-slicky-doom-doom potential. We will have to monitor for a few stronger storms with hail.
Our Friday and Saturday system may bring one to three inches of rain across the eastern third of Texas. Lighter amounts are expected west of Interstate 35. Saturated soils from last week’s heavy rains mean we must watch for some high water issues. Most rains will move out of Texas by Saturday night, but some light showers may stick around into Sunday (timing dependent on the upper-level storm system).
A cool front will arrive on the back side of Saturday’s system. That front will knock temperatures back down toward early February norms, but we will tend to remain warm. No big arctic outbreaks are expected in Texas for the first week of February.
