If you’re a Seattle transplant, this week’s weather across Texas has probably reminded you of home. For the rest of us, I’m happy to announce that we’ll be done with this dreary nightmare fog sooner than I can grow a full head of hair. No, it won’t take a couple of years. It’s more like the sun will come out tomorrow.
Rain is likely this morning through afternoon across the Texas Panhandle and West Texas. This afternoon through Saturday morning, rain will spread east into Northwest Texas, Big Country, Texoma, North Texas, Northeast Texas, East Texas, and Southeast Texas. Another way to describe it – is rain chances across the northern half of Texas and the eastern third of Texas. Snow may mix in with rain across the northwestern Texas Panhandle. Only the Dalhart area has a chance of snow accumulations.
With today’s activity in Northwest Texas, one to three inches of rain are possible. Rainfall amounts will be lower everywhere, generally between one-tenth and three-quarters of an inch. Isolated flooding may occur, while typical street flooding is probable. Severe thunderstorms aren’t expected to occur, but small hail is possible. Rain chances will conclude on Saturday morning.
Behind tonight’s storm system, a weak cool front will push across the northern two-thirds of Texas. Unlike our arctic fronts earlier this month, tomorrow’s front won’t pack much punch. High temperatures across the northern half of Texas will be in the 40s and 50s, with 60s in the southern half of Texas.
High temperatures from Sunday through Thursday next week will top out in the 60s, 70s, and lower 80s. Skies will remain mostly clear, with sunny skies and no rain chances expected. With the start of 2024 filled with active weather, it’ll be nice to get calm weather. Our weather will turn active again beginning next weekend.
