Nasty weather across Texas heading into Christmas Eve

Our near-term issue in the weather department is the ongoing dense fog across Texas. Some folks aren’t dealing with it, while others can’t see more than fifty feet. We’ll see the fog continue through about 10 AM before it starts to burn off by midday. Even after the dense fog abates, we’ll see low clouds, mist, and showers continue through the day.

Simulated weather model radar for Texas through Christmas Eve. Thunderstorms will move across the eastern 75% of Texas during that timeframe; mainly along and north of Interstate 10 up into Oklahoma.


Mobile app users will need to click the image/? above to view the animation. Thunderstorms will develop in the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, and Permian Basin this afternoon. Some storms may be strong, with gusty winds and small hail. A brief, weak tornado can’t be completely ruled out. Storms will grow upscale into a line this evening. That line of heavy rain and thunderstorms will march east across most of Texas tonight and Sunday. If you’re along and north of Interstate 10 from Fort Stockton to the Louisiana/Arkansas state line, you’re likely getting rain tonight or on Sunday. Some storms may be strong, with gusty winds and torrential downpours.

Forecast Rain Totals and Flood Threat

<yoastmark class=

One to three inches of rain is forecast over the next 36 hours across North Texas, Northeast Texas, East Texas, and Southeast Texas.
One to two inches of rainfall may occur in Texoma, Northwest Texas, the Big Country, Concho Valley, and Hill Country. With most of that rainfall expected to fall over the span of six hours, we may see localized flooding arise. Expect high water on some roadways and low-water crossings near creeks and streams. I’m afraid those of you with flights may be in for delays over the next couple of days.

Santa’s Forecast: Christmas through the Week

Rain chances will end in Texas late Sunday evening as rain moves east of Texas. That means Santa can get his rounds in tomorrow night without a problem! Much cooler temperatures will arrive in Texas on Christmas Day as a cold front arrives behind the departing storm system. Temperatures will fall behind that cold front as it moves southeast on Monday. The southern third of Texas will enjoy one more warm morning.

High temperatures will be in the 40s, 50s, and lower 60s across Texas beginning Tuesday and continuing through the work week. No major storm systems look likely from Monday through Thursday, perhaps even longer than that.
