As of 7:40 AM it was mild and windy. Most areas were in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. A gusty south wind was ushering in moisture from the south. It was mostly cloudy.
Above average temperatures will be felt today. Expect highs to soar to near 90 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds. This is because of a morning warm front. Behind the warm front expect gusty winds and a muggy feel. South winds will be sustained around 15-25 MPH with wind gusts up to 30 MPH. There will be a slight chance of showers and storms throughout the entire day.
Chances for rain showers and thunderstorms will ramp up tonight. This is because of a west to east moving cold front colliding with warm/moist air over the Big Country. Isolated severe storms will be possible. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threats.
Wednesday will see a continuation of rain and storm chances. The best chance for rain will be in the Southeastern Big Country and Heartland. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon for those areas. Rainfall totals have the potential to be as high as 2″ – 6″.
Chances for rain and thunderstorms will then continue through Thursday morning. Highs will be near or just below average.
A dry cold front will move through Friday morning. This will usher in unseasonably cool weather. The weekend will see lows in the 40’s with highs in the 70’s.
