Warmest Day of the Week – Pattern Change Looming for This Weekend And Next Week

Unseasonably warm conditions continue today with slightly less chances for scattered showers and storms.  Today will likely be the hottest day this week before we begin to see temps tick down a few degrees as we get into the end of the work week.  A weak cool front will move into the panhandle region today, but will not have much impact before it dissipates by tomorrow.

Mild and dry will be the weather theme this weekend as high pressure remains firmly in place over our state.  Forecast highs each day will remain at or slightly below seasonal averages for this time of the year and rain chances across all but deep south Texas will be non-existent.
