Yesterday’s cool front is slowly working its way south this morning across north Texas. We’re expecting a few scattered showers and thunderstorms as it moves through the DFW metro and south towards I-20, but the best chances for seeing precip will be this afternoon along and behind the front as it settles in across central and west central Texas. Rainfall amounts outside of what’s already fallen across the northern panhandle will not be all that significant. We will have to wait until mid to late week with the arrival of a second, stronger, cold front before the rain machine really kicks into gear.
Highs today, slightly cooler and more pleasant behind the front. It’s a pretty lame front, so it won’t make all the much difference in temps today or tomorrow. What we’ll mostly see if drier air moving into the northern portions of the state, which of course means less of that muggy feeling. This front will actually begin to lift north again by tomorrow evening bringing warmer temps back once again for Wednesday across northern Texas.
The second, stronger, cold front will begin arriving Wednesday across the panhandle, then working its way south across northern and central Texas on Thursday. By Friday, the front will be dipping down into the south central zones and stalling out. This will bring the rain chances further south as well as we head into the latter part of the week and into the weekend. So…just to set expectations…this is a week-long event with some rain chances most every day which will be pushing south with the front. Not everyone will receive a bunch of rain, but a majority of the state will get at least something from this week’s systems, so just hang tight! Here’s a look at the currently forecasted accumulation through early next Monday.
