Merry Christmas All! I hope everyone had a relaxing day today. Great weather outside!
Tomorrow we will see some interesting weather! The morning should bring us some low clouds and drizzle, and then a muggy afternoon as strong low-level winds bring moisture into the region from the Gulf of Mexico in preparation for the storms expected tomorrow evening.
Right now, thunderstorms through West and Central Texas are expected, and some of them could become severe and cause hail and wind damage. Because of the strong wind flow and the intense boundary between warm air that's been in the region lately and cold air that's been northwest of here, significant instability will occur and could even produce an isolated tornado through Central Texas. I don't want to scare anybody, but the potential is there, so just be prepared.
Strong winds will push in behind this storm, so Sunday will be a very windy and chilly day. Portions of West Texas will see some snow accumulation, while Hill Country will probably see a light dusting of snow, if it sticks at all (the ground is pretty warm right now).
