Happy Saturday! Finally!
Rain showers around the region today....no significant rainfall totals, however...generally less than 1/4 inch. It will be sort of patchy, so I've indicated this in my forecast as "Area Rain" and "Isolated Rain".
Clouds will keep the temperatures pretty mild today as well...in the 60's much like yesterday.
Not much is going to change through tomorrow...looking for a lot of the same....gloomy as mentioned yesterday.
Monday we will begin to see a change...still cloudy, but a rigorous storm system will be pushing through the Desert Southwest and into the Southern Plains (i.e. Texas). This storm will bring severe thunderstorms and heavy rain along with it. Most of the significant weather will be in northern Hill Country & Edwards Plateau (Abilene-Stephenville), the Texas Panhandle (Lubbock & Amarillo), the Interstate 20 Corridor (Abilene-Dallas/Fort Worth-Tyler), and east of Interstate 35 (widespread through East Texas, including Houston). Primary threats will be hail, damaging winds, isolated tornadoes, and up to three inches of rain. Areas further south and west (such as San Angelo, Del RIo, and San Antonio/Austin will still see effects of this storm system...including severe thunderstorm potential, just not quite as high of a chance of violent weather.
Timing of this storm appears to be Monday afternoon to western areas, and then overnight into Tuesday for eastern areas. Stay tuned for updates as I walk this storm in!
