Another overcast and cool day is expected Thursday, with yet another cold front bringing a chance of widespread heavier rain this evening into Friday morning.
This morning most areas are running in the 40s and low 50s with overcast skies, occasional rain showers and a cold north breeze at 10 miles per hour, don’t forget a jacket today. The front that moved through yesterday remains to our south, and warmer air from the southwest U.S. getting pulled over the top of it is keeping the cool and cloudy skies trapped overhead. Don’t expect much if any sun today and that will keep our highs in the 50s.
We are seeing widely scattered showers early this morning mainly along and south of I-20 through Texas and Louisiana. An occasional thunderstorm has been seen as well, producing lightning.
A few upper level disturbances passing through could bring a few lightly scattered showers throughout the daylight hours, but daytime accumulations will be light. Our next cold front will drop in late tonight into Friday. Ahead of that we may see rain and a few isolated thunderstorms become more widespread through the evening and overnight hours. Rain will continue through Friday morning before tapering off throughout the day. See the latest run of futurecast below.
Some forecast models are showing an additional .5 to 1.5 inches of rain through tomorrow.
The next surge of cold air will drop lows into the 30 Saturday morning with highs in the 40s and low 50s Saturday afternoon with some sun expected during the day.
Another chance of showers will move in late Sunday into early Monday with highs potentially falling into the 40s next Monday and Tuesday. Our first round of freezing temperatures (if it doesn’t happen this weekend) is on the way for the middle of next week.
