Cold Front Moves Through In Dry Fashion Today

Posted by Donovan Neal on Wednesday, April 18, 2018

COMFORTABLE MID-APRIL DAY - Temperatures are in the mid 70s range across north Texas this afternoon with sunshine in full force without a cloud in the sky.  A cold front came through earlier this morning, all of the state was dry due to little to no moisture, and most places will continue to stay dry for the rest of the day.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY - Thursday will be a sunny, pleasant day with highs in the mid 70s once again.  We fall to the low 50s during the overnight hours, and we should be around 70 degrees by Friday afternoon.
THE WEEKEND - Once we get through Friday, we turn wet and muggy on Saturday.  The GFS continues to indicate rain moving through North Texas all throughout the day, with the best chance of rain during the afternoon and evening.  Thunderstorms could try to develop here, but some of the stronger storms could turn severe in Central Texas, especially where the SPC has defined a risk of severe weather for areas near and south of Waco, Temple, and Killeen.  
We will most likely have a classic rainy day in North Texas because of the positioning the surface low with some thunderstorms possible.  Rain amounts of 1-2 inches are likely during the day.  Highs will be in the low 70s/upper 60s during both days.
NEXT WEEK - Another cold front passes through during the middle of the week, but most likely in dry fashion.  We stay dry and quiet with highs in the 70s.  See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
