Mostly Cloudy Day/Multiple Severe Weather Chances Next Week

Posted by Donovan Neal on Friday, March 23, 2018

omfortable Start - Temperatures are mostly in the low to mid 60s this morning - enough to warrant a light jacket as you head out the door.  Don't expect much sun today either, but breezy conditions with highs in the mid 80s seem plausible.  A few spotty showers could develop during the afternoon hours, but most places will remain dry.  
The Weekend - Saturday will be even more mild with afternoon highs in the upper 80s this time.  Some places could reach the 90s by the afternoon.  We should stay dry with a mix of sun and clouds.  Our rain chances begin on Sunday, where isolated thunderstorms become possible during the afternoon.  Some of those storms could turn severe, posing the threat for mainly large hail due to steep mid level lapse rates.  Highs will be in the mid 80s on Sunday with partly sunny skies.
Next Week - Our favorite rain pattern sets up this week; trough in the southwest, ridging in the east, open passage for moisture to surge in from the Pacific and the Gulf.  We will have the chance of scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms through Thursday, then we trend dry and sunny on Friday.  Throughout the week, we will deal with multiple risks of severe weather on different days.  Highs should be in the  low to mid 70s for most of the week.  See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
