Texas: Dry Through Friday With Pleasant Days

Posted by Donovan Neal on Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Cold Start - Cold, dry air continues to feed in this morning with temperatures in the mid 20s in some spots.  A light freeze may have developed in some places with the cooler spots.  The sky will be very sunny with afternoon highs in the low 60s.  The average high for DFW on January 24 is 56.

Tomorrow looks very dry and comfortable as well; We start the day in the mid 40s and we end in the mid 60s with a sunny sky.

Friday and the Weekend - A corridor of moisture returns to North Texas on Friday, and that means we should introduce a chance of a few scattered showers throughout the afternoon with moisture surging in from the Gulf.  We will also continue with a chance of a few showers and storms on Saturday with a cold front coming from the northwest.  Timing is very uncertain, but the European global model shows a few showers possible starting Friday afternoon before it all exists the region by Saturday before midnight.  Rain amounts are expected to be very light, and no severe weather is expected.  Highs for both days will be in the mid 60s.

It should dry out by Sunday, where highs will be in the low 60s with a sunny sky.

Next Week - The last week of January looks dry with mild temperatures above seasonal averages with no sign of any arctic air for the rest of this month.

However, the European ensemble models continue to show that arctic air could make another debut to the U.S. as we get into mid February.  No way to forecast this, but just continuing to monitor model trends and patterns.
