Scattered Showers Overnight/Thursday; “Almost Hot” for the Weekend 5:00 p.m. Wed 22 October 2014
A mid-level trough will pass through our skies overnight and into Thursday, bringing scattered showers and a few non-severe thunderstorms. Overnight lows will run about the same as last night in the 50s to near 60.
The trough continues eastward during the day Thursday and we should see decreasing clouds west to east as the day wears on, so Thursday’s rain potential is primarily in the morning.
The last weekend of October will be unseasonably warm as a large upper high, more typical of mid-summer, establishes itself over northern Texas. High temperatures will be close to 90 degrees west to mid-80s east Saturday and Sunday.
Surface low pressure deepens to our west and makes for windy period Sunday through Tuesday of next week with unseasonably warm daytime temperatures continuing in the mid-80s. A frontal boundary passes sometime the middle of next week, and that brings our next chance of rain.
