After another round of unseasonably cold weather this weekend, temperatures will warm early this week. Most Texans will see afternoon temperatures in the 60*F's and 70*F's today. Tomorrow, temperatures will jump a good 10-15*F in many places. By Tuesday, widespread 80*F's are expected with some 90*F's across the western half of the state. Another front rolls through the state Tuesday night-Wednesday, but it will not be anywhere near as cold as this past one. Thunderstorms are unlikely with this front, as moisture will just begin returning.
Bigger changes are expected by Friday as another system approaches from the west. This one will be stronger and have more moisture available. There will be a risk for Severe Weather during the Friday-Saturday time-frame, but it is too early to get into specifics. It should bring some meaningful rainfall to the state. This is what NOAA's Weather Prediction Center is forecasting for Days 6-7, or from Friday morning to Sunday morning. Expect some adjustments to amounts as we get closer.
More thunderstorms and Severe Weather will be possible at the end of the month as well. Based on our cycling weather pattern, there should be another trough move into the Western US during the last week of April. This could result in a few consecutive days of Severe Potential for the Central US in the final days of April. Check back here and on the Facebook page for updates!
