As promised, there is a HUGE difference in temperatures this afternoon! It is 29*F in Pampa right now, but well to the south, it is 93*F in McAllen. Crazy stuff happens in Texas, doesn't it? Dallas-Fort Worth is enjoying temperatures in the mid and upper-60*F's. Waco is in the upper-80*F's right now. The colder air will push southward this evening and overnight. Overnight lows will range from the low-20*F's in Amarillo, to the mid-30*F's across Dallas-Fort Worth, to the upper-50*F's in San Antonio and Houston.
Chillier weather is expected for more of the state on Saturday, but West Central/South Texas will heat up once again in the afternoon. This is a loop from one our latest hi-res models. Please keep in mind that it is just a model, but it does give you a good idea of the temperature difference from 6:00 PM this evening to 6:00 PM tomorrow evening.
Regarding the Winter Weather risk, confidence is increasing for snow across the Texas Panhandle late this weekend through early next week. A Wintry Mix is still in play for Northwest Texas and far western North Texas Monday and/or Tuesday, depending on where you live. Accumulations and impacts are unlikely for western North Texas at this time, but some impacts are possible farther to the north and northwest. Rain is forecast elsewhere across North Texas where temperatures, while chillier than normal, are anticipated to remain above freezing when the moisture is falling.
