Enjoy the mild temperatures over the next several days. Colder weather will return later this month. If you scroll down, you can see the latest outlook from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center. They believe below normal temperatures are likely across the Plains from March 14th through the 20th.
I actually touched on this in a January 20th update, which you can read in the blog archives (via the menu). Both the late Friday-Saturday system and the Tuesday-Wednesday system will bring a risk for strong to severe storms to the region. Cooler weather can be expected in the wake of the second system, which will be the start of the cooler-than-normal period they are showing.
Right now, I do not see anything in the data to suggest frigid weather, as in single digits and teens like many folks just saw. That said, just know that we will be susceptible to more frosts and freezes in mid to late March. Keep this in mind if you are doing any spring planting, particularly across the northern half of the state. In the meantime, the favored area for storms with the next system, some of which could be severe, will be Eastern Texas on Saturday. More on this tomorrow... Have a good night, everyone!
