For the second day in a row highs stayed in the cool 50′s. Our Saturday started below freezing but the plentiful sunshine and light winds made for a nice February afternoon.
Tonight under clear skies temperatures will again drop to the 30′s but a south wind overnight will keep us above freezing.
WINDY AND WARM SUNDAY
Tomorrow we’ll have the warmest day in the last ten days. Highs will get into the low 70′s with sunny skies and strong south winds. By afternoon we’ll have wind gust get into the 35-mph range. Clouds will start to show up at the end of the day and gather through the night.
RAIN CHANCES ON PRESIDENT’S DAY
Another windy day will put highs close to the mid-70′s on Monday. But a cold front comes in from the west. Ahead of it during the first half of the day we’ll have chances of a few passing showers with wind gusts in the 30-mph range. By afternoon the front sweeps through, gust will get up to 40-mph as storms form along the frontal boundary.
The better chance of storms will be east of the I-35E in Fannin County down to Navarro County and east.
BIG RAIN MID-WEEK
The next rain chance quickly comes on Wednesday through Thursday morning. This system will produce much better chances of rain and storms for our mid-week. Below you can see how rain will be around still on Thursday morning.
Highs will be in the 60′s on Tuesday with only in the 50′s on Wednesday. We should have enough of a west wind on Thursday to have temperatures get back to the upper 60′s despite the morning rain. Friday and Saturday look dry with typical temperatures for this time of year.
