WARM AND WINDY CONTINUES

Highs today will again get into the upper 80′s with windy and  humid conditions  This should turn out to be the longest run of 80° days we’ve had so far this year.

Full Daily Planner (1)

Yesterday we broke a record at DFW for the “highest minimum” of 69°; this morning temperatures are in the 70 degree range (the record is safe: the warmest morning on this date happened in 1967 when the low only dipped to 73°).

We’ll keep an eye to the frontal boundary that is between Wichita Falls and Bowie in our northwest corner. It could trigger another round of isolated severe weather. Yesterday we had reports of 1.00″ hail in Sunset in Montague County, I expect the same kind of threat today: large hail and damaging winds. Storm chances are low but where they form they’ll produce weather that will impact people around them.

Tonight the lows will again stay in the 70′s with some cloud cover and brisk south winds.

BETTER STORMS CHANCE TOMORROW

Another warm, humid and breezy day for our Wednesday. We expect more in cloud cover as  storms chances start to increase, by afternoon we put the risk at 30%.

WEATHER DRAMA ON THURSDAY

We have those storm chances continuing overnight. The best rain/storm chance arrives with the cold front that’ll arrive mid-day on Thursday. We start the morning in the 70′s; temperatures will drop by afternoon down to the 50′s. Compare the two FutureSky Forecast pages: one from noon on Thursday (75°), the other showing north Texas just three hours later (51°):

We could experience some damaging winds and small hail with these storms. Strong south winds in the morning turn to strong northwest winds by noon. You’ll need those winter coats by end of day despite the very warm start.

Friday morning we’ll have lows get down in the upper 30′s outside the urban area. It should stay in the 40′s in Dallas and Fort Worth. Highs on Friday with sunshine will still only get to the low 60′s.

It’ll be warmer then that this coming weekend, highs should be in the low 70′s both days. Dry weather is expected.
