We went into the first weekend of Spring knowing we’d have winter temperatures but hoping to trade that for at least some much-needed Spring rain. What did we get at the DFW Airport for the last two days?
Yes.. a trace of rain that fell on Saturday. The rains have been present this afternoon/evening across our southern counties. Not very generous however, Waco logged just .08″ (and a high of only 53°). For the metroplex highs stayed in the 50’s all afternoon despite the occasional sunshine:
The rain that is south will move to the east and away from north Texas quickly this evening.
We have a couple of dry, cool days in store for us with some cold nights north of the metroplex.
We’ll have enough sunshine and southeast wind to get highs into the mid-60’s tomorrow. Then another shot of cold Canadian air pushes in Monday night. Most of the areas north of the I-20 corridor save for the metro area will have lows dip down into the 30’s.
In the active southwest flow (our southern Jet Stream) we have another disturbance coming in on Wednesday that provides a decent chance of rain (as well as decent coverage). The clouds and rain will keep temperatures only in the 50’s.
On Thursday there is the potential for some stormy weather. As a surface low quickly develops on the front range of Colorado the counter-clockwise circulation could help push a dry-line into north Texas:
There’s a slew of meteorological features that have to line-up to get this scenario to play out. We’ll keep a close watch on it; there could be some severe weather Thursday afternoon/early evening with these if it pans out. It’ll be breezy and perhaps the warmest day of the week regardless:
A cold front sweeps in behind this and makes for a cooler day on Friday. Right now it’s looking like a fine weekend. Here is your extended.
