Another evening and another night watching the storms gather to our west. Storms over San Angelo up to Abilene will move in overnight; the rain chances are better from Mineral Wells down to Stephenville from these storms. The tornado watches to our west will spawn another cluster of strong storms they run toward north Texas overnight:
This is exactly what happened last night/this morning. We had some decent rainfall amounts this morning teamed with some strong winds. Our Weather Watcher Network shows amounts as high as 1.89″ to around a quarter of an inch:
The storms of this morning meant cooler weather this afternoon teamed with partly cloudy skies. After six days in a row of 90° weather when hit 89° at DFW/ The atmosphere was also more stable, hardly any rain developed in the heat of the day.
While we expect some rain/storms to come in overnight in our western half, the best rain chances will be tomorrow morning up to mid-day. We are not expecting severe weather in the morning. A cold front that moves in will promise cooler weather and help focus the storm chances in our eastern half later in the day.
With the daytime heating tomorrow (meager: we’ll again stay in the 80’s) I expect some strong storms to develop in the afternoon. Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threat. All this moves east late in the evening.
The cooler atmosphere lessens the chances of severe weather overnight and tomorrow morning. We are still expecting some heavy rain. The forecast models and NWS numbers average out to about 1.5″ of rain expected by tomorrow night at DFW.
By Tuesday we are back to sunshine. A northwest wind keeps us in the 80’s again. By Wednesday a south wind and sunshine gets us right back to the 90’s:
