Monday, April 1 Forecast Discussion

Plenty of sunshine greeted us today, and believe it or not, a cold front is actually working through as we speak. The only thing this dry front is doing is lowering our moisture a bit, but it will only begin increasing again tomorrow.

Tuesday will be a transition day as clouds begin to increase from our west. Our next system will be moving out of Texas and heading our direction. Rain will hold off until Wednesday when showers and a rumble of thunder is possible. The bulk of the rain looks to arrive on Thursday as a surface low passes to our south and an upper level low passes overhead. The surface low will hug the coast, which will keep most thunderstorms to our south. We will have the potential though to pick up some decent rainfall amounts depending on the exact track of the low, with the heaviest amounts south of I-20.

We begin to clear out Friday after a leftover morning shower. Temperatures will quickly rebound into the weekend as our winds turn southwest and tap into building heat in Texas. Highs will push 80 through the weekend and we should get to the 80 degree mark on Monday.
