Saturday 2/23 Forecast Discussion

The showers and thunderstorms we saw last night exited the area during the early morning hours this morning, and most of today was cloudy and cool. We only reached 55 at Key Field this afternoon. The clouds were starting to break during the late afternoon hours, and they will continue to clear overnight. Tonight will be much colder than we have been the past few nights, as most of us dip down into the mid 30s. With mostly sunny skies tomorrow, we should see temperatures climb into the mid 60s by tomorrow afternoon, making for a pretty nice day. Get out and enjoy tomorrow, because things look to go downhill after that. Another (yes, another) storm system will start to make it's way over us from the Southern Plains late Sunday night. Ahead of that storm system, a warm front should push northward from the Gulf beginning early Monday morning. We'll see some showers and thunderstorms associated with the warm front, and then a cold front associated with the low pressure system should sweep through here beginning Monday afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center does have us under a "Slight" Risk for Monday. At this point, the models are not in great agreement about how far north the warm front will make it and how unstable our atmosphere will be. This will be another wait and see situation. So for now, the greatest risk for strong to severe storms looks greatest along and south of I-20, but that could change, so we'll keep an eye on it. After the cold front pushes through, the rest of the week looks nice and cool. Highs will generally be in the mid 50s, and lows will be quite cool in the low 30s a few mornings. So much for that early Spring.
