Thursday 1/24 Forecast Discussion

As expected, the cold front moved Southward through the viewing area today and stalled right along the I-20 Corridor. Locations in the Southern part of the area saw highs climb into the mid and upper 60s, the central region topped out in the upper 50s and low 60s, while Northern areas struggled to get out of the low 50s, so there was quite a range of highs this afternoon. Clouds have been increasing throughout the day and will stay with us tonight. They will act like a blanket, and that, coupled with the cold front moving North as a warm front will keep temperatures once again from dropping off too much. We'll see lows bottom out in the mid to upper 40s, and some of us won't even get out of the 50s. Rain returns tomorrow, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours as a disturbance to our Northwest sends out a pulse of energy. While most rain totals will be light, some of us could see anywhere from a quarter to half inch of rain where the heavier showers set up. We should clear out and cool down to seasonable levels (maybe a tad warmer on Sunday) for the weekend with mostly sunny skies. Rain chances return the beginning of next week, as a disturbance over the Southwest US will send out pulses of energy before moving over us Tuesday night into Wednesday. Unfortunately strong storms do look likely with this system, but it is still 6 days out, so anything could happen, but it does bear watching.
