Rain showers are continuing to move in from the west as we transition into the early afternoon hours. Once the rain clears, temperatures will start dropping and clouds will thin out. A strong storm will be possible until about 2pm for locations north of I-20/Highway 80.
A cold night tonight and a chilly day tomorrow is on tap as cold air filters in from our northwest in the wake of this area of low pressure. The cool down will be short lived as high pressure will return, both at the surface and aloft, and allow us to warm nicely back into the 60s for Thursday and 70s for the weekend.
Our next chance at rain looks to arrive late Sunday into Monday. This system will most likely have some storms with it. It is too early to say if they will be severe, but we are watching this system closely. As we move into the middle of next week, temperatures should remain in the 60s.
We are now starting to enter our Spring Bloom. Each year, around the 8th or 10th day of the month, we begin to see plants return to life and spread their pollen everywhere. Also, it appears that we may have turned the corner on the real cold weather. It looks like Wednesday may be the last real cold day as we move into a more Spring-like pattern. We will have to see if that holds, but early signs are Winter may be all but over.
