Wednesday, February 5 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been stubborn to break up this afternoon despite drier conditions above the cloud deck. These clouds will hold overnight and into our Thursday. It is during the day tomorrow that the forecast gets uncertain. A weak area of low pressure will move along the Gulf Coast and send moisture our direction. Aided with some lift over us, we may be able to get a few rain showers to the ground. The question mark is can we add enough moisture to get rain drops to the surface as the air above it is very dry. If we are able to get rain to fall fully to the ground, we may still be cold enough to see a few flurries mix in. The best chance of any precipitation is south of Interstate 20, and as of now, little to no accumulation of flurries is expected.

Skies should finally break some on Friday as high pressure moves over us and with sinking air punches holes in the clouds. Clouds though will quickly return for Saturday as another area of low pressure will pass to our south. This one may also bring a shower or two, but that looks just as questionable as the rain for Thursday.

After that, the weekend will dry out for Sunday and Monday as temperatures hold in the 50s. Our next best chance of rain looks to be Tuesday into Wednesday of next week as a cold front will arrive and bring us some rain showers.
