Wednesday, February 6 Forecast Discussion

Another gorgeous February day outside as our highs climbed into the lower 70s for most of us today under partly cloudy skies. Those skies are thicken with clouds from the southwest as our next disturbance begins to move in our direction. An upper level area of low pressure will swing by overnight and into tomorrow. As it does, we will see some rain showers develop with the heaviest amounts south of I-20 (even then, less than an inch is expected). A storm or two is also possible south of Highway 18, but these should not be severe.

This low will clear by midday tomorrow and should bring a brief break in the rain and may even allow a peak of sunshine late tomorrow. A cold front will swing through Thursday night into Friday, which may touch off some showers as we head through our Friday. I do not expect widespread coverage, but showers will be in the vicinity.

After a dry but still mild day on Saturday, our next big system arrives on Sunday. This will see a cold front work through starting early in the day. This front could touch off some storms that may be strong to severe, so it is something we will be watching closely. This front will also stall, the question right now is does it stall to our south or over us. If it stall to our south, we won't see much rain. If it stalls over us, we will introduce flooding concerns for the beginning of next week. Right now, it appears the front will stall over us which could mean a couple of inches of rain from Sunday through Wednesday.
