Friday, February 8 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

Temperatures are a good 30 to 40 degrees colder for us today than where we were yesterday. Locations north of us in the Golden Triangle are still in the 30s this afternoon. We will see a cold night tonight, but most of us should stop just shy of freezing tonight, although our normally colder spots and locations north of Interstate 20 could dip below freezing briefly tonight.

Highs will be seasonal tomorrow just shy of 60 with us back into the 60s on Sunday and 70s by Monday.

Moisture will be returning this weekend, but models have backed off on rainfall potential on Sunday and keep us dry until late Monday, so I will drop rain chances for Sunday in the forecast. Isolated showers will arrive on Monday, likely late in the day, with periods of rain on Tuesday. At this point, thunderstorms look unlikely with rainfall amounts perhaps near one inch.

We dry out for Wednesday before our next system arrive Valentine's Day into Friday to bring more showers to the area. It is too far out and low confidence of when exactly the front will pass, so I will split rain chances between the two days for now with temperatures dropping on Friday. Models do hint that we could warm up again heading into next weekend.
