Rainy and mild days ahead

By  | 

Happy Monday! Temperatures are mainly in the low-50s this morning under overcast skies. There has been a few showers and elevated thunderstorms moving through our area this morning, and this will continue to be the case throughout our Monday. Severe weather is not expected, but a few storms could contain small hail. A rouge storm carrying quarter-sized hail is possible, but unlikely. Highs today will be in the mid-60s. Isolated showers will continue tonight, as temperatures stay steadily in the mid-60s.

Periods of rain and storms will move through on Tuesday as temperatures warm into the low-70s in the afternoon. An isolated severe storm is possible tomorrow north of I-20/Highway-80. Quarter-sized hail will be the primary threat, but a damaging straight-line wind gust will also be possible. Tornadoes are not expected. Scattered showers will be with us on Wednesday, with highs in the mid-70s.

We'll see isolated showers on Thursday, with morning highs in the upper-60s, with slowly dropping temperatures throughout the day. A stray shower will be possible on Friday as highs climb into the mid-60s. A cold front will move through on Saturday and bring with it scattered showers. This cold front looks to also bring a major pattern change heading into next week. After a very mild start to January, it looks like the last week or two of the month will feature below-average temperatures. Winter coats to be needed soon!
