Seasonal temperatures return for our Friday
Happy Friday! The storm system that brought us rain yesterday is pulling away from our area and will leave us with a mostly dry Friday. Areas of morning drizzle along with a stray shower in the afternoon can't entirely be ruled out for our day today. It is a complicated cloud cover forecast on our Friday because there will likely be a sharp cut-off between areas with cloudy skies and areas with sunny skies. I'll call it partly cloudy overall, but there will be a better chance of cloudy skies north of I-20 and a better chance of sunny skies south of I-20. Temperatures on our Friday morning are in the 40s and we look to climb into the mid-to-upper-50s this afternoon, which is about average for this time of year. Patchy fog is possible this morning, mainly along the Highway 84 corridor.
Tonight will feature partly cloudy skies with temperatures dropping into the low-to-mid-30s by sunrise on Saturday. Partly cloudy skies will continue into our Saturday as highs climb into the mid-50s. A disturbance will move across the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday, but there will be enough moisture north of the low pressure system to allow for scattered showers on our Sunday. An all-day wash-out is not expected. We'll see mostly cloudy skies on Monday with highs around 60 degrees.
A weak disturbance will move through or close to our area for Tuesday and Wednesday. This system doesn't look to be a big rainmaker at this time and so I am just leaving us with stray shower chances on Tuesday and a chance of isolated showers on Wednesday. Highs will be around 60 degrees on Tuesday and then in the upper-50s on Wednesday. We'll dry out for Thursday as highs climb back to around 60 degrees.
