Wow!! What wonderful weather we've enjoyed so far across the Lone Star State this week, and the forecast is bright and comfy again today. Look for high temperatures near or slightly over 70 at a time of year when 72 is normal.
This stretch of bright, dry weather will soon be over. All good things must come to an end, right? The next change in the pattern gradually unfolds this afternoon. Since Sunday's cold front, winds have been out of the north and that's kept the humidity really low. Shortly after lunch, we expect winds to start shifting again, becoming southerly. Like a light switch, it'll immediately bring some moisture from the Gulf of Mexico back into the air again, along with warmth.
Computer models show our skies turning mostly cloudy tonight and they'll stay that way for much of tomorrow. Southerly winds will pick up the pace, with wind speeds around 15 to 20 mph at times tomorrow. We've got at least a 20% chance for a few daytime sprinkles then, as a disturbance moves over North Texas tomorrow night, it's a slightly better 30% rain chance.
Friday looks to start out cloudy but turn partly sunny, and we'll keep the 20% rain chance going then and Saturday, too. Another ripple in the upper atmosphere could help strike up showers & storms on Sunday, it now appears, and that's why the odds for rain are now up to 30% for the second half of the weekend.
A fairly weak cold front is timed to arrive Monday, and that's when we think the clouds will once again clear out to sunshine. Check the 7 Day Forecast and be sure to tune into 'Weather on the 1s' for more on TV or the live stream.
