It was another nice day across the region with temperatures a few degrees warmer than the past couple of days. Below is a look at some of our morning lows and afternoon highs from today.
 
 
 

 
 
 

Moisture will increase across the region over the next couple of days. At first we won’t see many more clouds from the added moisture but morning temperatures will be a bit milder, starting off in the low to mid 60s. The wind will be a bit breezy tomorrow, from the south about 10-20mph and at times possibly even a little stronger.

The added moisture will lead to a chance for storms on both Friday and Saturday. On Friday a dryline will setup somewhere around the New Mexico/Texas state line. A dryline separates dry air to the west and humid air to the east. The dryline will act as a lifting mechanism to help ignite showers and thunderstorms. It currently looks like storms won’t form across our area until late Friday evening, between about 6-8pm. The storm motion will be to the east/northeast, so all of us will have a chance to see some rain on Friday but the best chance will be across our western counties. Some storms on Friday could become strong or even severe, so be sure to stay weather aware.

A cold front will sweep through the region overnight into early Saturday morning and as this happens we will have our best chance for widespread showers and thunderstorms. The front will clear the area by Saturday afternoon and behind the front drier air will move in ending all the rain from north to south. This drier and cooler air will set us up with below average temperatures for the weekend with morning lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s and afternoon highs staying in the 70s.

Temperatures will gradually warm back into the mid 80s by the middle of next week with sunny conditions.
