Brian's Saturday FastCast

From Brian Germ:

Fantastic spring conditions will persist around Central Texas through Saturday evening with clear skies and comfortable temperatures! Overnight lows will fall into the lower and middle 50s with light winds shifting to the south southeast. After lower humidity values Saturday, dewpoints will noticeably increase into the 60s by Sunday afternoon. Breezy southerly winds will pull moisture back across Central Texas in response to another disturbance pushing out of the Rockies. Highs will be much warmer in the low to mid 80s under a mixture of sun and clouds.

There is a very low chance for showers and storms by late Sunday afternoon and into the evening hours, however rain chances will only be 20%. If a few isolated storms pop up near the re-established dryline they could become severe quickly. The threats for any storms that do develop would be damaging winds, large hail, and an isolated tornado. Once again though, chances are low that anything does develop.

Quiet weather conditions are expected to start the work week with highs remaining above average in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Yet another disturbance is expected to push out of the Rockies and into the Plains by late Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm system has the potential to be a very heavy rainfall event. The severe threat will also have to be monitored as the disturbance gets closer. Showers and thunderstorms appear likely out west on Tuesday before overspreading Central Texas Tuesday night and through Wednesday. Early weather models show the possibility of some rainfall totals between 1" and 3". Most of the activity is expected to be finished by late Wednesday, however a few showers may be possible into Thursday. Temperatures for the middle of the week should be cooler, but still warm, with highs mainly in the 70s.

Conditions next weekend look to remain warm with highs in the 70s and low 80s. There may be a low chance for showers and storms but nothing significant is likely at this time.
