Will it rain this weekend? Yes... Will it be a washout? No...
Today’s rain won’t be confined to our south along a boundary, we actually have some scattered showers and weak thunderstorms speckled throughout the area. There could be some pockets of locally, heavy rain and some lightning but generally these storms will be exception, not the rule. Low temperatures will be in the 60s and let’s not gloss over that... that’s below normal and mild for time time of year. Let’s enjoy that for a little while longer before we see our lows & our daily highs start to climb a bit next week.
Our main energy and driving lift feature for rain chances is going to be on the move over the next few days and headed to the northeast portion of the state into Oklahoma by Sunday. As it glides across Texas, we will see a chance for a few more showers/storms tomorrow & Sunday, with Saturday being our best chance for rain over the weekend.
The general motion of the rain this evening, and for the weekend, will be from the southeast to the northwest as they travel around the upper level low. Tomorrow we might see some heavy rain in a few thunderstorms and some lightning is possible with the best chance for rain late morning through sundown. The weekend isn’t a total washout, but isolated spots of flooding are possible across our eastern counties. Morning lows will be in the 60s, while afternoon highs will be in the 70s and 80s throughout the weekend.
Midweek onward into late next week should see us return to a more typical early summer pattern, with more sunshine than rain and temperatures bumping into the mid and upper 80s. Until then, better to have the rain gear along with you!
