A nice warm up is on the way this afternoon! Breezy south winds will get our temperatures into the upper 60: and low 70s.

There is going to be a major weather system impacting the East Coast today.  This system will eventually become a Nor’Easter and drop heavy amounts of snow in the Northeast.  Definitely not ideal travel conditions so if you are heading out that direction or have family and friends heading out of that area…expect MAJOR delays!

After a chilly start to your Tuesday…we have some nice weather to look forward to this afternoon.  Temperatures will be near average and there will be plenty of sunshine.

A very active weather pattern will be setting up over Central Texas on Saturday.  Abundant Gulf moisture and a strong upper level wave of energy will provide us with strong storms.  I feel heavy rain will be the biggest threat, but there could be some storms capable of producing large hail and damaging winds.  There will also be some movement within some of the storms and that means the tornadic threat can’t be ruled out.

I think there will be flash flood warnings, watches and advisories issued for most of the area with the heavy rain threat.  Our in-house forecast model is showing some impressive rainfall possibilities for Saturday.

With the potential for this high of rainfall over a 36 hour period we will all have to be alert for flooding.

Showers and storms will likely be a big issue for the Baylor Game.

Temperatures will stay in the 60s for the whole game, but the rain could be very heavy at times and if you factor in the chance for lightning…there could be some delays.

Here is the very latest on what FUTURETRAC is showing for Saturday.  Keep in mind that the timing will likely change, but it gives you a great idea of how the radar could look Saturday afternoon.

The main thing to take away from this forecast is that Saturday could be really dangerous and messy.  It’s a good idea to stay indoors until this system has moved through the area.  It will likely be weakening and pushing out of the area by late Saturday night.  Then we have beautiful weather moving in for Sunday.

Showers and storms in the forecast for Friday.  Some times of heavy rain will be possible, but the heaviest rainfall is more likely for Saturday.

During the morning hours we are looking at some light rain and drizzle.  As the afternoon and evening approaches we could see an increase in thunderstorm activity.   There could be storms capable of producing gusty winds and small hail.  The strongest severe threat will be west of the viewing area.

FUTURETRAC is showing some developing storms towards sunset today.  Here is the very latest.

Temperatures will stay mild today with a partly sunny sky and south winds.  I do have a slight chance for showers in the forecast, but nothing severe or heavy to worry about.
