SUNNY BUT COLD - We are starting the day with basically freezing temperatures over most of North Texas; the sky will be sunny today with highs in the in the mid 50s later today, about more than five degrees below our average high. Another freeze is likely tomorrow morning with morning lows well into the low 30s.
Clouds will increase tomorrow in advance of a potent storm system, and some rain will likely develop in the state Thursday afternoon/evening ahead of a storm system. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid 50s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND - We are still forecasting a cold, soaking rain for all of NTX Friday as the surface low continues to move across South Texas. Fortunately, no severe weather is expected in a cold, stable airmass, just lots of rain. The weather won't be much better for North Texas on Sunday; it will be another cloudy, cold day with widespread rain still in place.
As the surface low progresses more eastward, and colder air continues to get pushed southward, there is increasing chance of snow flurries/freezing rain for parts of North Texas on Saturday. If we see this, this could cause some travel issues as a good 2/ 2 1/2 inches of rain would have already fallen and the surface would be cold enough for some of the rain on the ground to turn into ice in some spots. There is still a lot of uncertainties about this and a lot of things can and will change, though. For now, we are sticking with mostly rainy day on Saturday with highs only reaching the low 40s. We will get a real look of how the weekend might playout throughout the day today and tomorrow, so stay tuned.
Sunday looks mostly sunny and dry with afternoon highs in the low 40s.
NEXT WEEK - Monday and Tuesday look dry with a slow warming trend, then rain returns to the state Wednesday. See the Texas Weather Discussion Video for more details.
