Heads up! Thanksgiving and Black Friday are trending rainier…

We’ve been eyeing the storm system set to roll out on Thanksgiving for a while. While it appeared we were trending drier thanks to a fast-moving storm system. That is no longer the case. We still need plenty of rain to get out of the deficit we’re in, and we’ll likely get a half to nearly two inches of rain, but most of that rain will fall on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Until the storm system arrives, we’ll see a warmer day! Morning temperatures in the mid 40’s with developing fog will warm to mid to high 50’s this afternoon with partly to mostly cloudy skies. A few isolated low 60s are possible where clouds clear for a few hours, but a few isolated speckles are also possible under the clouds. Today’s chance of rain is almost 10%, so you will most likely stay dry. Thursday’s storm system will begin to arrive on Wednesday. While we won’t see too big a sensible change in weather overnight, we do expect a slightly better chance of a few scattered showers. The chance of rain on Wednesday is almost 30%. Without much sunshine, temperatures still remain in the upper 50’s and low 60’s for highs.

Better rain chances are coming overnight through Thursday morning. We’ll likely start with scattered showers and storms in the morning, possibly dry up a little by midday, and another wave of showers and storms moving through the afternoon and evening. While temperatures will not be very warm, starting in the mid 50’s and then only warming up in the low to mid 60’s, there is also a small chance of a few strong storms. If there were to be strong storms they would most likely be closer to shore but occasional squalls and maybe some hail seem possible. Despite a 70% chance of rain, it probably won’t rain all day. There should be some breaks in the action, but the rainiest spots will likely be near and east of I-35. With Thursday’s storm system not getting a kick out of the atmosphere to move away, it means there should be more rain on Friday. The chance of rain on Friday is almost 60%, but the highest chances can occur before midday and especially early in the morning when you might have those Black Friday deals out there. Some dry air could enter our area from Southwest Texas, so there is a chance of some drying out in the afternoon. Cooler temperatures arriving with the Thanksgiving storm system should bring our temperatures down to the mid-50s on Friday. We’ll warm up back into the low 60s on Saturday with a chance of morning rain giving way to afternoon sun.

With our Thanksgiving storm system finally rolling this weekend, some sunshine and warmer temperatures are returning! We will likely see the lack of mild conditions return from mid-November for late November. High temperatures will warm into the high 60s and eventually the low 70s, with morning lows rising from the 40s into the 50s. Another storm system should pull through mid-next week, Tuesday or Wednesday, bringing us another rapid downpour and another small temperature drop.
