We will see and feel some big changes in the weather across Texas to close out the week, with yet another cold front sweeping through the Lone Star State.
The forecast calls for temps to top out in the low-mid 70s. The front arrives midday with a 30 percent chance for showers and isolated storms, and a much cooler north breeze will follow.
We think it’ll feel like 50s out there by evening, making it cold enough for a jacket again. For Saturday, we’re targeting high temps in the low-mid 60s.
Computer models show upper-level energy from the Pacific moving directly overhead, helping to activate some showers and storms during the first half of the weekend. It’s an overall 60 percent rain chance, and there’s a marginal risk for strong to severe storms to erupt. The strongest storm cells could contain hail and high winds.
Then a Pacific front will move into the region early Sunday morning with what we think will be one more round of showers and possible storms. It’s a 30 percent rain chance for mostly the morning hours on Sunday.
Drier air will sweep into the Capital City area on Sunday, with skies clearing out to some very warm sunshine. We’re planning for low-mid 80s.
Warmer-than-normal daytime 80s continue for the first half of next week, then a cold front is timed to arrive on Wednesday with another rain chance and slight drop in temperatures.
