Isolated Storms and A Cold Front This Weekend

By  | 

After a busy morning, with thunderstorms a much quieter afternoon is expected.
Look for mostly sunny skies and highs in the 90’s. The dryline will surge to the east and high fire danger will develop on the west side of the boundary.
Several rounds of severe storms are expected to our east today. Abilene, Dallas and Wichita Falls are all under the gun for severe storm.

The dryline will retreat to the west tonight, allowing t-storms to once again develop over parts of the Permian Basin. The best chance of storms will be in the eastern and southern parts of the region.

A cold front will move into the area tonight. This will swing the winds around to the north and allow cooler air into the region. There will also be an enhanced risk of storms along the front as it moves through.

A persistent southwest flow aloft will continue into early next week. At times, a jet streak or two will favorably interact with surface boundaries, such as the dryline and produce storms this weekend. A 10-20% chance of rain will stay in the forecast through Sunday.

Sunday night, another healthy environment sets up favoring the development of thunderstorms. This pattern will linger into Monday.

Another cold front is expected on Tuesday, bringing with it a good chance of rain Monday night into Tuesday.
