An upper level low currently centered near Hobbs, New Mexico is moving east. The low is expected to track just south of DFW and bring some wide spread light rainfall to the area for several hours.

Rain will start overnight tonight likely close to or just after midnight and last through Sunday mid-day to afternoon. This system is travelling from west to east, so expect rain chances to begin and end from west to east of course. No severe weather or abnormal flooding is expected at this time.

A look around the country right now. The cold front is entering DFW now as of 3pm, temps behind the cold front under the overcast and rainy skies are in the lower 60s and upper 50s. Large areas of rain and storms across central Texas right now too. DFW is about to become cooler than northern Vermont is, a rare event for sure.

These temps behind the front are similar to what we can expect here in DFW Friday, likely temps in the 60s if we remain under rainy and overcast skies. Might be time to break out the long sleeve shirts!

DFW: Cold front now expected to bring rain Thursday, Friday, & Saturday

For days the GFS model has hinted at a cluster of rainfall developing Saturday afternoon over southeast Oklahoma and extending into northeast Texas like the Sherman/Denison area.

Until that time, daily afternoon highs around the mid 90s are to [read more...]

Florida: Gulf of Mexico low still very disorganized, unlikely to develop

Minimal risk of tropical development now expected from this break-away piece of energy from Isaac. The low pressure center is around 850 millibars or 5,000 ft of altitude, rather than surface based as is needed for tropical systems. Also the low pressure center is located well apart from the area of cloud cover which is [read more...]
