No winter weather for us as we will stay on the warm side of a major winter storm that will bring heavy snow and dangerous wind chills to parts of the country. Winter storm warnings blanket the entire state of Texas, Arkansas and parts of Mississippi while wind chill warnings extend from the Canadian border down to the Mexico border. Wind chills could reach as low as 30 below zero for some.
Here at home we’ll stay on the warm side with a few showers and even rumbles of thunder as this front passes through during the afternoon and evening. High temperatures today will reach the middle 50s. While most of the precipitation will end before early Tuesday morning, temperatures are expected to drop near freezing for some and this may create some slick spots especially in outlying areas. More sun and cooler on Tuesday with highs in the middle to upper 40s.
Rain chances will return late Wednesday into Thursday as another front moves through, highs on Thursday will be nearing 70 for some and we’ll have watch for the potential for a few stronger storms. At the moment the chance for severe weather on Thursday looks to be low but still needs to be watched. Cooler but calmer on Friday and it finally looks like we’ll see some sun by the weekend.
