Much Colder Today and Tomorrow 12/10/12
Monday Morning Weather Update
Greg Morgan – Chief Meteorologist
Colder conditions will be in the offing today and tomorrow before warming up a bit late in the week. A few reports of snow flurries started the day off across the Permian Basin. However, any lift that could produce precipitation has moved off to our east. High pressure will settle into the Southern Plains. However, the cold air to our north will continue to be re-enforced by this high pressure ridge and while skies may be sunny, temperatures will remain quite cold.
Clear skies and lighter winds will allow temperatures to plummet overnight into the upper teens and lower 20’s. It appears that the high on Tuesday will warm a bit more than today. However, it will still be a cold day across West Texas.
We will start in the 20’s on Wednesday but warm into the 60’s.
On Thursday, temperatures will climb into the 60’s after starting a little warmer than the day before.
On Friday, another storm system will push across the area. Right now this system appears to be more Pacific influenced and my primary concern will be wind. Slightly cooler conditions will be in place fore the weekend.
