T-Storms Return To West Texas 4/1/13
Monday Morning Weather Forecast
Greg Morgan – Chief Meteorologist
Rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for today through Wednesday is no April Fool’s joke! Isolated storms will develop today as the dryline begins to sharpen up in response to a strengthening surface low over the Texas Panhandle. Expect a SSE wind across the region with moisture on the increase through the day. Highs will top out in the upper 80’s to around 90 for much of the area. With the heating established at the surface, instability will be plentiful. Thus, thunderstorms that do develop could be quite strong.
A cold front will drop into the area tomorrow. This will be aided by an upper level storm, currently over California. As the dynamics improve over the area late tomorrow afternoon, expect a chance of strong thunderstorms over parts of the Permian Basin.
After the passage of the cold front, colder conditions will prevail on Wednesday. High pressure will build back into the region Thursday and beyond. Sunny skies and warming conditions are likely through the weekend.
Very windy conditions are expected by Saturday.
