SUNDAY UPDATE:  Quiet Couple of Days – More Changes This Week

The front that brought rain & storms to the state yesterday has cleared the state.  We have a pretty nice forecast for the next couple of days.  Quiet.  Comfortable.  But, more significant changes are in the cards this week.  A storm system in the Rockies will affect us by mid to late week. Halloween could be wet and stormy at times.   The coolest air of the season arrives Friday, right on schedule, as the month of November arrives.

TODAY:  Cloudiness early gives way to a Mostly Sunny, nice day.  High 73.  Northwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.  Mostly clear and cool tonight.  Low 53.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Nice start to the work week.  Mostly sunny, upper 70’s Monday.  Risk of showers Tuesday, as Gulf moisture returns.   Good chance of rain Wednesday, as disturbance number one rotates into the area.  Showers and Thunderstorms are a good bet for Halloween.  The storms could become strong by Thursday evening and Thursday night.  (possibly severe? Not sure yet)   Much cooler air will sweep across the state behind the front on Friday, leading to a chilly first weekend in November.

Here’s Raw numbers off the GFS Ensemble models, suggesting that end of the week cool front will usher in the coolest air we have seen yet, this season.

I will have a video update for you first thing tomorrow morning at 4:45AM.   Have a nice Sunday!
