It has been over one month since Texas has seen a widespread heavy rain event. Unfortunately, the lack of rainfall in February across a large part of the state has caused drought conditions to return. A cold front moved through the area on Monday night and this will cause our temperatures to stay below normal (high temperatures in the 60s and low temperatures in the 30s) on Wednesday and Thursday. An increasingly warm and humid pattern will arrive for the weekend as a strong trough of low pressure begins to approach Texas from the west. Rain chances return to the forecast on Saturday and Sunday as the above mentioned storm system moves through. The latest computer models are forecasting rainfall totals of .50 inch to 1 inch by Monday morning mainly along and north of IH-10. Dry weather will likely return to the area early next week.
