The atmosphere across Texas is currently undergoing a warming and moistening trend ahead of a major storm system scheduled to arrive this weekend. This storm system, currently located across the Pacific Northwest, will help to drive a cold front through the area on Saturday. As this front interacts with an unstable air mass, scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will likely develop. The best chances for rain will likely be across the northern half of Texas. Mostly sunny skies and cooler temperatures will return on Sunday and will likely continue through early next week. As of right now, Christmas is looking cool and dry, with high temperatures around 60 degrees, and low temperatures around 40 degrees. The long range computer models are currently indicating that 2013 could end cool and wet for much of Texas.


Thursday: Partly sunny, breezy, and more humid. High: 72, Low: 54.

Friday: Mostly cloudy and warm with a slight chance of rain. High: 76, Low: 62.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with scattered thunderstorms likely. Some of the storms could be strong to severe. High: 75, Low: 65.

Sunday: Partly cloudy and cooler. High: 60, Low: 48.

Monday: Sunny and cool. High: 55, Low: 35.

Tuesday (Christmas Eve): Sunny. High: 57, Low: 33.

Wednesday (Christmas Day): Partly cloudy. High: 61, Low: 40.
