Many of us have been enjoying our first taste of fall this week as cooler temperatures and ample sunshine has settled in across the area. As a trough of low pressure begins to develop across the Western U.S., moisture from both the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean will begin to surge into Texas throughout the next few days. The latest computer models are indicating that a series of upper level disturbances will move across the area from Saturday through at least next Tuesday. As these disturbances run into the warm, moist, and unstable air across much of Texas, showers and thunderstorms will likely develop. This upcoming wet weather pattern has the potential to produce a big dent in the drought conditions across the area. Rainfall totals in the next 10 days could range from 1 to 4 inches across a large part of Texas. I’m so ready for the drought to end!
