We go from Soaking, to Spring-like, to a Santa Chill in this forecast!
Showers increase rapidly this morning which will help to improve what is a DENSE FOG in many areas. Also quite mild in the 50s and will get into the 60s today. As a strong storm moves in, the atmosphere will produce fairly heavy bands of rain and a few storms, especially from late morning through early evening. A few storms south/east of Dallas may contain strong winds and even an isolated spin-up funnel.
We dry out this evening with a MILD day in store for Wednesday. The only question is how much sun breaks through the low-level moisture. Easily in the 60s, although IF we get more sun, 70s are possible.
By Thursday a stronger south wind combined with partly sunny skies will still push temps near 80. A strong cold front heads in overnight Thursday and early Friday. We'll start at the highs of the day and then fall into the 40s and stay there all afternoon with clouds and gusty winds. There will also be showers...esp. AM and especially east of Dallas.
Saturday starts chilly in the 30s and warms to the low 50s with a fair amount of sun ahead of the next cold front.
This one moves in Saturday night with gusty winds and air of "Arctic" nature. That means Sunday will struggle with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 30s to near 40. As for precip? It's probably DRY but we will leave the possibility for a few flurries out there for now...likely removing it from future forecasts if the drying trend continues.
Finally, Christmas DAY looks COLD... 20s to start, low 40s PM with sun yielding a few clouds.
