More rainfall is likely across most of North and Central Texas today. Numerous showers will develop and overspread the region from the southwest. While little in the way of lightning is expected, a few rumbles of thunder are possible. Rain will taper off from west to east this evening. Temperatures will linger in the mid 40s to low 50s.
Cool conditions will prevail through the first half of the week with temperatures near or just below seasonal normals. Much COLDER conditions are expected to arrive late Wednesday. Breezy north winds on Wednesday will diminish Wednesday night and Thursday morning, ensuring the coldest temperatures in 2 years with low temperatures falling into the 20s and lower 30s, with wind chills in the teens and 20s. While little to no precipitation is expected, actual air temperatures on Thursday will struggle to climb into the 30s. Thursday night into Friday morning will prove to be even colder as clear skies and light winds are forecast with lows from the mid teens to the lower 20s. It will be a good idea now to start preparing for the arctic air arriving later this week. Put those outside faucet covers on and be sure outdoor pets and animals have protection from the cold that is on the horizon.
With freezing temperatures in the forecast, start taking precautions now by remembering the 4 P's: Pipes, Pets , People, Plants! Also, shut off sprinklers as they can cause icy patches on roads and sidewalks resulting in injuries! Check your heater to ensure its functioning properly before the cold weather arrives.
