Clouds will be on the increase late tonight, and some patchy fog could develop across parts of the region after midnight. Otherwise, winds will be light and temperatures will generally fall into the 40s tonight.
It'll be a cloudy and wet Monday (for some) across North and Central TX. Afternoon high temperatures will climb into the 50s area-wide with increasing rain chances through the day. The best rain chances will be across Central and East TX. Mostly showers are expected, but a few embedded thunderstorms will also be possible.
A vigorous upper level system will lift across the state late Monday night through Tuesday evening. Plenty of moisture and lift will result in widespread showers and scattered storms, especially across Central Texas. Despite cool surface temperatures in the 60s, the atmosphere will be very dynamic aloft above the cool air. A few stronger storms with frequent lightning, small hail, and localized heavier rainfall & minor flooding are possible along and east of I- 35 and along and south of i-20 from Dallas eastward. At this time, no severe storms are expected.
Forecast models are showing cold air arriving next week around December 22nd and 23rd (on average). What we do not know for sure yet is exactly when the cold air arrives, how cold temperatures will be, and if there will be any precipitation and what kind. We will be providing updates when/as we acquire better confidence in the late week forecast.
