A Red Flag Warning continues for areas west of Interstate 35/35W through 7:00 PM this evening. Southwest winds of 20-30 MPH, temperatures in the lower 80s, and humidity below 20% are resulting in critical wildfire conditions. Avoid outdoor burning as any wildfires that develop will spread rapidly.
Spring like conditions returns to North and Central Texas on Saturday. Plenty of sunshine with high temperatures that will stay in the 70s. West northwest winds at 10 to 15 mph.
Another upper-level system will cross the Plains Sunday afternoon and night. There will be a potential for discrete thunderstorm development east of a dryline and south of a warm front, with conditions likely to be favorable for thunderstorms to become severe. Confidence is increasing in this severe weather setup, as models have come into better agreement. Some uncertainty still remains however, especially with regards to timing and placement of the highest threat area. Still, interests in North and Central Texas are advised to monitor weather forecasts closely moving into the weekend.
Model guidance indicates that an upper-level low is likely to move into the Southern Plains by Wednesday next week. Deep Gulf moisture will spread into the Southern Plains ahead of this low, leading to the potential for heavy rainfall. There remains some disagreement in timing and placement of the upper-level low, and thus the heavy rainfall. While it is too early to know exact amounts of rainfall, the latest data suggest that the primary threat towards the middle of next week would likely be heavy rainfall and flooding rather than severe thunderstorms. However, severe weather can rarely be ruled out with a springtime storm system. We will continue to refine the forecast details of this event over the coming days.
We will host the LAST SKYWARN class of the year this Monday, March 27th, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Somervell County Fire Department in Glen Rose, Texas. You do NOT have to be a resident of Somervell County to attend. Classes are FREE with no registration required. If you want to become a SKYWARN spotter and do your part to help the NWS Fort Worth and other local agencies and jurisdictions during severe weather, you'll definitely want to attend.
