Heavy rain across the eastern U.S.

Low pressure will weaken some as it heads to the Northeast U.S. tomorrow, but still will be capable of producing areas of heavy rain from the Mid-Atlantic to New England. Severe thunderstorms are possible in the central Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley over the next couple of days. More widespread severe storms are possible in the southern Plains by the end of the week. Read More >

You'll notice that Tuesday morning's temperatures will be a bit warmer than the past few days. You'll also notice that the afternoon highs will be quite a bit warmer. One of the reasons things will warm up is the dry line. Relative Humidity levels will drop to less than 20% in some parts of North and Central Texas, mainly west of US 281. To the east of I-35/35W, the humidity levels will be fairly normal, somewhere in the 40%-60% range. Behind the dry line, temperatures will be near record levels. Ahead of the dry line, temperatures will be a little warmer than usual for late April.
Temperatures will not be as cool tonight as they were the past few nights. Lows will be in the 60s for most locations, with upper 50s possible in a few locations. Breezy south to southwesterly winds of 10 to 15 MPH are forecast. While cloudiness will begin to increase (especially in our southern zones), dry conditions are expected. Average lows for this time of year are in the upper 50s, so temperatures are forecast to be near or slightly above average tonight.
A couple of thunderstorm chances exist this week. The first will be on Wednesday ahead of a cold front that is forecast to move through North and Central TX. The best chances will be east of the I-35 corridor. Should storms breach the cap, they will likely become strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds being the main hazards. The tornado threat appears LOW. The second and more conditional risk for storms will be Friday and Friday afternoon. The chance for rain is less than 20%. If storms develop, large hail and damaging winds are likely.
