Strong Winds and Critical Fire Weather Conditions Likely over California

Very strong winds with gusts over 60 mph combined with dry humidity values will create an environment conducive to extreme fire danger and explosive fire growth over southern California. Winds are expected to diminish later today and tonight. Read More >

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.
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.
