A Brief Break

Hope you enjoyed today's cool sunshine, because more rapid changes are on the way.  Here's a look at a forecast projection showing how fast rain and clouds return tomorrow:

Don't leave home without your umbrella as showers are quite likely especially during the afternoon.  Then, we'll see a stronger cold front push through here with the threat of severe weather Thursday morning.  This depiction of the storm threat indicates that while the highest threat Thursday should be east of Houston, we could still see some rough storms:

The main threats are high wind, and isolated tornadoes, not unlike Monday's small tornado in Shepherd.  It now looks that after the storm Thursday, we may not completely clear out before the weekend.  Clouds and spotty rain hangs around along with a return of cooler temperatures.  Basically, good old fashioned rodeo weather.  Trail Riders may find it soggy in Memorial Park Friday and you may need the rain gear as well as a jacket for the big rodeo parade Saturday morning.

TONIGHT: Fair skies early with increasing clouds after midnight.  Cool with temperatures falling through the upper 40s and low 50s by morning.  Northeast winds 5-10 mph becoming east by morning..

WEDNESDAY: Cool and overcast for most of the day with occasional periods of light rain developing by afternoon.  Highs may not get past the low 60s.  Steady, cool east wind 10-15 mph.

THURSDAY: Strong to severe thunderstorms in the morning, then remaining cloudy during the afternoon with lingering passing showers.  Temperatures climb to the low 70s as the storms arrive, then drop into the low to mid 60s during the afternoon.  Gusty southerly winds 15-20 mph early with the storms become west to northwest 10-15 mph by afternoon.
