We’re seeing better chance of thunderstorms as a upper air low pressure area over the northern Mexico moves eastward through Texas as it weakens. This mid week round of rain showers and thunderstorms will produce upwards of 1/4 to 1/2 inch of rain. Rain chances will decrease by later tonight with a mostly sunny sky and warmer temperatures returning Thursday.

A stronger cold front will cross the area on Friday by midday into early afternoon with relatively slim rain chances Friday.. Friday night and into and through our upcoming weekend as a Cooler than average and wet overrunning weather pattern becomes established across our area.

Regarding my forecast, my local forecast confidence: My forecast confidence is high today and tonight with precipitation timing and amounts still bbeing a little uncertain. My confidence goes back to very high tomorrow before falling back to medium to high for Friday and through next weekend with the associated cold front and forecast overrunning pattern.
