Heavy Rain Possible Thurs. Night - Fri. Morning
Wednesday, December 17th, 2014
Scattered showers and storms brought 1/10" of rain to Camp Mabry Wednesday, but there's the possibility of picking 1 to 2" of additional rain Thursday night into Friday morning. That's the focus for possible showers and storms as a cold front pushes through. I don't expect severe storms, but there could be some storms with brief heavy rain, gusty winds and hail. We'll dry out for the weekend through Christmas week.
Temperatures will continue their back and forth swings. Wednesday's high of 52 was the coldest since 50 on December 2nd! Wednesday was also the first day of below average temps in 2 weeks! Now we swing the other way on Thursday with the chance of partial afternoon sunshine which could send temps soaring into the mid to upper 60s! But the cold front that brings our dose of heavy rain will also pull in colder air. Friday I'm forecasting a high of 60 - but some spots may only reach upper 50s. And how 'bout another swing to near 70? That's possible Monday ahead of another cold front. After a couple seasonable days Tuesday and Christmas Eve Wednesday - I still think we could surge to 70 degrees Christmas Day Thursday!
We won't have a White Christmas and it's not likely we'll have a Wet Christmas either...but a Warm Christmas could make it memorable. Side note: Our latest 90-degree high was on Christmas Day 1953!!
The Winter Solstice is Sunday at 5:03 PM. We might have some winter chill by the weekend after Christmas...stay tuned!
