Today we take a trip to far Eastern Texas, almost right on the Gulf Coast. Spring Break Road Trip Anybody? Wooooo!
At 1053pm CDT, the temperature at Beaumont, TX was 63 degrees under fair skies. High pressure is weakening over the Western Gulf Coast, allowing moisture along the Rio Grande to start working its way northward slowly. Clouds will be on the increase Tuesday, but should remain dry and very nice with temps approaching 80. An area of low pressure starts to develop over North Texas early Wednesday and shifts towards eastern OK/western AR. Scattered showers and some isolated thunderstorms are expected to develop over the Arklatex region as the Gulf fully opens up its bounty of moisture. It shouldn’t be any huge deluges of rain, but a hit from one of these storms could ruin a nice afternoon outing.
