We’re off to the Metroplex.
At 653PM, CT, Dallas was reporting partly cloudy skies with a temperature of 36 degrees. Dallas has been just as affected by the cold air mass over the center of the country as anyone else, however, their position at the southwestern flank of the feature meant that flow was beginning to turn around, and a southerly breeze was being noted across northeastern Texas.
The surface ridge will begin to sink to the southeast, ending the southerly flow and initiating an easterly flow over Texas. This will transport more moisture to the southern third of Texas, and will generate a few showers and a lot of clouds. Aloft, the stronger jet trough will be moving northeast and away from the southern Plains, while a weak wave will be developing over the southern Rockies, moving into west Texas. It will emerge by the end of the day Saturday, and will turn flow to become southerly, tapping into the new found moisture over southern Texas. The result will be the threat for some light rain and overcast skies arriving before midnight.

What the hell? Weatherbug is either really glitchy, or they know something we don’t know. That’s real. They were forecasting the 60s for highs and upper 40s for lows. That’s so, so strange. You’re off the hook, WeatherNation, we won’t talk about your precip forecast for tomorrow! I don’t know what else to say, but here is the satellite for the region. A few streamers across Texas.
