Some of you have experienced or at least heard of the Tumbleweed. If NOT, the West North West winds may give you the opportunity to view one first hand. It's gonna blow up to 50-60 mph out in West Texas & New Mexico and definitely loosen up more of those pesky tumbleweeds to blow our way!
The NWS has issued an advisory in advance of our weekly rain/storm event as the earlier forecast was just for windy conditions and some rain.....NOW, not only is that turning into "SOME" rain..."SOME" wind...It will NOW looks to be another event similar to last weeks.
I am sure our Thursday Morning NWS Briefing will provide more details....UNTIL then, lots of SUN, High pushing the 80 degree mark and winds at 10 mph from the South for both Wednesday and Thursday....Then, Friday winds strong at 20-25+ mph from the South to load us up with moisture to collide once again with a strong Cold front. That will generate the start of the T-storms by 10 am Friday morning and carry thru the morning of Saturday. A shift to Strong WNW winds just before the front hits.
Yep. you guessed it....colder temps for a couple of days as temps stay in low 60's for highs and low 40's and high 30's for lows.
This cold front will advance into the region Friday with thunderstorms developing along and ahead of the front. Storms should rapidly intensify as the cold front encounters very warm and moist air from the Gulf of Mexico with the atmosphere becoming more unstable Friday noon through Friday evening. The severe threat is likely to continue into ??from??? ?Friday ?noon and ?into ?early Saturday morning before ending from west to east.
Impacts: Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are all expected to be possible.
