Continued colder than normal temperatures through today and Friday due to another reinforcing blast of cold air this afternoon. We are seeing 10-12 degrees below normal for this time of year. San Augustine will reach the mid 40's before the front arrives. It is a dry front with no moisture. The winds will become Northerly at rather blustery 10-15 mph. 28 degrees tonight and Friday evening.
Several fronts will drop in to our area through mid week next week. The one on Tuesday bears watching as it will have 70+ degree temps providing a stage forT-storms across the area on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will warm into the 60's this week end and do expect our rain chances to increase also. Any winter weather impact will be to the North of the I 30 corridor.
Someone ask me about the moisture in snow...each inch of snow is about 1/4 inch of rain equivalent.
Speaking of snow totals....here is what the NWS totals reflect with reports currently being verified......
- I 30 North 4-7 inches
- I 20 1-3 inches
- I 20 South... a trace to 1 inch in most Louisiana locations except for 7" in Monroe and here in Texas, Hemphill, 4-7 inches. We just missed out....
- Our moisture for the 2 day storm was 1/2 inch with NO real accumulation of snow.
- 2-25-2015 - 39.1 hi 32.8 low wind ave .4 mph with 9 mph gust
- 2-26-2015 - 40.5 so far after a low of 38.2. Winds will be gusty as the front passes us today.
