We asked the question on our twitter account (@KBTXWeather) over this past weekend...but what is considered "hot" in your book? 90°? 100°? Somewhere in between? Well, if it has been too hot and too muggy for you already this year -- it looks like we'll be able to take care of you in the upcoming days.
Cold front slides in late Thursday
After dominant high pressure for the past week to week and a half, a cold front is going to manage to slip in from the north and through the Brazos Valley starting late Thursday afternoon (post-3pm time frame).
Along and ahead of this front, a few showers and scattered thunderstorms will be possible -- starting late afternoon and lingering into the evening and overnight hours. While there is a chance of rain, it won't be an overwhelming chance...we'll kick in a 30% to 40% shot area wide. That being said, if one or two of those storms can really get fired up, there will be a small chance that it could become strong to severe with large hail and brief, damaging winds being of the main concern. The Storm Prediction Center has had a "SLIGHT RISK" for severe thunderstorms, in effect for tomorrow, since Tuesday morning.
PinPoint Forecast for Thursday Morning Through Thursday Evening
Our in house, PinPoint Forecast model is holding on close to our forecast of just a few, scattered storms along the cold front late in the forecast period on Thursday. That being said, it is also predicting that some of tonight's thunderstorm activity in North Texas may try to stay alive long enough to make it into our northern counties between 6am and 9am before falling apart.
"Cooler" Weather Moves in For the 1st of June
We say cooler for a lack of better words, at this time of the year. As northerly winds take over by Friday morning, lows will fall into the upper 60s for both Friday and Saturday morning, followed by highs in the mid-to-upper 80s on Friday afternoon. That "cool-down" will be short lived, however, as highs creep right back up into the lower 90s by Saturday.
That being said, you'll notice a difference in that humidity -- as in it will be low to non-existent as drier air sits overhead for 24 to 48 hours. Enjoy it while you can -- because we all know that cold fronts usually become extinct around these parts this time of the year and won't typically migrate back for several months to come.
