The weather on Christmas morning is looking to be anything but merry and bright. A very strong cold front will push through the area bringing in the the potential for severe weather and much cooler temperatures.
A stalled out frontal boundary, sitting over Houston, will retrograde and move over the Brazos Valley Christmas Eve night. This will allow for warm air and moisture to build south of that line enabling a very unstable environment.
Early Christmas morning a cold front will start to approach the area allowing for a slight chance of severe weather. This system has the potential to generate hail, high winds, heavy rain and possibly a tornado. The greatest threat for severe weather will be in between 4AM and 10AM.
The worst of the weather should be cleared out of the area by the lunch hour leaving behind much cooler temps, blustery winds, and a possible scattered shower or two.
The cold front will allow our temperatures to drop down into the 20s Christmas Night. On Wednesday our highs will struggle to reach the upper 40s.
Although its not a white Christmas, I know many people have been dreaming of more rain. Merry Christmas!
