Dense Fog Advisory in effect this morning with some good moisture in place. We also have some showers with a few thunderstorms this morning. This activity will continue moving to the northeast bringing some moderate rain at times.
TODAY: A cold front will push through the area, this will provide the lift needed for showers and storms to continue. Some storms may become strong to severe especially east of Lubbock, where large hail and damaging wind may be an issue. Highs will be in the upper 50s west, and 60s for the rest of the area. A strong wind will take over from the southwest 15-25mph with gust to 30mph.
TEXAS: Across the big country a better chance for severe storms with tornadoes and flooding possible. Storm Prediction Center shows the greater risk for the severe weather towards Austin to Houston and up to Dallas. If you know someone traveling back to the area or traveling down state make sure they stay weather aware.
TONIGHT: Low near 37, west-southwest wind will stay breezy 15-25mph. Mostly clear sky with some clouds lingering on the back end of the low pressure system. There might be some light precipitation with the cover too, but it will remain very light.
THURSDAY: Much cooler with the high near 50, mostly sunny sky with the wind backing to 5-15mph in the afternoon.
EXTENDED: Another low pressure system is right on our doorstep. This will bring much colder temperatures that will last into next week. Also, this system will bring a chance for snow for the area. Models are in better agreement that snow chances will start Friday in New Mexico, possibility northwestern counties of the South Plains. Then pushing across the rest of the area overnight and Saturday. There is a chance for a few inches in locations with higher amounts west. This will clear out with a mostly sunny sky to start the New Year.
