…Annnnnd we’re back to winter…

April 14, 2014 Off By Brian

After a weekend in the 70s, it is now in the upper 30s/low 40s and snowing. *Hopefully*, this will be our last snowfall until like November. The GFS does show us getting one more snow event, but it’s at 300 hours out, so I’m not putting too much stock into that forecast.

For the rest of this week, we should see high temperatures in the 50s, excluding tomorrow which should stay in the 40s. The next real weather event will come Thursday night into Friday, as some rain moves through the area.

I ended up not going storm chasing on Saturday. Luckily, there were zero tornado reports, so it looks like I didn’t miss much. Ironically, there was a tornado report on Sunday near the area I was in on Saturday.

Looking ahead for severe weather, it looks like the southeast/extreme southern Texas may get some this coming weekend. A short wave trough does approach our area on Wednesday, however neither the NAM nor the GFS show any storms firing up as a result of it. If we are lucky, we may get a few rumbles of thunder with the showers that move through Thursday night/Friday.
