Clear, Mild and Dry over the Crossroads through Midweek

Wet and Stormy Thursday and Thursday Night

Canadian high pressure over the Lone Star State is bringing clear skies, mild to warm temperatures and very low humidity. Another cool night is anticipated, but as the high moves east on Wednesday a gusty east southeast flow warms things up a bit. Gulf humidity pours into the region Wednesday night, setting the stage for numerous showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. The storms are the result of a powerful upper level disturbance bringing widespread thunderstorms Thursday night, The wetness ends early Friday with a strong cold front. Expect north winds gusting near 30 miles an hour Friday to keep temperatures in the 60s, followed by Saturday morning readings in the 40s. A slow recovery over the weekend will be halted by another front early Monday. Highs will be in the 70s and 80s, except for 60s on Friday. Lows remain in the 40s and 50s.
