Discussion (28 March 2017)

The upper level system and associated boundaries that brought t-storms to the area over the last 24 hours is beginning to push off to our east. This will leave behind dry weather for the rest of the week with warming temperatures. Today, highs in the upper 70s will be likely with temperatures warming into the mid 80s on Thursday. As we head into Friday, expect temperatures to peak out in the low 90s before returning to the mid 80s on Saturday. Well see clouds increase during the day on Saturday as another upper level low develops over the four corners region and moves into Far West Texas. The forecast for precipitation Saturday is a bit tricky as both the GFS and ECWMF push a dryline far east of our region. This is a rare occurrence, but since both models are suggesting it I cannot ignore it. Therefore, a dry forecast remains in place for Saturday but Saturday night into Sunday morning a cold front will move through bringing a much better chance for rain. Additionally, well see much cooler temperatures as well with highs struggling to reach the 70F mark. Some showers may linger into Monday but dry weather will return Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures in the mid 80s through the first half of next week.
