Severe weather is breaking out along a squall line in north-central Texas this afternoon. The good news is an upper-level cap (a layer of warm air aloft) may keep the severe weather north of Galveston County. This is particularly true along the coast, where cool, foggy conditions may keep temperatures below the threshold needed to “break the cap”. Still, I will be watching the radar closely this evening.
Meanwhile, cooler, drier air flowing in behind a spring cold front may set the stage for near ideal conditions over the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures ranging from morning lows in the mid to upper-50s and highs in the 70s. It should seem like spring for sure through Sunday.
