-- Pattern change for the rest of the week
-- Cooler temperatures and chances of precipitation through the weekend
Deep upper level trough that has been producing heavy rain and severe weather in TX through the week, will cut-off and slowly drift across our region through the weekend. With enhanced lift and a cool core aloft will allow for showers and thunderstorms to develop starting Thursday. A cool front will then proceed through early Friday morning bringing temperatures down to more seasonable. QPF amounts vary, but not expecting near the intensity experience across the southern plains. Bottom line is temperatures will top off near 79 with heavy cloud cover and thundershowers Thursday with a low around 60 as the cold front approaches. Temperatures will continue to fall with higher precip chances Fri and a high and low of 70/55. Rain should end by Sunday with partly cloudy skies and a high near 70.
