Cloudy, gloomy, and cold with rain showers will be Wednesday's theme, but a few strong thunderstorms may impact our southern counties.
A cold front is to blame for today's high temperatures dropping near thirty degrees below the norm. It will stall to the south, along I-10, this evening and overnight. If these areas see sunshine, it will make the atmosphere unstable and this will lead to thunderstorm production along the stalled front. Storms may become strong to severe along and south of I-10. The biggest threats with the storms will be large hail, strong winds, and locally heavy rainfall. As far as timing, the strong storms look to start late this evening until after midnight. The potential for flooding will be a concern through the overnight hours since the southern Basin and the lower Trans Pecos have already seen rain.
Rain showers will linger through Thursday and come to a halt on Friday. Temperatures will bounce back into the eighties for the beginning of the weekend.
