StormTracker 9 Forecast with Meteorologist Max Crawford

Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 77°
  • 47°

Winds have really picked up this afternoon across West Texas.  We can expect that to continue into the evening, calming down a bit in the overnight hours.  A weak cold front will come through overnight and bring us slightly cooler temperatures for Thursday and Friday.  We're looking to get enough gulf moisture into the area before a potent system looms closer, giving us a chance for some strong to potentially severe storms this weekend, especially on Saturday.  As of right now, it looks like things should be all clear by Easter Sunday.  Take extra care if traveling this weekend.

Wednesday Night: Partly cloudy and seasonal. Low near 50. Winds S at 15-20 mph.

Thursday: Sunny, breezy, and slightly cooler. High near 75. Winds S becoming N at 10-15 mph.

Thursday Night:  Partly cloudy.  Low near 53.  Winds N/NE 10-15 mph.
