HOUSTON – A disturbance will produce numerous showers and storms over the Southern Plains on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The National Weather Service in Fort Worth and in Austin/San Antonio said a cold front and upper-level disturbance will bring showers and isolated thunderstorms Wednesday into Thursday morning. Locally heavy rains are possible.
As much as 1 to 2 inches of rain is predicted to fall across a large chunk of Texas. Severe weather is unlikely, but a strong storm or two may occur, the NWS said.
Flash flooding could be a problem for southeast Texas on Wednesday, especially around the Houston metro area. Chilly temperatures are expected on Thursday due to breezy and gusty northerly winds and lingering cloudiness, NWS said.
Temperatures will fall in the wake of the frontal passage on Wednesday. Rain chances decline Thursday morning, and a warming trend is expected this weekend.
