Early Sunday AM March 13th Update – Another Day With Rain Chances

Good early Sunday morning, everyone. As I’m writing this blog late at night, I’m just waiting to see the clock go from 1:59 AM straight to 3 AM as we spring forward. I may lose an hour of sleep or go to bed right after I finish writing this blog, but it’ll be nice to see the sun stay out a longer during the evening hours! We may struggle to see the sun to start our Sunday morning because of the clouds, areas of light rain/drizzle and fog. At least we’re not dealing with drenching or heavy rain on the radar below early this Sunday morning…

For most of the past week, our weather has been influenced by a stubborn upper-level low that was stuck in parts of Texas and Louisiana. That kept plenty of cloud cover and some rain chances here in our area. That low has pretty much either moved out or fizzled out as it was moving eastward. That finally happened as another upper low, or as Doug appropriately calls it our “kicker” system, works in from the southwest. Back at 1 AM, we had that low centered over the panhandle of Texas…

Even though this low is kicking one system out, this will keep the clouds around for Sunday and the rain chances as well. There could even be some t-storms by Sunday afternoon. Otherwise, as we go through the day, we’ll try to warm up to 68 degrees for afternoon highs…

Once we get past any lingering rain chances Sunday night, we’ll have a dry and nice day for Monday to get a new work/school week underway. In fact, we’ll keep things mild with highs on Monday planning on going into the lower to middle 70s…

Going through Tuesday and the middle of this week, we’ll have a few cold fronts push through here that could drop our temperatures quite a bit. We should go from highs in the 60s on Tuesday to as cool as the 40s and 50s by Thursday and this weekend. There could be a slight chance for a few showers on Tuesday, but we’ll watch our next bigger system (and our next best shot for rain/snow) try to work in by Friday and Saturday. Have a look at that system below depicted by the GPS probably by next Sunday…

Depending on how that system tracks, how it develops and how temperatures look, there could be a chance for rain and snow by this coming weekend. For all of the details on the long range forecast through the spring and what is to come, Doug has you covered over on headypattern.com

Have a good night and a great Sunday!

LONG RANGE FORECAST IS BELOW BASED OFF THE HEADY PATTERN:

Here is your 7-day forecast:

Remember that you can sign up for WeatherCall by clicking the WeatherCall link at the top of the page. WeatherCall, in our opinion, is the best tool on the market to keep you safe during severe weather.

Also we have our free WEATHER APP that lets you access our forecast, blog, radar and weather alerts. I think it’s a must if you own an Apple or Android phone.

LONG RANGE FORECAST: Based off of the HP(Heady Pattern)

SLIGHT CHANCES:  MEAN IT IS A WEAKER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US SCATTERED SHOWERS OR SNOW SHOWERS. 

IF I DON’T SAY SLIGHT:  THAT MEANS THIS IS A STRONGER SYSTEM THAT WILL GIVE US MUCH BETTER PRECIPITATION CHANCES

March 20th-26th:  Warm with thunderstorm chances to start the week.  Some of these could be on the strong to severe side.  Mild temperatures with showers sticking around into the middle of the week.  Cooling down and dry for the second half of the week.

March 27th- April 2nd:  Mainly a mild week with thunderstorms chances on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
