Rain, wet snow ahead as cold persists in region

Highs will rebound into the upper 50s on Monday, some middle/upper 70s on Tuesday and then 65-70° for the rest of the week.

A front that caused chaos in the South is expected to barrel into South Florida on Sunday, elevating the chance of strong winds, thunderstorms and tornadoes. Cooler. Less humid with lows around 50.

Strong thunderstorms could be in the Foothills around 3 p.m. It is possible even in a warning that your exact location may not experience the worst effects, but the presumption for safety at that point should be that they will occur.

The day will be warm and humid, too, with highs in the low 80s and dew points in the mid-60s. The Storm Prediction Center has us at a level 2, which means we could see scattered severe storms. Most of the daylight hours should stay dry with a few spotty showers possible by the afternoon as cloud cover and moisture increases ahead of the system.

We may not be totally done with rain yet though as computer models and radar still indicate some showers over Southeast Texas that will swing through the area by late morning and early afternoon. A brief spin-up tornado can not be ruled out, but the majority of the storm damage will likely occur due to straight line thunderstorm winds.

Rain in the valleys and a light icy mix in the hill swill continue into the night as temperatures hold steady all the way into early Monday morning.

Another cold front will arrive Friday, but it does look capable much rain across the area. Just keeping a slight 20 percent chance for a shower. Remember, our average high temperature for this time of the year is 66°.

The weather system that's moving in will have sizable impacts for those who are looking to travel now through the weekend.
