Here we go again!

Today’s sunshine and milder weather was a welcome relief from the ice storm that plagued the County yesterday. Tomorrow should also be a welcome antidote for winter weary Texans, but don’t expect this to last. In fact, if the weather pattern this coming week turns out as expected, we could be looking at freezing precipitation (even snow and sleet) by Tuesday with another major Arctic cold front and upper-level disturbance providing the necessary ingredients for yet another winter storm.

While there may not be enough moisture to provide much precipitation, temperatures both on the ground and in the upper-atmosphere could be cold enough to bring snow and sleet to the County. In any case, freezing temperatures are likely by Tuesday morning along with cloudy skies, windy conditions and a chance of more frozen precipitation.

While many details of this scenario remain to be decided, the broad outline seems fairly certain given the general agreement of most of the weather forecast models. I’ll post additional information as this situation unfolds.
