Fall Air Mass in Place

A big drop in temperatures thanks to the front
Posted at 1:49 PM, Oct 07, 2019

Rain showers continue to push east with the heaviest rounds in eastern counties. Otherwise, it’s light to moderate scattered rain showers around the 75 corridor. Temperatures have cooled significantly from the start of the weekend. We’re running in the middle 50s for most locations, ~20 degrees cooler than 24 hours ago, and 40+ degrees cooler than just a few days before that.

Rainfall amounts in the last 24 hours have topped out between a trace southeast to near or over 4 inches for south central counties. Rain is slated to move out later in the evening for everyone, leaving a cooler and drier air mass in place. Clouds will clear overnight for most. Some patchy morning fog possible through Tuesday thanks to the saturated soils. Things more or less calm down through the middle of the week thanks to higher pressure. A few isolated rain showers are possible each afternoon, but the chances remain low. Better rain chances arrive Saturday when the next cold front arrives. We’re not expecting as much rain with this line, but we will continue to cool temperatures down.
