The wet and unsettled pattern we saw Monday and Tuesday came to an end early Wednesday when drier and more stable air spread into the region.  Dry weather is forecast Thursday through Friday.

But another period of unsettled, wet and possibly stormy weather appears to be developing this weekend, and this time the wet pattern is forecast to extend through most of next week.

Forecast solutions call for a series of low pressure troughs to begin moving into Texas Saturday, with additional troughs expected late next week. The atmospheric set up appears favorable to produce several rounds of rain showers and thunderstorms, along with the possibility for severe storms over the upcoming week. The chance for rain and thunderstorms is forecast to begin Saturday afternoon and evening, followed by a daily chance for more rain and storms through late next week.

Forecasts are indicating this is shaping up to be a wet period for Central and South Texas. The National Weather Service’s rainfall forecast, looking out through next Wednesday afternoon, is calling for widespread totals of 2.5-4 inches. And keep in mind, more rain is forecast for next Thursday and Friday.

I’ll pass along more details on the upcoming wet pattern over the next couple of days.
