This morning's very mild start will have a very breezy finish. Currently the entire state is under a Wind Advisory. This precedes the large storm system that's brewing at this moment in Texas and slowly working it's way in our direction. Also associated with that system is a 'precautionary' flash flood watch for the state as well. Estimates from the system shows rainfall reaching up to 2.5 to 3"; expect highs in the mid 80s for this first day of spring. Winds SE 20-30 mph.
Tonight expect windy conditions with a meager 20% chance of rain/ T-storms during the overnight period. Temps will drop only into the 60s; so we will have the energy in place to fuel these storms on the way. Anticipate it staying breezy as well, winds will push form the southeast at 15-20 mph., and gusts up to 25 mph.
Tomorrow the chances of showers go on the increase, and this is when the flash flood watches are likely to be upgraded to flash flood warnings (meaning flooding is actually occurring). Highs will be in the mid 70s and look for the rain to stick around all day and all night. Thursday is likely to be a washout as well with flooding a main concern along with very active winds.
