A Gray St. Patty's Day
A stubborn cloud deck will have the greatest impact on our weather today. Morning satellite trends and surface observations indicate overcast skies well back into Northeast Texas, with little southeastward progression in clearing. Now that a cold front has passed through the area, rain chances have declined but so have the thermometers after a weekend of afternoons in the 70s. Morning readings in the 40s will have trouble rising as cold air continues to advance south via a northwest breeze. Again, that cloud deck's behavior is paramount to today's forecast. Current expectations are for it to hold into the afternoon leading to a high temperature max out in the lower 50s. Should clouds break and a little sun get through with a few hours of daylight left, readings may climb into the upper 50s. Either way, most of today's weather will resemble that of the ‘Old Country!'
