Good Tuesday morning to you. It will be a warm last day of March with a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures will go from the 50s this morning, to 70s and 80s for the afternoon and thanks to the presence of dryline, we can expect scattered thunderstorms, with the chance for hail and straight-line winds in the southeastern Texas Panhandle. Of course, lightning will come with every storm so remember if you can hear thunder, you can be struck by lightning and you need to head indoors. The tornado threat is extremely low today.
Tomorrow brings another round of hot weather and thunderstorms as we heat up to near 90 degrees. The eastern Texas Panhandle will get the best shot at rain along with hail and strong storm winds in the afternoon.
By Good Friday, a dry cold front comes in to put temperatures closer to average, with highs in the 60s and 70s, but the cool down is short-lived. We'll get back to 70s and 80s for Easter Sunday.
Have a great day and enjoy the warm conditions.
