High Temperatures Forecasted For Texas During Christmas

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Low clouds are seen throughout the Gulf of Mexico on both the Nighttime Microphysics and the Night Fog satellite channels, with high-level clouds advancing towards west Texas from both channels.

Satellites have not identified any clouds over our region, and surface investigations have shown the same findings as satellite observations.

The dew point depression values, on the other hand, are predicted to decline throughout the following few hours, allowing for the patchy fog to form mainly along and east of Interstate 35 as light winds and clear sky combine to provide a favorable radiational cooling scenario.

Following a cold morning with lows in the low to mid-30s over the Hill Country and upper 30s across the rest of the region, as well as some morning fog, a beautiful day is a forecast for Tuesday.

High temperatures will range from the mid-60s in most regions to 70 degrees around the Rio Grande. Expect mostly bright skies throughout the day, with a few high clouds moving through from time to time.

After some clouds and patchy fog over certain areas in the morning, Wednesday looks to be another beautiful day in the forecast.

A warming trend is on the way, with highs predicted to reach the 70s throughout the region and a southerly flow projected to dominate the majority of the area.

For this prediction, the National Bureau of Meteorology has raised anticipated high temperatures into the low 80s for Christmas Eve and into the mid-80s for Christmas Day.

While yesterday's AFD delved a little more into the climatology of Christmas Day temperatures, today's AFD looks at the possibility of new records.

The records for the 24th and 25th of December are detailed in further depth in the climate section below. According to the current projection, the temperature record for Christmas Eve is within 1 to 3 degrees of being broken.
