Rain Returns to North Texas
Below is your video forecast from North Texas Storm Center.
Below is your 7-Day Forecast:
The forecast for Thanksgiving Day across North Texas is looking like it will be a pleasant one. Some people will need a heavier jacket, some will need a light jacket during the day, depending on how sensitive you are to cold temperatures. I will break down the timeline of conditions and what to expect throughout the day.
AT WAKE UP
In the morning as we wake up, or if you're running the Turkey Trot in Dallas, Fort Worth or Arlington, we expect to see temperatures in the 20's across North Texas. Some areas COULD possibly drop down to the mid-to-low 20's, if not possibly teens in some of the out-lying areas.
At midday, we will already see temperatures in the low-to-mid 50's, with mostly sunny skies and a South wind of about 5-10 mph.
IN THE AFTERNOON
In the afternoon, we will see highs reaching the mid-to-upper 50's and mostly sunny skies with a wind out of the South at 5-10 mph.
IN THE EVENING
In the evening, temperatures will begin dropping back down into the high-to-mid 40's.
OVER THE NEXT 7 DAYS
Courtesy: NWS (The National Weather Service) - The wireless industry, The FCC, and FEMA will roll-out the WEA's (Wireless Emergency Alerts) system nationwide this year.
The NWS will start utilizing this by pushing extreme weather warnings over the system in June 2012.
Tornado warnings, flash flood warnings and several other high-end warnings will go direct to wireless users in an affected county automatically if their device is compatible.
This service will be offered for FREE and will NOT count against any cellular data or SMS/Text Messaging plans. WEA does not use location tracking to send alerts. It is just like emergency weather alerts you see on local TV, WEA are broadcast from area cell towers to mobile devices in the area. Every WEA-capable phone within range receives the message, just like every TV shows the emergency weather alert if it is turned on. TV stations, like WEA, don't know exactly who is tuned in.
