After another beautiful day across the area, temperatures will be falling into the upper 40s to lower 50s tonight under fair skies.

The milder temperature trend will continue going into Monday as highs look to top out in the lower 70s with partly cloudy skies in place.

A pretty similar story can be expected for Tuesday with temperatures getting close to 70 degrees under partly cloudy skies once again.

The pattern will quickly turn active heading into mid-week as a pretty impressive upper-level trough approaches from the west.

That will help to induce surface low pressure over Texas on Wednesday which will then be gradually heading towards us.

Some scattered showers will be possible late in the day on Wednesday, but better rain chances arrive overnight Wednesday as that surface feature moves in.

Thunderstorms will be possible with this feature. In fact, we can not rule out the possibility to see at least a few strong to severe storms as well.

Timing again will be Wednesday night going into New Year's Eve Day (Thursday).

It is still too early to tell for certain whether we will indeed see severe weather, but the finer details will be worked out in the coming days, so you'll want to stay with the katc storm team for the very latest.

The big question is how long does the moisture linger around going into Thursday.

Latest guidance today suggest we could be dealing with the shower activity well into New Year's Eve afternoon and perhaps extending into the evening time frame as well.

We are still cautiously optimistic that the bulk of the activity will push out of here in time for midnight, so fingers crossed on that!

We turn colder going into New Year's Day with a start in the 30s and afternoon highs getting into the 50s with dry conditions expected.

Upcoming weekend looks good with no real issues anticipated for now...

Y'all have a great final week of 2020!
