Continued Warming Trend And High Pollen Count

Choo! The pollen count is high through the weekend and into the next week, so find the tissues and allergy medication.

Many of us want to go outside because the temperatures are above average, but pollen from juniper, elm, and ash trees is also present. In fact, it might take until Wednesday of the next week for the pollen count to leave the high category.

This week’s warming trend persists through the weekend and into the following week.

With a high temperature of 73° today, which is 10° over average, it is the 18th day this month that our daily high has exceeded the February average for that particular date.

Our high temperatures will increase into the mid-70s to mid-80s, making it a great weekend to visit a zoo or botanical garden! The weather calls for more sunshine, but if you plan to play golf or go for an outdoor run on Sunday, you should expect to feel a little bit of a breeze.

Still, we’re not done yet! It’s Monday again, and it might be the warmest day of the year thus far!

Both Monday and Tuesday will see temperatures close to record highs due to high pressure in the upper atmosphere. We will warm to 89° on Monday and 87° on Tuesday thanks to clear sky and surface winds from the southwest. Tuesday looks to be a new record high, while Monday’s 89° would be only one degree shy of tying the record of 90°.

Next, a strong front is expected to go through late Tuesday into early Wednesday morning, bringing with it a significant cooldown. We’re going to have a significant shift in temperature as the front moves across North Texas, and Wednesday afternoon highs in the 50s will be difficult to achieve. There’s a slight risk of rain along with a significant drop in temperature, but nothing heavy. There’s a chance that some storms in Northeast Texas late Tuesday could become severe, but for the time being, the greater threat is farther northeast.

As moisture passes over the current cooler air, further rain is expected on Thursday and Friday. With lows in the 40s in the morning and highs only in the low 60s on Thursday, there will be an increase of precipitation to about 40%. We’ll be seeing a severe weather shift in a few days, going from late spring temperatures to early March ones. Keep in mind that the normal high temperature on March 1st is 64 degrees, so get some Kleenex and enjoy the beautiful weather before we drop back to “average” by the end of next week.
