PM Update: Mid-winter 'warmth' continues

By Ian Livingston

Chilly nights and mild days before weekend storm

I don't know about everyone else, but I am digging this warmer spell. Tons of sun and light winds, mainly from the south and southwest, have created a rather nice and fairly mild mid-winter day around here. Temperatures ranging from the mid-40s to lower 50s are above normal for this time of year -- the first time we've been able to say that in a while. Tonight's another chilly one with even warmer readings expected tomorrow.

Through Tonight: Partly cloudy and chilly overnight, but not as cold as last night. Temperatures fall to the lower 20s in the coldest spots to the upper 20s in the warmest. Winds are light and from the south or southwest.

Tomorrow (Friday): Mild conditions continue tomorrow and in fact it should be a bit warmer than today. Partly cloudy skies and a light west wind combine to help temperatures rise into the upper 40s and lower 50s. There may be some increase in clouds late.

Lightning data: Increased lightning in extreme south Texas may indicate formation of the storm due to hit us Sunday.

I remember some January's getting into the 70s. 50s ain't warm at all!

Bombo, what does increased lightning say about the coming storm?
