Most of the showers threatening or impacting the terminals have

SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Friday)

Showers and thunderstorms have developed again this afternoon across
much of West Central Texas. This activity may continue into the
early evening. Thus...will include isolated evening wording in the
tonight period of the forecast. Otherwise, the remainder of the
short term will be dry. Temperatures will continue above seasonal
normals for the next 24 hours. Lows tonight will again range from
around 70 to the mid 70s. Highs tomorrow will be mainly in the 95 to
100 range.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday Night through next Friday)

A hot and dry pattern is expected for our area Sunday through
next Friday, under the influence of an upper level ridge.

Temperatures will creep up Sunday-Monday as heights gradually build
aloft and 850mb temperatures slowly increase. During this time the
ridge will extend from the southwestern states across Texas to along
the Gulf Coast. The ridge is progged to build north and expand east
to encompass much of the southern and central CONUS next week.
Associated subsidence will keep our area dry. Afternoon highs Monday
through at least Thursday are expected to be in the upper 90s to
around 102 degrees across our area, with overnight lows in the 70s.
Winds will be mostly from the south and at slightly higher speeds,
with the surface pressure gradient a bit tighter across our area.
