338 PM CDT SAT AUG 27 2016

.SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Sunday)

Most areas over West Central Texas are experiencing some shower
and/or thunderstorm activity during the time of peak heating this
afternoon.  This activity will begin to dissipate as we lose daytime
heating later this afternoon and into this evening. Low to mid level
moisture will remain over the forecast through tomorrow aided by an
upper low spinning over Southeast Texas. We should have a little
better chance of showers and thunderstorms over a wider area
tomorrow accompanied by slightly cooler afternoon temperatures in
the upper 80s to around 90. Morning lows tomorrow will be in the
upper 60s to around 70.

.LONG TERM...
(Monday through Saturday)

Much the same expected through Wednesday as the combination of
afternoon heating...tropical moisture...and remnant outflow
boundaries combine to give us a chance of thunderstorms each
afternoon/evening. Weak steering flow aloft will result in slow
movement of storms and a potential for very localized heavy
rainfall. Looks like a drying trend beginning mid to late week as
an upper level ridge builds back westward into the area. This will
lead to mostly sunny skies and warmer temperatures for the start
of September.
