.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 322 PM CST Tue Feb 21 2017/

SHORT TERM (Tonight through Wednesday Night)...
Weak high pressure behind a cold front will remain intact across
south central Texas tonight. The high pressure will lead to light
winds and with clear skies tonight, low temperatures will drop in to
the mid 40s to lower 50s. On Wednesday, surface high pressure moves
east of the region allowing south and southwesterly winds to develop
in the afternoon. With sunny skies in store, afternoon highs will
range from near 90 along the Rio Grande to near 80 in the coastal
plains.

LONG TERM (Thursday through Tuesday)...
Warm and dry weather continues into the end of the work week with the
warmest day of the forecast period expected on Thursday. We should
see lower 90s along the Rio Grande with mid 80s in the coastal
plains. On Friday, a dry, Pacific cold front moves through and brings
a slightly cooler, but much drier air mass to the region. We could
see some elevated to near critical fire weather conditions behind the
front, with the greatest area of concern over Val Verde county and
adjacent areas of the southern Edwards Plateau. Cooler temperatures
are in store for Saturday as surface high pressure continues to build
in from the north. Temperatures will then slowly warm through the
end of the forecast period. We will continue to mention a low chance
for precipitation for areas east of Highway 83 early next week as an
upper level trough moves into the southern U.S. plains.
