.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Tuesday Night)...
The latest water vapor satellite loop continues to show the upper
low over west Texas is weakening this afternoon. This trend will
continue overnight as the remnants of this low drift westward.
Rain chances through tonight will diminish and be favored across
western Val Verde county. The focus for convection will shift east
into the Hill Country, portions of the I-35 corridor and coastal
plains on Tuesday. As convection organizes to our north, a weak
frontal boundary will be driven southward during the daytime hours
on Tuesday. Weak convergence along this boundary along with
daytime heating and plenty of moisture should yield isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms. Severe storms are not
anticipated, but gusty winds, lightning and heavy rainfall can be
expected with any thunderstorm. Most activity will be tied
closely to daytime heating, but can`t rule out some overnight
convection given the amount of moisture and low-level boundary.

&&

.LONG TERM (Wednesday through Monday)...
Precipitation chances on Wednesday will continue as the remnant
front/outflow boundary slowly dissipates. For now, we`ll keep rain
chances in the 20-30% range, but this may need to be increased if
the boundary remains stronger than anticipated. The subtropical
ridge axis will expand across the southern plains through the
remainder of the work week into early next week. This will result
in a warming trend for south central Texas. Most areas will
remain dry, except for the coastal plains where some isolated
afternoon convection may develop along the sea breeze.
Temperatures will remain above normal as highs warm into the mid
to upper 90s with overnight lows in the 70s.
