National Weather Service SAN ANGELO TX
339 PM CST Sat Dec 10 2016

.SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Sunday)

...Unseasonably warm Sunday...

Low clouds have remained entrenched across southeast counties this
afternoon and will spread north across much of the area this evening
and overnight. South winds have been quite gusty across central and
northern portions of the forecast area, due to a tightening pressure
gradient in response to surface low pressure in the lee of the
Rockies. Low level moisture will increase tonight, with low clouds
spreading north across much of the area. Temperatures will be much
warmer tonight due to cloud cover and the increase in low level
moisture, with overnight lows mainly in the mid and upper 40s.

On Sunday, low clouds will scour out by late morning as surface
winds veer southwest. It will be breezy, with southwest winds
gusting between 20 and 30 mph, except across far southern counties
where winds will be lighter. Southwest winds combined with 850mb
warm advection will push temperatures well above normal for
this time of year, with afternoon highs mainly in the lower 70s.

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

Mild weather will continue into early next week, with highs Monday
and Tuesday generally in the lower 60s in the Big Country to the
mid 60s and lower 70s over the remainder of the CWA. Morning lows
will be in the upper 30s to the lower 40s on Monday with low to
upper 40s Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. A weak dry cold front on
Wednesday will lower afternoon highs into the 50s north of I-20
with pre-frontal highs in the 70s south of I-20. Highs on Thursday
will be in the upper 40s north to the upper 50s south. Morning
lows will dip into the lower 30s north and the lower 40s south on
Thursday before returning to the low to upper 40s Friday morning.

Friday will usher in a mild weekend with mid 60s for afternoon
highs and upper 50s to the upper 60s on Saturday. Morning lows
Friday and Saturday will be in the 40s.
