SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Monday)

Look for cooler temperatures to continue tonight, with a warming
trend beginning tomorrow. Gusty winds from the west and northwest
will continue for a few more hours this afternoon. The wind
advisory for the Big Country expires at 7 PM CDT this evening.
Overnight, winds will become light, at 10 mph or less. Clear skies
tonight will again help radiational cooling drop lows just before
sunrise to the mid 40s. Highs tomorrow will again be in the 80s,
with lots of sunshine and winds mainly from the southwest and west
adding some downslope warming.

LONG TERM...
(Monday Night through Sunday)

Much warmer morning lows are expected Monday with temperatures in
the mid 50s. An upper trough axis extending from the Big Bend
region northeast into the Central Plains early Wednesday will push
the next cold front through the forecast area later in the day as
it moves eastward. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will be
possible over most of the area during the day on Wednesday with
the best chance of development over the southeastern CWA in an
area of better low level moisture. Precipitation chances should
end from west to east by Wednesday evening. Afternoon highs on
Tuesday will be in the upper 80s to around 90. With good cloud
cover, a southward moving cold front and associated rainfall,
afternoon highs on Wednesday will range from the low to mid 70s
across the northern CWA with lower 80s across the southern half of
the area.

The forecast will be dry through the remainder of the extended
with post-frontal highs on Thursday in the 70s, warming into the
upper 70s to the lower 80s on Friday. Saturday and Sunday will see
highs mid 80s. Pre-frontal lows on Wednesday morning will be in
the 60s with Thursday morning lows in the lower 50s and Friday
morning lows in the upper 40s. By this weekend, morning lows will
warm back into the mid 50s.
