SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Tuesday)

A dry cold front will move through all of West Central Texas through
this evening. The surface pressure gradient will remain tight
tonight and Tuesday. This will result in north winds of 5 to 15
mph tonight. The mixed airmass should hold morning lows in the
mid to upper 40s. As the surface pressure gradient remains tight
through early Tuesday afternoon, expect north winds of 15 to 25
mph on tomorrow before diminishing by late afternoon. Expect
afternoon highs to climb to near 70 across the region.

LONG TERM...
(Tuesday night through Monday)

Surface high pressure builds into the area on Tuesday night. Ideal
radiational cooling conditions will allow for temperatures to
fall into the lower 40s and possibly even the upper 30s in lower
lying areas. Temperatures warm into the mid to upper 70s on
Wednesday as the surface high pressure moves off to the east. Even
warmer conditions are expected on Thursday with highs soaring
into the mid 80s ahead of the next strong cold front. Otherwise,
mostly sunny skies will prevail on both Wednesday and Thursday.

The front is still forecast to sweep across west central Texas
Thursday night...clearing the I-10 corridor before daybreak
Friday.The frontal passage will usher in the coolest airmass of
the season thus far. With strong cold air advection in place,
highs will struggle to reach 60 degrees on Friday afternoon. Have
kept a slight chance of PoP`s in the forecast mainly across the
Big Country as the upper level trough swings across north Texas.
High pressure settles into the area on Saturday morning resulting
in the coldest temperatures so far this fall...with lows falling
into the mid 30s and possibly flirting with the freezing mark.
