SHORT TERM (Tonight through Saturday Night)...
Clear skies are prevailing across the area with northwest winds and
temperatures in the 70s to lower 80s across the region. Humidity
values are currently in the single digits to lower teens across much
of the area and a Red Flag Warning will continue for the western
portions of the CWA until 5 PM this afternoon. Winds are currently in
the 10 to 20 MPH range but will begin to weaken shortly as the
boundary layer begins to cool. Northerly winds will continue through
tomorrow and low temperatures tonight will bottom out in the middle
30s to lower 40s given the dry air in place and continued northerly
flow. Highs tomorrow will only be in the 60s with the north winds and
temperatures will feel much cooler around the area. South winds will
return to the area by Sunday morning and lows will be in the 40s
areawide.

LONG TERM (Sunday through Friday)...
A weak shortwave will approach the region on Sunday and there will
be a chance of showers across mainly the eastern half of the area
with a slightly higher chance Sunday night. Lift will continue into
Monday and slight chance PoPs should continue through Monday
afternoon. A weak Pacific front will approach the region on Tuesday
and could bring with it another low chance of showers to the eastern
areas once again. A large trough is expected to push into the Central
Plains by mid-week and this feature will allow a stronger cold front
to push south into Texas Wednesday morning. Temperatures ahead of
the front will reach the 80s once again on Monday and Tuesday.
Temperatures behind the front on Thursday and Friday will be in the
60s and 70s. A weak shortwave could bring some small chances of rain
