SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Saturday)

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are currently in our western
counties, and continue to advance to the east this afternoon. Have
gone ahead and updated this afternoon`s grids to account for this
activity. This activity should dissipate after the sun goes down
and heating/instability is lost. However, the speed at which they
die off is questionable at this point, so have also held on to
some overnight PoPs in the event that these storms linger past 7
or 8 o`clock tonight. There are also a few isolated showers and
storms along our eastern border, and we have kept slight chance
PoPs going along our eastern border through tonight as well.

On Saturday, tropical moisture will continue to move into the area
from the east/southeast, so have kept the inherited slight chance
for showers and thunderstorms going tomorrow. Temperatures may be
just a couple degrees cooler tomorrow with added low level moisture
and cloud cover tomorrow afternoon.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday Night through Friday)

An upper level ridge will be centered across the Mid Atlantic this
weekend into the first part of next week, while an upper level low
off the Texas Coast slowly drifts southwest toward South Texas. This
will result in isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms
across West Central Texas each afternoon, with most convection
dissipating by mid to late evening. High temperatures through the
first part of next week will mainly be in the upper 80s to lower
90s, with overnight lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

The aforementioned upper level ridge will build southwest, back
toward Texas, for the middle to latter part of the week. This will
result in warmer temperatures and decreased rain chances. Expect
highs mainly in the mid 90s, with overnight lows in the low to mid
70s.
