SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Saturday)

Quiet weather expected the next 24 hours. The cold front that moved
through earlier today is now well south of the area this afternoon.
Wind speeds are starting to diminish across the area as the pressure
gradient continues to weaken. Surface high pressure will move in
from the north tonight and Saturday, keeping temperatures on the
cool side. For tonight, temperatures will be rather cold, with lows
dropping into the lower and middle 30s by daybreak Saturday.
Although a hard freeze is not expected, temperatures across the Big
Country and outlying areas elsewhere will see temperatures drop to
around the freezing mark just before sunrise.

Sunny and pleasant conditions will prevail for Saturday, with light
winds and afternoon highs ranging from the mid and upper 50s north,
to the lower 60s south.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday night through Friday)

Temperatures will quickly warm up Sunday, with gusty south to
southwest winds, as a lee trough develops in strong zonal flow
aloft. A surface trough will move across North Texas Sunday night.
The GFS and EC bring some scattered showers and perhaps a
thunderstorm, along and southeast of an Ozona...San
Angelo...Brownwood line Sunday night. However rain potential is
low with lack of upper support, and low level moisture moisture
will have a short window to return.

Warm into Tuesday with southernly winds. A cold front will move
through Tuesday night, bringing temperatures down closer to
seasonal normals in the 60s, from Wednesday into Friday. No rain
expected after Sunday night with a dry atmosphere.
