.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 406 AM CST Wed Feb 22 2017/

SHORT TERM (Today through Thursday)...
Plenty sunshine and warming temperatures are expected for the next
few days. Today`s highs will be in the upper 80s most places with
lower 90s across the southwest counties of South-Central Texas. This
warming trend comes as a dry-line moves across the area and boundary
layer winds move from the southwest and west directions. In
addition, an upper level short-wave ridge is located across the area.

Similar dry and warm weather conditions are expected on Thursday
with more places reaching the lower 90s as dry-line pushes farther to
the east with southwest winds dominating the boundary layer.

LONG TERM (Thursday Night through Tuesday)...
A dry-cold front is forecast for Friday, cooling daytime temperatures
into the mid 70s across the Hill Country and lower 80s along and east
of Interstate 35. A shallow cool airmass will dominate the first part
of the weekend with highs only in the mid 60s to mid 70s on Saturday.
Southerly wind flow returns and brings back Gulf moisture on Sunday
continuing into Monday of next week. There is a chance for
drizzle/light rain-showers Monday morning as a mid level short-wave
disturbance moves across the area. May be some lingering light-
showers across the far east counties Monday afternoon where higher
humidity values are expected to reside.

Next chance for widespread showers comes Tuesday night into
Wednesday morning as a Pacific cold front pushes across the area.
