.SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

Quiet weather will continue for west central Texas today and
tonight. Surface high pressure over the southern Plains and Texas
will move southeast into the lower Mississippi Valley later today,
and will have a ridge extension back across south-central Texas
tonight. With sunny skies today and very dry air still in place, a
strong temperature recovery is expected with light winds becoming
south-southeast. Highs this afternoon are expected to be in the
lower to mid 60s.

Skies will be generally clear tonight, but anticipate a variation in
overnight low temperatures. Lows should be in the mid 30s across
most of the Big Country, where south winds will be 5-10 mph.
Stronger radiational cooling is expected across the southern and
east-central parts of our area, closer to the surface ridge axis
where winds will remain light. Going with lows in the mid to upper
20s for the favored low-lying areas.

.LONG TERM...
(Thursday through next Wednesday)

Mild temperatures will continue Thursday and Friday with breezy
south winds developing both days. A weak cold front will approach
from the north on Friday. Compressional warming ahead of the front
and the expansion of the low level thermal ridge across the area
will result in the warmest day this week, with highs in the upper
60s and lower 70s. Low level moisture will be on the increase
Friday and Friday night ahead of the front. Could see a few
showers develop across far southeast counties mainly Friday night.
The aforementioned front will move south across the area on
Saturday. Still looks like a few showers and thunderstorms will be
possible along and ahead of the front on Saturday for areas
roughly east of a Cross Plains to Junction line. Highs on Saturday
will range from 60 degrees north, to the mid and upper 60s across
southern sections.

Northwest flow aloft will prevail Sunday and Monday, becoming
more zonal by Tuesday. Expect dry and mild weather to continue
through the rest of the extended period, with highs in the 60s
and overnight lows in the 30s.
