224 PM CST Sat Feb 16 2019

.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Sunday Night)...
This mornings cold frontal passage has left the area with an
interesting temperature gradient. Currently, for the counties in the
northeastern section area are seeing temperatures in the 40s, while
our furthest western county of Val Verde is already up to 81 degrees.
The cold air advection will stay limited to the northeast. This
evening, winds turn back to southeasterly and keep temperatures mild
overnight before another cold front passes through early tomorrow
morning. Most models showing frontal passage as dry until reaching
coastal region. The passage of this Pacific front will lower RHs into
the teens for Rio Grande Plains. These low RHs and increased winds
from FROPA will bring Elevated Fire Weather for areas west of I-35
Sunday afternoon.

&&

.LONG TERM (Monday through Saturday)...
Cooler airmass from Sunday`s frontal passage will set up another wet
pattern as isentropic ascent keeps the area cloudy and damp with
chances for rain from Tuesday through Wednesday. Temperatures also
remain cooler through Thursday. Thursday, another approaching system
brings more chances for showers, mostly for eastern counties. By
Friday, temperatures recover to near normal.
