.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Friday Night)...
Gusty north winds will continue through the mid-evening hours across
south central Texas. Wind gusts will tend to ease after sunset, but
northerly winds and generally overcast skies will continue. We could
see some decrease in cloud cover after midnight into early Friday
morning for areas generally along and north of a Llano to La Grange
line. Overnight lows will range from near freezing in the Hill
Country and southern Edwards Plateau to the lower 40s along the Rio
Grande and into the coastal plains. Northeast winds continue for
most areas tomorrow. The exception being along the Rio Grande
tomorrow afternoon, where winds will transition to a more
southeasterly direction. Below normal temperatures continue on
Friday with highs generally in the 50s. We do expect some clearing
of skies tomorrow for the Hill Country and areas generally along and
east of the I-35 corridor. Cloudy skies will likely remain intact
farther west along the Rio Grande and southern Edwards Plateau.
Below normal temperatures continue for Friday night with lows near
freezing in the Hill Country to the lower 40s along the Rio Grande.

.LONG TERM (Saturday through Thursday)...
Saturday will be slightly warmer than Friday, with highs in the low
60s. By Saturday night, winds turn back out of the southeast and
increase moisture. These southeasterly winds keep the overnight lows
for Saturday night and Sunday morning mild in the mid 40s to low 50s.
Meanwhile, an upper from the northwest moves into the Plains Sunday.
This upper low drags a cold front across the area Monday with little
to no effect on temperatures. Models still showing a mostly dry
passage with only slight chances for showers along the Coastal
Plains. By Tuesday, another cold front crosses the area bringing a
cooler airmass. High temperatures respond by dropping into the low
60s for both Wednesday and Thursday, with a very chilly Wednesday
night and Thursday morning, with freezing temperatures in the Hill
Country.
