.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 210 AM CST Tue Jan 26 2021/

SHORT TERM (Today through Wednesday)...
Surface ridging across the area today will keep the area fairly
quiet with winds shifting from northerly to east southeasterly this
evening. Temperatures today will be above normal with highs in the
70s, however the air will be noticeably drier and more pleasant.
Meanwhile, another Pacific front moves through the area tonight.
This front will have little moisture to work with as the
southeasterly winds have not had enough time to usher in from the
GOM, and the forecast remains dry. This second shot of cooler air
will bring temperatures back closer to normal. Winds behind the
front will be gusty out of the north on wednesday.

LONG TERM (Wednesday Night through Monday)...
Cold advection leads to below normal temperatures for Wednesday night
into Thursday. A freeze is expected in much of the Hill Country and
possibly a few low lying areas along the Escarpment sunrise Thursday.
Southerly winds return Thursday out west and Friday all areas along
with ridging aloft. A warming trend with increasing humidity can be
expected Friday into Saturday.

A shortwave trough moves across the Central Plains on Saturday with
little or no upward forcing this far south, however it drags a weak
surface boundary across our area that may provide the forcing for a
few sprinkles or very light showers with measurable rainfall hard to
come by. Although a cold front moves across our area Saturday night
into early Sunday, downsloping northwesterly flow keeps temperatures
above normal on Sunday. Southeasterly flow returning Monday maintains
the above normal temperatures.
