SHORT TERM (Tonight through Sunday Night)...
Latest visible imagery shows widespread low and mid level clouds
across much of south central Texas. Most of the area remains mostly
capped with only shallow development of showers in our southern
counties. Southerly winds should maintain cloudy skies overnight and
into tomorrow morning. Morning cloud cover should keep morning lows
mild in the upper 50s in the Hill Country and low 60s elsewhere. A
slight warm up on Sunday ahead of an approaching cold front, where
highs will be in the upper 70s to low 80s.

LONG TERM (Monday through Saturday)...
A weak cold front will pass through the area Monday morning. Frontal
passage should be mostly dry with only a slight mention of showers in
our northeast counties. By Tuesday, slight cooling behind the front
will bring temperatures back down to near normal, mid to upper 70s.
Most of the area should clear behind the front, with the exception of
the Rio Grande Plains, where residual moisture will keep the area
mostly cloudy and a slight chance for showers Tuesday and Wednesday.
An approaching system from the west begins to influence the area
beginning Friday. While models differ on timing and placement of
associated features, have kept POPs relatively low.
