.SHORT TERM (Today through Friday)...
Clear skies and light east/northeast winds prevail across South-
Central Texas overnight. With dry air remaining in place, the light
winds have allowed temperatures to fall into the 50s and 60s at the
present hour. Low temperatures by morning should be in the 50s
across most locations. Mostly clear skies will continue through the
short-term period with only some passing high clouds expected late
this evening and tonight. Highs today will top out in the middle 80s
to near 90 degrees across the area. With some high clouds tonight,
lows should remain cool, but be about 3-5 degrees warmer than this
morning. Southerly flow is expected to return to the entire area on
Friday. Speeds should be breezy, in the 12 to 20 mph range. With the
return of warm-air advection, highs Friday will be in the upper 80s
to lower 90s across the region.

.LONG TERM (Friday Night through Wednesday)...
To southerly to southeasterly winds will continue Friday night
pumping warm, moist air back into South Central Texas. Temperatures
will increase over the weekend. A dryline will move across our CWA
Sunday and this may generate isolated showers and thunderstorms
during the afternoon and evening over the northeast counties. Monday
a cold front will drop down through Central Texas and bring an
increasing chance for convection. The front will move through our CWA
and stall across South Texas. Models show an extended period of
active weather from Monday afternoon through Wednesday. Convection
will be diurnally driven with more activity during the afternoons and
evenings. There are signals that there could be locally heavy
rainfall, but timing and location are not consistent between models.
At this point just be aware that the forecast could become wetter
toward the middle of next week.
