.SHORT TERM (Today through Thursday)...
Light northerly winds continue to prevail across South-Central Texas
behind yesterday`s cold front. In addition to the cool breeze,
clear skies are also left in its wake allowing temperatures to fall
into the 50s and 60s across the region. The light northeast/east
winds will continue for the duration of the short-term forecast as
gulf flow remains shut off with northwest flow aloft remaining in
place across the Central Plains. Highs today will top out in the 79-
89 degree range across the area with the higher temperatures in the
Rio Grande Plains. These temperatures are at or just below our new
1991-2020 climate normals. For tonight, mostly clear skies will lead
to another night in the 50s to lower 60s. Clear skies will continue
Thursday with highs a bit warmer, into the middle 80s to lower 90s.

.LONG TERM (Thursday Night through Tuesday)...
An upper level ridge will move over the southern plains Thursday
night and Friday. At the surface high pressure will move across North
Texas turning the winds from the east to the southeast by Saturday
morning. The result will be dry weather with moderate temperatures.
Low temperatures will warm each morning while highs will be steady
through Saturday. Southerly to southeasterly flow will bring warmer
air for Sunday and Monday. Monday a dryline will move in from West
Texas bringing a chance for showers and thunderstorms mainly over the
eastern half of the area. Models are not in good agreement on this
system and the GFS shows strong convection moving across our CWA
from west to east. The National Blend of Models has a much weaker
signal with only slight to low chance POPs. We will lean toward the
blend at this time and see how things develop over time. Tuesday a
cold front will drop down through North Texas and there may be
sufficient lift ahead of the front to produce isolated convection
early in the day. There will be better chances during the afternoon
and evening as the front gets closer.
