.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Wednesday Night)...

Early afternoon winds are already relaxing as compared to the gusty
period of late morning mixing. A flattened upper ridge pattern over
Texas will lead to a cool night tonight with light winds and min
temps in the mid 30s to mid 40s for Wednesday morning. Late
Wednesday, an upper low over the west coast moving toward the
Southern Plains later in the week will begin to increase southerly
winds, especially over the higher terrain of the southern Edwards
Plateau. Intermittent sunshine is expected for daytime Wednesday, so
the daytime warming trend for the highs Wednesday should be limited
to 4-8 degrees over Today. Similarly for Wednesday night, a lot of
the cloud cover that occurs will be elevated, so the warming trend
for the next two morning lows will also only improve about 4-8
degrees. Thus Wednesday and Wednesday night would return us back to
normal temperatures for early March.

.LONG TERM (Thursday through Tuesday)...

A fairly benign weather pattern is expected in the longer term, as
somewhat "northwesterly" flow sets up for South-Central Texas. A
surface high will push eastward over the Deep South on Thursday,
allowing winds to veer back around out of the south/southeast. Expect
increasing clouds on Thursday ahead of the next cold front, which
has slowed a bit, now expected to arrive late morning/early afternoon
on Friday. Winds will be quite breezy behind the front, about 15-25
mph, with gusts to 35+ at times. Elevated to near critical fire
weather conditions will exist for much of the area as relative
humidity falls to 20-30 percent Friday afternoon. Winds should relax
by Saturday morning, with slightly cooler air moving into the region.
The weekend looks to be fairly quiet with temperatures a bit cooler
on Saturday, in the 60s, followed by a bit warmer weather for Sunday,
as temperatures climb into the 70s. Models have started to trend
wetter for early next week, but for now, have opted to keep PoPs less
than 20% until more consistent rain signals develop.
