SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Monday)

Extensive cloud cover is continuing across much of West Central
Texas this afternoon, especially the eastern two thirds of the
region. The cloud cover is forecast to expand west overnight, with
patchy fog and drizzle possible, especially across the eastern half
of the forecast area. Most of the drizzle/fog should dissipate by
mid morning. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
Mostly sunny skies are forecast by late morning or early afternoon
Monday, with afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

LONG TERM...
(Monday Night through Sunday)

Dry and warmer weather will prevail on Tuesday ahead of the
next cold front to affect the area late Tuesday night and
Wednesday. High temperatures Tuesday afternoon should top out
in the upper 80s for most of the area under mostly sunny skies.

The cold front is expected to move across the area Tuesday night
and Wednesday and should clear far southern sections by early
afternoon. Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be
possible along and ahead of the front beginning Tuesday night
across the Big Country and across the remainder of the area on
Wednesday. Temperatures will be considerably cooler behind the
front and with plenty of cloud cover, afternoon highs will range
from the lower to middle 70s across the Big Country, to the lower
80s over far southern counties. Rain chances will linger over
southeast counties on Thursday, otherwise partly cloudy skies
and cool weather will prevail, with highs in the upper 70s.

An upper level ridge will build over the southeast states late
next week into the weekend, with moisture returning. Could see
some diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms Friday through
Sunday, so will maintain low POPs through the period. Expect
daytime highs in the lower 80s, with lows in the 60s.
