.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 352 AM CST Fri Feb 28 2020/

SHORT TERM...
(Today and Tonight)

Quiet conditions continue across West Central Texas early this
morning. Temperatures have dropped in the low lying sheltered
areas (like Sonora) , with readings in the mid 20s. Meanwhile,
areas feeling the effect of the mixing from the light winds remain
in the upper 40s (Sweetwater). In either case, abundant sunshine
should allow temperatures to rapidly climb this afternoon into the
upper 60s and lower 70s across the area. A little more consistent
southerly wind tonight will keep temperatures a little more mild,
mainly in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

LONG TERM...
(Saturday through Thursday)

Warmer and dry through the weekend, with northwest flow aloft
becoming zonal and stronger. Strong zonal flow will strengthen
the lee trough with gusty south to southwest winds. It will also
allow temperatures to warm into the lower 80s Sunday.

An upper low over Northern Baja California Monday will move east
across the region Tuesday into early Wednesday. A few showers
possible as early as Monday, but rain is likely Monday night into
Tuesday. Some differences remain in the models, especially in the
path the upper low takes across Texas, varying from South to North
Texas. Rainfall amounts are not high in any case, 1/10 to 1/2
inch from west to east.

Monday is a warm day, with highs in the upper 70s, but clouds,
rain and a weak cold front Tuesday will likely keep highs in the
60s. A warming trend into the upper 60s to lower 70s takes place
Wednesday and Thursday.
