Short term (tonight through Monday night)...any isolated
convection across the region should quickly dissipate with the
loss of daytime heating. Quiet weather is in store for the early
part of the week as drier air and upper level ridging moves into
the area. Rain chances will remain very low with temperatures at
or slightly below normal for this time of year. Highs will
generally range from the upper 90s near Laredo to lower 90s across
the coastal Bend into Victoria Crossroads. Overnight lows will be
on the mild side as min temperatures hold steady in the middle and upper
70s.

&&

Long term (tuesday through sunday)...breezy onshore flow will
continue through to the middle week as a surface low over northern
Mexico and high pressure over the northeast Gulf keep a tight
pressure gradient over the region. The weak shear axis aloft will
continue to meander over the region as well at the beginning of the
period...but moisture will remain limited. Moisture increases
slightly during the end of the week and over the weekend...but at
the same time center of high pressure ridge finally builds in fully
over the state. Kept with the dry forecast through the period.
Daytime temperatures will be on a gradual warming trend through the
end of the week. By the end of the week heat index values may
briefly exceed 105 degrees during the afternoons...mainly over
portions of the southern coastal Bend.
