Short term...

Currently, westerly winds are dominating the forecast area with high
clouds mainly southwest of a Lubbock, to Waco, to Beaumont line.
Expect high clouds to temper afternoon highs slightly, though
temperatures will still be well above normal.

Tonight, mostly clear skies and light west winds will allow
radiational cooling to prevail across the forecast area. Expect
overnight lows mainly in the upper 30s to low 40s.

An upper level high pressure system, currently over The Four Corners
area, will continue to migrate east through Tuesday. With mostly
sunny skies, and high pressure building into west central Texas,
expect temperatures to warm into the mid and upper 70s on Tuesday. A
few stations may even see the Mercury reach as high as 80 degrees.


Long term...
one more warm day is expected on Wednesday with highs in the upper
70s to near 80 degrees, before the next cold front and upper
level trough head toward the area. An upper trough off the Southern
California coast on Thursday will begin to head eastward, as a
cold front heads south into West Texas. Highs on Thursday will be
cooler...but not significantly cooler with highs in the 60s. Rain
chances will increase starting Friday and continuing into the
weekend as the upper tough moves east and stalls over northern
Mexico. Best chance of rain will be Friday night into
Saturday...with amounts over 3/4 inch possible. Expecting
temperatures to remain above freezing with lingering rain chances
Saturday night and early Sunday. Models differ beyond the weekend,
with GFS showing another round of rain possible starting Tuesday
of next week.
