Short term (today through sunday)...
surface high pressure will remain in place across south central Texas
today. Despite plenty of sunshine, high temperatures will average roughly
5 degrees below normal. Surface high pressure begins to migrate
eastward tonight and this will trend out winds to a more east to
southeasterly direction. Clear skies will continue across all areas
this evening, but with some return flow along the Rio Grande, we
could see some low clouds develop towards sunrise Sunday morning.
Southerly flow in the low-levels will remain intact on Sunday and
this will lead to increasing cloud cover and a warming trend for all
areas. We also expect a few showers to develop within the low-level
warm air advection pattern and will mention a 20-30% chance for rain
across most areas.



&&

Long term (sunday night through friday)...
we will continue to see an increase in moisture along with a low
chance for showers early next week. Rain chances will be favored
primarily for areas along and east of I-35. We can't completely rule
out the chance for some thunderstorms as well and have included a
mention of this in the latest forecast. At this time, rainfall
amounts should remain low, generally 1/4" or less. However, we did
notice some locally higher amounts advertised in the European model (ecmwf) model and
will continue to monitor subsequent model data. Rain chances will end
on Wednesday as a cold front sweeps across the area during the
morning hours. Behind the front, dry weather along with near normal
temperatures can be expected through the remainder of the forecast
period.
