Short term...
(today and tonight)

.Elevated fire weather conditions again this afternoon...

As another cold front continues to move south across Texas, expect
gusty winds from the northwest and elevated fire weather conditions
this afternoon. Although winds will be mainly in the 10 to 15 mph
range, afternoon relative humidity will range from the upper teens
to around 20. This will create conditions where any fire may be
difficult to control. Otherwise, look for another beautiful 24 hours
across west central Texas, with highs today close to seasonal
normals and lows tonight from the upper 20s to the mid 30s.

Long term...
(sunday through friday)

With upper level high pressure dominating the western Continental U.S.
Through the long term, our flow aloft will remain northwesterly.
Afternoon temperatures in the lower to upper 60s Sunday will cool
to the upper 50s on Monday in the wake of a cold front Sunday
night. A warmup on Tuesday will see afternoon highs in the 60s
with afternoon highs warming back into the 70s Wednesday through
Friday. Dry conditions will prevail through the period.
