Short term...
(tonight and wednesday)

Not much to say in the short term forecast this afternoon. Morning
lows today reached into the upper 40s and lower 50s across most of
the area. Radiational cooling will set up again tonight, and with
dewpoints in the 20s and 30s, it will be another cool night. Wind
speeds may come up just enough to keep temperatures from bottoming
out, but will still remain on the cool side for morning lows.

Warmer tomorrow, although only by a degree or two. Guidance numbers
are in the lower 90s for almost all areas and this seems perfectly

Long term...
(wednesday night through tuesday)

Look for a mainly dry forecast and hot temperatures through the end
of the week, with cooler temperatures this weekend and early next
week. The combination of warm 850 mb temperatures and lots of
daytime sunshine will continue the above normal temperatures through
Friday. Highs will be in the lower to mid 90s Thursday and mid to
upper 80s Friday. The overnight lows will be in the 50s to lower

A cold front will move south across west central Texas this weekend.
As a result, temperatures will cool closer to normal values for this
time of the year. An upper level trough will approach the area from
the west next Tuesday, and will continue the slight chance pops.
