Short term (tonight through Friday night)...
a clear and cool night followed by mostly sunny skies and mild
temperatures summarize the next 24 to 30 hours.

Long term (saturday through thursday)...
an upper level ridge will dominate the region through Monday of
next week promoting dry weather conditions. Surface southerly flow
returns over the area for the upcoming weekend and brings near to
normal climate temperatures with highs in the mid 80s and lows in
the lower to mid 60s.

A Pacific northwest storm is forecast to push across The Four
Corners region early next week. This upper level storm system is
forecast to move to the northeast into the central and northern
plains by middle of the week. A cold front is expected to push
across the area on Wednesday with slight to lower end chances for
rain across The Hill Country and east of Interstate 35.

Dry and cool weather returns Thursday in the wake of the cold
front.
