Short term...
(tonight and wednesday)

Mid and high clouds have been gradually decreasing across west
central Texas this afternoon and the trend should continue. Partly
cloudy to mostly clear skies, along with light winds, and dewpoints
dropping into the 40s this afternoon will make for a cool night
across the area. Lows in the mid 50s to around 60 across the area
look on target. Lots of sunshine and warmer for Wednesday which will
likely be the warmest day of the week. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

Long term...
(wednesday night through tuesday)

Looks like a quiet and dry weather pattern this week across west
central Texas. A strong upper level low develops across the eastern
Continental U.S. And a narrow ridge builds over the central US. At the surface,
a cool front will move south across the area Thursday morning,
bringing cooler temperatures through the first part of the
weekend. Southerly flow returns Sunday through Tuesday as a broad
upper level trough moves into the western Continental U.S.. a few storms may
be possible along a dryline just to our west Monday and Tuesday.
However, coverage will be too isolated to mention pops in the
grids and zones. Highs will be in the 70s to lower 80s, warming
into the mid to upper 80s by late this weekend and early next
week. Lows will be in the 50s, warming into the 60s Sunday through
