Short term...
(today and tonight)

.Cold front...

Another cold front will push, from north to south, across west
central Texas today. This front will bring winds from the north,
along with cooler temperatures. Expect high today mainly in the 55
to 60 range; that's right on track with normal high temperatures,
for this time of year. Lows tonight, mainly in the 30 to 35 range,
will also be close to seasonal normals.

Long term...
(wednesday through monday)

.Continued dry with temperature swings...

The long term remains dry, and a couple more cold fronts will
create temperature swings. Temperatures will rebound quickly for
Wednesday, as winds from the southwest produce afternoon highs
well above seasonal normals, mainly in the 65 to 70 range. Then,
another cold front Wednesday night into Thursday will again bring
winds from the north and cooler temperatures. Highs on Thursday
will also be close to seasonal normals. By Saturday, highs will
again range above seasonal normals, with gusty winds from the
southwest. In addition. Another cold front overnight Saturday
night into Sunday will bring temperatures back into the range of
seasonal normals. Nevertheless, a quick rebound will produce
highs on Monday back in the 60s.
