(sunday night through saturday)

An upper level ridge will build from the southeast U.S. Across Texas
early this week, shutting down any rain chances. Also, very warm
temperatures for Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the mid to
upper 90s. The upper level flow becomes northwesterly to northerly
through the remainder of the extended period, as the ridge shifts
into the the western U.S. By the end of this week. At the
surface, a cool front will move slowly south through much of west
central Texas Wednesday to along a Sweetwater to Brady line by
Friday, with the latest European model (ecmwf) is indicating the front along the
I-10 corridor. As a result, going with a chance of showers and
thunderstorms across much of west central Texas Tuesday night
through the weekend as abundant moisture will be in place. Also,
temperatures will be cooler with highs mainly in the lower 90s.
