Short term...
(today and tonight)

It should be a quiet morning across west central Texas, with a
few hours of low clouds possible across mainly the Northwest Hill
country. The cam models are indicating isolated to scattered
showers and thunderstorms developing across the area this
afternoon. The main hazards from storms will be dangerous
lightning and locally heavy rainfall. The coverage of storms will
decrease by mid evening and dissipate by midnight. Highs today
will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s and lows tonight will be in
the upper 60s to around 70.

Long term...
(monday through saturday)

More of the same expected through midweek, with diurnally driven
showers and thunderstorms possible each day. A tropical like
airmass will remain across the area through Wednesday, with
precipitable water values around 1.5 inches. Weak flow aloft,
combined with the high moisture content of the atmosphere will
result in slow moving storms capable of producing heavy downpours.
Temperatures through Wednesday will remain slightly below normal
for this time of year, with highs in the upper 80s to around 90
degrees and lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

The upper ridge will reassert itself across the area by the end
of the week and into next weekend. This will result in a drying
trend through the period, along with slightly warmer temperatures.
Still could see some isolated convection Thursday and Friday and
will hold onto slight pops both days, with dry conditions for
Saturday. Highs will be in the lower 90s Thursday through Saturday
and in the mid 90s by Sunday. Overnight lows will be mainly in the
lower 70s.
