Short term...
(tonight and wednesday)

Showers have expanded in coverage across The Hill Country and
Heartland as they drift to the west, rotating around the tropical
low over south Texas. These showers should persist into the early
evening hours, before largely dissipating by sunset. Models
struggling to figure out this meandering tropical low, but main idea
is still to keep is south and east of the area. Thus, some isolated
showers (although less coverage than today) possible again on
Wednesday for areas east of an Abilene to San Angelo line. Increased
cloud cover has kept temperatures down this afternoon, with even San
Angelo itself barely reaching into the lower 90s. Less clouds on
Wednesday should lead to a climb in temperatures again with highs in
the low to mid 90s.

Long term...
(thursday through wednesday)

The high pressure ridge across the southwestern U.S. Will continue
to slide towards the east over the next couple of days. This will
diminish most of the rain chances for the end of this week as the
approaching disturbance over the Gulf will now stall and weaken
as a result. Temperatures will then climb back into the upper 90s
this week with triple digits being possible for the weekend. Rain
chances are minimal at best across the region.
