Friday Morning Weather Update Greg Morgan Ė Chief Meteorologist
After a cool start to the day and some patchy fog, much more pleasant weather conditions are expected through the afternoon. Highs will reach into the 80ís and 90ís for much of SW Texas. However, a few locations in the northern and eastern Permian Basin will struggle to see highs get out of the 70ís due to a cold front impacting these locations prior to peak heating. Winds will be out of the ESE through much of the day at 5-15mph.
Winds will quickly shift to the NE this evening and increase as the previously mentioned front works its way into the area. Breezy to windy conditions will remain in the offing through tomorrow afternoon. Much cooler air will move into behind the front. Expect overnight lows in the mid 40ís. Rain chances will increase as the front moves through. Expect a chance of light rain showers to persist much of the day on Saturday, into early Sunday. Given the expected cloud cover and rain-cooled air, it appears likely that highs will stall around 50 degrees on Saturday and only make it to the upper 50ís on Sunday. Overnight lows will continue to fall into the 40ís if not the 30ís over the weekend.
Conditions will improve on Monday and continue to improve through the middle of the week. A large storm system will move into the SW United States late next week. The chance of rain looks promising, starting Thursday and continuing into the weekend. However, itís a bit too early to get overly excited.
