A little increased cloudiness though the day today, keeping our temperatures a little cooler today than yesterday....high's in the 60's, lows after the sun sets tonight and into tomorrow morning reaching down into the 40's.
This weekend will be kind of gloomy. I don't expect widespread rain, but I do expect some scatter ed rain showers through the region Saturday and Sunday (Next week is a whole other beast). The Alpine/Marfa/Fort Davis area will begin to see rain overnight tonight, and by mid-morning, the San Angelo area may see some spotty showers. This will push through northern Hill Country and the Edwards Plateau into the Interstate 35 Corridor through San Marcos & Austin Saturday evening and Sunday...but still only spotty light showers. South of the Interstate 10 from Ozona to San Antonio , isolated light rain showers, but mostly just clouds and drizzle here and there, especially Sunday. Just kind of gloomy, like I said.
Now the next beast is Monday evening through Wednesday with a strong storm system that will push through the region with a vigorous cold front and cause some severe storms and heavy rain to occur. Still difficult to gauge intensity right now, but based on the track of the system, I would venture to say that portions of Northern Hill County and Northern Edwards Plateau (towards the Interstate 20) will see some of the worst of the weather. Once the cold front drops out of Hill Country along the Interstate 35 and east, heavy rain and flooding is again a threat, all the way to the Arkansas/Louisiana lines. More to come on this...so stay tuned!
