Although the weather the past month has been rather uneventful to Central Texas, the atmospheric dynamics taking place overhead have been truly exciting!
Ok, I'm nerding out a bit...but nearly every couple of days I've seen the upper-level weather pattern shift...and that's why every couple of days we have more clouds, followed by drier, windier days, then a day or two of fog/mist, then a repeat over and over again. Needless to say, if this pattern continues to into the spring time, we may see a very active spring season as far as thunderstorms and violent weather is concerned. It just so happens that wintertime is, historically speaking, the driest time of the year to the region...and unlike much of the rest of the Southern United States, has historically remained even more dry during El Niño seasons, based on some research I did- specifically for the Del Rio area.
But, for the weather overnight and tomorrow, expect some warmer morning temperatures throughout as moisture has filtered in to the region...this will likely cause fog and mist throughout much of the area during the morning hours, gradually breaking out into a nice, warm day...up to 10*F above normal.
This won't last too long, though, as Tuesday brings in some slightly cloudier skies and a cold front that looks to cool the area off into the 50's and 60's during the afternoon...could see some light rain showers on Tuesday as well...but nothing significant. After a couple days of clouds, we'll again start to heat up and clear out for the weekend!
