Happy Veterans Day.
Today, we can expect some gusty winds after a cold front passes through the region, clearing some of our clouds out of the way. The passage of the cold front, for the most part, will be mid-day into the evening, moving from west to east. Fort Stockton and the Big Bend region should experience it late morning, and see drastically drier conditions, leading to elevated wildfire risk.
Much of Hill Country and the Edwards Plateau, including San Angelo, Sonora, Brady, and Brownwood will see somewhat cloudy skies for the first half of the day, but will see some sunshine as the cold front progresses, and will see temperatures into the 40's by early morning tomorrow. Little to no rain showers are expected through the region....east of the Interstate 35 may see an isolated thunderstorm or two, as will some areas up near the Interstate 20 and the DFW Metroplex.
Further south, Del Rio, Eagle Pass, Kerrville, Uvalde, San Antonio area as well as locations along and east of the south Interstate 35 Corridor such as Pearsall, Devine, Cotulla, and Pleasanton, Floresville....mostly cloudy through the morning with some light patchy drizzle expected in some areas...then clearing out at some point this afternoon/evening, supposing the cold front doesn't run out of gas and stall out (wouldn't be the first time...).
This coming weekend...mostly cloudy skies....still a little toss-up, but Sunday looks like it could bring some scattered light rain showers to the region....check back tomorrow for more. Midweek next week, we look to see our most rigorous storm system yet this season, drastically lowering temperatures and bringing some significant rainfall....but I'll have to walk that one in for y'all because it is too far out to make any accurate judgments. Stay Tuned!
