Up and at it again for another week! Like I always say, whoever decided that 5:2 was a good work week/weekend ratio must have really enjoyed going to work! But it's alright, because in a weatherman's line of work, the weather doesn't take any time off, so neither do we! That's what keeps it so exciting...there's always some new weather forecast challenge coming- sometimes we fare better than other times.
Anyway- today we can expect a warming trend, into the mid 70's. The sunshine will try to poke through from time to time, especially this afternoon, and this will aid in the surface warming. Further west, Fort Stockton will see more desert-like conditions, umping about 15 degrees warmer than it was yesterday.
Tomorrow (Tuesday), much of the region should be cloudy in the morning, may even see a little bit of light drizzle. High temperatures even warmer than today, approaching 80 degrees in some places like Del Rio and Eagle Pass.
Wednesday, a cold front is expected to blast through the region, bringing some rain showers and thunderstorms to portions of northern Hill Country, likely cities include Abilene, Coleman, Brownwood, Comanche, Stephenville, Hamilton, Lampasas, Killeen, Waco, Crawford, and extending northeast into the Dallas/Fort Worth Area. Portions of the Midwest are under the gun for severe weather during that time.
To all other locations in our local area on Wednesday, we could see spotty light rain, but for the most part it will just be gusty winds and rather dry....bad for allergies and wildfires. From San Angelo south, winds could gust in excess of 30 - 40mph while relative humidity values drop to around 20-30%, especially in West Texas by Midland, Odessa, Fort Stockton, Ozona, Sanderson, Alpine, Fort Davis, & Marfa.
