The Gulf of Mexico will really be kicking up some moisture into the region for the remainder of the week...this will be evident by the low clouds, drizzle, and mist throughout Central Texas.
Gusty winds...between 15-25 mph at times, will consume the rest of the week, continuing to supply the area with increasing Gulf moisture...therefore early morning clouds and drizzle will be the main story through the week.
Here's an infrared Satellite Image from this afternoon. Remember, infrared satellite images simply show the temperature of whatever it "sees"...clouds or not. It's been so warm lately that the satellite is picking up the hot ground through the Desert Southwest and much of Mexico, as displayed in a brilliant pink color. You can even pick out the mountainous terrain outline out west, since it is cooler (blueish). Meanwhile, a strong storm overtakes the West Coast. Cool!
Sunday, an upper level disturbance will move over the region...this will create some rain showers through Central Texas. Right now, it looks like most of the rain will fall north of the Highway 90 Corridor and along Hill Country and the Interstate 35 Corridor...up to an inch in some places, but more likely about a half inch widespread. Nonetheless, there should be a decent springtime sprinkling through the region...a welcome change from the *boring* weather we've had this winter.
