All good things must come to an end, and 80 degree weather in December must too, unfortunately.
Look for increasing clouds overnight and some fog and drizzle to regions along and south of the Interstate 90 in Central Texas during the morning, and much more widespread east of Interstate 35.
Should warm up pretty well again tomorrow, but it will be that muggy type of warm, a strong gulf flow surges in supporting the approaching storm system. We can expect some rain showers during the evening and overnight into Sunday as a quick-moving cold front pushes through the region, also bringing some
gusty winds behind it.
With these rain showers, we could see a lightning strike or two, but I don't expect widespread thunderstorms at this time to the region, although it's a different story on the eastern half of the state and through North Texas where severe thunderstorms are possible over the next couple days.
Cold front passage (and highest chance for storms) should be around sunset Saturday through Fort Stockton, around 10pm through Del Rio and San Angelo, and around 3am to San Antonio. This will also bring wind speeds around 40 mph behind it. Rainfall totals will likely be under a half inch fo West Texas and the Rio Grande cities, but between 1-2 inches through Hill Country...then up to 3 inches along the Interstate 35 north of San Antonio. East Texas could see a gully-washer of over 5 inches.
Looking for temperatures to slightly above normal into early next week.
