Cold front starts to show signs of interaction with the Big Bend by Monday Late in the afternoon. Wide spread light to moderate shower activity is expected with a chance for a few isolated thunderstorms. Though our atmosphere is very much saturated not only in the mid levels but at the surface, our heating will break down tomorrow afternoon which hinders sufficient forcing lift. I don't think we will have to worry about severe thunderstorms through the area but the front will be long lasting over the southeast so expect "LONDON WEATHER" my favorite! I increased rain chances to 40% Tuesday and Wednesday with the front finally passing that night. High pressure sets up behind the front and will drop highs and lows dramatically. Low 60s in the afternoon for Wednesday and Thursday with lows in the upper 30s and low 40s. Reasoning is lack of cloud cover and flow. Radiational cooling and cold air advection will be playing key rolls with this high pressure. I do see a rebound in temps to the low 70s by the weekend with potential for more rainfall; its a bit far out but it looks to be another boundary from the west so get ready with the umbrellas for the next weekend!
