We’re going to experience one more day of above-average temperatures before winter air returns. Tonight, lows will fall to the upper 50s to around 60° with patchy cloud cover and areas of fog forming around sunrise. A light south wind will keep moisture and mildness in place, but limit excessive fog development. The high-pressure system responsible for the recent warmth will further shift and weaken, yielding to a slow-moving cold front over the Deep South. We’ll start to see more cloudiness, especially the western half of the viewing region, by Wednesday afternoon, and far-western areas have the best chance for approaching showers. Overall coverage will peak at 30% west, while eastern sections will continue with a sun-and-cloud mix. Highs will range from the lower 70s near the tri-state to near 80° in the southeast Big Bend. Thursday, the front will be shoved into the region and winds become more northerly, capping temperatures in the 50s to around 60° all day with shower activity, then partial clearing and colder for the end of the week.
