South flow from the Gulf of Mexico will keep us warm and muggy tomorrow afternoon with a small chance for isolated showers to occur around out Western viewing area. As we progress into the over night hours, a cold front will begin to make a move on to the southeast. By Monday rain chances increase to 40% with a slight chance for thunderstorms during the peak heating hours. By Monday night into Tuesday morning, the front will have passed and temps will drop from the low and mid 70s to the upper 60s for the next couple of days with mostly sunny to partly cloudy conditions. Models however, do indicate another front developing west of the Mississippi River and moving east with the potential to effect out local area as early as Friday of next week. For the time being, I have increased rain chances beginning with Thursday night to 20% with highs in the low 70s that afternoon and low in the mid and upper 40s. By Friday, rain chances pick up to 30% but will last through just part of the afternoon. The front is expected to exit the Big Bend by the late afternoon with temps reaching only into the low 60s for highs. Looks to be a rather cold air mass behind this second front which will allow us to become much cooler. For now, the next weekend looks to be a chilly one; high in the low 60s with lows in the mid 30s! Tonight's forecast lows in the low and mid 50s with patchy fog beginning around 9PM and lifting tomorrow in the late morning. High tomorrow and muggy 75 degrees.
