Hello folks and good Thursday evening to you. An upper-level low coming from the central Pacific is bringing in cloud cover tonight, and a thin hope for some rain as it moves over the area through tomorrow morning. The very dry air mass in place at the surface will try to prevent this from happening, but as we cool down tonight, getting sprinkles is not out of the question. Occasionally, we'll see some light rain in our southeastern counties, but we'll wake up only to cloudy skies in the morning. Temperatures will fall to the 20s and 30s by sunrise tomorrow, but the winds will strengthen from the southwest, in advance of yet another cold front.
Friday afternoon, we'll warm up to the upper 50s and lower 60s south of the front which will reach from Boys Ranch to Shamrock during the peak heating hours. To the north of the boundary, temperatures will only get to the upper 40s and lower 50s. Clouds will start to break up in the afternoon but the breezy winds will stay with us until tomorrow evening.
Behind the front on Saturday, we'll all be cooler but skies will turn sunny later on in the day as highs hit the 40s.
Sunday and Monday, downsloping winds will help to get us back to unseasonably warm conditions with mostly clear skies, then another dry cool down is in store for Tuesday of next week.
Make it a great evening!
