Rainy and Cooling Down This Week

Coming off of a beautiful weekend with warm temperatures and sunny skies, we got to start our work week with it as well! We made into the mid 70°s today, a little bit warmer than what we saw had during the weekend.  The evening stays just as nice as we'll be in the mid 60°s with partly cloudy skies.  As we move into the overnight, cloud cover will increase, and temperatures will be a little cool in the low 50°s.  A low pressure system will make its approach during the overnight, bringing in even more clouds during the day tomorrow, but we'll still manage to get into the mid 70°s for the afternoon.  A weak warm front will move through late tomorrow night, keeping our overnight temperatures pretty warm in the low 60°s, but it'll also bring us a small chance for some light rain.

The chance for rain only lasts for a few hours, but the chance for thunderstorms picks up as we head into Wednesday afternoon.  We have a marginal risk for severe weather on Wednesday, as another low pressure system will form in southwest Texas and track along the jet stream into our area.  The low will bring in quite a bit of warmth and moisture, but it'll also bring a cold front which will push all that warmth and moisture upwards, allowing for thunderstorms to develop.  The storms will produce heavy rain and some gusty winds, but they'll clear out by the evening when the front passes through.

The front will cool our temperatures into the mid 50°s for the rest of the week, with a third low moving in on Friday.  The warm front associated with this low will bring us more rainfall, but it'll only warm our temperatures up into the upper 50°s and low 60°s, doing the opposite of the warm front coming up tomorrow night will do.  The low will continue the inflow of warm air through Saturday night, bringing in more thunderstorms for the overnight.  Temperatures stay in the upper 50°s and low 60°s for the weekend, with a chance for rain coming up next Monday.
