Extended Forecast: Tuesday Night through Sunday:  After a warming trend began on Monday, temperatures continue to climb until clouds and potential rain cools the area down just slightly over the weekend.  The region could see 80’s during the work week with locations further west nearing the 90-degree mark.  The work week will see partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies with rain chances low in the 10-30 percent range.  Winds will be on the breezy side for much of the week with 10-20 mph winds gusting to 25-30 mph.  Over the weekend rain chances will be around 30-40 percent while under cloudy skies with 15 mph winds and temperatures warming into the middle 70’s.  Low temperatures from Monday through Sunday only drop down to around 55-65 degrees at night.

Synopsis: Storms push through on Sunday night that should confine rain showers to the areas over the Gulf (water).  Warmer air pushes up on from out of the south on Monday and this air should keep temperatures near 80 degrees for most of, if not all of the work week. Several storms that push through the Plains will lead to breezy/windy conditions in South Texas but only dropping minimal amounts of rain. Storms move in over the weekend that could lead to some rain chances (30-40 percent) and a little bit of a cool down with highs in the mid 70’s and lows in the mid 50’s.
