Cloudy, Warm and Humid Conditions Persist along with Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms
Return to Seasonable Temperatures Expected Next Week
Copious amounts of Gulf moisture linger over South Texas, and a stationary front from the I-10 corridor into the Edwards Plateau is generating scattered showers and thunderstorms late today. Temperatures once again climbed into the upper 70s as a steady southeast wind at 10 to 20 mph pumped high levels of humidity into the area. Expect another mild night and a warm Friday with scattered showers and thunderstorms returning to the area. In fact, scattered showers and storms will pelt the region again on Saturday, but another cold front arrives to cool things considerably before Saturday noon. The first half of next week will be much cooler, with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s and 40s. Temperatures warm into the 60s Wednesday and Thursday ahead of a major developing storm, one that promises scattered thunderstorms Wednesday and widespread rain and thunderstorms on Thursday.
