Drier air for now, next rain chances already in the forecast
VICTORIA, Texas – Drier air filtering into the Crossroads this afternoon, as the lagging upper level trough has begun to move through. After this, we’re looking at some short lived high pressure building in this evening, and onshore southerly flow returning tomorrow to raise the humidity once again. Tonight, expect clear skies and cooler temperatures (not as cold as last night!). Lows will dip into the mid to upper 30s under clear skies. Friday will have you itching for the weekend, despite rising humidity. Highs in the low 70s, under beautiful sunny skies. Definitely cannot beat a forecast like that!
This weekend is going to play a game of peek-a-boo with a weak cold front. Saturday, the aforementioned cold front will slide into our area then promptly retreat to the north. Depending on how far into the Crossroads this cold front gets will influence our high temperatures on Saturday, which makes it a little tricky to forecast. As of now, expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 70s. Cooling off just slightly into the mid 50s that evening.
Sunday and into next week’s forecast will be filled with rain chances. Starting off Sunday with scattered showers due to onshore flow. This chance will last into Tuesday, when our next cold front should approach the region. Highs these days will be in the upper 70s, but a weak trough in the region will make Tuesday’s high a bit closer to normal. Atmospheric models are differing on the timing, but it’s looking to come mid-week next week. Highs will dip into the 60s, making things a bit cooler around here for a bit.
