Fair Skies and Dry Continental Air Dominate the Lone Star State through Midweek

Cool Nights and Mild Afternoons in Store

A morning cold front swept through the Crossroads and swept away stifling heat and humidity that has defined this summer and early fall. Isolated showers and thunderstorms developed along the front but remained just east of the Golden Crescent. Dry continental air will ridge into the region overnight and send the mercury into the lower 60s by daybreak. That relatively dry air will heat to the middle 80s Tuesday afternoon under abundant sunshine. Temperatures moderate quickly Wednesday and Thursday, however, as the continental air mass pushes eastward out of our area, but another cold front—a stronger one—arrives Friday morning. That front will bring the likelihood of rain and thunderstorms, and also will push overnight temperatures into the 50s for the weekend. Weekend highs will linger in the 70s.
