Synopsis:  
Cooler air moved into South Texas as Monday’s (yesterday’s) cold front pushed through with rain and wind.  The front stalled offshore over the Gulf last night. The idle front and lingering moisture will keep cloud cover prevalent through Tuesday night, especially closer to the coast and over the waters.  If lift is strong enough, then we cannot rule out a few showers over the Gulf waters through Tuesday as well.

The winds weakened Monday night while temperatures dropped down into the upper 40’s and lower 50’s.  The cooler airflow out of the northeast combined with the cloud cover will keep temperatures in the upper 60’s to the low 70’s for South Texas.  Some locations west of US Highway 281 could see some areas of sunshine (clearing).

The cold front will take on warmer sub-tropical properties (warm front, trough) and will start to move back to the north later Tuesday night which should allow temperatures to be a little bit warmer Tuesday night.

In the long term for the extended period, days 3 to 7, Wednesday through Monday, airflow will move from west to east through the Southern Plains while high-pressure sits over the Gulf with storms stretching across the country.

A warm front will lift north on Wednesday thus returning low-level warm moist air to the area helping dewpoints and ambient temperatures heat up into the 60’s.  The lack of lift and dry upper levels will keep conditions dry.

A strengthening trough over the western portion of the country will help to deliver our next cold front on Saturday.  The front will move through during the morning and until the early afternoon.  The area will see moderate airflow along with drier conditions from the front on Saturday.  This dry off could lead to elevated fire weather conditions.  Saturday could experience a few showers (thunderstorms) while the rain tapers off from west to east by Saturday evening.  A rebound after the cold front will be temperatures for the most part will warm into the mid 80’s to low 90’s through Friday.  After Saturday’s Temperatures will then drop back down into the 60’s by Sunday.  Saturday nights temperatures will drop down into the 40’s after the front clears the area by Saturday night.
