We ended the week with temperatures just slightly below normal however, the sunny weather pattern made that feel just fine. High pressure will begin to pull to the east as a region of low pressure drops into the northern part of the state. This will signal the arrival of a cold air mass into the region. A cold front will pass through the region before sunrise and bring a chance of rain across the area before daybreak.
Saturday morning will start out chilly and a bit breezy. Temperatures will be near the 40 degree mark. We could see a few left over clouds to the south and east. Winds will begin to increase we approach mid-morning as a low pressure area pushes into Southeast Texas. Temperatures will climb into the mid and upper 50s by the lunch hour. The afternoon will see plenty of sunshine with breezy north winds putting a chill in the air. Moisture levels will be very low with fire danger concerns to the west. Peak afternoon temperatures will hit the mid-60s. Winds will begin to back off by early evening and set up excellent radiative cooling conditions. This will bring another chilly start to the day Sunday with temperatures in the mid and upper 30s.
Long term - another front arrives on Sunday but there will not be enough moisture in the air to generate showers so, I expect it to come through dry. A strong north flow a lot will tap into some polar air and send it southward. We won't see much of it as is heads off to the east. High pressure moves back in on Wednesday. Temperatures will trend upwards into the latter part of next week, getting close to the 80 degree mark.
