.SHORT TERM...
(Tonight and Saturday)
Quiet conditions in the short term across West Central Texas. Surface 
high pressure will build into the area tonight, and then begin to 
shift east on Saturday. This will allow for cooler temperatures as 
winds go light and variable tonight, with lows mainly in the 40s. 
South winds return on Saturday and aid warming, with highs in the 
low to mid 80s. 07

.LONG TERM...
(Saturday night through Friday)
Northwest flow aloft will become zonal Sunday, with a stronger 
lee trough developing. Breezy south to southwest winds expected 
over the Big Country and Concho Valley Sunday, with gusty south 
winds elsewhere. Temperatures warm up, with highs in the mid and 
upper 80s. Some areas could hit 90. 
A strong upper trough moves into the Central Rocky Mtns next 
week. It will move over Arizona/New Mexico Tuesday, before moving 
east of the West Central Texas Thursday. This will bring a chance 
of showers and thunderstorms beginning Monday night, with the best
chances Tuesday into Wednesday, as the upper trough brings 
moisture and lift over a weak cold front. Given the slowness of 
the system, there could be some localized heavy rainfall/flooding.
A few storms could also become severe. However, timing and 
organized nature of the storms is currently uncertain. 
Drier and warmer air late Thursday into Friday as the upper 
trough moves east.
