… Clouds and Higher Humidity …
… A Cold Front Passes Through the Area Tonight …
… Sunshine with Cooler Temperatures Mid through Late Week …

On this Wednesday… a cold front has moved southeastward through the area and has moved to a Shreveport, LA.. Bryan/College Station and south of San Antonio line as of mid morning. As a result, our surface winds across south central Texas are northerly.

In the upper levels of the atmosphere.. a trough, or line, of upper air low pressure is located from central Canada just west of Hudson Bay southward through the central USA. Our upper level winds, at about 30,000 feet overhead, are westerly at around 100 mph.

Skies are clearing with cooler and drier conditions expected through the end of the week.

A developing surface low pressure area.. along the cold front as it weakens well to our south.. will move west to east with an overrunning pattern developing for the upcoming weekend. Another cold front will move into Texas by early Tuesday morning with rain chances and clouds lingering into Sunday and Monday before that cold front moves through our local area.

Have a good Wednesday….
