SAN ANGELO, Texas – A cold front is moving south across the region Sunday morning, leading to temperatures dropping into the 30s and 40s behind the front with light showers or drizzle as the front moves through. Later today, much drier air will infiltrate west central Texas, likely resulting in partial clearing by the afternoon. The influx of cold air will keep temperatures cool, with highs reaching only the lower 50s.
Tonight, a surface high pressure system will settle over north Texas, accompanied by light east-northeasterly winds. Some mid to high level cloud cover over the northern Edwards Plateau and northwest Hill Country might slightly hinder cooling. Expect a cold night with temperatures plummeting into the 20s and 30s throughout the area.
Monday through Tuesday will experience cooler-than-normal temperatures due to surface high pressure, with highs in the low 50s on Monday and mid to upper 50s on Tuesday. Wednesday will see a return of warmer temperatures, ranging from the low to mid 60s.
Late Wednesday, an upper-level low moving into the Desert Southwest will swiftly traverse Texas on Thursday, resulting in slight to moderate rain chances primarily across the eastern half of the forecast area. A weak front is anticipated late Thursday but is unlikely to significantly impact Friday and Saturday's highs, which are expected to remain in the mid to upper 60s.
