(Tonight and Sunday) 

Temperatures this afternoon across West Central Texas range from the 
40s across much of the Big Country to the low to mid 50s elsewhere. 
Northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph, will quickly decrease late this 
afternoon and early this evening. Cloud cover will increase Sunday 
morning, especially across the Big Country. Overnight lows will be 
cold, with most locations dropping into the upper 20s to lower 30s. 
Below normal temperatures are forecast across the area on Sunday, 
with highs generally in the mid 40s to near 50 degrees. 

(Sunday Night through Saturday)

Zonal flow to prevail across the Southern Plains through most of
the upcoming week. Weal shortwave will zip across South Texas on
Tuesday and may bring a few showers, but appears this will mainly
be south of West Central Texas. Gradual warming trend occur
through the week with highs climbing into the mid and upper 60s
for Wednesday-Friday.

Bigger changes for next weekend as a deeper trough moves into the
area. Very cold air in Alaska will make a southward plunge as
this upper trough passes, with the ECMWF showing an arctic cold
front plunging through the plains. GFS isn't as cold, but 
normally doesn't handle this type of cold air very well anyway so
will lean towards a colder solution for next weekend. Will drop 
highs into the 40s for most areas on Saturday with the raw data 
suggesting it may be even colder. Once the forecast details start 
to become a little more certain, temperatures may need to be 
dropped even more.
