Plan for a cooler night behind today’s cold front. Skies will continue to clear through the evening with lows in the mid-upper 50s. A few low 60s are likely across the Southside. You may even need that light jacket with those cool morning temperatures.


Sunshine returns in full force Tuesday as an area of high pressure builds in. We’ll see mostly sunny conditions throughout the day with highs in the mid 80s. We turn slightly warmer and more humid Wednesday ahead of a mid-week cold front. The front officially arrives late Wednesday evening triggering a few overnight showers and stray storm.

As the front slows down over the area, we may keep a few clouds and stray shower around early Thursday morning. Skies will quickly turn sunny behind the front as drier air returns under high pressure. This will lead to clearing skies through Friday. Our high temperatures remain in the low to mid 80s through the first part of the weekend. Overnight lows will slip to the upper 50s Friday and Saturday mornings.

Temperatures hold in the 80s through the weekend.
