Short term...
(today and tonight)

...

After a cool start this morning, temperatures will continue to
warm, during the next 24 hours. Highs today will be warmer than
yesterday, with numbers mainly in the 75 to 80 range. Then, lows
tonight back in the 50s look likely, as winds from the south bring
warmer air into west central Texas.

Long term...
(wednesday through monday)

.Another cold front and possible rain...

The highlight of the long-term forecast remains centered on
another cold front and possible rain. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) still
present diverging solutions regarding the 500 mb pattern; the
European model (ecmwf) still digs an upper trough much farther south than the GFS.
Plus, the European model (ecmwf) develops a closed low aloft and is much slower
with its progression of the upper trough. All this really doesn't
increase confidence much; thus, maintaining pops close to our
previous forecast looks best, for the Thursday through Friday
periods. This next front will bring cooler air, and that means
highs Friday and Saturday will likely be cooler than usual late
October highs.
