Even with the Sunday clouds, afternoon temperatures managed to warm into the mid to upper 60s for highs. Places just to the west are a little cooler as a stationary boundary sits along the Sabine River. This boundary extends down into the Gulf of Mexico where an upper disturbance will slowly track off the Texas coast and move towards the Louisiana coastline by early Tuesday.
Tonight into tomorrow morning will be much of the same as temperatures fall into the low 50s, with some morning fog possible. On Monday, expect another cloudy day with a few peeks of sun and rain chances at 20% or less.
By late Monday night into Tuesday morning the disturbance tracking across the Gulf should move close enough to us to increase our rain chances, and also bring the threat of a few thunderstorms into the forecast. No severe weather is expected as most of the rough weather will remain over the open Gulf waters.
The wet weather will quickly come to an end by Tuesday afternoon, but clouds will remain until a strong frontal boundary swings through on Wednesday. This will be a dry frontal passage but cooler air and breezy conditions arrive on the back side.
Lots of sunshine will return for Wednesday afternoon through the end of the week as overnight lows fall into the 30s and 40s, but highs warm into the 60s each day.
A first glance at next weekend shows clouds on the increase with rain chances possibly moving in for Sunday. Temperatures will be warm though, highs will climb into the 70s both days.
Have a great week!
