Slightly Warm This Week

We'll feel plenty of warmth and humidity each day of this third full week of October. In actuality, high temps will only end up two to four degrees above the normal 81, with daytime low-mid 80s much of the week. A wimpy cold front will try to enter Texas on Thursday but we'll have to wait a full week until the next big cooldown occurs.

Today across Texas:

Travelers moving west on I-10 might run into showers tied to a disturbance near El Paso. It'll keep clouds and some showers going near the Rio Grande, but most of that activity will stay to our west:

With this disturbance neaby, our forecast calls for a mix of sun and clouds today. Low clouds will thicken up again during the night then, by mid-morning tomorrow, we'll expect a transition back to partly sunny status. The upper-air disturbance is expected to open up and move northeast tomorrow, leaving high pressure in its wake for a few days.  By Thursday, another disturbance will follow for...though with very little to no rain chance here locally. The cold front associated with that system might not even make it south of the Red River Valley.  By the weekend, high pressure builds over Texas once again, pushing temps into the mid and upper 80s Saturday & Sunday before a powerful Fall cold front enters the picture. It brings our next plunge in temps & rain opportunity one week from today. See the 7 Day Forecast for details.

In The Tropics...

A weak and disorganized disturbance in the SW Gulf/Bay of Campeche shows a low probability of organizing into a tropical cyclone. As of now, NOAA gives it a 30% chance of development during the next five days, and it would likely move east towards Florida due to upper level winds. In the Pacific, TROPICAL STORM ANA continues to bring rain to the Hawaiian Islands even as she moves further west, yet the official forecast warns ANA could again become a hurricane as she curves to the north.

Meteor Shower Tonight... As many as 20 "shooting stars" per hour might be see over the Lone Star State tonight. The annual Orionid Meteor shower actually peaks very early Tueseday morning. Mostly the size of a grain of sand, each one of these meteors are leftover pieces of Halley's Comet and they travel into Earth's atmosphere at more than 100,000 mph. Skywatchers might curse the low clouds, which are expected to fill in during the night. Otherwise, the best advice is to get away from the city lights and simply look up.

Enjoy your Monday.
