WEATHER

Forecast Discussion

Near-normal temperatures are expected today through Saturday with lows in
the lower to middle 40s and highs in the upper-50s to lower 60s. A cold
front is expected to sweep through Southeast Texas tonight, but no rainfall
is expected with its passage. Dry weather is expected through Saturday.
With an active jet stream over the region, periods of sun and clouds are
expected the rest of this week.

The long term forecast for Sunday and Monday is a bit murky with diverging
solutions. This means one model shows something entirely different
weather-wise from the other long range forecast model. At this point, will
go with mostly cloudy skies both days with a chance of rain until it
becomes clear which model is the one to go with on the forecast. Lows will
be in the middle 40s with highs in the lower to middle 60s.

Short Term Forecast

Southern Southeast Texas Today: Partly cloudy, cool. Winds: NE/N 3-8
mph.
