Tuesday started chilly enough, but most will shed the layers by midday as we step out to the mid to even upper 70s this afternoon. A slightly warmer, slightly windier day is on the way, but still extremely pleasant. A mild chill may return for the evening walk, especially post sunset. Starting tonight, the morning chill in the 30s and 40s looks to go away for a while. In the meantime, soak up the sun! We may find a bit Wednesday, but we really look to gray over by the end of the week.

An increase in low-level moisture may bring some fog or low cloud cover to the morning drive, and we can’t rule out some sprinkles, either. A quick break in cloud cover may come by the end of the day, but a cold front (not Arctic) approaches by the evening, giving us our next shot at showers. As the front pushes through the area, we expect the system to stall somewhere between B/CS and Houston, leaving a good boundary for more showers to pop up through the end of the week. Plan for a cool, damp Thursday and Friday, with scattered rain and a stray storm potentially dumping up to an inch, but likely lighter before we start our weekend. That “cold” air retreats back north this weekend, but enough moisture is in place to leave an at least isolated shot at rain through the weekend. Not looking to be a total washout, but you’ll want to keep the rain gear around through early next week.
