From Sean Bellafiore:
It'll be a scorcher of a day today, at least for late January standards, as high temperatures climb into the upper 70s and lower 80s with mostly sunny skies and breezy southwesterly winds between 15 and 25 miles per hour. If you're a fan of cooler weather, don't worry, a cold front arrives tonight and should help to drop temperatures close to seasonal norms. By morning, the front should pass through most of Central Texas with Wednesday morning temperatures in the lower 40s west of I-35, middle and upper 40s near I-30, and upper 40s and lower 50s near I-45 and in the Brazos Valley.
Cooler air filters into Central Texas Wednesday afternoon behind northwesterly winds which will help to keep afternoon high temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s with mostly sunny skies. As cooler air settles in, temperatures for the foreseeable future should hover near seasonal norms. Morning temperatures Thursday through Monday drop into the 30s. High temperatures Thursday through Monday remain in the upper upper 50s and lower 60s with generally clear skies.
No precipitation is in the forecast through the next 7 days for any part of Central Texas. Early next week, high pressure will shift to the east and allow for the return of Gulf moisture into the atmosphere. Temperatures should begin to warm up through the middle of next week, but a lack of fronts or disturbances in the atmosphere should keep rain from falling. Long range model data keeps rain away from Central Texas through at least the middle of next week, but rain may remain absent from the forecast through next weekend.
