General Discussion:
Pleasant weather has arrived in Texas and will continue all week. Low humidity and mostly clear skies will allow for nighttime temperatures to cool significantly to mostly below-normal temperatures in the 50s and 60s. The abundant sunshine will allow for strong daytime heating to approach normal high temperatures. Highs will reach the mid-80s to low-90s over the next seven days, but the low humidity will make it more comfortable. Unfortunately, only a small portion of the state will see rain over the next week or more.

The cold front is still lingering over the Rio Grande Valley. This will produce a few scattered showers and thunderstorms again this afternoon. Highs in the Valley will be in the 85-90-degree range. There could also be an isolated shower or two over southern Far West Texas this afternoon. Otherwise, the bulk of the state will be sunny and dry today. Highs will range from the mid-80s to low-90s this afternoon with low humidity over all but the Rio Grande Valley. 85 in Midland today. Near 90 in Austin. Temperatures will drop quickly again tonight after sunset into the 50s and 60s. The front will also push through the Valley resulting in the cooler air and lower humidity making it all the way through Texas.

Sunny and dry across the state on Wednesday. Highs will generally be within a degree of today's highs. Most locations will top out between 85 and 90 tomorrow afternoon.
