We have pleasant conditions across South Texas as a weak frontal boundary has pushed passed the area and is dropping dewpoints a few degrees making it feel a bit more comfortable outdoors.

Today we’ll look for partly cloudy skies with temperatures near seasonal average n the middle 80s.  A few showers will be possible in our southern and western counties.  Winds will be out of the east-northeast around 8-16MPH.

Tonight will be mainly clear and pleasant with overnight lows in the lower 70s.

Friday and into the weekend, temperatures will increase back above normal in the lower 90s as moisture begins to increase again off the Gulf leading to more clouds and wind.

Tropical Storm Sergio in the Pacific will ride over Baja California into the weekend and eventually push rain chances in northern and western parts of Texas.  Then, a strong cold front will push through the Central Plains and dive southward into the Lone Star State.

We’ll look for that frontal boundary to move into the Coastal Bend early Monday morning and filter in through about midday with strong northerly winds, showers and much cooler temperatures.

By Tuesday and Wednesday it’ll be damp and dreary, but we’ll have morning lows in the 50s with daytime highs in the 60s and 70s!

Michael is now a tropical storm moving through the Carolinas today.  Hurricane Leslie and Tropical Storm Nadine are in the Atlantic and not forecast to impact the U.S.
