The July cold front did all it could, but wasn’t able to overcome the South Texas summertime heat. Warmth remains, but a few cool mornings in the days ahead are likely.

Wednesday’s forecast

Drier air will be moving into the area in the wake of Tuesday night’s cold front. The “drier” air won’t take out all the humidity, but it will take it down a notch. This will pave for some cool mornings from starting Wednesday through Friday. These mornings are not currently forecast to be record breaking, but that could change. Regardless, morning temperatures will be unusually cool.

The drier air heats up much faster, so we’ll be back in the mid-90s again on Wednesday. There will be one benefit though. Because the air will have less humidity, the heat index won’t be near as high as we’ve see it lately. It will be closer to the actual air temperature.

Thursday through the weekend

Nice and quiet weather sets up for Thursday and Friday as drier hangs around and leaves us with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 90s. By the weekend, another chance of rain arrives. But don’t cancel your plans just yet; we’ve got plenty of time to iron out those details.
