Discussion (9 October 2018)

Large cluster of showers and storms is making its way through the eastern Concho Valley. The heaviest of rains are near Ballinger and Eden with some moderate showers still near Sonora and NW Schleicher County. These showers and storms will continue to push east this morning before clearing the area by 10AM. Behind this boundary, northwesterly winds will take over while skies try to clear up this afternoon. Well still see temperatures in the upper 70s as cold air advection behind the boundary is not too strong. Dry weather will be in place for the rest of today, tomorrow and likely into Thursday. Temperatures will hover in the upper 70s each day but by the time we get into late Thursday the pattern will change once again. It is possible a few showers and storms could fire up Thursday late afternoon, but models are not real consistent with this. Therefore, Ill go ahead and leave the forecast dry and adjust if needed over the next few days. By Friday, remnants of Pacific Tropical Storm Sergio will be approaching the area and could bring showers and storms to the Trans-Pecos, Big County and northern Concho Valley. Ill go ahead and mention rain chances for Friday and Saturday to account for this. Meanwhile, a cold front Saturday night into Sunday could bring another round of showers and storms to the area Sunday morning with much cooler weather behind it.
