A quick, cool snap is on the way thanks to a fairly strong cold front expected late tonight across Southeast Texas.

Currently, the front extends from Tyler to just north of Austin.  The front will push through the Lakes Area around midnight and then through the Triangle during the very early hours of Thursday Morning.  A band of showers, possibly a thunderstorm is forecasted with its passage.  Behind the front, much drier air will filter into the area with sunny, warm days and chilly nights Friday and Saturday.  By Sunday, southerly winds will return to the area and this means the "muggies" will return.  Still, the extended forecast looks mainly dry the next seven days.

Tonight, partly cloudy with a 20% coverage of showers and possibly a few thunderstorms.  Lows will range from the upper 50s to lower 60s in the Triangle to the middle to upper 50s in the Lakes Area.  Winds will shift from the south to the north with the passage of the front.

Thursday looks gorgeous with sunny skies and lower humidity.  Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  North to northeasterly winds are forecasted.

Friday will feel like Fall.  Morning lows will be in the lower 50s with afternoon highs in the lower 80s.  Sunny skies and low humidity can be expected.  North-northwesterly winds are forecasted.

Saturday, more sun is forecasted with a great afternoon for outdoor activities.  Lows will be chilly and in the upper 40s with highs rebounding into the lower to middle 80s.  Easterly winds early will turn towards the south.

Sunday, higher humidity will begin returning to the area as cold high pressure moves away from Southeast Texas.  Still, mostly sunny skies are forecasted with dry weather continuing.  Lows will warm to around 60 with afternoon highs in the lower to middle 80s.  South-southeasterly winds are forecasted.

You'll need the A. C. by Monday as moisture levels rapidly climb.  Mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures will continue with no rainfall in the forecast as high pressure aloft builds over the region.  Low temperatures will only drop into the middle 60s with highs in the middle 80s.  Southeasterly winds off the Gulf of Mexico will continue to increase moisture and humidity levels.

By Tuesday, partly sunny skies will return to the forecast.  Lows will be in the middle 60s with highs in the middle 80s.  South and southeasterly winds will make it feel more like Spring.

Little change on Wednesday as Spring-like weather continues with partly sunny skies and isolated showers possible.  Lows will be near 70 with highs in the lower 80s.  South to southeasterly winds are expected.
