Anthony Domol: A foggy start, peeks of sun expected early afternoon

Locally dense fog is being seen early this Thursday morning across West Texas. Visibilities in some spots have been next to zero at times. Low clouds and pockets of fog will continue through mid-morning. Visibilities should be improved by around the noon hour.
This afternoon we expect some breaks for sun and temperatures rising into the middle 50s. There will be an increase in high clouds through the late morning period and eventually clouds will lower and thicken once again into the evening ahead of the next weather system we are tracking. Winds should remain light through the day and take on a southerly component as we go along.
Tonight cloudy conditions give rise to some scattered shower development in the overnight hours. Though a shower is possible for all of West Texas, current indications are for our eastern viewing area to have the best shot at a little wet weather.
An area of low pressure just off to our north will be developing as it moves eastward and the best concentration of organized rainfall will not occur until the weather system moves into East Texas. Some drizzle and fog are also possible for us along with the scattered shower into Friday morning. A mild overnight is in the forecast with lows near 50 degrees.
Any shower activity will quickly be shifting away from us during the afternoon hours. Some sunshine breaks out past the noon hour and warms us nicely into the lower and middle 60s.
Friday night skies clear and make way for lows to drop down into the lower 30s.
Bright sunshine on Saturday will quickly warm a cool start to the day. We look for the thermometer to make a run for the lower 60s.
As nice as Saturday is expected to be, Sunday gets even better. Sunny skies and very breezy winds from 20-25mph out of a southwesterly direction will push readings into the lower and mid 70s by day’s end. At most a few high clouds will float by from time to time.
Another weak cold front is projected to pass through early on Monday morning dropping temperatures into the lower and middle 30s by sunrise. Afternoon highs on Monday will move their way to the lower 60s under sunny conditions.
Beautiful weather is then predicted to take us into the mid-week period. Sunshine and lower 60s on Tuesday will be followed by a day in the middle 60s come Wednesday.
