I know we need the rain…including the moisture we received from our recent snow and ice events…but I’m getting pretty tired of mopping up muddy footprints all over the house!  Thankfully, after Tuesday, we’ll be drying out with significantly less rain expected for the remainder of the week.  We’ll also be warming up a bit each day…nothing too spectacular, but better than the 20s and 30s from last week.

Lows tonight, chilly once again with 30s and 40s across the panhandle and north Texas with 50s across south central Texas.  The Rio Grande Valley region will be the warmest tonight with lows dropping only into the 60s.  Tomorrow, highs will range from the 50s across north and central Texas with mid 60s and a few 70s along the coast and across far west Texas in the El Paso region.  I think I’d like to be there! Skies will remain cloudy until this current system moves east of the area on Tuesday…and even then, east Texas will remain cloudy to partly cloudy for much of the week ahead due to continued moisture advection across the region.  Central and western portions of the state will see the return of sunshine and mostly clear skies for the remainder of the work week.  For those of us that have been socked in with either snow or rain over the last week and recent days, it will be nice to dry out and see the sun once again!
