After a messy weekend start, Sunday certainly turned out nice for us. Now, another front is knocking on the door for tomorrow which means a cloudy and wet Tuesday. Here’s the current surface analysis and you can see the cold front that is already moving across Texas:

Cold Front on the Way Tomorrow

The front is not particularly strong, but today we will juice the atmosphere ahead of it. That being said, finding more than half an inch of rain overnight and into tomorrow will be tough even though I never rule out an isolated thunderstorm with a good downpour! Here’s the front tomorrow morning:

Front Tomorrow

The red area for strong storms is well north of us, but I’d plan on a slower commute tomorrow morning. Then the front moves through by Tuesday evening and that leaves us with this Wednesday set up:

Clear and crisp like a fresh margarita for Cinco de Mayo!

Wednesday’s forecast

If you are a lunch fiesta person, you’ll love an outdoor patio at noon Wednesday when the temperature will be in the low 70s and dew point temperatures around 60° (which is to say: very low humidity!). Evening festivities look super as well with temps around 76° at 7 p.m., falling to 68° by 11 p.m. If you’ve been holding back for the perfect Cinco de Mayo weather, this is your day!
