Hello again from Victoria-Weather. We’re headed way down to far southern Texas for this mid-week forecast.
At 853PM, CT, Brownsville was reporting a temperature of 75 degrees with overcast skies. There was a steady onshore flow across the southern portion of Texas which was producing the mid level overcast. A broad upper level trough over the Rockies is helping to encourage the onshore flow, but Brownsville is far enough south that dramatic changes aren’t expected.
As surface troughing emerges in the northern Plains, the Gulf will open up a bit more. Expect a little bit of light rain in central Texas, but Brownsville along the Rio Grande in far southern Texas is too far to the south to get caught in the moist flow, and Brownsville will be overcast but dry tomorrow. The mean upper level trough will move into the Plains and will really start churning up showers and thunderstorms from Kansas to west Texas, and will pull enough cold air in the back side to produce snow. This more vigorous wave will also mean a better chance at some light rain in Brownsville, as a more moisture laden flow presses through south Texas. Of course, the richer flow will also be more southerly, and temperatures will start to climb behind those southerly winds.

Brownsville will get brushed by precipitation, but in general, they will be watching the mania unfold well to the north for the Holiday weekend. Here’s the satellite imagery of Texas tonight, showing some milky clouds down wind of the Gulf.
