Blustery change a coming

Although it's still a balmy 80ish and it's nearly noontime, the weather should change considerably over the next 12-24 hours. A quick check showed that San Antonio and Austin are still in the 70s. However, El Paso, way out in West Texas is already registering 48 degrees. That's enough to get the lumbritas going in the Gateway City.

This is your chance to actually wear some sweaters, windbreakers and assorted chaquetas. I wouldn't necessarily suggest scarfs and earmuffs but if you keep your eyes open, you might even spot a few people wearing those. Those would be the Laredoans who classify themselves as "friolentos/friolentas". Yes, these are the same people who want to AC turned down when it's 105 degrees outside. Anyway, enjoy the coming cold front and tune in to Heatwave if you want to see him do some gyrations as he explains the movement of assorted weather systems.
