Likley a reflection of increased Western Gulf storm activity:

LOL....when I saw that map I was thinking the same thing.
My guess, based on past El Nino winters...is they are thinking the active southern Jet, will roll more Pacific storms through the southwestern Gulf, not only lowering temps due to precip...but as you know each time a low goes by, it pulls cold air down it's western side. In the case of Texas of course, that cold will be modified.
