Daytime temperatures will run a couple of degrees above the normal of 80 for the first half of the week before a trio of cold fronts pulls back the warmth a bit. Today's forecast looks mostly sunny and breezy with highs in the low 80s.
Grab your shades! Mostly clear skies will bring an abundance of brightness to the Lone Star State as we kick off the new week. And it was a bit chilly out there earlier at sunrise, with a metro low of 47 and even lower in the suburbs, marking our coldest of the week:
39 Lago Vista
39 Oak Hill
40 Cedar Creek
41 Austin Airport
The breeze is back from the south today and with a vengeance. Our forecast calls for sustained wind speeds around 10 to 15 mph with gusts near 20 mph tonight, and potentially even stronger tomorrow.
A few scattered clouds will probably show up in our early Tuesday skies before clearing out to another very sunny day.
The first of the three cold fronts is currently timed to arrive Wednesday afternoon with a minimal 20% rain chance. The front might even stall out nearby. We'll keep the slim 20% shot for showers going Thursday and Friday, too, as an upper-level disturbance sweeps over Texas and another cold front approaches from the west.
Cold front #2 drops in on Saturday and, as it looks now, it brings the next best chance for strong to severe storms to the area. It'll be windy for the third Saturday in a row, followed by a slight dip in temps. We're calling for daytime 70s both Saturday & Sunday.
The third cold front is slated to arrive on Monday without much fanfare. In all, NOAA's 7 day rain outlook shows some widespread 1" to 1.5" potential rain accumulations coming our way, mostly on Saturday.
