Welcome to what's arguably the most comfortable time of year in Central Texas! Thanks to this week's cold front, the day starts with cool 50s and 60s and will only end up in the upper 70s as the warmest. Get out there and enjoy it while these conditions last.
That breeze from the north offers low humidity levels and that means lots of comfort -- what a difference!
At sunrise, we enjoyed the coolest temps in Austin since May 7th with an official metro low of 61. At the Airport, the low was 60. Some of the coolest in the area? 53 at Temple to 55 Fredericksburg.
Clouds will thicken up in our skies again tonight as moisture from both the Gulf and Pacific streams into the Lone Star State. Most notably, the leftovers of TROPICAL STORM SERGIO are still on track to arrive across North Texas by Saturday, but moisture from this decaying storm will be in the picture starting today and will simply increase between now and the early weekend. As a result, we should plan for a fairly cloudy weekend that will be wet at times. It'll be our sixth weekend in a row with rain around!
We're going with a 30% chance for showers & storms on Saturday, and we think it'll start mostly west of I-35 in the Texas Hill Country. Then, a potent cold front is scheduled to arrive during the day on Sunday, and it brings a slightly better 50% rain/storm chance during the day, followed by notably cooler breezes from the north. As of right now, it appears the cooler air will arrive in Austin during the middle to late afternoon.
A cool rain could continue into early next week, with Monday temps only in the 40s & 50s. Tuesday looks even cooler by a few degrees, with widespread morning 40s possible. The rain chance continues until the middle of next week.
