Another round of scattered late-day showers

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Thursday will look and feel a lot like Wednesday as the low pressure system spinning to our south and west will still be close enough to produce another round of pop up showers and isolated thunderstorms. The majority of us will stay dry but a lucky few could pick up a few hundredths of an inch of rainfall.

High pressure scoots south into our region Friday into the weekend resulting in hot, dry and mainly sunny skies. Temperatures will flirt with 100 degrees across Central Texas, likely to reach the century mark Sunday. Heat index values will climb to between 103-107 degrees through the weekend courtesy of high heat and humidity.

By early next week, a boundary to our north will be a focus for more rain and thunderstorms. Significant rain chances start Monday and will continue through midweek. Afternoon highs will drop to the mid-90s, cooler than average for this time of year.

Stay with us as we monitor this potential shift in the weather pattern.

Top 10 Wettest July in Austin?

Camp Mabry is in the midst of one of the wettest July’s on record. If we receive 0.12″ more rainfall before the end of the month, that would cement July 2021 as the tenth wettest on record. If we do not receive any more rainfall this month, we would be relegated to eleventh place.

While there is a small rain chance midweek, it does not look like it will add up to too much. But something worth watching as we round out this rainy month.
