AUSTIN (KXAN) — After another cooler than normal start, we’re seeing temperatures rebound to near seasonal averages this afternoon despite the cloudiness.
A disturbance passing through the state will give us mainly cloudy skies through the afternoon and evening but little in the way of meaningful rain. Most rain trying to fall from the clouds this evening will evaporate before reaching the ground.
Temperatures will spike to the low 80s tomorrow ahead of a late day cold front that will significantly cool us down midweek (Wednesday’s highs will struggle to leave the 60s). Unfortunately, this front looks rain-free giving us more wind than needed moisture.
Morning low temperatures on Wednesday will be close to record lows — in the lower to middle 40s in Austin with middle to upper 30s in rural areas.
FIRST WARNING: Following our fourth hailstorm in four weeks, our next highest threat for thunderstorms appears to come late Friday into early Saturday. Forecasts at this time are trending wetter with the potential for widespread heavy rain and the potential for strong storms.
