AUSTIN (KXAN) — Following a gorgeous Saturday with a high of 65° in Austin, south winds bring higher humidity and gray skies today. A few patches of drizzle are possible at times, but very little measurable rain is expected.
A Pacific front arriving late tonight now appears to pack the potential of a few quick showers and thunderstorms as it moves through. Temperatures do not drop behind this front on Monday, but will drop significantly behind a stronger cold front on Tuesday.
Gusty winds midweek behind that dry cold front are sure to cause spring allergy problems. Temperatures will drop significantly, with a freeze expected across the area on Thursday morning.
Last week’s soaking rain put a significant dent in drought conditions, removing soil drought in the Austin metro area and shunting severe drought conditions to only our far southeast counties.
