AUSTIN (KXAN) — Light, scattered rain showers are likely to continue overnight into the early morning hours Sunday. Accumulations will be minimal (<0.25″) but will make for a wet night.
Sunday will start with fog, pockets of light drizzle and cloudy skies. But throughout the afternoon, sunshine takes over and highs will warm into the mid-70s — more than 10° warmer than average for this time of year.
We’ll start the new work week with mostly sunny skies and temps in the 70s. Cloud cover will be on the increase late Monday ahead of our next storm system. This Pacific storm will pass to our north but will send down a cold front to our area, helping to trigger scattered showers and storms on Tuesday. Afternoon highs will return to the 60s for the majority of us Tuesday afternoon.
Come midweek, another storm will move into the state with increasing cloud cover expected late Wednesday, storms and showers Thursday, and lingering rain early Friday. The Pacific cold front tagging along with this system will move in late Thursday, dropping temps to near average in the low 60s on Friday.
High pressure builds in for the weekend leaving us dry, sunny and warmer Saturday and Sunday.
