AUSTIN (KXAN) — Another Pacific cold front comes across the area overnight, arriving in the metro area around 3 to 5 a.m. The front dries out the air to give us a bright day Sunday. Most lows will range from 47 to 51. Highs warm to the mid 60s to around 70.
Breezy but nice weather is ahead for the Ascension Seton Austin Marathon Half Marathon and 5K tomorrow. Anticipate a 7 a.m. temperature in the low 50s with a northwest wind around 15mph with some gusts near 30 mph. The sky will be partly cloudy to mostly sunny. Temperaturs warm to the mid 50s by 9 a.m., around 60 by 11 a.m., then the mid to upper 60s by 1 p.m. Winds subside around 11am or so. KXAN is a proud sponsor of this event.
Another surge of colder air arrives late tomorrow night to Monday morning. Temperatures Monday will generally range from the upper 50s to low 60s. Colder air is in Tuesday's forecast with highs only in the upper 40s to low 50s. Lows will be in the mid/upper 30s to low 40s much of next week.
In the upper atmosphere a trough will be moving from off the coast of northern California to the southwest U.S. Monday leading to increasing rain chances Tuesday. A lower rain chance Wednesay will be followed by another good chance of rain Thursday. Low rain chances continue Friday and Saturday.
Friday became the hottest day ever recorded so early in the year when the afternoon high climbed to 91 degrees at Camp Mabry, breaking the previous record of 85 set in 1980. The high at the airport was 87, breaking the record of 83.
Prior to yesterday the earliest 91-degree high was on February 17, 1959. Austin has reached 90 degrees earlier in the year, on January 30, 1971, and February 10, 1954.
Have a great evening!
