Near record heat ahead of strong, midweek cold front

Forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Morning clouds have been slow to burn off in the Austin metro, but sunshine will return and lead the city towards a record high for Monday.

  • October 25 record: Austin Camp Mabry – 91° set in 1992
  • October 25, 2021 forecast: Austin Camp Mabry – 93°
  • October 25 record: Austin Bergstrom – 92° set in 1950
  • October 25, 2021 forecast: Austin Bergstrom – 90°

Our wash, rinse, repeat forecast continues one more day through Tuesday with morning clouds and afternoon sunshine and highs well above average – in the upper 80s.

A strong cold front will bring widespread rain to Central Texas late Tuesday and spreading through the area Wednesday morning making for a wet commute. The quick moving nature of this rain should keep most rainfall amounts less than 1 inch.

A few strong or severe storms are possible late Tuesday night and through Wednesday morning, but the higher severe weather risk should be to our north.

By Wednesday afternoon the sun will return, it will be windy, less humid and noticeably cooler. Wind Advisories could potentially be issued on Wednesday with an elevated risk for fire weather.

Fall-like weather settles in for the rest of the week and into Halloween weekend! More treat, less trick in the forecast for Sunday evening!
