AUSTIN (KXAN) — Pleasant early-autumn weather continues this week and through the first weekend of Austin City Limits Music Festival, though our current dry spell is concerning during what is typically our second-wettest month of the year.

Camp Mabry has now gone 26 consecutive days without measurable rainfall, and we are expecting to go another week or more with dry conditions across the area.

Aside from the worsening drought conditions, very pleasant weather continues through the 7-day forecast. We will enjoy cool, comfortable mornings and warm, sunny days with relatively low humidity. A reinforcing dry cool front arrives Friday night, bumping high temperatures back into the 80s for the weekend.

The weather at the Cotton Bowl will also be very pleasant — and dry — for the Texas football game on Saturday.

One downside of the warm afternoon sunshine and light winds are air pollution problems. An Ozone Action Day has been declared on Tuesday for the 8th-consecutive day. Those with respiratory conditions may consider limiting time and exertion outdoors.
