AUSTIN (KXAN) — Overnight will be dry with scattered clouds. Overnight lows drop into the low 70s by Sunday morning.
Sunday will be hot again as temperatures approach 100 in some of our hottest neighborhoods. A mix of sun and clouds will be what most of us see, but a few stray storms or downpours could form again during the afternoon and early evening.
In Depth: Late year triple digit heat
Our chance at triple digits is even higher on Monday.
Only 10 separate years have had temperatures reach 100 degrees or hotter after Sept. 15 since record keeping in the Austin area began in 1897. Only six other Septembers have had more 100s than we’ve had this year so far — which is five.
Cold front still on the way
We’re still anticipating the arrival of a cold front late Tuesday into Wednesday. While a temperature and humidity drop looks likely, rain coverage looks scattered at best.
Astronomical fall begins Wednesday at 2:21 p.m. Meteorological fall, of course, already began on September 1st.
