Spotty storms for Sunday as temperatures head close to 100 to finish summer

Forecast

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.

Sunday forecast

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.

Top 10 hottest September in progress

Mean average temperatures (averaging the highs and lows for the month) at Camp Mabry in Austin make this the tenth warmest start to the month from Sept. 1 through 17.
