AUSTIN (KXAN) — Other than varying cloud cover and a slight wobble in our temperatures, this week’s weather pattern looks fairly quiet (and pleasant!)

Today will feature a mix of sunshine and clouds as moisture from Hurricane Orlene continues to stream northeast into our area. Although you’ll notice a little less blue sky, you won’t notice any rain as the Pacific moisture is enough to throw a few clouds at us but not enough to spark showers.

Afternoon highs will hover just above average through the week with most of us topping out in the upper 80s to low 90s. A slight bump in humidity late week will help keep overnight lows a few degrees warmer, most of us waking up to mid-60s by Friday.

A weak cold front has eyes on the state Friday into Saturday, but confidence is low as to whether this front will make it all the way through our area. For now, plan on dry skies and tolerable temps for the first weekend of the Austin City Limits Music Festival.
