AUSTIN (KXAN) — KXAN viewers sent several beautiful weather photos to firstname.lastname@example.org Thursday night as evening showers were highlighted by the setting sun. The photo above was clearly the most spectacular, as the colder air created by the downpour created a literal hole in the cloud, as the shower was being framed by a rainbow.
The isolated late-day showers developed as a sea-breeze front blew cooler air in from the coast, clashing with very hot, humid air over the Austin metro area. The rain faded away quickly after sunset.
More sea breeze showers may develop Friday, and a low chance for showers or isolated thunderstorms will continue this weekend, but the heatwave is unlikely to break for most.
