Central Texas Warms Up, Nearing Ninety

It's feeling more and more like a typical Spring season across the Lone Star State, complete with warmth, humidity, and occasional storms. We'll enjoy lots of sun today with warm afternoon highs into the upper 80s to almost 90 degrees. Temps right now:

Our only travel concern? Some patchy fog that crept up from the coast:

For much of the day, our forecast calls for partly sunny skies but there might be a few storm clouds billowing up out west by late afternoon. A new storm system is overtaking the Western US, and it'll help send the West Texas dryline into the Hill Country tonight. Along that dryline, isolated strong to severe storms are expected to fire up. The most intense are expected to remain north and west of our area, as indicated by NOAA's SLIGHT RISK outlook, though we'll have to keep an eye on it. As Futurecast shows a few blips of green near the area tonight, our rain chance is 20% after sunset. And we'll keep the rain chance at 20% for tomorrow, too, as the tail of a weak cold front eases into the area by late afternoon or early evening.

Computer models hint at light accumulations, in general, though isolated downpours could amount to much more:

Conditions border on "HOT" this weekend, especially Saturday. Another large Pacific disturbance will slowly make it into the middle of the country by early next week, pushing a weak front into our area Sunday night/Monday morning with another storm chance. A slightly stronger cold front is on the docket for next Tuesday, with temps closer to normal by the middle of next week. Be sure to check back for updates on the extended forecast.

Wildflower Photos...  Pretty colors of the wildflower season can still be seen across the landscape of Central Texas. If you haven't already, take a moment to snap and send a wildflower picture of your own to txphotos@twcnews.com, post on our facebook page, or tweet @twcnewsaustin.  Please identify the location and anyone who is in the photo(s), then watch to see if your picture makes it on Time Warner Cable News.
