Nearing Record Heat This Weekend, Cooler For Halloween

It's warming up... we measured mostly mid 80s on Friday, but a few reached the upper 80s. 

Right now:


Overnight will be clear with mild temps Sat AM bottoming out in the low 60s, but with sunny skies and Upper-level high pressure building overhead, it gets a bit hotter with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 Saturday (record is 91 in 1992).  We'll continue with more sun and upper 80s Sunday, and it remains quite warm all the way through Tuesday.

A weak front should bring a slight cool down Wednesday, and perhaps even a few spotty showers.  Then, a stronger front looks like it will arrive the night before Halloween, and that one will make it feel much more like the Halloween season.  Our early "stab" at the Halloween forecast is a mostly sunny and breezy day with a high near 80 with temps falling quickly during the evening thanks to the north breeze.

Drought Update...

Drought conditions have somewhat improved over parts of Central Texas according to this week's update of the Drought Monitor compared to a month ago. Austin's 2014 rain total of 28.39" so far is actually SLIGHTLY ahead...a small but noted surplus of 1/4 inch. Lake Travis has dropped about 1/4 foot in the past week. Currently, Lakes Travis & Buchanan combined are 34% full. With an elevation of 986.35', Lake Buchanan is only 2.65' away from its all-time record low from the 1950s. At 623.35', Lake Travis is 9.2' above its historical low.
