Cold Front Signals Arrival of Calendar Fall

A weak cold front will push into Central Texas prior to tonight's Autumnal Equinox, which marks the arrival of calendar fall at 9:29 p.m. Appropriately, today will likely be the warmest of the week with highs near or slightly over 90. There's a low 20% chance for a few pop-up showers and storms then, as northerly winds usher in drier air through the night, temps drop comfortably into the 60s.

Temps right now:

At 5:30 a.m., the front was moving through Fort Hood and Belton. We expect it to continue sweeping southbound, arriving in Austin by mid-morning. Latest wind report:

Northeasterly breezes briefly get gusty, nearing 10-15 mph.

Futurecast shows scattered clouds following the front yet very little in the form of rainfall. Travelers heading west on I-10 might run into more impact today, then we'll look for good weather for hitting the roads most other days this week. At the coolest, our area could find many low to mid 60s especially Wednesday and Thursday morning, and there might be some 50s in a few of our notorious cold spots, mostly in protected valleys throughout the Hill Country.

Forecast lows for sunrise Tuesday:

High pressure will camp out west of Texas for a few more days then break down as the jet stream shifts once again. Our latest medium range models depict a disturbance moving from the Midwest towards the Southern Plains states by Thursday. This system shows potential for a bit of rain yet we'll have to see if enough moisture is available at that time. See the 7 Day Forecast for details and check back for updates.

Long Range Forecast... As the anticipated weak El Nino continues to develop in the Pacific, all meteorological indicators point to more drought relief across the Southwestern US. NOAA's latest 90 day outlook calls for cooler-than-normal and wetter-than-normal conditions in much of Texas, including our area, now through December.

Enjoy your Monday.

Cold Front Signals Arrival of Calendar Fall

A weak cold front will push into South Central Texas immediately prior to tonight's Autumnal Equinox, which marks the arrival of calendar fall at 9:29 p.m. Appropriately, today will likely be the warmest of the week with highs slightly over 90 ahead of the front. There's a low 20% chance for a few pop-up showers and storms then, as northerly winds usher in drier air through the night, temps drop comfortably into the 60s.

Temps right now:

At 5:30 a.m., the front was moving through Fort Hood and Belton. We expect it to accelerate southbound, arriving through the late morning to midday hours. Latest wind report:

Northeasterly breezes briefly get gusty, nearing 10-15 mph.

Futurecast shows scattered clouds following the front yet very little in the form of rainfall. Travelers heading west on I-10 might run into more impact today, then we'll look for good weather for hitting the roads most other days this week.
