Too Warm

We will be flirting with a record high today.  The warmest it's ever been on October 25 is 91 in 1992.  We will come very close with a forecast of 90.  However, I won't be surprised if the record is tied or surpassed.

This day dawned clear with only a few clouds east of I-35.  Low temperatures:


Right now:


Upper-level high pressure
 is dominant for Central Texas again today.  Look for a sunny day with all highs from the middle 80s (Hill Country) to the upper 80s/around 9i0.  The wind will come from the southwest this morning to a south wind for the afternoon at speeds under 10 mph.  The sky will be clear tonight.  Lows Sunday fall to the upper 50s to low 60s.

Tomorrow's forecast will include some cirrus clouds.  Otherwise, expect to have plenty of sun to blend with the cirrus. Maximum temperatures return to the middle 80s to near 90.  The sky will be clear tomorrow night followed by increasing clouds Monday morning.

A cold front will enter the area some time Tuesday or Tuesday night bringing our next chance of rain.  Another front arrives for Halloween.  At this time, it looks like the second front comes in dry but the models are in disagreement over this so, for now, rain is left out of the Halloween forecast ... subject to change.

Your 7 Day Forecast shows the cooler temperatures mid- to late-week.

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.

Highland Lakes Update...  Lake Travis has dropped about 1/4 foot in the past week. Currently, Lakes Travis & Buchanan combined are 34% full. With an elevation of 986.34', Lake Buchanan is only 2.64' away from its all-time record low from the 1950s. At 623.29', Lake Travis is just under 9' from its historical low.

Have a good day.
