Weather overnight Upper 70s morning Mid 70s daytime Low 90s evening Upper 80s Your Forecast By Mary Wasson07/31/2014 06:18 PM A Rare July Cold Front... We are watching a rare, July cold front swing into Central Texas this evening with scattered showers and thunderstorms. They should stick around until about midnight and then expect things to dry out overnight. As with any thunderstorms, heavy downpours are possible so if you are planning to head out this evening, grab the umbrella. Thursday started with an overcast sky and muggy morning temperatures. The afternoon was quite cloudy but with a few rays of sunshine, temperatures warmed into the mid to upper 90s across the region. When you factored in the humidity as well, it felt like 105 in some spots!

Futurecast shows the cold front stalling out across the region late tonight and into the first half of the weekend. This will bring a slim (20%) rain and thunderstorm chance on both Friday and Saturday. Most of the heavy rain will stay to our east but we can't rule out an isolated storm with heavy downpours. Most rain totals will be between a trace to 0.25" of rain. Even if we don't see a lot of rain in the area, temperatures will be surprisingly cool for early August. The forecast for Austin on Friday is 92. If the high stays below 93 degrees, it will be the coolest start to August since 1989.
