Very Low Holiday Rain Chance, Better Shot Tomorrow

High heat continues to rule the weather headlines, with today's temps getting very close to 100 by 4pm and only a 10% chance for rain on you backyard BBQ. As a storm tries to come together in the Gulf of Mexico, we'll see a slightly better shot for showers in the next few days.

While you're out enjoying your holiday, we'll be keeping an eye to the south. Futurecast shows very isolated showers and storms trying to come up towards I-10 from the coast, so it's possible to get some rain here today but just not likely. The tropical entity in the Gulf is currently projected by a most of our computer models to make landfall in far northeast Mexico on Wednesday. As it approaches the coast tomorrow, Futurecast shows rain bands extending as far north as our area..though, again, with mostly hit-or-miss activity. We do anticipate thicker clouds at times during the next few days, which will help bring down temps a few degrees.

Through Wednesday, we expect strong southerly winds from the Gulf, with potential gusts around 25 mph. Sustained winds right now:

Another Gulf disturbance looks to brew up about a week from today, and could play a role in our early September weather. Stay tuned for updates here and on the 7 Day Forecast.

In Austin, we wrapped up August 2014 with a total of 17 triple digit days, bringing the 2014 hot count up to 19. An average high temp of 99.0 in the city is two degrees above normal, and an average low of 75.3 was 0.7 degrees warmer than normal. We only picked up 0.12" of rain in the metro all month, a deficit of 2.23". At the airport, no rain was measured (just a trace) and that puts us in a four way tie for driest August in Austin history.

Keep cool, and have a safe and enjoyable holiday!
