Front Brings Possible Rain This Week, Stays Hot Though

For the 2nd time this month, a substantial dip in the jet stream in the Great Lakes region brings a rare July front all the way down here.  On Monday it was stuck just north of Waco with some rain/storms there, ending in the evening before making it farther south.  Tuesday, the front stalls near Austin, more on that below.

Monday's temps were quite hot with most in the upper 90s to around 100, there were even a few low 100s!

At this hour:


Overnight will be mostly clear with some clouds building in by the morning with lows in the mid 70s.  The weak front drops south to around Austin in the afternoon, sparking some isolated to widely separated showers/storms.  We have the odds at 30%.  Despite the rain chance, it's hot with highs in the upper 90s, feeling like 100-103.

Futurecast shows less rain around here Wednesday.  That's because the front temporarily shifts northward at that point.  However, a southward push in the upper-level winds brings the front back for a 2nd time on Thursday to Thursday night, potentially pushing all the way down to near South Texas.  This means more possible rain/storms Thu-Fri, and maybe some high totals along the stalling front.

By the weekend, rain should end, but temps will be kept cooler than average for early August thanks to a NW upper-level wind flow.  See the 7 Day Forecast for full details.

Meteor Shower Builds... Stargazers noted at least five fireballs in the skies over New Mexico this past weekend, a sign that the annual Perseid Meteor Shower is already starting to show up. Experts at NASA say the peak will occur August 11th-13th with anywhere between 30-120 meteors per hour. Why such a range? A very bright full moon will likely make viewing tougher than in some years.

Front Brings Possible Rain Late-Week, Stays Hot Though

For the 2nd time this month, a substantial dip in the jet stream in the Great Lakes region brings a rare July front near us, and eventually to us.  On Monday it was stuck just north of Waco with some rain/storms there, ending in the evening before making it farther south.  Tuesday, the front stalls near Austin, more on that below.

Monday's temps were quite hot with most in the mid to upper 90s, although a few did reach 100+.



Overnight will be mostly clear with some clouds building in by the morning with lows in the mid to upper 70s.  The weak front drops south to around Austin in the afternoon, sparking some isolated to widely separated showers/storms.  The rain likely won't make it any farther south than San Marcos or New Braunfels.  Otherwise, it remains hot with highs in the upper 90s, feelike like low 100s.

Futurecast shows no rain around here Wednesday.  That's because the front temporarily shifts northward at that point.  However, a southward push in the upper-level winds brings the front all the way down to SA Thursday night.  This means possible rain/storms Thu night-Fri, and maybe some high totals along the stalling front.

By the weekend, rain should end, but temps will be kept cooler than average for early August thanks to a NW upper-level wind flow.  See the 7 Day Forecast for full details.
