Strong Cold Front Howls Across Texas Tonight

Under sunny skies, we're looking for a high around 80 for the last time in a while: a big fall cold front arrives late tonight through very early tomorrow, Halloween morning, with potential for brief, strong storms then a notably cooler feel of Fall for the weekend and beyond. Get ready to pull out jackets and blankets for trick-or-treat time!

Temps right now:

There's going to be just enough moisture back at play this afternoon for a slim 20% rain chance. Winds will be fairly light and coming from the east-southeast through midnight. At around that time, Futurecast shows a batch of showers and storms breaking out in the northern Hill Country ahead of the front. We'll call it a 30% chance for showers & storms where you are tonight.  This model keeps the heaviest rain west of I-35, where we need it the most and where it could actually do the most good for our lakes. But there's still plenty of time for the speed and direction of this pocket of storms to change. Any rain that falls will likely be brief, though there could be some isolated 1"+ totals:

The front itself will likely cross the Austin area around 2-6am then make it south of I-10 by sunrise. Breezy, cool northerly winds will pick up to about 15-20mph at times during the day. We expect skies to clear out, leaving lots of Halloween sunshine. As soon as we get past sunset, which is 6:44pm, temps will drop quickly for trick-or-treat time!

Halloween Night... Chilly winds will likely make the most impact on ghost and goblins as they take to the streets. We predict temps in the low 70s around 5pm falling to low 60s by 8pm to upper 50s by 10pm. Some suburbs could end up in bone-chilling 40s as early as midnight!

Hello, November... Our first morning of the new month will be a cold one, with widespread 40s across the area at daybreak Saturday. Super sunny skies make it look quite inviting outdoors, with temps rising fairly rapidly up to a high near 70. Sunday morning will also include mostly 40s then, as southerly winds return, temps will make it back to some mid to maybe upper 70s and clouds will start to fill back in our skies again. It's perfect timing, once again: moisture comes back from the Gulf then another strong cold front comes our way. And, with this one, the rain chance is looking fairly decent with odds up to 40% by Tuesday as the front arrives. Our first week of November looks active! Check back often for updates here and on the 7 Day Forecast.

Enjoy your Thursday.

Strong Cold Front Howls Across Texas Tonight

Clouds may fill our morning skies but we're heading into sunshine and very comfy 70s this afternoon. Look for a high around 80 for the last time in a while: a big fall cold front arrives very early tomorrow, Halloween morning, with potential for brief, strong storms then a notably cooler feel of Fall for the weekend and beyond. Get ready to pull out jackets and blankets for trick-or-treaters.
