Rain Is Done, Cool But Pleasant Weekend Ahead

Our rain-maker is well to the east now, bringing downpours to the S/SE U.S. overnight and Saturday.  As expected, the heaviest local totals were east of I-35...

Top 24 hour totals:

2.22" Smithville
1.97" Rosanky
1.38" Austin Airport
1.31" Elgin
1.28" Thorndale
1.25" Dale
1.07" Manor
1.06" Manchaca
1.03" Bastrop
0.93" Buda
0.86" Downtown Austin
0.80" Lockhart
0.75" San Marcos
0.62" Kyle
0.62" Taylor
0.59" Austin-Mabry
0.54" Hutto
0.52" Round Rock

Temps right now:


A lessening north breeze will keep it cool overnight with temps falling to the mid 40s Saturday morning.  Clouds will stick around through the morning hours, but will gradually break up Sat afternoon.  Highs will be in the upper 50s, a bit below the 62 degree average this time of year.

Clouds fill back in by Sunday morning, then clear out during the day.  Sunday starts cool in the mid and low 40s, then warms to the low 60s during the day.

Ahead of our next cold front, Monday will be a fairly warm day with plenty of sun and highs in the low 70s.  The front hits late Monday night / early Tuesday morning.  No rain is expected, but it will bring strong north winds gusting 20-30 mph, meaning a very high mountain cedar count is likely... beware!  Behind the front it will be cool, but not that cold for this time of year.  We'll probably see some upper 50s to near 60 at the warmest during the day Tuesday.

It warms back up as we near Christmas, with temps expected to reach 70 on Christmas Day.  If we reach the 70 degree mark, it will be just the 3rd Christmas of 70 or warmer since 1980.

Check out the 7 Day Forecast for details.

Winter Solstice... This Sunday, December 21st, marks the beginning of calendar (or astronomical) winter. It's known as the "shortest day of the year" by minutes of sunshine here in the Northern Hemisphere. Our days will soon be getting longer again.
