Storms, Fall Breeze with Cold Front Tonight

Northerly winds bring cool Autumnal air back to Texas, but we won't feel it until late tonight.  A very steamy morning gives way to the hottest afternoon we've endured in 15 days, with forecast highs in the low-mid 90s likely feeling more like upper 90s-low 100s. A 30% rain chance during the day rises to 50% by sunset.

Folks in the Panhandle are already feeling the impact of the front. Current temps:

Locally, it's quite muggy out there as clouds trap in some warmth and plentiful Gulf moisture. Right now:

After starting cloudy, we'll look for a hot sun/cloud mix by afternoon and what could be a few pop-up showers and storms. The better chance for rain will occur immediately ahead of the cold front. It's a good day to keep an eye on the radar:

The front will enter the picture from the northwest, so we expect the Hill Country to feel the first impact...maybe as soon as the afternoon rush hour. Futurecast shows a broken band or squall line of storms trying to form up ahead of the front..and there's a SLIGHT RISK some might go severe.  Right now, it appears the dynamics are going to be greatest south and east of Austin, and that's where our computer model currently projects the heaviest rain accumulations:

This rain event is expected to be brief, but may include some fairly heavy downpours and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning along with strong storm winds. We encourage you to be indoors anytime storms are in the area. It appears most of the rain will sweep south of I-10 by midnight, leaving a much more comfortable situation in the wake of the front. Northerly breezes will deliver notably drier air to the area. We'll start with a range of 60s, maybe even a few 50s in the Hills Friday morning:

Look forward to widespread 50s both Saturday and Sunday morning, followed by a fairly quick warm-up to low and mid 80s. Sunday temps might get slightly above 85 as warming southerly winds return. Another weak front tries to move into the area Monday with a slim rain chance, as seen on the 7 Day Forecast.

Austin City Limits Festival Weekend #1... The stage is set for some of the best weather we've had any year at ACL Fest!

FRIDAY: Lots of sunshine at Zilker Park with breezy north winds. Temps in the mid-upper 70s at noon rise to a high near 83 around 3-4pm, then fall back from upper 70s 6pm to near 70 by 10pm. Some might find it cool, especially after the 7:13pm sunset.

SATURDAY: Sunny and mild. Near 70 at noon to a high 83-85 by 3pm. Temps in the upper 70s 5pm drop to upper 60s by 10pm. Sunset is 7:12pm.

SUNDAY: Mostly sunny, warmer as south winds return. Temps near 75 at noon rise to a high 86 or so by 3pm. Temps fall back to near 79 by 8pm, low-mid 70s at 10pm. Sunset is 7:11pm.  Wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and have a great experience!

Longhorn Gameday... We've also got the Horns home conference opener against Baylor happening in Austin on Saturday.  At the 2:30pm kickoff, we're in for winning weather:  sunny skies with temps in the low 80s and a east-northeast wind 3-10 mph.  Hook 'em!

Enjoy your Thursday.
