Tropical Moisture On The Increase Thanks to Tropical Storm Dolly

Shortly after midnight, hurricane hunter aircraft reported strengthening of that disturbance in Gulf.  Say hello to TROPICAL STORM DOLLY! We'll watch as the center of DOLLY nears the coast of NE Mexico today then crosses on to land by tonight, leaving our area on the northernmost fringes of the storm's reach. Today's 20% rain chance rises to 30% tomorrow, and, although there will be some upper 90s, we think most temps might only peak in the mid 90s.

Earlier today Dolly looked disorganized, but slight strengthening was expected before landfall later today...so Hurricane Hunter aircraft was sent to investigate. Their afternoon flight showed the center of circulation starting to reform to the south of the previous position. The 1 PM update showed Dolly moving west at 12 mph, still expected to move inland overnight. Max sustained winds were at 50 mph, with stronger gusts. Little to no change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast.  

Here's a look at current temps here at home:
A holiday high of 101 yesterday marked Austin's 20th triple digit day of the year. Click for map of this morning's lows.

Futurecast shows spotty streamer showers arriving from the coast this afternoon, and more coming tomorrow. Our 20% rain chance nudges up to 30% by morning, and we expect a healthy mix of clouds and sun along with gusty south winds. We see lingering rain potential into Thursday (20% chance), too, then Friday and Saturday should simply be hot and dry.

A cold front crosses the country this weekend, arriving in Texas on Sunday with at least a slim rain chance. Unfortunately, we don't see much of a break from the sweltering heat until after the middle of September. Check back for updates here and on the 7 Day Forecast as we keep an eye out for relief.

Have a great rest of your Tuesday!

Tropical Moisture On The Increase Thanks To Tropical Storm Dolly

Right around midnight, hurricane hunter aircraft reported winds strong enough to make the disturbance in the gulf a bona fide tropical cyclone. Say hello to TROPICAL STORM DOLLY. Dolly is move inland over Mexico tonight, and we'll remain on the outer fringes of the storm, so rain chances will remain slim. Today's 20% rain chance rises to 30% tomorrow, and we think temps might only peak in the mid 90s for many.

Earlier today Dolly looked disorganized, but slight strengthening was expected before landfall later today...so hurricane hunter aircraft was sent to investigate. Their afternoon flight showed the center of circulation starting to reform to the south of the previous position. The 1 PM update showed Dolly moving west at 12 mph, still expected to move inland overnight. Max sustained winds were at 50 mph, with stronger gusts. Little to no change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast.
