Weather evening Upper 90s overnight Low 80s morning Mid 70s daytime Near 100 Your Forecast By Dan Robertson08/22/2014 12:07 PM Sweltering Final Weekend of Summer BreakWe've endured the hottest stretch of weather so far this year during the past seven days, and the streak of sizzling isn't done yet! Plan on hitting 100 or hotter each afternoon through next week, the first week of the new school year for most. A weak front might come to the rescue as soon as Thursday.Temps right now:Click for map of this morning's lows & yesterday's highs...marking Austin's 14th 100+ day of 2014..A sprawling area of high pressure currently extends from Texas all the way up towards New England with above normal heat for the weekend. The storm track continues to circle around this area of high pressure, with downpours possible in places like Cheyenne, WY, to Minneapolis, MN. The closest rain to our area? You'll likely have to drive way out into West Texas. That having been said, a few spotty showers might also show up along the coast but aren't expected to last long. Here at home, Futurecast shows morning clouds giving way to brilliant afternoon sunshine. The pattern slowly shifts by the middle of next week, when a new disturbance crosses the Rockies and tries to send a front all the way down into Texas. As of now, our rain chances pick up again for Thursday and Friday as seen on the 7 Day Forecast.Drought Monitor... It's been 34 days since the record rains of middle July, and you can see the result on many area lawns. Austin's received only .05" of rain this month, which is indeed our typical driest month of the year. Lake Travis has dropped 2.6' since August began.Triangle In The Sky... The three brightest objects in the night sky will put on a show this weekend. The moon, Jupiter, and Venus will come together in what we call a "convergence", forming a stellar triangle in the sky early Saturday morning. They were getting close this morning, as seen in these fantastic views from Iran. Tomorrow's sunrise happens at 7:03a.m. We recommend you get out around 5:30-6:30 and simply look east. Check out this sky chart for more, and enjoy the view!Keep cool & have a wonderful weekend.
