Dry & Hot Wed, Next Front With Rain Arrives Late Thu-Fri

We knew a rain-producing weak front would stall somewhere near Austin Tuesday.  It never made it south of Williamson county.  There, along with Burnet, Bell, and Milam counties, we saw some pretty meaty showers and storms.  They end in the evening and overnight will be quiet and dry.

Tuesday's top rain totals:
0.49"  Florence
0.36"  Thorndale
0.23"  Fort Hood
0.08"  Taylor
0.08"  Marble Falls

Tuesday's highs ranged from low 90s near the front to mid and upper 90s south of the front.

This hour:

The front heads northward Wednesday, leaving us hot and dry with plenty of sunshine and highs in the upper 90s to near 100.  Winds will be a bit breezy from the SSE.

A disturbance along with another cold front heads south Thursday, arriving in Austin late afternoon at the soonest, but possibly later at night.  Models are still trying to determine the timing.  Whenever it gets here, it will likely bring a line of downpours along it, as seen on Futurecast.

The front will likely stall near the region Fri and Sat, with more possible rain and a break from the heat.  Check out our model's rain prediction below...

Check the 7 Day Forecast for details on rain chances and how much we cool down.

Lakes Dropping... With less than one cubic foot per second inflow from the Pedernales River & Sandy Creek, our Highland Lakes are in desperate need for rain. Lake Travis has dropped two feet since July 1st. Lake Buchanan, meanwhile, is one foot higher than at this time last year...yet only six feet away from the all-time record low.

In The Atlantic... A lone storm is moving through the Central Atlantic with promise for growth. Although the Caribbean islands might be impacted by the weekend, nearly all computer models show this storm avoiding the Gulf of Mexico as it makes an expected right turn to the north. 

If you have a moment, I'd appreciate your vote for Austin's favorite weathercaster. Please share with your friends!

Dry & Hot Wed, Next Front With Rain Arrives Thu Night-Fri

A rain-producing weak front would stalled just north of Austin Tuesday.  South of it... nada.  Just high heat with highs in the upper 90s to low 100s.

This hour:

The front heads northward Wednesday, leaving us hot and dry with plenty of sunshine and highs again in the upper 90s to near 100.  Winds will be a bit breezy from the SSE.

A disturbance along with another cold front heads south Thursday, arriving in San Antonio around sunset at the soonest, but possibly later at night.  Models are still trying to determine the timing.  Whenever it gets here, it will likely bring a line of downpours along it, as seen on Futurecast.

The front will likely stall near the region Fri and Sat, with more possible rain and a break from the heat.  Check out our model's rain prediction below...

Thanks for stopping by!
