Final Fall Front Has Arrived

Just in time Halloween, our last day of meteorological Fall, a powerful cold front brings brief storms and cooler weather back to Central Texas. Breezy north winds and bright conditions will make today feel quite nice, with most high temps in the low to mid 70s this afternoon. Conditions turn go from cool for trick-or-treaters this evening to cold for the first sunrise of November.

Given the fact that it's been a very dry October, we were very happy to pick up some additions to our monthly rain totals. The heaviest fell west, as expected:

Current temps:

Click and wave goodbye to a map of yesterday's 80s.

The front arrived in Austin around 3am, and sustained winds will continue to pickup to near 15 mph at times this afternoon. Right now:

We've been trying to prepare you for a cool Halloween night! After enjoying 60s & 70s during the day, we expect a quick drop in temperatures after the 6:44pm sunset. Our latest forecast model indicates upper 60s at 6pm to mid 60s by 7pm to near 60 by 9pm, falling into 50s by 10pm to potential 40s as soon as midnight..and that's all in the metro. Rural/suburban areas will get even colder. Plan ahead! North winds will add an extra bite, with a potential "feels like" temperature in the 30s by daybreak tomorrow. We expect some low to mid 40s in town while notorious cold spots (mostly protected valleys) will drop into actual 30s. Protect any tender plants by pulling them indoors or covering them up.

Saturday looks bright and beautiful, and very mild compared to where we've been lately. Daytime temps won't even get out of the 60s for most. Southeast winds gradually return, bringing back more humidity and clouds during the day Sunday. After starting in the 40s once again, look for highs in the mid 70s. Some of the moisture heading our way will likely come from a tropical cyclone in the Pacific. That moisture + the impact of a cold front next Tuesday night/Wednesday morning looks to bring a very good rain chance to our area. In fact, much of Texas will see heavy rain through the middle of next week...a great way to start the new month! Check the 7 Day Forecast for full details.

Enjoy your Halloween and have a safe & happy weekend.
