Rare Summer Front Brings Possible Rain Thursday

Another seasonably warm day Wednesday ahead of a welcomed front expected to arrive late-day Thursday.  As uncomfortable as it was, we avoided the 100s yet again with highs in the mid and upper 90s.



Austin only has 2 days of 100+ this year.  To compare... by the end of July 2013 there were 16 days of 100+, by the end of July 2012 there were 11, and by the end of July 2011 there were 47!

At this hour:


After very few clouds Wednesday, cloud cover builds up by Thursday morning with lows in the mid 70s.  We head for the mid 90s in the afternoon, but a cold front is expected to arrive during the late afternoon to early evening hours.  With it comes a decent 40% chance for rain and storms, as seen on Futurecast.

The front will very slowly head southward overnight Thu night to Friday morning, with more possible rain along it.  By Friday afternoon it may be too far south to bring any more rain to our area.  Assuming it stays south this weekend, we'll be dry with temps no hotter than the mid 90s... not bad for August!

There will probably be a wide range in rain totals.  We're thinking a general average of 0.25" to 0.50", but there certainly could be some pockets of 1-2"+, especially east and south of Austin.  Here's what our latest model run shows:

Check out the 7 Day Forecast for more details.  You'll probably be happy to find no 100s on it.

In The Atlantic... The wait continues for something to develop in the Central Atlantic.  On Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center slightly lowered the odds for development.  Nearly all computer models show this storm avoiding the Gulf of Mexico as it makes an expected right turn to the north. 

A contest is going on to find Austin's favorite meteorologist.  If you have a moment, I'd appreciate your vote for Austin's favorite weathercaster. Please share with your friends, thanks!

Rare Summer Front Brings Possible Storms Thursday Night

Another seasonably warm day Wednesday ahead of a welcomed front expected to arrive Thursday night.  As uncomfortable as it was, we avoided the 100s in SA yet again with highs in the mid and upper 90s for most areas, although some did manage to reach 100.


At this hour:


After very few clouds Wednesday, cloud cover builds up by Thursday morning with lows in the mid to upper 70s.  We head for the mid to upper 90s in the afternoon, but a cold front is expected to arrive after sunset.  With it comes a decent 40% chance for rain and storms Thursday night, as seen on Futurecast.

The front will very slowly head southward Friday, with more possible rain along it.  By late Friday it is expected to stall near or just south of our area, so slight rain chances linger into Saturday. 

There will probably be a wide range in rain totals.  We're thinking a general average of 0.25" to 0.75", but there certainly could be some pockets of 1-2"+.  Here's what our latest model run shows:

Check out the 7 Day Forecast for more details.  You'll probably be happy to find no 100s on it.
