Gradual Warm Up

Wednesday morning started very cold with several locations dropping right at or below freezing.  The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport dropped to 32 degrees which is the new record for the day, it beat the old record of 37 set in 2007.  Also, this was ranked the second to latest freeze at ABIA for the spring season.  The latest freeze recorded was on April 17, 1999.  

Wednesday's coldest:
29 Elgin (Big Sandy Creek) 
30 Driftwood 4 SSE
30 Jollyville 2 SW
30 Jonestown (Big Sandy Creek)
31 Cedar Creek
31 Lago Vista (Cow Creek)
32 Manor (Gilleland Creek)
32 Rosanky

South winds and sunshine helped boost temperatures up into the upper 60s and low 70s in Central Texas.  Austin-Mabry reached 73 which is only 7 degrees below our April normal high of 80 degrees.



Ahead of our next disturbance on Thursday, the gulf moisture will fill in overnight leading to an overcast sky with a slim chance for some drizzle and a little fog.  Low temperatures will be much milder, only dropping into the low to mid 50s.  

Current temperatures:


The next upper-level trough will pass to the north of us giving us a low chance of rain Thursday and lasting through Friday morning. Futurecast shows another cold front arriving Friday morning but there won't be any cooling with it ... only a wind shift to the northeast.  Rain chances will be near 20% with totals along I-35 around 0.10" but higher totals are possible out in the Hill Country.  High temperatures will warm into the mid 70s. 

The amount of rain predicted is:

NOAA's 7 day rain outlook calls for possible 1/4 to 1/2 inch accumulations.

We will briefly dry out on Friday with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies and temperatures near 80 degrees.  Another chance of rain is in the Easter weekend forecast as a Pacific low gets embedded in the jet stream.  At this time, the chance of rain and storms will be a solid 20%.  However, forecast models have been going back and forth with a higher rain chance on Sunday verses Saturday.  Temperatures both days will range from the upper 70s to low 80s.  Easter Sunrise Sunday morning will be 6:58.
