Dry and Hot To Close Out August

It's certainly not for most of us but, out in the Hill Country near I-10, we're seeing a few isolated showers on the radar loop this early Thursday morning. As skies become mostly sunny, we'll feel the heat again today with highs near or slightly over 100. That summer breeze might bring some comfort as southerly winds get gusty again today.

Temps right now:

Yesterday was Austin's 13th triple digit day of the year. Clip for map of area high temps.

Today in Texas:

Southerly winds will pick up the pace, with sustained speeds around 10-20 mph and momentary gusts closer to 25 mph or so during the afternoon hours. Latest report:

Wednesday peak wind gusts:
30 mph  Lago Vista
29 mph  Austin
29 mph  Temple
28 mph  Georgetown
26 mph  Killeen
26 mph  Austin-Airport
25 mph  Burnet

While travelers heading into West Texas might encounter a few showers and storms, most of the Lone Star State will simply be hot and dry. A sprawling area of upper-level high pressure is dominating the middle of our country, and forecast models show it holding strong while spreading further east. It'll ensure a hotter-than-normal transition from August to September for many, including some in the northeast who've already enjoyed a taste of early fall. Back here at home, we'll have to put effort into keeping cool without much hope for change until maybe a week from today. Our medium range computer models show the high backing off enough to allow a disturbance into the Great Plains, and this system could deliver a weak cold front all the way down to the Gulf Coast. We'll keep an eye on it. Be sure to check back here and on the 7 Day Forecast for updates.

Keep cool and enjoy your day.

As skies become mostly sunny later this morning, we'll swelter again today with highs near or slightly over 100 around 4-5pm. That summer breeze might bring some comfort as southerly winds get gusty again today.
