Dry Streak Rolls On - 08/02/13

We've been counting our number of triple digit days (we're now at 18 this year), and now it looks like it's time to start counting another statistic: the number of dry days.  We're at 6 straight and as I search for rain I simply don't see anything!  A ridge of high pressure continues to hold off any rain chances.  For now, I'm going with a dry 7-day forecast and our next chance of rain (only 20% on Saturday, August 10th).  That said, I've actually seen some information suggesting we might not see rain until Sunday, August 18th - and even that's not a "good" chance.  With no rain and lots of sun, it's a forgone conclusion we'll keep on keepin' on with triple digit temps.  Sunday looks like our "coolest" day with a high of 100 - and there might be some areas that stay in the upper 90s that day.  Otherwise, what you see is what you get.

Climatologically speaking (that's a mouthful), August 2nd through 16th are the hottest on average for Austin with an average high of 98 and an average low of 75.  Looking at the days to come, I'm forecasting above average highs and lows throughout that stretch.

The remnants of Dorian and near the east coast of Florida and now have a 30% chance of redeveloping.  Meanwhile, in the Pacific, Gil has weakened to a Tropical Storm

Overnight: 77 Mainly Clear. Winds: SE/S 5-10
Saturday: 102 Mostly Sunny.  Winds: S 5-10
Saturday Night: 77 Clear Early, Patchy Fog/Clouds Late.  Winds: S 5-10
Sunday: 100 AM Clouds/Fog, PM Sunshine.  Winds: S 5-10

Have a great weekend!
