More Record Heat
Tuesday, January 26th, 2015
What a day! We hit 83 at Camp Mabry Tuesday, tying the record of 83 set in 1972. It was the warmest day since 84 on October 28th! And we're not done yet. While our friends in the Northeast dig out after a major winter storm, we'll be in short sleeves with a high of 82 - yet another record high!
FOR THE RECORD:
I'm forecasting a high Wednesday of 82 which would break the record of 79 set in 1970 at Camp Mabry. I think ABIA will reach 80, which will also break a record. The record is 78 set in 2013.
Cedar climbed back above 1000 grains per cubic meter for only the 5th time this season on Tuesday. Plan on more high cedar counts until Friday when our next rain chance arrives.
THURSDAY COLD FRONT:
Our record-setting temps will come to an end Thursday as a cold front drops in. I think we'll still be well above normal for highs that day. I'm forecasting a high of 73. Our normal high is 63 on the 29th. You'll really feel the cool air by Friday continuing into next week with highs only in the 50s.
Behind the cold front, moisture will begin to move in from a Pacific system. Friday we'll be cloudy with drizzle and showers developing late. Saturday could be a washout with periods of light to moderate rain all day. Sunday morning is looking wet with a drier trend Sunday afternoon and evening. When all is said and done, rain totals look like they'll land in the 1/2" to 1" range with some locally heavier amounts possible. There's even a slight chance of t-storms Saturday night.
