Thursday Night Storm Risk


Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

We'll go from the feel of summer to the chill of fall in the next couple days.  Along the way, a cold front drops through bringing a chance for showers and storms - some of them could be strong to possibly severe.  There's a slight risk of severe for areas from North Austin through Williamson County west into Burnet and Llano points north.  High winds are the biggest concern, but small hail and heavy downpours are possible too.

Timing for the rain is looking like Thursday evening and night.  Earliest in the Hill Country, latest (closer to midnight) in our Eastern Zone.  How much rain?  Around 1/2" for most areas, but heavier pockets of 1-2" can't be ruled out, especially with any strong storms that develop.  Since the front may slow a bit as it pushes through Bastrop, Giddings and La Grange, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of the heaviest rain totals in those spots east of I-35.

Temps, meanwhile, are likely to soar into the mid 90s (heat index values could near 100) Thursday afternoon ahead of the front. We won't quite be in record territory - the record for Camp Mabry is 100 and for ABIA, it's 97.  Behind the front, temps drop into the 60s by Friday morning and rebound into the mid 80s Friday afternoon.  It will be breezy too, with north winds gusting 20 mph+ Friday bringing in that refreshing change.  By Saturday morning - we'll have lows in the 50s!

Whether it's ACL or football or any of the festivals going on in Central Texas this weekend, the weather won't hinder you!  Plan on cool, crisp mornings and pleasant mostly sunny afternoons with highs in the 80s.
