Cold Front Brings Showers, Then Chill

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Get ready!
A cold front drops through overnight bringing scattered showers (I'm putting in a 20% chance from midnight to 3 AM), then cooler temps.  Highs for Halloween may only reach low to mid 70s.  And though it may feel nice during the day, once the sun sets, you'll need an extra layer over that costume!

Hour By Hour Halloween - Sunny skies by day, clear skies by night.  Breezy North winds
8 AM: 58
NOON: 70
4 PM: 76
6 PM: 71
7 PM: 68
8 PM: 64
9 PM: 60
10 PM: 57
11 PM: 55

Then as winds settle down by Saturday morning, we'll see the coldest air of the season with 40s in the city and 30s in outlying areas!  Since COTA is out in a rural part of Travis County - it always gets much colder than Austin proper.  So I'm forecasting track temps around 40 to 41 degrees both Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8.  Gates open at 9 and it will probably still be in the low to mid 40s at that time.  Highs Saturday stay in the 60s with highs rebounding into the mid 70s on Sunday.

Time Change:
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 AM Sunday.  Set your clocks back an hour, change your smoke detector batteries & enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

Soggy Election Day:
Computer models continue to suggest another cold front pushes through Central Texas next week - either Tuesday or Tuesday into Wednesday.  Either way, rain chances are looking high and rain totals could reach 1 to 2" widespread with isolated heavier pockets. 

Tropics Tracker:
Tropical Storm Vance in the Pacific is likely to become Hurricane Vance.  We'll have to watch this system next week since it could enhance our rain chances here in Texas.
Hurricane Season ends November 30th.


Thursday Night: 58 Showers/isolated storms (20% chance) midnight to 3 AM, then decreasing clouds and turning cooler.  Winds: N 5-10 
Halloween Friday: 76 Mostly sunny and breezy.  North winds 10-15 with gusts 20+.  Cooling quickly Friday night under clear skies.
Saturday: 69 Cool sunshine.  *Morning Low: 45 (30s outlying areas)
Sunday: 76 Partly cloudy.  *Morning Low: 48 (30s outlying areas)
Monday: 79 Partly cloudy with a 10% chance of showers/storms late.  *Morning Low: 61
Election Day Tuesday: 75 Showers and storms likely (70% chance).  *Morning Low: 64
Wednesday: 70 Showers and storms likely (60% chance), especially in the morning.  *Morning Low: 57
Thursday: 72 Sunshine.  *Morning Low: 51
