After a couple days of sunshine, we'll turn cloudy tonight and stay that way until Saturday morning. Along the way, we'll have scattered rain showers that could develop as early as pre-dawn Friday, moving out Friday afternoon. That paves the way for a dry weekend ahead.
For a change, we WON'T be flirting with freezing temps when this next round of precipitation moves into Central Texas. I'm forecasting Friday morning lows in the upper 30s to 40 degrees, so showers which could develop as early as 3 AM will fall in liquid form through the entire viewing area. We could see light rain through midday in the Hill Country, early afternoon in Austin, and late afternoon in the Plains. Rain totals will likely stay below 1/4", with the highest amounts to the north.
A cold front sweeps through early Saturday morning. This time, the air behind it isn't Arctic! So while morning lows Sunday and Monday will be around freezing, afternoon highs will be well into the 50s. Plan on a windy day Saturday with early clouds giving way to mostly sunny skies. Sunday looks sunny from start to finish.
ANOTHER ARCTIC BLAST:
Next week is looking mild and pleasant...enjoy it while you can! Computer models continue to hint at Arctic air breaking lose and heading toward Central Texas the weekend before Christmas. I've been watching the trend and the computer models seem to be backing off a little bit on the extent of the cold air...meaning highs in the 40s versus highs in the 30s looking likely behind the Arctic air mass. We'll keep you updated!
