A Little Cooler This Morning...Warm Afternoon
90-Degree Streak Rolls On:
We have now reached 90 or above 7 straight days, and we've hit 90 a total of 8 days so far this year. There's no let-up in sight. Our average high is now 88, so we're not going to be in record territory, but we will be feeling more like June through the next 7 days. May averages 9 90+ days.
Searching for Rain:
We need it! Camp Mabry is now 1.49" below average for the month and 2.93" below average for the year. Our only rain chances are small ones. Late Friday, we could have some isolated storms mainly out in the Hill Country and late Wednesday, we might get a few storms closer to the Austin area. For now, I'm going with only a 10% chance.
Memorial Day Weekend:
The holiday weekend is looking hot and dry with breezy southerly winds each day. We'll wake up to clouds and patchy fog then see sunshine develop each afternoon.
