Unseasonably Warm Stretch
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
Heat and humidity will be the rule rather than the exception for the rest of the week, with highs in the upper 80s to 90 the next 5 days! Along the way, I'm tracking 2 cold fronts. The first is a weak one that arrives late Thursday afternoon. Ahead of it, we might see a few morning showers (20% chance) and a couple stray afternoon showers (10% chance) - but most areas will likely be dry. What you will notice is a wind shift as winds turn from south in the morning to north in the late afternoon. I'm not expecting severe weather at this time if anything does develop.
Our next front now looks like it could get here Monday morning. Ahead of it, we'll have a better chance of showers and storms. There's a small chance (10-20%) for parts of the Hill Country to get some rain as early as Saturday night, but for the Austin area, our best bet is Sunday when I'm hoisting a 30% chance of showers and storms. Best chance will be in the afternoon and I do think some could be strong to severe. Right now, the severe risk looks like it will be just north of Austin and that could expand southward. Some leftover showers/isolated storms could extend into Monday morning mainly east of I-35 before an even bigger change.
That change: a shot of cooler air that could drop highs in the 70s by Wednesday and lows Wednesday morning in the 40s and 50s!
Until then, your AC will come in handy!
