Rain and Storms Overnight & Friday AM

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

Heavier rain and isolated t-storms will move through overnight with the timing for the heaviest most likely between midnight and 8 AM.  We have the potential to see more rain in this storm than we have all month!  (That doesn't say too much - we've only picked up .3" at Camp Mabry this December so far).

Forecast Rain Totals:
1-2" Possible along and east of Highway 77 in our Eastern Counties
Up to 1" east of I-35 and west of Highway 77
Around 1/2" for the Austin area
Less than 1/2" for the Hill Country
These totals are lower than I was thinking previously - because it's looking like the best moisture will be to our south and east this go-around.  And where we need it the most - The Lakes - is where the least rain is likely to fall.

The Weekend:
We'll be dry and seasonably cool all weekend with lows in the 40s and highs in the upper 50s/60 Saturday and low 60s Sunday under partly cloudy skies.  The Winter Solstice is Sunday at 5:03 PM. 

Christmas Week:
WARMTH returns.  It's now possible we could hit 70 on Monday and again on Christmas Day!  Our normal high for Christmas week is 61.

The Next Big Cold Front:
It looks like Christmas night heading into Day After Christmas morning a strong cold front could swing in, possibly knocking highs down to around 50 on Friday the 26th!  Stay tuned!


Friday: 57  Rain likely (90% chance) with isolated storms and possible heavy rain in the morning.  Totals could top 1" east of I-35 with less than 1" in the Austin area and even less in the Hill Country.  Afternoon clouds.  Winds: N 5-15  *Morning Low: 50
Saturday: 57 Partly cloudy.  Winds: N 5-10  *Morning Low: 48
Sunday: 63 Partly cloudy.  *Morning Low: 43
Monday: 70 Mostly sunny.  *Morning Low: 47
Tuesday: 65 Mostly sunny.  *Morning Low: 50
Christmas Eve Wednesday: 68 Sunny.  *Morning Low: 43
Christmas Day Thursday: 70 Mostly sunny to partly cloudy.  *Morning Low: 45
Day After Christmas Friday: 50 Partly cloudy & windy.  *Morning Low: 43

Seasons Greetings!
