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.
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.
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!
