Fall Has Arrived! & Storms Likely Next Week!
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2015

Tuesday: 89, some spots at 90. Mostly sunny. A few more clouds by afternoon. Winds NE 5-10.
Wednesday-Friday: Dropping from 90 down to lower 80's, maybe even upper 70's on Friday! Cold front moving through by end of week. Rain chances substantial: 70%. Some spots may see 1-2" of rain by the weekend.
UPDATE FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER, ATLANTIC OPS.
Joaquin continues to cycle in and out of warmer waters and favorable shear environments. As of right now, it has downgraded, and is a Category-2 storm with winds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Most models now are in agreement and take it out to the Atlantic, completely avoiding the U.S. coastline. Several bands of rain continue to pound the eastern coastline due to the hurricane’s spin and a jet stream trough in the area. There is another disturbance further down towards the equator in the central Atlantic that only has a 20% chance of development, but it’s track is right into Cuba.

ACL WEEKEND TWO: WATCH OUT FOR RAIN!!!!
As of right now, it appears that the Second weekend of Austin City Limits, could be wet, or even a washout. I have been modest on the rain chances at 60% for both Thursday and Friday, and 30% on Saturday. We could easily see rain all three days. Models are trying to put 1.6-3” of rain over central Travis county. This will all come, as even cooler temperatures surge into the area.
MUCH MORE SEASONABLE THIS WEEK!
This week, we will see much cooler weather than the past few months. Granted, one or two days may reach as high as around 90, but that’s it, I believe. Probably seeing highs in the 80’s, with some towards the end of the week into the lower 80’s.
Boy, do we need the rain chances this week-rain has been hard to find over the past month, and thus the drought continues to worsen. Check out the current drought monitor, and let’s see how much rain we get this week, and how it may impact us.
