Fog, Clouds & Drizzle
Monday, March 2nd, 2015
A DENSE FOG ADVISORY is in effect until 10 AM for Llano, Burnet, Williamson, Gillespie, Blanco, Travis, Hays, Bastrop, Caldwell, Milam, Lee and Fayette Counties. Visibilities could drop to near zero tonight!
Despite the fog, clouds and patchy drizzle/spotty showers we'll have, temps may hold nearly steady or even rise a bit overnight. It will still be dreary for your Tuesday, but temps should warm thanks to southerly winds. I'm forecasting highs in the mid 60s in Austin by late afternoon and a couple spots in the Western Hill Country as well as in our far eastern counties like Fayette could reach 70.
MORE ARCTIC AIR
The milder temps last through Wednesday morning, then an Arctic cold front brings us falling temps Wednesday afternoon. At the same time, there could be some scattered showers and even thunderstorms. As the cold air plunges south, there could still be some moisture remaining Wednesday night into Thursday morning. That could set the stage for rain turning over to sleet or freezing rain - most likely in the Hill Country and possibly into the I-35 corridor.
I wouldn't be surprised if Winter Weather Advisories are hoisted for Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. We'll have temps near or below freezing, light moisture and the potential for icy conditions - mainly on bridges and overpasses. Please stay tuned for details as we watch this next ice event. Highs may only manage upper 30s Thursday afternoon and we're likely to drop into the 20s by Friday morning. We should also dry out by then, so the biggest corridor of concern will be after midnight Wednesday and before 11 AM Thursday.
If you're planning to head to Rodeo Austin's annual kick-off event Friday at the Long Center - plan on wearing lots of layers! I'm forecasting a temp of 27 with wind chills in the upper teens to low 20s for the event which is scheduled from 6 to 9 AM.
IT'S MY PARK DAY
Thousands of volunteers will be heading to parks across Austin Saturday morning to help clean up and beautify them. The forecast? Partly cloudy and with temps in the upper 30s at 9 AM when the event starts...so bundle up! I'll be taking parts in the Dove Springs Playground clean-up along with several other KEYE staffers. If you'd like to volunteer your time, it's not too late to sign up: Here's a link to the clean-up sites and volunteers still needed: http://www.austinparks.org/multi-project-list.html?eventid=861
