RAIN UNLIKELY

Plan on mainly dry weather for the next week. There’s a small chance of a sea breeze shower to our south and east in the afternoons, but for now, it’s looking like they will not track far enough inland to reach Austin.

You can always download our free CBS Austin WX Radar App and search hashtag #cbsaustinwx for updates. Plus you can track any showers on our interactive radar here: http://bit.ly/cbsaustinwxradar

HOT AND DRY 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND

With rain mostly out of the equation, our focus will shift to heat. Temps should remain below 100, but we could have triple digit heat indices from Friday through the holiday weekend.
