ANOTHER COLD NIGHT

High pressure remains anchored over our area, which means another clear, calm, cold (for October) night ahead. Temps will likely fall to around 50 in Austin, tying the morning low on Tuesday. We’ll see 40s through most of the ‘burbs and a smattering of mid to upper 30s again possible in the Hill Country on Wednesday morning.

WARMER FIRST, MORE HUMID LATER

We’ll enjoy low humidity for another day Wednesday, but with winds turning out of the south, we’ll see highs nudge back into the 80s. Humidity creeps up but remains tolerable on Thursday before turning just plain humid Friday. The humidity peaks on Saturday with dew points back in the sticky 70s, making it feel oppressive. Heat will also peak on Saturday with a high of 87 and heat index values in the low to mid 90s.

THE NEXT COLD FRONT

Our next cold front is likely overnight Saturday night into Sunday morning. If the front clears our area pre-dawn, we’ll likely see rain move out in time for most outdoor activities. It’s a close call, though. If you’re heading to the LIVESTRONG Challenge Sunday morning, be prepared for wet roads and a few lingering showers. Any showers or storms should be well south by the time the F1 Grand Prix is scheduled to start Sunday afternoon. With the front, we could see ½” to 1” of rain. Non-severe storms are possible. Behind the front, winds out of the north will pick up. We’ll also watch the humidity drop and bring a renewed feel of fall.
