Thursday, June 22nd, 2017


DANGEROUS HEAT

High temperatures today will be rivaling records in central Texas. The current record at Camp Maybry is 103 degrees set back in 2009, and we’ll be cutting it close… Possibly even tying or breaking that record. In addition to the temps, humidity is rising. Higher humidity will bring heat index values from 108 to 113 degrees. A heat advisory has been issued for Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Bell, Burnet, Caldwell, Fayette, Guadalupe, Hays, Lee, and Milam counties (that’s most of the DMA) from 1pm to 8pm today.


SUMMER COLD FRONT

A passing cold front this weekend will bring much needed rain and a welcomed cool down. High temperatures will fall into the lower 90s and possible even the upper 80s, which would break our 21 day streak of 90 degree temperature readings. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are likely Saturday and Sunday then a few could linger into Monday. Rain chances go down Tuesday through Thursday, but not completely as a stray shower or storm could still pop up in the afternoons. Rainfall totals by the middle of next week will be around .5-1”, and the majority of this moisture will accumulate Saturday through Monday.

Get ready for the next time we see rain. 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
