Monday, December 10th, 2018


COLD NIGHTS AHEAD

We're starting off the week with cold low temperatures in the low to mid 30s along and east of I-35 but much cooler (below freezing) in the Hill Country.

One more cold night is expected Monday night/Tuesday morning with temperatures very similar to what we're seeing this morning.


GRADUAL WARM-UP

Sunshine will dominate on Monday helping temperatures climb to the upper 50s in the afternoon. Clouds return late Tuesday, though I think we easily manage the low 60s. As winds switch out of the south and become breezy on Wednesday, we’ll close in on 70s degrees in the afternoon.


NEXT WEATHER-MAKER

It is looking less likely that we will see any rain in Central Texas on Wednesday or Thursday as our next storm system approaches, so I’ve taken rain out of the forecast. However, this area of low pressure will still make itself well-known.

Winds will switch out of the northwest on Thursday behind a cold front and will become very strong. Wind gusts could top 40 MPH by Thursday afternoon which will be very close to wind advisory criteria. Even though we have picked up 2-5” of rain in the last week, that rain is not being soaked up by any trees or grasses which have gone mostly dormant after early-Fall freezing temperatures. The combination of low humidity and strong winds will likely lead to at least elevated wildfire concerns with outdoor burning highly discouraged on Thursday.

Temperatures will fall back into the low 60s behind the front heading into next weekend.
