From Rusty Garrett:
If you're eagerly anticipating cooler weather to arrive, you may have to wait a while. High clouds remain overhead Tuesday as high temperatures, once again, climb into the lower and middle 80s. Overnight lows remain in the low and middle 60s.
By the middle of the week, expect a bit more sunshine. Unfortunately, that means high temperatures climb even higher and stay nearly 10° above average through the weekend.
Although Central Texas has seen some light rain Sunday and Monday, it hasn't done much to cut into our monthly rainfall deficit. By the end of October, we should have received 3.9" of rainfall. In 2016, Central Texas has seen only .22" of rain. That number will likely not grow as long range model data suggests our next best chance of rain may not be until November.
