From Rusty Garrett:
Above normal weather continues for the foreseeable future as high pressure builds in over Central Texas. Overnight low temperatures remain nearly 10° above normal, only falling into the low and middle 60s. Some patchy fog may also be present on your drive into work Wednesday morning.
Afternoon highs Wednesday and Thursday reach the middle 80s with a few clouds lingering overhead. High pressure aloft builds into Central Texas Thursday into Friday, sending temperatures into the upper 80s for the upcoming weekend. High temperature records should remain safe, but forecast high temperatures will be within 4° of records. Highs cool off some early next week, but will still remain nearly 10° above average for Halloween and next Tuesday.
Central Texas' near-term rainfall deficit continues to grow as rain remains absent from the forecast through the end of the month. Come October 31st, Central Texas will have received less than 10% of normal rainfall for the month. Long range model data suggests our next chance of rain holds off until at least the middle of next week.
