From Rusty Garrett:
A Heat Advisory remains in effect until 8pm Friday for most of Central Texas. The heat index, or feels like temperature, should be near or above 105°! Make sure to stay very well hydrated and cool!
Our typical summer weather pattern for Central Texas will continue through at least Saturday, with highs in the upper 90s and low 100s.
Changes will arrive to Central Texas beginning this weekend as a frontal boundary makes it into North & Central Texas. Expect an increase in cloud cover and the chance for rain and storms. Temperatures will also be a little lower, with highs mainly in the mid to upper 90s and overnight lows in the mid 70s. Rain and storm chances over the weekend are expected to be at 20% to 30%. Heavy downpours, gusty winds, and frequent lightning will be the main threats from any storms that are able to develop.
An unsettled weather pattern with slightly below average temperatures should persist through much of next week as July becomes August. The added cloud cover and chance for rain will also likely keep afternoon temperatures lower in the low to mid 90s. Rain and storm chances should vary between 20% and 40%.
