We hope you had a great weekend and stayed cool! We’ve got a rare summertime dip in the temperatures coming our way - I’d start making some outdoor plans for Tuesday when we expect the nice weather to arrive!

Tonight, will stay warm and humid with temperatures only dropping into the mid and upper 70s. The clouds thicken up too and we could see some light drizzle tonight/early Monday morning. We’ll see some sunshine throughout Monday afternoon and high temperatures will once again be in the mid to upper 90s with heat index values over 100 degrees.

Pre-cold front rain chances will be around Monday afternoon, for areas along and east of I-35, but it would just be a light shower or two. The better rain chance comes Monday evening as a cold front swings through the area. We will see some scattered showers and storms, and there is a low-end potential to bring some strong or severe storms through Central Texas. Our main concerns will be strong, damaging winds along the leading edge of the front, lightning, and maybe some change-size hail.

A slight chance for some lingering rain to start Tuesday, but most should be dry for the second day of the work-week. Temperatures won’t be drastically cooler, but highs Tuesday will only be in the 80s!! That’ll be the first day since June 7th that we’ve seen temperatures below 90 degrees. A swift return to southerly winds by Wednesday means temperatures will ramp up again and stay that way throughout the remainder of the 10 day forecast.

Also, the summer solstice is tonight at 10:32pm. That makes this Father’s Day Sunday the longest day of the year and starting tomorrow our days will gradually start getting shorter again all the way through the winter solstice.
