Hanging on to some cloudiness for the rest of the day
Believe it or not, a weak cold front is moving through Central Texas right now! The reason you probably won’t be able to tell? Clouds are still hanging around! We’re expecting to see lingering clouds this afternoon but some spots may see peeks of sunshine here and there. Highs today will only warm into the mid-50s with some low 50s depending on if sunshine gets through the clouds or not.. Overnight temperatures should dip into the low-to-mid 30s by daybreak with the best chances of freezing temperatures coming for the northern half of our area. The morning chill should help to keep temperatures a bit cooler tomorrow morning so we’ll only see highs warm into the low-to-mid 50s.
Although we really don’t have any more appreciable rain chances for the next about week, there is a chance of rain late Thursday into Friday as a weak cold front moves in. Since Thursday’s cold front will swing through at night and without a ton of moisture in place, we’re capping rain chances near 20%-30%. Isolated showers, if they happen, shouldn’t bring us anymore than a tenth-inch of rain. Thursday night’s front won’t bring us a huge temperature change either. We are expecting highs Thursday in the mid-50s to stay generally in the mid-50s Friday, but we should drop close to freezing Saturday morning. North winds Friday should quickly turn around this weekend and highs will warm back into the mid-to-upper 60s! Our next best chance of rain comes in the middle of next week as a storm system potentially develops across Texas. With a storm system developing close to home, it may bring a higher chance of beneficial rain but until we’re able to fine-tune the specifics, we’re capping rain chances at 30% for now.
