Weather Forecast: Cooler-than-Norm for Now, Warmer Days Ahead

There’s some crisp April air in place across Central Texas, making it feel a bit more like late winter than early spring.

Today’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and afternoon highs in the low 60s at a time of year when 80 would be normal. No complaints!

Northeast winds are still a bit gusty out there but expected to diminish later on tonight. Under mostly clear to partly cloudy skies, we expect temps to drop to low 40s in the metro by sunrise, with rural and Hill Country neighborhoods dipping into the upper 30s. No freeze is expected.

We’re in for a gradual warm-up each afternoon ahead, with upper 60s on Wednesday then upper 70s come Thursday. Humidity will remain low until southerly winds return Thursday.

Clouds return in abundance by Thursday night ahead of our next cold front, and it looks like a weak one. Latest models show it arriving during the day on Friday with a 20 percent chance for mostly light showers.

A Pacific disturbance will swing another weak front through the region on Saturday with a slightly elevated 30 percent rain/storm chance.

Then conditions turn dry again for Sunday with notably warmer low to mid 80s.
