Get ready to feel some heat across Central Texas this week as temperatures run warmer than normal through at least Friday.
Monday’s forecast calls for a mostly sunny afternoon and top temps in the upper 80s.
Southeasterly winds start to bring moisture from the Gulf of Mexico back into the region and it’ll result in more clouds and humidity. Skies are expected to be mostly cloudy for our Tuesday with highs in the mid 80s.
Upper-level energy from the west will flow over Texas by midweek, presenting a threat of severe storms especially on Wednesday. Computer models show dryline-induced storms developing in the Hill Country as soon as Tuesday night, then a bigger round of storms is expected to blossom out west on Wednesday and move towards I-35.
For now, it’s a 50 percent rain/storm chance on Wednesday afternoon, including the chance for briefly heavy downpours, strong winds, and possible hail.
A Pacific cold front arrives early Thursday without much fanfare, and we’re still calling for mid 80s then.
Temps on Friday might even reach low to mid 90s before a notably stronger cold front moves through the Lone Star State. For now, there is no mention of rain with that front.
We’re planning for seasonable daytime low 80s this coming weekend, with cool morning 50s and 60s.
