The calendar may say October, but if you have stepped outside the past several days it sure has not felt like it. Temperatures this month have been several degrees above normal. In fact, Monday came close to the record high for Oct. 9.
Before front moved through, temperatures got into the 90s in Central Texas, with 60 and 70-degree temperatures behind the front. (Image below is from Monday afternoon.)
Many people stepped outside Tuesday morning, but not before digging through the closet for some of those long-sleeved shirts ... and sweatshirts (gasp!) or turtlenecks (okay, maybe it's not time for that just yet).
Temperatures in the Austin area were in the upper 50s and low 60s late Tuesday morning, and afternoon temperatures will only get up in the 70s. Combine that with north winds around 10 to 20 mph, dare I say it might feel a bit chilly around Austin.
Unfortunately, it looks like fall will just be Tuesday and Wednesday and summer clothes will be needed again as warmer air will start influencing our weather before the weekend. For a full look at the forecast, go here.
