Forecast trends drier for end of ACL; weak cold front moves in Sunday

As ACL Weekend 1 comes to an end, so do our rain chances for the extended forecast.

AUSTIN, Texas — Thankfully, the scattered showers and storms we tracked on Saturday remained isolated to the Hill Country and did not impact ACL Fest.

Our next cold front moves through on Sunday and basically removes the rain chances from our forecast. Sunday is now mainly dry with only a 10% chance for an isolated shower and warm with a high near 91 degrees. The front could spark up a few isolated showers, but the highest chances will be for our eastern counties and closer to the Coastal Plains.

Behind the front, we don't get a cooldown but we do get enough of a drop in humidity to give us some cool mornings in the 60s. A ridge of high pressure builds into Central Texas for the extended forecast period. 

Next week also looks completely dry with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. An early look at ACL Weekend 2 shows a dry forecast with highs near 90!

While ACL festival's motto may be, "The festival takes place rain or shine," a City official told KVUE's partners at the Austin American-Statesman that they will closely be monitoring the weather and will communicate with fest-goers of any potential weather impacts in coordination with ACL organizers. If a weather event impacts attendees' safety, messaging will appear on the festival's video screens on-site and via loudspeakers, mobile alerts through its app and via posts on social media. Staff and security will also direct patrons where to go.

The KVUE Storm Team will continue to closely monitor this developing forecast. In the meantime, the extended forecast can be found below:
