Forecast: Weekend rain chances; cooling down next week

Here are the latest updates from the KVUE Storm Team.

AUSTIN, Texas — We've made it to Friday! While the workweek is ending, our warm and muggy conditions continue.

Expect a similar day as the past few. We'll start with temperatures in the 60s areawide with elevated dew points. Patchy fog and light drizzle will once again be possible for the morning. This will lead to another warm and humid afternoon with partly sunny skies and highs around 80 degrees.

We'll start the weekend with humid conditions and above-average temperatures as we track a weak cold front. This front arrives late Saturday, so expect afternoon highs to still peak near 80. Scattered showers and a few storms will be possible ahead of the front with our highest rain chances overnight into Sunday morning. We are not expecting any severe weather with this system.

This front will not provide a significant cooldown, but it will help drop temperatures into the lower 70s for Sunday. Any showers on Sunday morning should hopefully clear out by the afternoon.

Temperatures and humidity rebound for the beginning of next week, but it will be short-lived as a stronger cold front arrives late Tuesday. This front will bring the potential for scattered showers and storms to Central Texas, along with a quick cooldown with afternoon highs possibly returning to the 60s or even upper 50s for the back half of the workweek.

While the severe weather threat here in Central Texas is currently low with the passage of this system, areas to our north – including the Dallas-Fort Worth region – could be impacted by strong storms.

We'll continue to monitor this closely and provide updates over the coming days.

Mostly cloudy and warm with patchy fog. A few light showers or drizzle possible. Calm wind.
