AUSTIN, Texas — Temperatures and moisture levels are going up this week.
Cloudy conditions will persist Monday night and keep temperatures relatively mild in the 50s.
Starting Tuesday, we are expecting morning clouds and about a 10% chance for some patchy drizzle, then only partial clearing for the afternoon with highs in the upper-70s to low-80s. This pattern will continue through the rest of the workweek, but then we look ahead to our next storm system over the weekend.
The models are not currently in agreement on the timing, but the general idea is that a Pacific cold front will move through Central Texas around late Saturday or Sunday. This front could bring not just the potential for rain, but possibly the chance for isolated strong storms. We are tracking a 30% chance for showers on Saturday and a 40% chance for showers and isolated storms on Sunday.
The KVUE Storm Team will watch this system carefully and will provide updates during our broadcasts and online.
Conditions are expected to partially clear and cool down late Sunday with afternoon highs dropping into the upper-60s. Next week should start fairly seasonal with afternoon highs in the lower-70s.
Mostly cloudy with patchy fog late possible. South-southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph.
Morning fog with an isolated shower possible then mostly cloudy and warmer. South wind at 5 to 15 mph, gusting up to 25 mph.
