SUNNY STRETCH

We’re catching a break from storms the next couple days! And if you like low humidity, Thursday is your day. It will be crisp and cool in the morning and pleasantly warm in the afternoon. The heat cranks up on Friday when we have a shot at hitting 90. If we do, that would tie a record dating back to 1974! And it’s fitting – because this March will go down in the record books as the warmest March on record for Camp Mabry! (Following on the heels of the warmest February and warmest winter).

WEEKEND WEATHER ALERTS

Here we go again! I’m hoisting Weather Alerts for possible severe storms on Saturday afternoon/evening – best chance in the Hill Country and Sunday – best chance east of I-35. Either day could bring severe storms with hail/high winds the main threats. It had been looking like we could be in for some very heavy rain, but computer models are backing off on totals. I’m now thinking around 1” of rain possible for the weekend with heavier isolated totals in any of the strongest storms. Download our free CBS Austin WX Radar App and search hashtag #cbsaustinwx for updates, plus you can track the storms on our interactive radar here: http://bit.ly/cbsaustinwxradar

ALLERGY UPDATE

Oak was high with mold moderate. The rain likely helped push sycamore and cottonwood into the low category, with just a trace of elm, hackberry, willow, grass, birch, privet and mulberry. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen
