SUNNY & LESS HUMID SATURDAY

So much for those storms! They came, they went and they left behind rain totals of less than 1/10” in most spots! That may not even be enough to alleviate our crazy pollen! Behind the cold front, cooler air will filter in overnight and with clear skies, we’ll wake up to temps in the 50s for a change. You’ll really notice the more comfortable humidity! By afternoon, will full sunshine, we’ll climb to above normal low 80s.

RECORD HEAT POSSIBLE SUNDAY

If we hit 90, we’ll tie the record high from 1939! Sunday will be noticeably hotter and more humid with morning clouds, then sunshine. Late afternoon/evening we’ll see more clouds develop and a very small chance of a stray shower. The Storm Prediction Center has Travis County points north in a Marginal Severe Risk…but at this point, I’m only putting in a 10% rain chance.

DELL TECHNOLOGIES MATCH PLAY

It will be a great weekend for spectators and players alike as far as the weather’s concerned! Two things to keep in mind: it’s going to be sunny…so sunscreen and sunglasses will come in handy. It’s going to be warm Saturday, and we’ll call it hot on Sunday. Make sure you stay hydrated and find some shade if you can.

BEST BET FOR RAIN

Storms develop late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and some could be strong and produce some heavy rain. I wouldn’t be surprised by 1-2” of rain – especially in our eastern counties. Stay tuned!

ALLERGY UPDATE

The spring pollen is downright gross out there! Thursday’s wind swept pollen all over Central Texas. The count Friday morning was very high for Oak, moderate for mold, sycamore, cottonwood, elm and willow, and low for birch, poplar, ash and grass. We also had a trace of privet, hackberry and mulberry. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen

LAKE LEVELS

Lake Travis is at 100% with Lake Buchanan at 95%. Friday’s combined lake level was 98%. Check the levels here: http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx

UV INDEX

The UV Index for Saturday will be 9 of 11 – very high. Don’t forget the sunscreen! Check the UV Index here: https://www.epa.gov/sunsafety/uv-index-1
