Above Normal Temps, Small Rain Chances
Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014
Tropical Storm Dolly is expected to make landfall near Tampico, Mexico Tuesday night - far from Central Texas, but the tropical moisture associated with Dolly helped get some scattered showers and downpours going Tuesday afternoon and could do so again Wednesday afternoon. Best rain chances stay south of the Austin area. I'm keeping a 20% chance in Austin, 10% in Williamson County, and 30% chance of an afternoon shower in Blanco, Hays, and Caldwell Counties. Unfortunately, widespread rain is not likely and rain totals will generally be 1/4" or less unless you're lucky enough to get under a slow-moving downpour.
The best rain chances of the upcoming week could come Sunday - not even associated with the tropics. Instead, a cold front which is likely to stall before reaching us, could get close enough to trigger some scattered showers and storms Sunday - favoring our northern Counties - Burnet, Williamson and Milam. I've got a 30% rain chance and some computer models suggest up to 1/2" rain possible. Fingers crossed - we sure need it!
As for temperatures, it may be September, but it definitely feels like August! I've got upper 90s in your forecast 5 of the next 7 days. And Tuesday the 9th has potential for a possible triple digit high and maybe even a record temp! For now, I'm forecasting 99, but the record of 100 set in 1997 could be in jeopardy. Any relief? The Climate Prediction Center forecast through September 18th keeps a strong signal for above normal temps across Central Texas. Hang in there!
