Storm Threat Fading
Austin Area Storms:
It appears more and more likely that the Austin area may have dodged the severe threat. I can't rule out an isolated storm, but most of the action will remain north and east.
Cold Front Coming:
A cold front moves through during the evening shifting our winds to the north and taking away the instability that's made our area ripe for storms. The front won't necessarily bring cooler weather for Wednesday (we'll still be in the 90s) - but it will bring slightly less humid air for a day.
AM Clouds, PM Sun:
Our pattern of early morning fog/low clouds which burn off for afternoon sunshine will resume on Thursday into next week with southerly winds each day.
We're at 6 in a row now, a total of 7 this year. We could string together at least another week's worth of 90s. May averages 9 90+ days in Austin and for the year, we average 109.
Next Rain Chance:
It's a slim chance, but I've added a 10% possibility of a shower or storm - mainly for the Hill Country. We're currently 1.33" below average for May at Camp Mabry and 2.77" below average for the year.
