WARMING UP TODAY
Happy Wednesday! You'll be feeling those temperatures climb this afternoon. That's after a chilly morning. Most of us will be starting our days off in the 60s this week so you may need to grab that long sleeve shirt for the kids. This afternoon we'll be warming up before our next dry cold front swings on in. Highs today will approach 90 with mostly sunny skies. Remember to lather up that sunscreen!
FEELING MORE LIKE FALL
A dry cold front will drop our temperatures again later this week. It looks to arrive tomorrow morning which will cool us down into the upper 70s and lower 80s. We'll have below normal highs from Thursday through the weekend. It should be very nice and a chance for you to get outside and enjoy Central Texas a bit. We'll keep our morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s early on. If you're heading to ACL weekend 1, get ready for a picture perfect weekend for music. Friday we top out near 80, Saturday we'll hit 83 and Sunday we climb to 85 -- you can't beat it.
The lakes are inching up again due to our recent rain. Lake Travis is back up to 100% with Lake Buchanan at 95%. Combined storage is 97%. Check the levels here: http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx
Mold spiked into the high range (thank the recent rain) and ragweed was moderate, with fall elm a trace. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen
The UV Index for Wednesday will be 8 of 11 – Very High as the sun retuns! Make sure you use sunscreen and sunglasses, especially between 10am and 2pm. Check the UV Index here: https://www.epa.gov/sunsafety/uv-index-1
Enjoy the week!
