NICE DRY STRETCH
After a very active couple of weeks, we'll finally string together a series of sunny and dry days. Plan on sunshine through the week and into the first part of your weekend. By Sunday, we have more clouds creeping in. The early part of this week starts chilly. Today we'll begin our day in the 50s (grab an extra layer) and warming into the 70s. Typically we should be in the mid 80s this time of year. The cool down will be nice. We head back to the 80s as soon as tomorrow. Try and get outside this week if you can.
It won't be here for a while so it's safe for you to wash your car. I have clouds increasing Sunday, with a 30% chance of showers Monday. We may begin to see drizzle as early as Sunday but it looks like any actual rainfall may hold off until early next week. I'm keeping us with rain chances through Tuesday and maybe Wednesday of next week as well.
Lake Travis is at 102% while Lake Buchanan is at 94%. Combined storage is at 99%. Check the levels here: http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx
Today we have mold, grass and pecan. Those count range from low to moderate. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen
CINCO DE MAYO
If you have plans to celebrate on Thursday - the weather's looking fantastic! Plan on sunshine and a high of 86 by day, with temps dropping into the 70s during the evening under clear skies.
Chris Saldaña and Chrisdyann Uribe will be at Camp Mabry Saturday for the Touch-A-Truck event. Stop by and see them (and a KEYE-TV truck!) from 10am to 3pm. It will be mostly sunny and warm with a high of 84! For tickets: http://www.safeaustin.org/get-involved/events/touch-a-truck/
The Williamson Museum will host Pioneer Days on Saturday at Old Settlers Park. The weather looks great with sunshine and high clouds and a high of 84.
PECAN STREET FESTIVAL
This weekend's Pecan Street Festival is also looking good! Saturday will be dry, but Sunday we'll add extra clouds and perhaps some patchy drizzle here or there. Highs both days will be in the mid 80s.
Team KEYE is running the Sunshine Run to benefit Sunshine Camps on Sunday morning! Join us on Mother's Day at Auditorium Shores. Adela Uchida, Adam Hammons, Jordan Bontke and Chikage Windler will be running the 10K, but there's a 5K and Kids run too! We may see mostly cloudy skies Sunday morning with patchy drizzle not out of the question, but it doesn't look like actual "rain" at this point. Race temp around 68 degrees with southeast winds 5-10 mph. Info: http://austinsunshinerun.com/
