      COOL NIGHTS, WARM DAYS

      We’ve got a great weekend ahead with cool nights and warm days and low humidity. Whether you’re heading to ACL Fest, Oktoberfest, the Round Rock Chalk Walk, the Dime Box Black Bridge Festival or any of the multitude of outdoor events this weekend, the only recommendations I have: don’t forget the sunscreen and shades!

      Temps will start in the 50s and warm into the 80s with sunshine and high clouds on Saturday, then full sunshine on Sunday. It’s not until next week the heat and humidity creep back in.

      NOT DONE WITH NINETIES

      Our normal highs are in the mid 80s, but next week, we’ll see a string of days near or at 90 degrees with increasing humidity as well. If you like the fall feel, enjoy it while you can! Low temps starting Tuesday may be close to 70 again along with that muggy feel in the air.

      NEXT RAIN CHANCE

      A cold front drops through next Thursday and we could see a few showers ahead of and along it. Right now I’m targeting a 20% chance Wednesday and Thursday. If we see rain, it doesn’t look like much with average totals less than 1/3”. Behind that cold front, it’s looking like another great stretch of weather just in time for ACL Weekend 2!

      LAKE LEVELS

      The lakes are still inching up due to our recent rain. Lake Travis is at 101% with Lake Buchanan at 95%. Thursday’s combined storage rose to 98%. Check the levels here: http://hydromet.lcra.org/riverreport/report.aspx

      ALLERGY UPDATE

      Mold dropped into the moderate range with ragweed jumping to high on Friday. Fall elm was a trace. Get the latest allergy report from Allergy & Asthma Associates here: https://twitter.com/atxpollen

      UV INDEX

      The UV Index for Saturday will be 8 of 11 – Very High as the sun returns! 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

      AIR QUALITY FORECAST

      The air quality Saturday will drop from good down to moderate (ozone building up due to lighter winds). Check the Air Quality anytime here: https://airnow.gov/index.cfm?action=airnow.local_city&cityid=229

      WATCHING THE TROPICS

      In the Atlantic, major Hurricane Matthew is tracking through the Caribbean and could track very close to the East Coast. In the Pacific, there is a disturbance with a low chance of development.
