Unseasonably Cool August Weekend

Friday, August 1st, 2014

It doesn't get much better than early August and highs in the low 90s!  If you've got weekend plans, Mother Nature is gifting us with a fantastic Central Texas weekend of weather!

Mornings will start off cool and comfy in the upper 60s to low 70s, afternoons will feature low 90s.  Saturday looks mostly sunny while Sunday I'm expecting more clouds and possibly some stray showers to the south and east (Bastrop, Giddings, La Grange). 

By late next week, temps meet and exceed our normal high of 98.  By the way from August 2nd through 16th, our average high is 98 and average low is 75.  That's the hottest stretch all year!

I nudged Friday to 99 and I can see the possibility of 100 by Saturday the 9th.  Not too bad considering the "mild" summer we've had so far!  In fact, July averaged 0.6 degrees below normal along with 3.7" above normal for rain.

In the Tropics, Tropical Storm Bertha moved over the Lesser Antilles Friday and could move across Puerto Rico Saturday.  The forecast curves the storm away from the Carolinas, but it bears watching for the East Coast.  In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Iselle (no threat to land) and two other systems with potential for development are out in the open waters..


Friday Night: 70 Partly cloudy and unseasonably cool.  Winds: NE 5  **ABIA could get close to the record low of 65!**
Saturday: 92 Mostly sunny.  Winds: NE 5-10
Sunday: 93 Partly cloudy with a 10% chance of showers/storms south and east.  Winds: NE 5-10.  Morning Low: 72
Monday: 94 Partly cloudy with a 10% chance of showers/storms south and east..  *Morning Low: 73
Tuesday: 95 Mostly sunny and warmer.  *Morning Low: 74
Wednesday: 96 Mostly sunny and hot.  *Morning Low: 75
Thursday: 98 Mostly sunny and hot.  *Morning Low: 75
Friday: 99 Mostly sunny and hot.  *Morning Low: 76
