Cold Front Today
Thursday, January 29th, 2015
After several days of unseasonably warm weather, a cold front has pushed through. You'll probably notice the breezy north winds and thickening cloud cover overnight. A couple sprinkles even developed in our northern counties behind the front. Now prepare for highs that will be 20 degrees colder on Friday and a wet weekend ahead.
This latest cold front isn't potent enough to earn an "Arctic Blast" designation, but you will want your coat Friday through the weekend since temps will run 20 degrees colder than what we've seen lately. Our normal high is 63 and I'm forecasting 59 Friday, 58 Saturday and 62 Sunday. We'll have a week's worth of high temps at or below normal.
Friday continues to look cloudy but mainly dry. I'm holding onto a 10% chance for a stray shower - best chance late. Saturday had been looking like a washout, but now it looks like the rain will be much more scattered as opposed to steady and the morning may actually be fairly dry Saturday. Rain is most likely Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning, with the heaviest likely in the Hill Country. Most parts of the Metro will likely be in the 1/4" to 1/2" range while our Hill Country counties (where the rain is most needed) could get an inch or more.
TWO MORE COLD FRONTS:
The next cold front moves through Sunday dropping our lows by Monday morning into the 30s with highs about 10 degrees cooler than normal in the low 50s Monday afternoon. We have a small chance of rain Tuesday and Wednesday, then a second cold front moves in Wednesday clearing our skies and dropping our temps a bit for next Thursday. Neither front looks strong enough to bring a freeze to Austin, but some outlying spots could fall into the low 30s.
