The Air Will Warm
Clouds will be slow to clear this afternoon. More of the clearing should be in the Hill Country allowing highs to approach 50.
December 7 records:
Austin-Mabry's high of 31 is the coldest high for December 7, beating the old record of 36 in 1972.
Austin-Bergstrom's high of 31 is the coldest high for December 7, beating the old record of 40 in 1972.
Austin-Bergstrom measured a TRACE of snow late last night, tying the record set in 2005
Winds will be light south to southeast during the afternoon. With clouds clearing during the afternoon, temperatures will rise to the 40s.
Futurecast shows a small chance of rain tomorrow possibly changing over to freezing rain east of I-35 early Tuesday morning after another cold front passes. Highs tomorrow will be back in the lower 40s. What precipitation there may be Tuesday morning will end before 9 or 10. A partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky is expected Tuesday with highs back in the lower to middle 40s.
Dry weather continues on Wednesday as highs peak from the middle 40s to around 50. The next upper trough approaches from the west coast. Rain returns to the forecast Thursday night to Friday night/Saturday morning. Highs Thursday will be near 50, warming to the middle 50s Friday.
The extended forecast shows dry and mild weather next weekend as some area highs will be in the 60s. Model guidance now tells us that the weekend will be dry with a partly cloudy sky.
