What a wonderful weekend it was. Temperatures started out in the upper 40s to mid 50s both Saturday and Sunday morning. Those were some of our coldest mornings in over 170 days, since mid-April! Afternoon temperatures over the weekend we’re warm, but close to the average for this time of the year.

Get ready for another quiet but warm week as we move into the first full week of October. Our high temperatures will gradually warm a degree or two through Thursday. A weak cold front is set to move into Central Texas Thursday into Friday and that should help begin a little “cooling” trend. We may see another push of milder air move in on Friday behind the initial front, and that looks to help cool our temperatures off even more by the weekend.

Our average high for this time of the year sits around 85°. Sadly, we’re expecting above normal temperatures to remain in the forecast for Central Texas this week. Monday and Tuesday remain in the mid 80s to around 90°. By the time Wednesday and Thursday arrive, we look to warm into the upper 80s to low 90s across Central Texas. It’ll still be warm behind the weak front on Friday with highs in the mid 80s to near 90°. We should be back to around the average for the weekend with highs in the mid to upper 80s forecast.

Hopefully you’ve been able to enjoy the crisp and cool mornings over the past week. Our morning low temperatures are also forecast to warm up like our afternoon temperatures. Monday will be the coolest morning of the week. We should see lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s Tuesday into the weekend.

One thing that may be different in our weather this week will be cloud cover. We should see more high level clouds building in from the south and southwest throughout the week. A hurricane is forecast to move into west-central Mexico this week and that should allow more moisture to work its way into Central Texas. Sadly it won’t be in the form of rain… just clouds.

In fact, humidity levels this week look to remain in the pleasant to comfortable category. Moisture levels are forecast to increase some throughout the work week, but it will have little impact on how humid it’s going to make us feel in Central Texas. With the relatively dry air in place, fire danger remains elevated! Be mindful of your outdoor activities.

The faucets remain shut off for the week. Dry air wins and our forecast stays dry. Forecast models are hinting at some light Pacific moisture building into Central Texas into the following work week. Sadly totals do not look great, if any. For the time being, rain prospects are not looking great.
