AUSTIN, Texas — Expect cooler temperatures to start the weekend, but have no fear: the warming trend will eventually return to Central Texas.
We'll see a partly to mostly sunny sky on Saturday with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Cloud coverage will decrease throughout the morning into the afternoon. Winds from the north at 10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph will slowly calm throughout the day into the evening. A few clouds will linger for Saturday night as temperatures cool down into the lower and mid-40s.
Sunday will trend a touch warmer with upper 60s to low 70s. We'll experience more sunshine to close out the weekend as winds shift out of the southeast in the afternoon.
The warming trend resumes next week with the return of strong southerly flow due to an upper-level ridge. Highs will reach the low 80s by Wednesday and Thursday. We're expecting mostly cloudy skies to persist through the majority of next week as moisture levels increase, but we're not expecting much rain.
We'll be monitoring the possibility of a cold front moving through by the end of next week. The current forecast calls for just a 10% shower chance for the middle of next week and a 20% chance by Friday.
Clouds slowly clearing throughout the day. North wind at 5 to 10 mph. Gusts up to 20 mph.
A few clouds and cool. Northeast wind at 5 mph.
Plenty of sunshine and warmer. Northeast wind eventually shifting out of the southeast at 5 mph.
