AUSTIN, Texas — We're tracking low visibility across Central Texas Sunday morning in addition to a damp and dreary forecast. Cloudy skies, muggy conditions, and scattered showers will remain possible through much of the day on Sunday.
A Dense Fog Advisory has been extended through 12 p.m. Sunday for the entire KVUE area.
A cold front will move through Sunday night into Monday morning, bringing with it a chance for additional showers and even a few isolated storms for some of our northern counties. Fortunately, it looks like the main risk for severe weather will stay to the well to the north of the KVUE area.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined portions of north Texas in the "slight" – level 2 of 5 – risk for severe storms, but this does not include any part of Central Texas. At this point, the severe weather risk in the KVUE viewing area appears to be very low, but a strong storm still cannot be completely ruled out.
A warm front moved through Central Texas on Saturday night and kept overnight low temperatures well above normal. With the warm front to the north, Sunday will be noticeably warmer despite the thick cloud cover, with afternoon highs in the lower 70s. Scattered showers and drizzle will remain possible through the day. It will also be a touch on the breezy side with a south-southeast breeze gusting up to about 20 mph.
The cold front will likely begin moving into the Hill Country after about midnight, bringing with it a broken line of showers and storms. It looks like the front should be clearing the Interstate 35 corridor after about 5 a.m. on Monday morning, and drier air will quickly move in on the backside as the wind shifts out of the west-northwest.
Conditions should quickly begin to clear for Monday afternoon, and sunshine is expected to return along with temperatures in the lower to mid-70s.
Another front is expected to move through the area Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. This front will bring dry air and cooler conditions to Central Texas for the middle of the week but does not appear to have any rain associated with it. Dry conditions will persist throughout most of the forecast period with slight rain chances not returning until the weekend.
The KVUE Storm Team will closely monitor the latest data and will let you know if the forecast changes.
Cloudy with a 60% chance of scattered showers. South/southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph, gusts of 20 mph later in the evening.
