AUSTIN / UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS WEATHER
SEVEN DAY WEATHER HEADLINES
AND MY 7 DAY FORECAST CONFIDENCE …

(1) Surface high pressure has settled southeastward out of the Rockies and into Texas. As a result, skies will be mostly clear with temperatures forecast to be a little below seasonal averages through midday tomorrow.

(2) As high pressure moves east of the area, a south southeasterly surface wind returns tomorrow and continues through the weekend with a rapid increase in cloud cover by tomorrow afternoon. Expect some rain chances to return to the forecast by late tomorrow night into Saturday as temperatures warm back to above seasonal averages.

(3) On Sunday, a cold front will move south through our area with a little cooler temperatures and lingering overrunning cloud cover persisting through the first half of next week as the front becomes stationary along the Texas coast.

(4) By Wednesday, a second series of cold fronts, stronger in nature, will move southeastward through Texas and off the Texas coast with well below average temperatures by the latter part of next week (and just beyond the seven day forecast period).

NWS/Weather Prediction Center rainfall guidance suggests, on average, less than 0.25 inch of rain over the next seven day forecast period.

MY FORECAST CONFIDENCE OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS…
A high to very high confidence forecast through Sunday then a medium to high confidence forecast Monday into Wednesday.
