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

(1) A slim chance of rain and thunderstorms remain in the forecast today but overall a drier and more stable weather pattern returns through the weekend and into next week. Temperatures will rebound to near to slightly above seasonal averages.

(2) I’m watching the tropics again over the weekend into next week with yet another possibility of a weather system becoming better developed over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico as it moves northwestward toward the east coast of Mexico. The system will remain far enough south that it will not, at this point, affect our local area.

Based on NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance, less than 0.10 inch of rainfall is forecast (today) for our IH35 corridor over the next seven day forecast period.

MY FORECAST CONFIDENCE OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS…
Very high confidence today through the weekend through much of next week.
