Austin / Travis County and South Central Texas Weather Update #8
Prepared by UT University/Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
345am CT – Friday / 08 December 2017
.. No Further Precipitation Expected ..
.. Roadways Drying Out in Many Areas but a Few Slick Spots are Possible Especially
in Areas East through Southeast and South of the Austin Metro Area ..
.. Freeze Warning into the Morning as Skies Slowly Clear ..
.. OTHER THAN THE FREEZE WARNING, NO WATCHES/ADVISORIES/WARNINGS, AS
ISSUED BY NWS/AUSTIN-SAN ANTONIO, REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR THE AREA ..
The upper air disturbance has now generally moved east of our area.
Skies are clearing currently along and west of the IH35 corridor with temperatures at or just
above the freezing mark in the IH35 corridor counties. As the clearing trend continues to push
southeastward in the wake of the disturbance, I expect to see temperatures settle down a few
degrees before the Sun rises over the Austin area at 7:15 am CT.
I expect only a few clouds today with an otherwise mostly sunny sky from sunrise through the
balance of the day with temperatures rising into the upper 40s at least by midday then into the
50s this afternoon.
Once again, I strongly feel this will be my last statement on this weather event (no jokes, please).
Have a good Friday and a safe weekend…
