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

(1) South southeasterly surface winds are returning area wide with low clouds, patchy morning fog and warmer temperatures across the area through tomorrow.

(3) Manual and computer forecast guidance would suggest that clouds will break a bit by Wednesday before picking back up again for the remainder of the week pretty much through our upcoming weekend. Some rain chances will return to the forecast as a weak cold front moves just south of the area late Thursday but returns back northward as a warm front Friday and Friday night.

(3) These rain chances will linger until another cold front, more Pacific in nature, will moves eastward through the area on Sunday with some breaks in the clouds by late Sunday into Sunday night and Monday.

NWS/Weather Prediction Center rainfall guidance suggests, on average, less than 0.05 inch over the next seven day forecast period.

MY FORECAST CONFIDENCE OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS…
A medium to high confidence forecast through the new week, our upcoming weekend and into Monday.
