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

(1) An upper level low pressure area has moved across Texas in the overnight hours and has allowed the first strong cold front of the fall season to move across the IH35 corridor. A part of the upper low pressure area still remains to the west so we’ll continue to see scattered rain showers and thunderstorms in the cooler post frontal air today into this evening before ending in the late night hours.

(4) Skies clear late tonight with plenty of sunshine and a more fall like weather pattern for Tuesday through the weekend as temperatures warm up again a bit.

NWS/Weather Prediction Center rainfall guidance shows additional rainfall of less than 0.25 inch today otherwise the next seven day forecast period looks mostly dry.

MY FORECAST CONFIDENCE OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS…
A very high confidence forecast over the next seven days.
