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

(1) A more stable weather pattern will prevail today into the weekend. Even so, slim rain chances will linger with the return of a bit more sunshine through the weekend.

(2) The air mass overhead will, once again, turn a bit more unstable once we get into late Sunday into early next week. There are some indications that another cold front will move southward into Texas by the latter part of next week which will further result in increased rain chances.

NWS/Weather Prediction Center rainfall guidance is predicting an average rainfall of
0.25 to 0.50 inch over our area over the next seven day forecast period.

MY FORECAST CONFIDENCE OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS…
A high to very high confidence forecast through the 7 day forecast period.
