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

(1) Surface high pressure is east of the area with a return south southwesterly surface wind flow with a quick warming of temperatures – to well above average – through tomorrow.

(2) A dry Pacific cold front will move eastward through our area by midday tomorrow as sunshine continues late week into the weekend. While temperatures will fall a few degrees with the front, temperatures will remain above average and will warm again by Sunday and Monday.

(3) Another relatively weak cold front will move into the area by Tuesday night with clouds increasing ahead of the system late Monday into Tuesday. Any rain chances would hold off until just beyond the seven day forecast period.

Based on NWS/Weather Prediction Center guidance, no rainfall is forecast for our IH35 corridor over the next seven day period.

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