… Freeze Likely Areawide Tonight …

Under a partly cloudy sky, temperatures will fall into the mid and upper 20s in the outlying
and low lying areas tonight with lows through much of the Austin metro area around 28 to 30
degrees. Downtown Austin will stay a little warmer with temperatures of 32 to 34 degrees.

… Watching Rain Chances for the End of the Week …

By the end of the weekend.. with the approach of an upper air low pressure disturbance..
we’ll begin to set up an “overrunning” pattern where moisture from the Gulf of Mexico
returns and rides up and over the colder surface based air. Clouds and very slim rain
chances will return late Friday into our upcoming weekend.

The latest guidance suggests that another reinforcing cold front will move across the area..
ushering in more of this unseasonably cold air.. by Sunday.

I’ll continue to keep you informed..  tk
