Forecasting Austin and South Central Texas Weather Since 1984

TK’s Special Briefing….

Austin / Travis County and South Central Texas Weather Update #8
Prepared by UT University/Incident Meteorologist Troy Kimmel
735am CT – Monday / 17 November 2014

… Morning Lows So Far Across our Area on this Monday Morning …
AGHT2/Great Hills NWS Coop Station (Arboretum Area)……..   26.6 F / 7:01am
KATT/Austin City -Camp Mabry (NWS ASOS)…….   30 F / 6:59am
KAUS/Austin Bergstrom International Airport (FAA ASOS)……..   30 F / 6:59a
Lakeway 2E (LCRA Hydromet)………    26 F
Pflugerville 3SSE (LCRA Hydromet)………   27 F
Jollyville 2SW (LCRA Hydromet)……….   28 F

The reinforcing arctic air continues to settle south southeastward across the area.

With a mostly clear sky.. and given the newest arctic surge.. I expect a widespread,
and potentially hard, freeze for the area tonight into tomorrow morning. Temperatures
are likely to fall into the 20 to 25 degree F range in outlying and low lying areas with
downtown Austin likely seeing temperatures of 29 to 32 degrees F. Average lows
across the city/metro area will be in the mid and upper 20s. Please remember your pets..
pipes and plants…

A climate note:
It should be also noted that the record low temperature for tomorrow morning, at both
Camp Mabry (temperature records back to 1898) and at Austin Bergstrom International
Airport (temperature records back to 1943), is 26 degrees F set on 18 November 1959.
I think these records have a good chance of being tied or broken.. especially at Austin
Bergstrom International Airport.

I’ll continue to keep you advised..
