Looks like another very hot week across Central Texas! It's slim but at least we have a chance for showers & storms to kick things off. Otherwise our forecast calls for highs to continue near or slightly over 100 each afternoon.
Yesterday's storms brought some heavy downpours especially to the
2.56" Johnson City
0.47" Cedar Park
0.22" Dripping Springs
0.20" Round Rock
0.19" Lago Vista
0.14" Lady Bird Lake

A fairly robust pocket of storms died out around Dallas last night, leaving "outflow" and other boundaries that have instigated new storms during the night. Most of today's rain will be brief but potentially heavy.
In light of the sweltering heat, we absolutely welcome the showers! After today, high pressure is forecast to get stronger over the middle of America, squashing our rain chance down to 10%. We can't rule out a sea breeze shower or two each of the next several afternoons but, for the most, it'll simply be hot and dry through Friday. Then the pattern shifts and high pressure is expected to move west, allowing a deepening trough of low pressure to overtake the Mississippi Valley. If the forecast pans out, a weak front could be moving into the Lone Star State this weekend with a chance for additional showers & storms. Keep your fingers crossed! See the 7 Day Forecast for more.
Metro Austin hit a high of 103 yesterday.
Be sure to wear sunscreen, drink lots of extra water, take frequent breaks from the outdoors, and stay inside during the hottest part of the afternoon for maximum safety.
